The only common room is the kitchen, which has a lack of atmosphere, Not really a living room or anything. The dorms were located around a patio. So everytime you wanted to shower, you had to run in the cold brrr. The centre is a bit far away


Pros: - cheap with HI membership - good views of the city and beagle channel - Good breakfast with EGGS! Cons: - Lockers were broken in my room, they wouldn't fix them so I had to do it myself! - men's toilets have to e accessed by going outside, very annoying when its cold, like always in Ushuaia! - I stayed for 4 nights and had to change room for no apparent reason - no common area & kitchen have to be emptied after 12 midnight. Kills any form of atmosphere you manage to create!


Excellent attention. Really nice staff. No hairdryer! :( :( :( Good price for Ushuaia. The room was nice. They have a nice view of the city. A little bit far from the city centre (about 10-12 blocks but going uphill from the centre). I would come back!

Really helpful staff, but hostel is a bit of a walk out of town (uphill). Nice and hot showers, and warm rooms.


Way overpriced for the quality you get. Rooms, beds and bathrooms look like they could fall apart just looking at it. Kitchen is dirty and too small


Catch a taxi if your bag is heavy - it's a steep and longish walk from the bus station.


I mean it was liveable, but it wasnt pleasant. Its a trek up a hill far from the main throng. The security is poor, lockers all broken and front door left open - but i guess there is little crime in ushuaia. The underfloor heating made the room unbearably hot. The bed sheets didnt cover the length of the bed and s not hygienic really. The bathroom was smelly. Only good thing was breakfast was ok and wifi worked. Go elsewhere unless desparate.


An uphill trek from the main thoroughfare, but certainly worth it. Breakfast is great, and mostly self serve, including eggs, cereal, bread, and plenty of oranges to make fresh-squeezed juice. The kitchen is a great place to hang out, and the hostel dog ("Homero") is darling. The staff is incredibly helpful, even going through great pains to get us booked on a bus to Punta Arenas when all the offices were closed and on holiday.


Room was smelly, bathrooms where dirty, too expensive... There are better, cheaper and cleaner options directly downtown.


This hostel is rough around the edges, but so is Ushuaia. The location is just walkable from the citycentre. The dorms are small, clutterd, smelly but warm. The bathrooms are very basic. And the guests in the hostel are definitely tougher than the ones you meet in BA hostels. The reception closes at 24h. but I did get a key. The staff is very helpfull and the breakfast is decent. Do I recommend it? No. Will you find a better hostel in USH? I doubt it, this is the end of the world as we know it.


there was no heater in the room we had no toilet paper for 2 days there was no space (a simple hook on the wall would have done the trick) for wet towels so there were many simple things not ok BUT the staff was excellent, especially Alejandra at the reception, very helpful and uncomplicated with everything
