The hostel is very well located and has a great view. Also the owners are very helpful and friendly. Perfect place for relaxing after spending your day snowboarding. Just one point to improve is the heating system in some rooms, the overall stay was amazing.

Spent two nights in this really good hostel - clean, friendly, quiet but a good atmosphere. The views are stunning from this top floor apartment converted into a real experience of a hostel. I particularly liked the communal areas with a big well equipped kitchen, a large dining area and a separate chill out area overlooking the lake.

We stayed in a double room with shared bathroom at Penthouse 1004 for 8 nights, having been recommended to the hostel by friends and fellow travellers.

The kitchen is the standout of this hostel. Its huge and is maintained very very well, so we found it really enjoyable to be cooking for ourselves. The communal area is a great way to meet people. Breakfast had fresh bread (home made I believe), fresh jam and cereal.

super clean, 2 kitchens that accomodates everyone, delicious homemade bread for breakfast, most amazing view of the city and lake. The location is ideal- close to the water, right in the center of town and close to the bus stop for local trip for hiking. Staff was helpful in daytrip planning.

The sixties-style tower block housing this hostel might be more Bracknell than Bariloche but persevere to the tenth floor inside and you will be rewarded. At the end of a slightly uninspiring hallway room 1004 opens into a Tardis of large, welcoming rooms and possibly the most breathtaking view the whole town has to offer. The staff are very helpful...

Situated in large building in the middle of town, it is much nicer inside than what the building looks like. Its location on the top floor allows for spectacular views on the lake.

An eclectic selection of music helps to create the right atmosphere for each moment!The Penthouse 1004 was born due to the human quality and warmth of all its visitors.
