A big hostel with a great kitchen and dining area, plenty of room and you are rarely waiting to use the kitchen. Rooms are small, with decent bunk beds and lockers. Annoying that there are no power plugs in the rooms and you have to leave your valuables out in common areas to charge. Plenty of showers and toilets, kept very clean. Shame that the staff we experienced were very apathetic, not overly friendly and don't know much about tourism within the town.


This was a lovely hostel, home away from home. Clean, big kitchen and nice lounge though wifi was intermittent as it is throughout bariloche. Would stay here again


A bit far from center. No breakfast included...


The hostel was real value for money. We had a private room which was nicer than hotel's 4* the price. The staff were friendly, everything was clean and the vibe was good

Staff were nice, helpful and pleasant. Good value for money. Place is clean with a nice common area with tables. Location a 15-20min walk to the bus terminal. Lockers in dorm rooms not very secure. Kitchen short of utensils


After reading some of the reviews I was pleasantly surprised with this hostel. I was expecting it to be further out of the centre but it is only 10 minutes walking. The dorms are basic but clean with good facilities. Plus the price is much cheaper than other hostels in the area :) My only minor complaint would be that in the mornings they close the bathrooms to clean them. As most people have tours leaving early this was sometimes a bit inconvenient.
