We stayed in the 6 bed dorm, and because it was high season it was expensive. The attitude of the Pudu staff is you put up with the bad service and quality they give. The dorm wasn't clean, the beds were old, the sheets stank (not clean). The bathroom was disgusting, dirty, smelly, no window. The lock on the door... More

This hostel is well located in downtown and has an spectacular view of the lake. Tomás B, the guy at the reception is very nice and helpful. It has good showers and breakfast is sweet with crunchy toast and jams. If I go back to Bariloche I would definitely stay at this hostel again.

Although young staff did their best to be helpful the place was dirty and smelt very musty. Doors had locks that weren't working properly. The place desperately needs work. Breakfast was poor and rates were expensive compared to much better places in town. The only thing going for it was good views of the lake.

Whilst this hostel is in a good location, and has great views of the lake, it really can't be recommended. The carpet in our 4-bed dorm was damp, the whole place smelt musty, the bathroom obviously hadn't been cleaned properly in ages. Pillows were awful too. Young staff were keen to please, but the state of the building lets the... More

Disappointment at Pudu Hostel One night during our stay, the guy (Thomas) who worked 6 days a week at Pudu Hostel had a little too much to drink and tried to kiss my girlfriend. Hardly, professional or respectful, I'm sure you'll agree. On checking out, I told Thomas that I wasn't happy with what had happened the night before. He... More

Cleanliness - as a traveller I don't expect the world. We stayed in an 8 bed dorm with its own bathroom. The room was dirty, the bathroom was disgusting. The lock on the bathroom door was terrible & i was locked in for 20 mins, when the guy on duty decided the solution was to kick the door in, before... More

Stayed in a private double room that was clean and had great views of the lake. The kitchen, bar area, and garden were great places to chill and the staff were very friendly. The breakfast was unfortunately poor. Wifi is only strong on the floor where reception is. It's not quite as good overall as Tango Inn a few more... More

We loved our stay here, rooms are great. Comfortable with amazing views. Due to the bus strikes we stayed a few days extra and Tommy was very helpful and called the bus companies to find out info and he reduced the price of our room over the few days. Good location, very glad we stayed here!

My boyfriend and I stayed at Pudu for three nights just before Easter. For the first night we arrived late in the evening and stayed in a grim twin room, but for the following two nights we moved to a very nice double with gorgeous views of the lake. Room was clean and shower powerful and warm. We found Thomas... More
