Nice and clean hostel on a quiet street near the central road. Staff is extremely friendly and offers great assistance in reserving excursions, transportation, ... In house restaurant offers nice food at a low price. It can take a while before the water is hot however but that's only a minor downside


Fantastic staff, lots of information, helped us with our last minute cancelled flight to Ushuaia

Great experience! The guys at Schilling made me feel at home immediately and after a few days we were sitting and talking and drinking mate like in my own living room. The staff helped everyone with everything and tried to make every wish come true. The hostel is situated in the center with only 2 blocks walking distance to the main street and the same distance to the bus station which is very concenient. One of the nicest hostels I have visited during the last years.


The kitchen is very very small, and besides it is used by people that is lodged in the Hotel area. Almost imposible to cook two couples at the same time. Wifi doesn't reach well in the four people's dorm. Atmosphere resembles more a hostel than a Backpacker's typical atmosphere. No keys for the rooms. A key for a general comunal room but never was closed. There are lockers though. Good location.


Awesome place because clean, big comfy rooms, great location 5 min walk to main St, very very helpful staff. Decor is very unique. Restaurant area very homily. Good breakfast with eggs bacon ham for a bit extra. Very comfy living. Only downside is shower pressure sucks and can't flush toilet paper and the trash bin in bathroom is teeeny tiny.


Wow, the coziest hostel I've stayed at, ever! The social areas are great, and staff are extremely awesome! Thanks Ramiro for making it a great stay. I would definitely stay here again. Breakfast was good, location was excellent, rooms and bathrooms very clean, and the restaurant inside has great food!! Thanks guys!!


Good location. Friendly staff. Temperature can be adjusted in the room. WiFi available in the room.


We were here late July, Middle of winter. Only stayed to see the sites then leave but this had everything we needed. Hot shower, decent bed, warm rooms and friendly staff. Staff assisted with information, spoke English too. Breakfast had multiple options for us to choose. Restaurant food was good quality to buy. Close to bus station and supermarket Great wifi It was nice and quiet also as it was winter. We went back again a few days later when we had a stopover in calafate


A very nice hostel with a rustic atmosphere that feels perfect for southern Patagonia. It´s a quiter place, so if you´re looking to party you can probably find rowdier hostels, but if you´re looking for clean, warm beds, a really convenient location, and very friendly and helpful staff this is the place. Breakfast is included and they have a built in restaurant where you can buy lunch and dinner if you want. The staff help you book tours to the glaciers and the shuttle to the airport.


The staff were very helpful. The hostel is very cozy and close to everything, especially the bus station to the Glacier.
