This is a fantastic hostel to stay at, the owners are super friendly and helpful and make your stay in El Bolson wonderful. We were going to stay in the dorms but then we had more friends joining us so we changed to the cabanas with no problem. The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of little tables for everyone to eat at. The cabanas where very comfortable and perfect to hang out in if you have a rainy day or just want to chill. Great great place to stay.


Friendly staff!


Valeria, Claudio and their kids made our stay special! When we lost a phone in the taxi, Valeria helped us get it back. The atmosphere is really good, the rooms look nice and clean. Claudio made us Cordero, typical Argentinian lamb!! Delicious! I'd recommend this hostel to everyone.


Pehuenia was fantastic. Perfect location close to the famous market, the supermarket, the Via Bariloche bus station and also has a beautiful view of the mountains. Towels provided. Home made jams provided for breakfast. Fantastic large kitchen with more than enough utensils. Very clean. No lockers but you feel like you don't need. The owners and their children are so incredibly friendly its like home stay. Very warm and cosy. Nice size dorms for everyones bags to fit. This place was perfect.


I loved El Bolson and the hostel was one of the main reasons! It's not exactly in the centre by the plaza but as the town is so small then it's only 5-10 mins walk away. The hosts speak good English (which is not true elsewhere in the town, understandably) and are friendly, and the hostel is clean. Good wifi. Upstairs only has four bedrooms and it has two bathrooms, so don't be too disappointed if your room is not ensuite - getting into the bathroom was not a problem. Would very much recommend.


plus: central, nice staff, well heated, hot water. minus: they charges us 10 dollars (!!!!!!!!!!) for renting the bikes for like an hours and they were crappy as hell. the kitchen is small, its difficult to cook when there is more people and its not very well equipped, the rest was fine.


fantastic place with amazing family hosts. stayed over christmas and so great to have a christmas dinner organized with everyone including the owner. meet lots of great people, got lot of great info and help and enjoyed everything about the place.


Very nice hosts!! But a bit to expensive for what you get.

Owner Comment (Hide)
I apologize if the prices seemed a bit expensive, but they correspond to the high season it is when you were housed, greetings, valeria


I stayed at Pehuenia Hostel for 2 nights. Valeria and Claudio were very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately I had trouble sleeping because of a pack of dogs in the neighborhood that not only barked but howled several times during the night. I wear earplugs and the barking and howling still woke me. Pehuenia’s WiFi was consistently fast and reliable, its kitchen was nice, but my 4-bed mixed dorm room had no lockers.
