This was a very friendly place to stay. I would recommend the hostel to others.

I've stayed in Los Cormoranes with two other friends. Our stay in this hostel was absolutely terrible. Monica, the lady that welcomed us, was not welcoming at all to say the least. From the beginning of our stay she treated us like we're some kind of unwanted visitors and made sure we'll feel uncomfortable with any aspect of the hostel's utilities. She was very disrespectful and patronizing. When we checked out she literally kicked us out, without allowing us to store our luggages inside.

Big drawback was location. I knowknow ushuaia is built on a hill, but this was at the very top. Tough to walk to if you are there for a few days


Bit of a grotty hostel a long walk from the centre of town. Staff were very friendly but rooms were very tired and arranged around a very noisy centeal courtyard. Very overpriced (thpugh so is all of Ushuaia). Stayed at a better hostel much closer to town for the rest of our visit.

Pricey hostel as is to be expected in ushuaia. Paid $20 for a very cramped 8 bed and the toilets are outside which is a little inconvenient and they could have been cleaner. It has an excellent kitchen which is its redeeming feature. Staff were very helpful.


The hostel is expensive for what you get but this generally the same for the whole town. Rooms facing the outside around a courtyard. Kitchen door is left open 24/7, there is cctv, but essentially one door protecting your stuff. My room had three working lockers for 8 beds and one power point. There are a lot of small maintenance issues throughout the building eg impossible to lock window. Having said all the above I still got a few good nights sleep


beds are ok but only 4 lockers in a room with 6 beds and 3 were broken... the bathroom did smell and just generally speaking the hostel has seen better years. but, welcoming atmosphere and breakfast for argentinan standards good.


Great hostel, homey and welcoming with a good breakfast and a cute dog!


Very friendly and helpful staff.


The location is nice. The room is quite small and the bed is not so confortable. The staff is nice, they give all the information you need. Very kindly.


This property is a far walk up hill away from town, outside walk from roomd to toilets and showers. Realky poor wifi and the staff were not very helpful.


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.
