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.

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 ;)


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.


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.


Celine is a gem. The place is excellent all round with only the distance from town 30 min being a neg. highly recommend.

Would be nice if people didn't linger in the early morning hours next to the rooms by the entrance. Maybe they should be asked to hang out by the back kitchen as they can be loud/annoying.


Really lovely hostel, warm, great breakfast, two kitchens, friendly people and generally great facilities. Biggest let down was location - 20 mins fast walk from town was fine for us as we took a taxi ( was about £6-£7) but could be a bother after an evening meal walking back.


Really nice hostel and amazing people! Staff is super helpful no matter the situation!


Friendliest staff that goes above and beyond your typical needs. Also, this place deserves all the awards for cleanliness. It is fantastic!


The only real downside to this hostel is that it's a bit out of the way from the rest of town; it's about a 40 peso taxi ride to the port. The staff is very helpful, the hostel is VERY clean, and there were two kitchens for us to use, and they were fully equipped (there were ovens in both!).


Very good place to stay, kind staff and beautiful the accommodations.
