An amazing place to stay. Fabri is an amazing host, and here more than anywhere else I've traveled in Argentina Fabri gives the place a relaxing and cosy atmosphere. It's more like spending time with family and friends than your regular hotel/hostel.

Great place to stay! Fabri is an amazing hostess. She is knowledgeable about the weather conditions and which walks to do. She made sure that we made the most of our stay and her happiness is contagious! Rooms are small but adequate, and house is slightly older. But the house is kept very clean and Fabri makes it a wonderful place to stay! Would definitely recommend staying here to everyone


My wife and I stayed here and loved it! The place is very well kept and clean, and while it offers no breakfast, the value for money was worth it. One thing not so good were the door locks. Took us a few minutes just to get our door to lock, and fiddling with it was noisy. As you hear from your neighbors every time they open/close their door. Above all was the service. The hostess, Fabri, was AMAZING! She helped so much with everything, and was so kind! Thank you :-) We highly recommend it.

The place was great and Fabriny, the staff, was very friendly and helpful. She knows the area very well and can give you advice for the different trekkings. The room is very comfortable. We had an excellent stay there and we definitely recommend it!


Fabri the hostess is a real gem, she´s very helpful with advices and all kinds of information about the hikes, There´s a small kitcdhen where guests can make their breakfast , or there is a nice panaderia nearby where you can get a tasty breakast., if you do not feel like making your own. Guests can use use the kitchen to make all other meals and there´s free tea and coffee all the day. Hot water shower work fine. We did get value for our money and a lot more due to Fabri´s nice personality


We stayed in this hostel for three nights and we liked it really much! Nice, cosy, great staff very friendly (thank you Fabri!!). Location is great, beds are comfortable, good hot shower!
