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

Honestly the best thing about this hostel was its view. The hostel sits at the top of this rather steep hill (so if you're in bad shape, pass or use taxi's). It felt like I was at camp, but a cool camp. The evening staff doesn't speak English so checking in was fun. The rooms were nice and warm with heated floors. Bathroom was large and also warm. The dog that hangs around is awesome, just don't bother him until after 10am. AM staff was very helpful with planning excursions & getting around town
Staff was fantastic. We stayed for more than a week and had booked a dorm without bathroom. However, we got offered a dorm with a bathroom for the same money. So it was very comfortable, no problems with outside bathrooms. I really fekt like home.
