We stayed in the dorm organised in a shed located opposite to the main building across the street. That meant no internet in the room and not enough showers. Also, they struggle to provide enough cutlery in the kitchen and you need to pay the deposit to use them – and sometimes wait an the reception just to learn they have ran out of forks. Their ‘alternative’ excursions to the glacier are not that different from the regular ones – their bus just chooses less a travelled route one way.

For just one night was it ok. Room has big lockers. It's a big hostel with a lot of ppl, therefore not as cosy as other hostels. It's a little far from the center, but managebale since it is a small town. Breakfast is not included and a little overprized if you add it.

Great hostel but in the rooms the walls feel like they are made of paper so you can hear every vibration.

Nice and big hostel with very friendly staff. Good cooking facilities. Many showers and bathrooms to be used. Room was very small though and was not much space for my stuff. There is no breakfast in the price included but you can get it for extra 100 pesos which is much too expensive.

The short guy at frount desk is really unfriendly,rudely and never smell. Trust the comments,everyone said it's suck,it is .Even when u want to use a spoon,u need to pay 50 pessos for guarantee. They are not the member of 'hosteling international',but they put the picture on hostel word. There are more than 60 rooms with hundreds guests. It's horrible when u share the kithchen and bathroom with so many people

Good place to base for cheap, nice warm rooms.staff friendly and helpful ang awesome hot showers!! Towels not included and no plugs in rooms which is pretty annoying as everyone hovers in lounge area to wait in line to charge phones etc. wifi drops in and out and none in the rooms. Need some sort of social activity to get people socialising.
