This hostel in Bariloche is very cool. Stayed here 5 nights and loved it. It's quite small but it is has great staff who are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are all named after famous rock bands/artists. I was in the Jimi Hendrix room complete with purple drapes, duvet and walls. Very cool. Giant lockers for all your bags... More

Achalay - we came to Achalay Hostel in Bariloche, a little disenchanted from the busy streets of Buenos Aires and tired of the busy life back home in Europe. We sought nature, mountains, lakes, open skies - space to let the mind wonder - and a place to meet people, to hear people's stories, their true stories...in Achalay we found... More

Won't take too much rating the generals because they have it all covered and there might be many reviews speaking about them (location, cleaning, utilities all.... good, very good!) I would like to say what is different about this hostel and why I can consider it to be one of my top experiences regarding hostels. It is all about the... More

The hostel is well priced, with comfy beds and a great communal area. The best thing about it for me were the staff. The staff themselves are mainly people travelling and are really helpful with things to do in Bariloche but also in the rest of Argentina. Me and my mates had a great time hanging out with the staff... More

This hostel was a great place to stay. The boys who work here are awesome, full of knowledge and always willing to help. Great location, safe, comfortable. Breakfast very good, it's served until late which is great!!! They also put on dinner every few nights which is tasty and cheap. Could do with a couple of new shower heads though.... More

A very warm, cosy and hospitable hostel. All staff were very lovely and helpful (including Pablo, Tommi, Frank, Sebastian and Juan). Beds were comfortable and everything was kept clean. Breakfast was great, fresh bread every morning, with the best Dulce de Leche. This hostel has a great atmosphere and staff really do go out of their way to ensure you... More

If you have any doubt where to stay at Bariloche - this is the place, Best Atmosphere, great stuff... And my recommendation is to ask for the barbecue. I've been travelling a lot and this one is one of my favorite!

I stayed at the hostel for 4 nights and found that the place certainly lived up to its reputation. To begin with, it's well located right near the centre of town to be convenient but also benefits from a quiet location away from the bars. The rooms are reasonably sized and the mattresses are extremely comfortable by hostel standards. The... More
