a few blocks off main street, so it was quiet, which was nice. lots of guests here, so it is easy to make friends to share taxis to the glacier or airport. the staff is very friendly and helpful. great breakfast in the morning. franco was very sweet to remind you to always drink water (: I can back here again after Chalten because I enjoyed the atmosphere so much. kitchen could have a little more items, but still managable

The place doesn't match the photos at all especially the rooms, the bathrooms were gender mixed, including showers and they didn't allowed much privacy as expected from this kind of arrangement.

Sadly one of them hostels you’re relieved to be staying only one night. We stayed in the 8 bed dorm, no lock on the room door, no lockers in the room, no lock on the toilets, no ladders to top bunks, the room smelt pretty bad and the showers weren’t that clean. It is set back a few streets from the main road but a long way from the bus terminal.
