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.


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.

    Best hostel I’ve stayed in so far this trip! Really friendly and helpful staff. Can book all the tours / busses you need from reception. A great common area with bar and restaurant. Even had live music one evening. The rooms are a little basic and our bathroom door was a little broken, but the place makes up for it.

    I absolutely loved this place. It has an amazing atmosphere, an amazing view from the city and Argentinian Lake, a very good restaurant, many services including some tours and trips that you can book with them. The staff is very nice and helpful. The shower space is a bit small, but it's manageable.

    My friends and I stayed in a 4 bed room for 1 night and wish we could've stayed longer! It's about a 5-10 min walk from the bus station and 5 min walk down the hill into town. Beautiful views from the hostel and the common area was large and relaxing. Our room was clean and lockers were a good size. The staff is bilingual and were very helpful telling us how to prepare for the Big Ice trek. Would stay again.

    This is one of the nicest hostels I've ever stayed in. The common area is beautiful with great atmosphere and lovely food, beer and wines - great place to chill out during the day or in the evenings. Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful - I could book all my activities and onward travel direct from the hostel. Can't recommend it highly enough.
