This is the worst hostel in the world , creaking floor and beds so you can not sleep if someone comes late. We had no water for 3 days to shower and to use the toilet. Shouted at us without end , even when we did nothing wrong. Bad attitude and I would not recommend it to anyone.

I planned to stay one week in Bariloche but ended up staying one month, partly because this hostel was so great! The atmosphere in Pudu is so friendly and relaxed that I met many other solo and group travellers from all over the world. The TV room was perfect for lazy days and both Thomas' who worked there were lovely... More

This hostel is clean with a chilled vibe and great staff. I loved the communal area, I found it easy to meet other travelers. The hostel is in a great location with a short walk to center and bars. This has been one of my favourite hostels throughout a year of travelling in latin america.

The dorm has a great view of the lake and mountains. The staff ( the two Thomas') were friendly and helpful. Nice bar downstairs to chill out in and to use the computer. Also has decent sized kitchen although I ate out while in bariloche.

great view from the bedroom window, horrible service. The guy who worked there yelled at us in 2 different situations and the water in the shower was freezing! After one night we moved to the hostel across the street.

Great hostel, in a great location. Stayed in a private room ,which had a wonderful view to the lake and private bathroom (hot water and clean). The hotel staff is really nice, and will help you with anything you want (tips for what to do, what bus to catch, etc). It has a nice terrace where you can just chill,... More

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
