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.
