    We stayed here for two separate stays. Staff is wonderful, breakfast great, and it is super clean. Hot showers and given it had one shared bathroom (one Male, one female) it was never crowded. It isn't downtown but we thought the convenience of an easy walk to the bus station better. And it's fairly quiet. I would stay here again.

    Folk hostel is a gem. It’s clean, bright, large, airy and accessible. The breakfast was delicious and had a big variety. The beds are comfortable and there is excellent organizational spaces in each room. If I had stayed longer, I would have used the kitchen and been so happy. The showers and bathroom were so so clean. The aesthetic is fun, and all the fellow travelers were responsible. It’s maybe ten minutes walk from downtown calafate and five min or less to the bus station.

    This hostel was incredibly clean and well equipped. The beds are comfy, there are probably a dozen hot showers, there’s a nice, big, fully equipped kitchen, there are games to play, and excellent WiFi. The staff are incredibly helpful, knowledgeable, and dedicated. This place is 100% worth staying at!

    Cute, clean, functional hostel with a good free breakfast and well stocked kitchen. We stayed in an eight person and a four person dorm and both were spacious and had good pull out storage for bags under the bed. The hostel is located outside the main town but super close to the bus station which is great for getting transfers to the Perito Moreno Glacier and other destinations in Patagonia. Would recommend to anyone visiting El Calafate!

    Good: comfortable beds, clean, modern, and great breakfast. Staff was very helpful with some special transportation requests. The location is very easy to walk from the bus station and to downtown. Opportunities to improve: security, the lockers under the bed didn't inspire much confidence, neither did the open side door away from the front desk.

    Clean, spacious, and comfortable bed. Near bus terminal and Main Street. But the door opening is abit noisy and sound proof to corridor can be improved. I love the living space area and the staffs are extremely helpful and welcoming. Highly recommended.

    Great hostel, friendly staff - healthy breakfast. Only (personal) downsides: two bathrooms/showers for all guests (one each men & women), no air circulation in the rooms (keep window open at night). But would book again.

    Would love to give this 10/10 but security really poor.... lockers consist of a drawer under the bunks that is landlocked to bed frame. Simply lifting the mattress reveals everyone's valuables. I did point it out yo girl on reception. Also a pocket would be useful in each bed unit as nowhere to put phones etc whilst sleeping Mattresses quite narrow and no bar on tip bunk to prevent falling out Otherwise hostel was perfect
