Decent place to stay in town really close to the bus stop and downtown. The man running it was unfriendly at times, however he was helpful at booking and knowledgeable of the town. You had to share the kitchen with the owners which was a bit cramped but they were tried making it work as the guest stove was down. The place shuts down at 12 which is a bit of a downer but if you are just passing through quick its a great place!

This hostel was really nice. The staff were lovely and the location is good. We had a double room which was spacious and the bed was comfortable. The room was pretty expensive but everything is in El Calafate at this time of year. The one down side is the kitchen for guests to use. It is beyond basic, making it difficult to cook your own food. Hostel is very clean, it is cleaned every day.

Ok hostel. I think you'll be able to find better somewhere else in town, however.

Gerado was super friendly and very knowledgeable about Calafate and very helpful. I really liked the hostel thanks to the staff, although the facilities were slightly older and the rooms close to each other. Still really liked it though!

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.
