Great place to stay if you can't afford to be on the mountain. Danny, one of the hostel's staff, drives a van up to Catedral every day around 9 AM for 100 pesos round trip per person. Breakfast is provided every morning. Nice clean beds, hot shower, and heated rooms. Welcoming place wish we could have stayed longer.

Stayed here for four nights and had the warmest welcome to a hostel ever. The staff are amazing. We were given a map, explained the main points and helped to get snow gear together when we needed it. They even offer rides up to Catedral of you want. You can also join in on meals there at night. Breakfast is... More

I stayed here for 3 nights in March. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and the showers were always hot! The kitchen is really well equipped and clean and it feels really homely. The owners are really helpful, friendly and approachable - they were more than happy to give directions and advice. I really enjoyed my stay here and... More

This is hands down the place to stay in Bariloche. Ignore the previous review below about plumbing and room conditions, the showers are always hot, the bathrooms are clean, the bedrooms are immaculate. And I've been here 6 times since October. Free tea and coffee for 24hours is provided, and they bake the bread for breakfast in house. As an... More

The rooms are in a very bad condition, especially the ones downstaires. The bathrooms are even worse. They put a cleaning cloth infront of the shower instead of a bathmap. Never hand in your laundry. The cleaning lady has to wash it all by hand cold and hangs it in the storageroom to dry. When we got them back they... More

Nathy, Javi and all the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. Only 10mins bus ride to Bariloche centre. If you really want to experience Bariloche area stay out of the center and enjoy the gorgeos views of the mountains and lake. Enjoy it!

The Alaska Hostel became our family's beloved home away from home for three weeks in October and November of 2014. The Hostel's staff, owners and fellow guests became our family - it was hard to leave. The hostel itself is fantastic, with a great layout and fantastic location. We loved being equidistant from the city centre and the attractions to... More
