Great garden and location. We barely spent any time in Cafayate other than to sleep, we drove all day to a bodega and a museum, but it was a great place to come back to.


Everything was absolutely perfect apart from the breakfast which was very poor. This wouldn't stop me recommending it to others though. The staff were really nice, especially the lady who worked in the mornings. We had a fantastic stay.

Nice staff. We checked in at midnight around 1am, and the lights in front door and lobby still kept lighting up. The staff was waiting for us as they promised in the mails. Nice service. The double room we stayed is very close to a busy road. Kinda noise at day time. Toilet was broken at the 2nd day. Most staff only speak Spanish. However, overall still a very nice Hostel.


decent hostel. only stayed there a single night. nice backyard, decent location.


We had a wonderful time at Rusty-K!


We had a gorgeous double ensuite room just off the picturesque courtyard. Not like other hostels we have stayed in so far, a little like a boutique hotel. Great location for the main square, shopping, food, bus and bodegas. Staff very friendly and helpful. Great hot showers and chilled out vibe. Only negatives - standard Argentinian hostel breakfast (which we are a bit tired of!), no laundry service as advertised, no lockers/locked external door. Best hostel we have stayed in, Cafayate is great!


Great place, hostel and people. A must stay!


The best hostel in South America!! Clean, spacious rooms. Great outdoor patio space for sipping wine in the sun. The staff is so welcoming and friendly. Made me feel at home.


Beautiful hostel for an unbeatable price.


Rusty-K was great! The owners are very friendly and helpful.
