Clean & comfortable bed, hot shower, nice people wi-fi and a bar downstairs. What else do you need? Noisy on a weekend night - but that is not necessarily a bad thing. Skews to a younger crowd, overall a very pleasant experience.

The service has been impecable, a view of the lake and a bar where you can always find a cold drink! They were always having events at the bar on Friday and we happened to stop in when there was a full moon party. Will see you guys again shortly, vamooo!

We were here for a few nights. The view from the dining room and the patio was gorgeous. Direct access to the beach. The kitchen is large and well equipped. The staff are very helpful and work very hard to keep the place clean (the actual cleanliness depends on the guests as well). Our room was clean but we felt... More

We stayed for a number of nights at Patanuk to get in some good hiking. We loved the view from the dining room (and our lake had a sliver of a lake view as well). The atmosphere was relaxing and the staff were friendly. Our room was big, clean, and had a comfortable bed. The kitchen was well-equipped for multiple... More

Amazing views and staff that speak English, French and Spanish. Clean rooms and attentive staff, I came to this hostel after a terrible stay at Punto Sur. Waking up to the sound of the waves rolling on the rocks was one of the best parts for me, very relaxing.

Although this hostel does not have curb appeal do not let that put you off. The facilities are good, full use of kitchen, excellent hot water and a roomy quad wuth private bathroom for our family of four. The view from the dining room is stunning. Sylvia arranged a half day kayaking which was excellent. The hostel is easy walking... More

We stayed here last year whilst travelling around the northern part of Argentina. It is set in a central location overlooking beautiful mountains and lakes. The staff were very friendly and accommodating and for what it is, it's ideal for a couple of nights when backpacking. Worth booking for the best views in town coupled with local knowledge.

Place has potential but is endemically dirty and in serious need of maintenance. Sheets, towels etc grubby and really not nice, to say the least. Some staff really don't belong in hospitality; some lovely. The view is super and the price is cheap. It's a hostel so obviously quite noisy at times.
