I stayed at Achalay Hostel for four nights and enjoyed the hostel immensely. Its breakfast rates a 7 on my 10-point scale for healthy, nutritious breakfasts with its fresh red apples, daily homemade bread and percolated coffee and great selection of tea (adding some more varieties of fruit -- bananas, mandarin oranges, etc. -- would make the breakfast even more...

Achalay hostel is very nice. The location is good, pretty much in the center of Bariloche. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The dorms and bathrooms are clean. The atmosphere is great. Probably one of my favourite hostels I´ve ever been in, and definetely a great place to stay in Bariloche.

We stayed 3 nights in this lovely hostel run by the friendly Pablo. You'll find whatever you need from a hostel plus a very nice atmosphere. All the staff will go out of the way to assist you in activities and tours in the area. We were lucky enough to be at the hostel during a tasty BBQ night! Highly... More

This hostel is in an old house, a few minutes walk from the main square, so a great spot. The vibe is relaxed and chilled. I had a very small room, and the bathrooms were ok. Pablo, the owner was a great help, and Christian brought the energy. Fine for a few days.

We had a wonderful 3 nights stay. Clean room and bathroom. Good location. Walking distance to town center. Best of all is the homemade bread and spreads for breakfast. Thanks to Pablo for taking us touring San Martin and the seven lakes. We truly enjoyed the trip. It has very friendly atmosphere. Highly recommend this place.

We loved it here at Achalay! Great and fun staff, really welcoming vibe and very well equiped hostel. Breakfast is yummy! We booked the double room with ensuite and it was one of the best rooms we have had during our 6 month trip! Sad to leave- thanks for the great hospitality!

I highly recommend the hostel. Mostly comprised of fellow travellers on a brief break from moving around, the staff are awesome and really helpful. The amenities are clean and the owners are super welcoming. If you need to stay ion one place and save some cash you might be able to get a job there too. Just a walk away... More

We had change our itinerary and ended one day early in Bariloche, an decided to stay in Achalay. First, private room was so tiny but we could leave with that no problem but they gave us sheets that were so small for our bed. Location is really good just four blocks from the center. We had a bus to puerto... More

This hostel is incredible! The atmosphere is fun and welcoming. Beds are very comfortable and rooms are all really cool. Kitchen is fantastic. Breakfast is delicious - who doesn't love freshly baked bread and homemade jam in the morning, yum! The people at this hostel made my experience very special. Thanks for all the good times, delicious meals and sharing... More
