    Folk Hostel is one of the best hostels I've visited. It's a newly built house with nice amenities, friendly hosts and a super powerful heating system. Bathrooms, showers, and kitchen are super clean and underneath your bunk bed you'll find a big drawer that works as a locker where you can leave your belongings. It's walking distance from downtown, it has a supermarket one block away. I definitely recommend this hostel whether you're a solo traveller, couple or a group of friends.

    Very nice hostel with wonderful staff. I left my jacket there and they were happy to help by arranging for it to be transported on a bus to El Chalten. The kitchen is great, it's very close to the bus station, the rooms are clean, and the beds are comfy. Great hostel.

    Super quick wifi. 7 min walk from the terminal and 10 min walk into town. Lovely dorms that are very modern with your own plug and sooo warm! Breakfast included- one of the nicest hostels I’ve stayed in Patagonia!

    Nice atmosphere, great staff. Low season, so the place was really quiet and calm. Breakfast was adequate, now wow. Individual lights at bed a little too bright. No key available for shared rooms (had not seen it before, a little unnerving at first), but lockers OK inside. Would definitely come back and recommend.

    Great free breakfast everyday! Floors in room were dirty, but otherwise clean. Close to downtown, within walking distance but still far enough away that there's not really any traffic.
