Overview

The highlight of America del Sur Hostel has got to be the view over Lake Argentino from our huge windows – which you can gaze at while eating your free breakfast every morning. We've also got underfloor heating to keep your toes toasty and a fireplace to hang out around in our cosy common area when it's chilly. Our classic Patagonian wooden building is inspired by our surroundings, so it's sure to get you in the mood for an adventurous trip into the nearby Andes.

Location

While it feels like we're in the middle of nature, we're only a 15-minute walk from the centre of El Calafate. El Calafate Bus Terminal is about the same distance away, and it's a 20-minute car journey to El Calafate Airport. We'll arrange a transfer for you if you get in touch in advance. We're close to one of the world's most epic glaciers, Perito Moreno, which you can visit on a guided bus trip. It takes about an hour and a half to get there (it's well worth it!).

Rooms and Dorms

Our private rooms and dorms – some with shared bathrooms and others with en-suites – are cleaned every day. You'll get your bed made, too, for that hotel-like experience. Double rooms have cable TV and a safety deposit box. Linen is included in all rooms, and there's free Wi-Fi so you can Skype home from bed. Lockers help to keep your stuff safe while you're sleeping or out exploring.

Extras and activities

Our hostel is clean and comfy, designed to suit everyone from solo travellers to sociable couples, and people love our friendly, helpful staff. You can order well-priced Argentine grilled meats or Patagonian meals in our restaurant and bar, or cook in our guest kitchen if you prefer. We can store your backpack for you in our luggage room if you're checking out but leaving El Calafate later in the day.

    Hi there! I stayed here for one night, due to the corona lockdown. The rooms are simple but clean. The staff is absolutely amazing. They really helped us to stay calm and to assist us in any way they could! Thanks guys, I really felt at home!

    The hostel itself is genuinely excellent! But, during our stay the coronovirus began making travel and access around Argentina very challenging. It was during this period that the hostel staff were exceptional, keeping us informed of developments, organising transfers to the airport and generally making sure all guests were attended to and helped during what was an incredibly difficult time for the staff themselves and the guests. The service would not look out of place in the best 5 star hotel.

    Fantastic hostel with great staff. I was staying here when Argentina initially went into lockdown. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly in a time that was difficult for everyone. My trip to El Calafate was cut short but when I go back I will definitely be staying here.

    This is a lovely hostel. Great place for meeting people and excellent communal area. Breakfast was the best I've had in any hostel, which included scrambled eggs. Staff are excellent, and they all have a very advanced level of English. Negatives: Rooms are small and it is pricier than some other hostels, but that's it.

    Lovely hostel. We would have stayed longer if it hadn't been for the fact that we were overcharged by US$10, and they were unwilling to fix it. Thinking they would surely fix it the next morning, we extended our stay. We were charged the correct amount for the extension; however, the back-office manager refused to fix the $10 overcharge for the original reservation. The point is, we were charged MORE than we were supposed to & than was shown on website.

    Really liked this hostel! It’s was conveniently located not too far off the main strip & 15 minutes from the bus station! Staff were super helpful & the rooms were cosy & clean! Amazing perk is that the beds were made every day too! The only improvement could be to clean the communal bathroom before the morning & breakfast, which was average! Overall though happy with my stay here!

    Private room was not worth the money, its nice enough and the staff and atmosphere bring the score up. But really the private room was very dated, it was super loud if anyone moved or spoke upstairs and the bathroom was extremely basic. For the price of a decent hotel room in Europe I would be expecting a lot more.
