Good stop to visit Calafate with a snug backyard. The host was helpful and welcoming. Beds were clean and the atmosphere was fine. 5-10 mins from the city center.


The owner was very helpful in organizing tours and transfers for us. Excellent breakfast. Great location close to the main street and bus station.


The position of the hostel is close to the bus station and the main street of the city. Rooms are very minimal and the toilet is preatty basic and without a proper shower. Breakfast simple but ok. despite the simplicity and the lack of beauty of the toilet, the price is really affordable.


Best hostel we stayed in while in Patagonia! Couldn't recommend this place enough. We stayed in the a frame tiny house one night and it was very fun but a bit pricey. I stayed a second night in the dorm a second night and was just as happy. The hostel in right next to the bus station and the Main Street so walking was very easy. The wifi was the fastest in Patagonia but you had to be in the garden or common area to use it. The best part however is the owner SO helpful!!

The cabanas are nice and cosy for 2 people, if the third bed downstairs is occupied it is really crowded and to small. The bed was nice however the shower took forever to become hot, but is really nice when hot water is running. Cleanliness is ok but because of the old stuff, like showercurtain, sink was hanging lose as well as the bathroomdoor it shows poor and dirty. Very quitely situated unless there is a footballmatch right behind the cabanitas(footballfield) really noisy then.

Las Cabanitas is exactly what you'd expect: tiny cabins in a backyard. The cabins themselves are decent and have good heating, but each is a stand-alone. There is no common area, and even during continental breakfast you feel like you're intruding in someone's living room and it's a bit awkward. If there was a better common are to relax, i think that would be a huge improvement, as this is a small town and if travelling alone it's impossible to meet people.
