The house offers you different places: an open terrace with a beautiful garden where you can relax and make friends, a full equipped kitchen, a spacious living room with TV and DVD player, and a small area where you can share a drink with other guests.

Overview

Small in size but big on atmosphere, Hostel Achalay is in a rustic wooden house in downtown Bariloche. But there's nothing rustic about our facilities, with modern updates like free Wi-Fi. We have common areas to hang out in, from our open terrace to our roomy lounge, and there's also a kitchen where you can chat with other travellers while you cook. You'll wake up to a leisurely free breakfast of chocolate, fruit, cereal and more. Want to start the day Argentinian style? We've got dulce de leche – a sweet spread that's super popular here – and we make our raspberry and rosehip jam from scratch!

Location

You'll find us four blocks from the famous blue waters of Nahuel Huapi Lake. If you're coming into San Carlos de Bariloche train station, jump on bus No. 10, 20 or 21. Leave at the Centro Cívico stop by the town hall and you'll be a 5-minute walk away from us. We're also only a 25-minute taxi ride from San Carlos de Bariloche Airport. Nahuel Huapi National Park is an hour's drive away, and full of opportunities for hiking and exploring the rugged Patagonian landscape.

Rooms and Dorms

Our rooms each have their own music theme. Dorms come with shared bathrooms, and some of our private rooms have en-suites. Pure cotton bed linen is included, and we've got extra comfy mattresses (perfect when you get in from a hike). You'll have a locker big enough for a backpack, and you can borrow a towel from reception for that much-needed hot shower.

Extras and activities

Bariloche is the gateway to some of Argentina's best hiking, and you can book trips from reception or ask about planning your own adventure. Our staff are travellers like you, who know the area well and speak English and Spanish. Our lounge has a TV and a guitar to strum on, so you can chill out and share your stories when you return.

    Such a lovely chilled and relaxed atmosphere with super friendly staff from multiple countries. The beds were so comfortable and bedrooms nice and warm. Just be aware that it is up a hill but it's not too steep

    Such a great hostel, we had an amazing three days here. Staff very friendly and helpful, really cosy atmosphere - easy to meet people in the common area and best of the all the BEDS WERE INCREDIBLE. Never slept in such a comfy bed in a hostel before. Couldn't imagine a better place to come back to after a day exploring in the mountains. 20/10

    Great hostel, awesome location and atmosphere and is a really great way to meet people. Phenomenal breakfasts!! The owner was only around on the first and last day of our stay and things seemed to run smoother with him there. Most of the staff weren’t too interested in what was happening or able to help (some were really great). It did also feel like there were more people working there than staying there. The one employee cut his hair in the bathroom and didn’t care to clean it at all.

    Highly recommend this hostel! The staff was super friendly and willing to help with whatever you needed. Location was very central and the kitchen was easy to use. However, I have a few complaints. The water pressure was some of the worst I’ve ever had and there was either never any soap in the dispensers or they didn’t work. I would still recommend and/or stay there again regardless.

    Apart from a bit of a mix up with our room, we had a great stay at this hostel. Loved that they offer scrambled eggs for breakfast - a welcome change! Hostel is in a good location and the staff were really friendly and helpful.

    Hostel Achalay has a fantastic location-- close to transit, great restaurants, laundry, grocery stores, banks etc. The staff were always very helpful and accommodating. However, this place is run down-- the washrooms are not the cleanest and the was a drainage issue in the shower. Breakfast is basic-- fresh bread was made, jam, and eggs.

    Place is pretty rundown. Rooms are old while the bathrooms badly need repair. There are also very few bathrooms that there is a long wait for them in the morning. They don't refill the bathrooms with hand soap promptly. It's also vere loud in the hostel. Past midnight, some guests are playing table games with the staff and making too much noise. Same thing in the morning. I'm assuming it's the owner's family who came over and people were talking loudly next to the rooms.
