The hostel was a great way to meet new people because they had good common areas where people can talk and ask each other about what they have done for the day. The staff was friendly, which made the stay even better. The whole hostel was clean and they had good wifi services.
All reviews we read about La Posta complained about it being too far out of town but it is only a short walk! Don't let the short walk put you off as this hostel is incredible and one of our favourites. Very clean, very warm, hot showers, towels provided and a great breakfast. The staff are so friendly, especially Flo, and there is two kitchens with lots of utensils. The staff were extremely helpful and booked all buses and taxi's when we needed. We loved this place.
A decent hike out of town (40 mins easy walking pace) but super cheap taxis compensate. Amazing pastry breaky from the yummy bakery next door. Friendliest staff ever!!
La Posta is such a great hostel, such friendly nice staff, so clean, delicious breakfast and the staff will help you with anything you want. I had a great stay here. Thank you for everything.
This place was so great despite being a little far from town. The staff and facilities were amazing! I cant say enough great things.
La Posta is conveniently located a 5 minute taxi ride from the airport - but inconveniently located a 30 minute walk from downtown (can be done if you're not lazy). Staff were very friendly and helpful at 24 hr-manned reception. Private room was decent, & warm breakfast was simple but delicious (tea + medialunas + bread). Attracts older crowd. Ask for buses at front desk, can be collected right outside hostel rather than in town.
Hostel reminds me on my grandma home in a good way. Its cosy, warm and super clean. Great people, with nice atmosphere.
It is a 30 minute walk to town (or 30peso taxi) but I think it is definitely worth it to avoid some of the in-town hostels. Can easily walk to the airport an the staff is great. The bus to TF Park will pick you up and drop you off there for no extra cost. Two kitchens and tons of space, you can do laundry too! It would be prefect if it was in town, but even with the walk it's still great.
+ very friedly and helpful staff-familiy ;) they made us feel welcome and they even prepared breakfast for us ar 5 am! + clean showers and always hot water! + good price for the high season - far from the center (about 20 min- to half an hour walk, but taxi only 35 AR$) - no milk for breakfast - no electicity in the room to charge the cellphone etc.
The hostel is miles from town. If you're traveling to Ushuaia, book ahed as good options are limited
If you dont mind walk for a while to reach downtown, the hostel is perfect.
The staff were excellent. It was a busy time of the year and they were full so they checked around and found us somewhere else to stay. They gave good information on the tours available and called taxis whenever we needed them. Breakfast was good and kitchen facilities also very good. A most enjoyable stay.
Very clean hostel with friendly staff. 8 bed dorm was too hot for sleeping, so I turned down the heating. Big lockers. Dual kitchen & eating areas. Good breakfast. Met some wonderful people here. Location is way out of center, good if you like it quiet. 30 minutes walk into town or just take the bus.
Location is good being close to the airport but poor being away from the center of Ushuaia. All other conditions are perfect.
Enjoyed my stay here. The French receptionist (I forget her name!) was very helpful and friendly. The dorm room I stayed in on the second floor was clean and spacious. It's about a 25 minute walk from the center of Ushuaia, so keep that in mind, but it's also much closer to the airport.
Perfect Hostel! Quiet, lots of space, clean and extremely helpfull and friendly staff, even in busy times! Thank you very much Miriam and Sol!
A great place to stay in Ushuaia. You can walk to it from the airport in under 30 mins surrounded by amazing scenery. It's a 15-20 min bus ride to the centre but taxis are plentiful (about 30 pesos). Really clean and a great atmosphere to meet others if travelling alone. Flo at reception is full of great advice & very friendly. Would happily stay here again.
We stayed for 4 nights in the 6 bed-dorm and sometimes the room had an undefinable smell. The staff was really nice and helpfull! The breakfast only includes medialunas and coffee/ tea which is nice for people who like medialunas like us :-). It's a 30 minute walk from the centre, you can take a bus or hitchhike. (good: they have two kitchens! bad: the bathroom is not attached to the room)
