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

We loved Achalay hostel because it is so chilled out and friendly. It doesn't have too many rooms which is nice and means you get a good night's rest while enjoying a great atmosphere. The breakfast is also one of the best we've seen!

We stayed at Achalay for one night, we didn't have a reservation and they gave us a double room with bunk beds, the room was clean, but very small. The double with matrimonial bed might be bigger, but we didn't see it. The staff is friendly and quite helpful, good breakfast with homemade bread and jam, coffee, milk, tea. Good... More
