Fantastic hostel, the staff treated me like family and I made so many great friends. Social atmosphere without being overly crazy. The staff helped me plan all of my activities and had tons of insider tips. There is also a decent restaurant in the hostel which was nice for the first night when I got into town and was too tired to go out. They provided towels, a wonderful breakfast, and had lunch boxes available as well. I highly recommend this hostel!

Mateo and the rest of the crew were very accommodating and super friendly. The location is tremendous. A 3 minute walk one way to the bus station and a 3 minute walk another way to the supermarket and the main avenue. I was happy with my stay. I would definitely return

Great hostel . Staff was very laid back, friendly and helpful. They have maps of each continent that they have guests add their name to next to where you live. Thought that was a nice, personal touch to show how they connect with guests! My 4 bed shared dorm was in its own building behind the hostel. There were two rooms in the structure, with a private bath in my dorm and another out in the hall. There was a small kitchen in this building as well. Big lockers in hall to store bags.

Front desk staff were very friendly and helpful with alall questions. In terms of hygiene, the bidet in hostel was not properly cleaned during my stay and cleaning generally could have been better. I did not like the gas fire in the hostel bedroom, as it adds a risk of carbon monoxide, especially as there is no proper ventilation. Common areas in hotel lovely.

Great location, staff are very helpful and you're only two mins from the bus station. This was our second stay at Shilling as we used it on our return from Torres del Paine, so we definitely recommend this hostel.

I had a lovely stay. The staff is very helpful and friendly, provided a lot of information on local trips and even booked for me. I had a large room for myself with a comfortable bed. They have a nice relaxing area and nice restaurant. Definitely recommend this hostel.

Schilling is just 2 mins from the bus station and 5 mins from the main road in town. The staff are really helpful, the rooms are clean and whilst there's no kitchen to use they offer dinner at a reasonable price!

More of a hotel then a hostel, but value is very good. Breakfast is great, staff are helpful and location is perfect, only issue is atmosphere as it is mostly private rooms with very few backpackers

Amazing staff couldn't be more friendly and helpful. We stayed there on two separate occasions. Ramero and his family helped us to find alternative accomidation when they were full and also helped us to book our onward travel as booking busses around Argentina has to be done in person by foreign travellers at this time. Highly recommend. Thanks again.

Had there been something above "excellent" in this review form, I would definitely have ticked it for the "staff" - from booking tours for me a month before my arrival through my time at the hostel to my departure they were extremely supportive and made me feel at home! The hostel itself is really cosy, with a good wifi connection. Location is great too - just 3 min from the main street with all the travel agencies and supermarkets. Definitely tops my "best hostels ever stayed at" list!

One of the best hostels i've stayed in! the place is really cosy, beautifully furnished and decorated. Nice and clean rooms (i had 1private ensuite), common areas and good facilities like free teas for guests, money exchange (at good rates), homemade sandwiches to take away for the day. Breakfast is excellent, with home-made cakes, drinkable yogurt (delicious!) marmalades etc.. We tryied the restaurant as well, reasonable prices and very good food. Nice staff at reception and restaurant.
