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.

    The place was awesome, super clean, great amenities. They booked all our trips for us, which ended up cheaper than we could find online, and helped with information about the activities and the city too. We stayed in the winter and the place was warm and inviting, and the views were amazing. The TV and WiFi worked well, and there’s a luggage room if you need it. Only criticism is that we’d probably find another option for lunch besides the lunchbox they offer. Overall, awesome experience.

    Friendly and welcoming staff, warm rooms and a nice open fire every night. Views from the hostel are fantastic! It had a resturant feel in the evening and the kitchen was lacking some basic equipment. We had to ask the bar staff for glasses, a cork screw, can opener and bowls, plus tha pans were very limited. Very relaxed atmosphere and always very clean, staff cleaned and made the beds every day. 10 min walk to town and close to the bus station. Note a 4% tax for card payment. Would recommend

    The place is great, staff is helpful, room is very clean and warm, except that it’s a bit noisy until 12am Recommend to set quite time during 11pm to 7 am While most tours will start in early morning Also a group of Korean visitors made the kitchen very dirty. Some reminder sign or cctv should be set to ensure users clean their own stuff(although this is basic)

    One of the best hostels we’ve stayed in, beautiful building with underfloor heating and amazing views! Great cooking facilities and helpful and friendly staff who helped advise us on tours. Quite quiet and chilled out but a nice space to relax in.

    America del Sur was a wonderful place to stay! I truly have no complaints, except...the bed I slept in had bed bugs! I only noticed the bites after I had left, so I hope they have fixed this, because otherwise I found the hostel to be great. The rooms were clean, there was ample space to socialize and relax, and the restaurant was very conveient. On top of that, they make it very easy to book any of the tours you want, and they´re located just a short walk from the center.

    It is a good hostel if you want to take an excursion to one of the many glaciers nearby or to make a trip to El Chaltén and go on a hike. The members of the staff are nice as the will help your planning your tour. Ask about the additional costs according the tour(s), because they are not always displayed on their "tour" wall, though. The kitchen is big and the restaurant has an amazing view. Two downsides though: not enough kitchen equipment and it always smells like barbecue in the lobby.

    Best hostel in Calafate! Big living and dining area with great food to buy. Kitchen is fine but not great. Staff super helpful. Good wifi and great views! Definitely stay here. Only thing would be rooms are quite small, but who cares.
