Showers weren't hot and there isn't good wifi outside the common area. Staff and kitchen facilities were good.


Everything is fine with this hostel: rooms, breakfast, location, etc. The living room is perfect to meet new people and WiFi is great. Marisa the hostess is very nice and helpful. Showers are powerful with lasting hot water. If I go back to Ushuaia I would definitely stay at this hostel again. PS they have an amazing dog :)


The kitchen dining area was fantastic! We really loved it! The people that were there when we were also made it a very happy memorable experience!


Only stayed 1 night. Seemed to be a good hostel.


I can't express enough how helpful the staff is and how great my stay was. We ended up unexpectedly arriving a day in advance and the guys couldn't have been better at accommodating us. When it came to figuring our plans, costs and itineraries they go above and beyond, in addition to having a laid back and fun atmosphere. It's clean, has good vibes and great company!

Located at a 15 min walk from the bus station and a 10 min walk from a grocery store. Is not noisy so you can sleep and if you like to party they host BBQ's with local asado and unlimited wine. From there you can book trips to the glacier and other adventures. ****Note: They only take cash. Great place to stay, warm atmosphere, the staff is great and will help you, it's a perfect place to chillax after a long day hiking or visiting the glaciar. Thanks Fede and Nacho!


We had a very nice stay here.The room was a bit small, but clean. Bathroom was a bit dirty the first morning, but clean afterwards. It is a small, cosy hostel, so you easily meet other people. The barbecue they organized was delicious and we had a lot of fun with the other guests. Breakfast was simple but good. The staff is very friendly and helpful! 'City center' is only a 7 minute walk.Wifi worked well as long as not too many people wanted to use it at once. I definitely recommend Nakel Yenu.


We only stayed in this hostel 1 night, arriving on the bus from Ushuaia at 2:00am and leaving at 7:00am for the bus to the Glacier and then onwards. We caught a taxi from the bus station as I think it is too far for walking. In the short time we were there the staff were incredibly friendly, it was warm, clean and the breakfast was delicious with fresh bread. Would definitely recommend.


Stayed 3 nights in a double private. The room was spacious and the hostel was clean. The kitchen and dining area is separate from the main building and is well-equipped and large. The staff were really friendly and helpful and we took the tour to Perito Moreno glacier which was well worth it. The only downsides would be that the private rooms are literally right next to reception and the common area. It was noisy at night and the reception was playing music until 1am.


Great hostel, great location - close to town. Very helpful staff. We only stayed for one night as a stopover before catching a bus but the staff were keen to help where they could. When we arrived a big BBQ with free flowing wine was happening which everyone was involved in. It would have been fun to stay here for longer.


In total a ok hostel. The place is nice and about a 10min walk to the town.. The breakfastroom is really cosy. The only thing is that the rooms downstairs are really close to the reception what is also a commo area and it has 24h reception. That means if you have a room there like we had, it is really lood. People checking in in the middle of th night, people are talking loud in the coomon area, and you can hear noice of the street. They had no other room to change for us.


Great place and super friendly staff


Best parilla for ARS 120 we had in South America...even restaurants couldn't compete with the quality and value for the amount of food you get. Clean bathrooms, clean kitchen, great breakfast.


Enjoyed stay here. Kitchen in next door building which worked well. Staff were helpful and the rooms were clean. The location of hostel is out of the way with no views etc. Would stay here again.
