    Good hostel with nice lively atmosphere. Staff were good, friendly and helpful. Nice services such as cold beers and a nightly all you can eat BBQ. Don't let the location put you off, it's only 7 mins walk from town, 10 mins to centre. Plus it has an excellent neighbouring restaurant 2 doors up. All the tours pick up and drop off to the hostel too. Wifi in the common areas.

    If anything the Hostel is too warm.

    One of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. - Extremely welcoming, friendly and helpful staff - Great ambiance - Clean room, in-room bathroom & toilet - Nice breakfast - BBQ every night at cheap price - They offer lunch packs for when you do excursions

    Unfair handling when paying with credit card; you end up paying 15 - 20% more: - 5% surcharge (this is common in Argentina) - price charged in US dollars, with exuberant exchange rate (over 10% more than the real rate)

    Excellent hostel - staff were friendly, rooms were clean and well maintained and they do a mean asado!

    It's a little out of town, up a hill.....not great if you have a huge backpack and are walking from the bus terminal!

    A bit noisy in the rooms close to reception area. That's it!

    Nice atmosphere, helpful staff, clean rooms, nice under floor heating (a bit too hot)

    Small room, high price

    Best hostel I have ever stayed at! All of the staff are incredibly helpful and eager to meet your every need. They introduce themselves to every backpacker who passes through and ensure that everyone has an incredible time. Perfect for young people traveling in groups or alone! Great place to meet people.

    My room smelled horrible. I know I can't really blame it on the hostel but, rather, our fellow roommates who seemed to have been travelling for a long time... But it was unbearable. I tried to ask the hostel for help but they weren't able to do much.

    the best hostel i have ever been. even had the feeling of " coming back home" after short hiking trip to el chalten.

  • Family with children

    The professionalism, the travel agency role for booking excursions

    Small stuff: lack of pressure for showers, lack of forks and glasses in the collective kitchen

    Very friendly staff, very personal approach. This place has an excellent traveller's vibe, good place to meet people. Frequent asado'S. The location is fantastic with good views of Lago Argentina and mountains and a pleasant walk of 15 minutes to the centre.

    On arrival no space for me, despite confirmation through this site, but they arranged a bed in another hostel nearby and I could stay in the living area the whole day and use all facilities (exept for the bed). Was offered a free drink. Transportation (free) to the other hostel had been arranged. So in fact this is no minus!

  • Group of friends

    Lots of information about tours and excursions, great views.

    Small kitchen, the staff were unwilling to pay for our transfer to the bus station although the sign said they would they would only pay for one taxi and we needed two.

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    The staff was very friendly and very helpful. We booked all our bus trips/tour to the glacier with them. There was definitely a good vibe in this hostel.

    It is 10 min from the center.
