We only stayed at Casona de Odile for one night but it was wonderful. The staff were extremely helpful and informative and the kitchen facilities were great. I did a yoga class in the morning which was a great way to start. Although the room could have been cleaner, the lockers were large and beds comfortable. Our bathroom wasn't great - not super clean and no hot water in the morning. Breakfast was lovely with homemade jams and bread. Lovely place to hang out in hammocks in the garden.

The hostel is great, we have absolutely no complaints except the flies in the kitchen and communal areas, we're not talking 5 or 10, even 20, they are EVERYWHERE in swarms all over your food and cooking utensils, the day we left the staff said they were going to do something about it so if they do it would make the place almost perfect. The gardens are lovely, nice (but quite expensive) restaurant onsite, excellent wifi. 1 hour walk (5k) into el bolson or 50 pesos in taxi.

All the reviews are true- a must visit in your trip and plan to stay longer:) we loved the vibe, great staff, yoga, beautiful property, excellent fresh bread and real coffee, hammocks, restaurant and best wifi on our travels! Definitely go to the organic farm for cheese and ice cream and the trout farm for smoked trout:)

This place is fantastic. Lovely natural setting, nice owners, clean, well looked after, great breakfast, yoga in the morning (80 pesos), nice restaurant. It's a little way out of town but this should be considered a bonus not a drawback! Highly recommended

The nicest hostel I've ever stayed in! The property is stunning...like from a movie! Designed and built by a french artist, the grounds are meticulously maintained to create a little sanctuary outside of El Bolson. The staff is just as lovely as the property is, constantly bending over backward to make you feel at home. My girlfriend and I had to catch a bus very early in the morning which means we would have missed breakfast. Yet they still made us a plate so that we wouldn't leave hungry!

What a lovely hostel! Beautiful setting, very nice people and atmosphere. We only stayed here two nights because of a tight schedule but would have loved to stay longer. It has a very nice restaurant and they brew their own beer on the premises. Overall a very peaceful, happy place!

Heaven. Make sure you stay for at least a couple of days, because you will not want to leave. Amazing place, with wonderful staff. Looking forward to seeing you again!

Don't book anything before arriving because everyone want to stay more time! I have seen a lot of hostels in my trip and for sure this is the best one! You have all the basic needs from a hostel: good shower, comfortable bad, good breakfast and the nicest staff! But the extras are: huge beautiful garden, amazing chilling river, great home-made beer, bar/restaurant with really good food and live concerts!! About the location the staff will help you to get to the center so it is not a real issue.

Beautiful and tranquil hideaway. Perfect base for hikes but equally perfect for days sitting by the log fire, drinking wine and walking along the stream. The staff are great and breakfast was delicious. Make sure you go to the cheese farm!

It's a home away from home. If you are looking for a family-home-like atmosphere, where you eat dinners together, chillout in the garden and meet people to go hiking with then it is a place for you. If you are looking for a place to leave your backpack while you explore the city around you should reconsider.

Lovely garden, pleasant stay and no problems. Really enjoyed the morning yoga.

La Casona de Odile is, as far as I can remember, the best hostel I stayed at, all travels considered! Great atmosphere, litterally amazing staff! Really knowledgeable about all the possible activities that one can do around, and this, in a totally disinterested way, without trying to make you pay any of them, even encouraging you to camp around while trekking in the area. I highly encourage you to stay there for the longest time you can!

the hostel and staff are in one word: excellent. The best hostel weve been to in argentina (through which we travelled for 2 months). the sleeping rooms and shared room are very spacious and cosy and the garden is really something else, on sunny days the garden is a really great place to be. Staff is very welcome and helpfull. A really easy place to meet other travellers as well. Only item you should note on beforehand is that it is s bot out of town, which wasnt an issue for us though.

This is the most magical, tranquil place I've ever been. I absolutely fell in love with the property, the people (hands down best staff) and the beer. Javi is an exceptional human encyclopedia of the area (and Argentina). He's also just an exceptional human. Make time for this place. Go to the mountains. Jump in the river. Eat the bread. Do the yoga. Drink huancho's beer!!! Go to the dairy farm. Take advantage of the beautifully-stocked kitchen. 💯% will return.

Great place. Wonderful double IPA beer brewed on-site. Only 50p away by bus from the town.

Probably the best hostel i ever stayed in. If you go, don't rush it though. I just spend three days but i easily could've stayed a week. The place really calmes you down. The only downside could be that it is a bit out of town but that is why it is so spacious and they can have the great garden, so just be aware of that.
