The staff at the hostel were very warm, helpful and welcoming. The location is a little far from center of town, about 40min walk, but on a nice day the walk is great and easy and it gives you a great opportunity to get a feel of more then just the center. Public buses available and taxis to center are about AR 50-70 depending to where. Another plus, very close to airport. The atmosphere, very relaxing. Only comment, they need more couches for lounging.

Very enjoyable place to stay
The staff is really kind and helpfull! Breakfast was great with every morning fresh croissants! The hostel itself is about 45 min walk to the city centre, but they'll call you a taxi if you ask:). The atmosphere in the common room is great. Also perfect cooking facilities and enough room to sit.
croissants and coffee/tea for breakfast, about 30 minute walk from downtown ushuaia, friendly staff, good wifi, and value for the money. close to the airport, about 5 minutes away, so if you just need a place to stay before leaving on an airplane, this will do.
It was ok, nothing super special. Location is far away from everything. Staff was good. No real place to relax and meet fellow travelers. I'd stay again because it was clean and not so expensive for Ushuaia
Landlady thinks we're her children, and we're not. No drinking on beds, no wall sockets in rooms (can't charge your phone at night), can't wash your clothes in the sink, no kitchen use after 22:30. It's ridiculous. She haunts around the house giving orders to all her guests. The rooms are TINY, no private restrooms. You should really stay away from this hostel if at all possible.

Pros: Nice clean hostel at the bottom of the world, with helpful staff. Cons: The location - 25min walk to town or 5min ride. There's only 1 shared bathroom per gender so be prepared to see naked europeans in the morning and people using stalls while brushing your teeth. My private room opened out near the kitchen and the acoustics brought in all the morning noise. The breakfast was a small croissant and coffee. No real atmosphere.. Goto the Dublin in town to meet other travelers.
A very good place to stay at! Nice and helpful staff. We could park our rentalcar at in the garden and lock the gate. They upgraded our booking from two dubble room to an apartment, really nice! I would stay there again.
Really nice hostel like spending ski vacacions in the mountains ;)
La posta is a nice hostel located near to the airport and in a walking distance to the city. Staff was friendly and helpfull, althought one might take care on following their advices for activites/prices since in several ocasions we found cheaper ways to do the activities that they recomended us! Despite that, the rooms were OK but one thing that we didnt like was the lack of curtain on our room
Very clean hostel with fast wifi and helpful staff, the only downside is the location, it´s about a 30 min walk to the city center, but some of the tours will pick you up from the hostel. Would recommend.
Great place. $5 can ride or 20-30 min walk to downtown. Bus to TdF will pick you up and drop you off at hostel so being a bit out of the city isn't the worst thing ever.
Very convenient to airport, I walked. Nice staff. Clean well managed place.
Great hostel, besides the location ;) The hostel has everything you need, great staff, good service (e.g. free laundry) and a great atmosphere. The only downside is that it is located 20-25min. outside the center of Ushuaia. On the other hand, it is close to the airport, in case you arrive/leave by plane..
Actually it's a great Hostel, good beds, amazing shower, quite good breakfast, but the atmosphere is more like in a hotel and the staff also acts like that. Which is bad for travelers on the budget, as the they always want to get you a taxi or overpriced transfer for everything and are not very helpful, when it comes to alternatives. Knowing the routes of the 3 buses in town are the least I expect. The Hostel is close to the nationalpark, but very far away from the center (about 50 min walking).
La Posta is a solid, well run, efficient hostal. The only thing lacking was more of a community feel. For whatever reason, I stayed in/visited other hostels in Ushuaia and others were the same with only one exception.
We loved this hostel! Super clean, comfy beds, good kitchen, it was almost like a hotel! Only thing is it is a bit far from the center. Its walkable, but its definitely an inconvenience. Other than that, we had a great stay and were sorry we only spent one night there!
We stayed only tow one night but we fall in love with the great atmosphere in the hostel, great staff and cute place, wish we had more nights there.
A very nice hostel. 2 kitchens available to residents. Only downside is location, 30 mins from the town, however it was our exercise for the day!!
I liked very much of the La Posta. The only negative point is its location. It's far to center of Ushuaia. If you are lazy (is not my case) to walk, you'll be have problem because you pay'll for a taxi twice every day. But, except this, La Posta is excelent! I recommend it.
