Its just the best. Beautiful, relaxing, has a really nice bar, fireplace outside and inside, great garden with hammocks, sturdy bunkbeds, good breakfast, good kitchen facilities and its easy to meet fellow travellers. Its easy to get into town by cab or bus, the market in town is good, you can buy organic vegetables and nice cheese and cervezas artisenal and the surrounding mountains are beautiful
Perfect hostel, with free yoga every night and excellent dinner for a good price. The yard is amazing!
Very beautiful hostel. Very relaxed. It is a few kilometres from town so you have to catch a bus in.
This place is not a hostel it is a resort. I came to Argentina for a restful vacation, and I never felt like I needed to leave La Casona de Odile in order to receive it. No need to list out all of the things that make this place great, I'm sure that plenty of others have done it. I can only think of a few specific fools who would regret spending several nights (or more) at La Casona de Odile.

The garden is amazing, the staff is amazing, the beds are amazing, the breakfast is amazing, the atmosphere is amazing, the amount of effort the staff puts into your stay is amazing, the hammocks are amazing. Do i need to say more? Sharon and casper
Very nice hostel, 5km from town, which is great if you want to get away from the crowds, nice park with a river, homemade beer and meals, nice rooms and breakfast. Definitely would stay here again.
I've seen a good share of hostels in my life. But this might've been the closest to the garden of eden that we've stayed at. Nice rooms, a huge garden with hammocks, breakfast with baked bread
We loved this hostel. Great location, well worth the short bus or taxi ride. We arrived before dawn on the day of our booking and were kindly let in to sit by the fire and have breakfast until we could check in. Great breakfast, great staff. Nice cosy hostel.
I've travelled extensively through Central and South America and this is one of the best hostel I've come across. Yoga, beer tastings, nightly dinners, fully-stocked kitchen, the gardens, the people, cozy fires, bike rental, close to the bus-treks-dairy farm for cheese tasting…the whole experience is magical. I will be back. I am telling my friends. You could get lost here, it's so beautiful!
Never been in a hostel like it. Fantastic setting and very well run. Being way out of town can be annoying.
Wow - this place is a gem! Met several people that raved about this place before I arrived and was ready to be disappointed, but wasn't. It is a little far out from the town, but so what. Huge grounds with hammocks and places to hang out. River running through the back of the property with a small beach to swim (not too cold in January). Cosy bar where you can also get dinner that ranges from OK to excellent. Lots of games for when it rains. Staff are great. Book ahead and don't miss out!
An amazing hostel. The back garden is the most chilled out place I've experienced on the whole trip. Amazing atmosphere here. Brilliant staff too
We we're planning to stay in La Casona for 4 nights only. Ten minutes after arriving we decided to stay for 7 nights and still we we're sad to leave after a fabulous week. La Casona is a little piece of Paradise. The hostel is cosy and charming, the garden is absolutely stunning and the staff is like a family. We had the chance of celebrating new year's with them and we couldn't have imagined a better place. They create a heartwarming atmosphere and therefore it is a great place to relax!
An absolute gem of a hostel. El Boslon is beautiful but Casona made it the unforgettable experience we had there. We had Christmas here and we could not have hoped for a better venue. The gardens are zen like, the communal areas are inviting and the atmosphere created by the wonderful staff is the best we have experienced. Can not thank you all at Casona enough for such a fabulous week.
This was a really nice hostel, but the only real issue is a significant one. The hostel is located a bus ride away from town, and the bus happens to be very unreliable. I wasted a lot of time because of that. I wasn't aware of this before I booked -- it would have been nice if the hostel had made this clear. Aside from the location issue, it's a great hostel. Clean, good staff, solid breakfast, relaxing atmosphere and large garden / backyard. It's the kind of place you could just chill at.
Great stay, wished we could have stayed for christmas. Meals from Juan are delicious :) staff is excellent and very helpfull. Highly recommend it even though it's out of town it's easy to get to by bus or taxi. Muy buena onda!! Gracias
One of the nicest places we stayed in Arg, you won't regret it

It is the most beautifull hostel that we have ever seen. The saff is very friendly and speaks very good english. The food is nice and the garden is very beautifull. But perfect is impossible. It's not close to the center, but there is a bus every hour. They recycle everything, but sometimes to much so you get confused. The BBQ we had was very good, but not enough. Still, if you go to El Bolson, you have to stay in La Casona de Odile!
we had a wonderful stay at this cosy hostel. Next to the river a huge garden close to make wonderful hikes and at night a fireplace with homemade pizza's and wine. and very helpful staff !!!

This place is beautiful. We were so happy here we extended our stay! I can't speak for the dorms but our private room was great with a lovely bathroom (and a good shower!). The garden was idyllic, and even though we meant to go hiking etc in el bolson, we stayed in the hostel the whole time. Wonderful. Marcel and team were excellent hosts and run an efficient, clean, gorgeous hostel. Take bug spray, its near a river. We were bitten.
