This is one of the nicest hostels I've stayed at in South America. It resembles a ski chalet and is really quaint, clean, spacious and always warm. We were warmly welcomed by Natalie who went to great lengths to explain everything that we could do around Bariloche. You really felt at home here. We stayed in a double room which... More

On a quiet street along the main bus route which skirts the lake, Hostel Alaska is comfortable, clean, has a great kitchen and is run by an extremely friendly couple. We stayed here twice on our trip and would go again. If you're looking to party in Bariloche stay in town, but if you're up for sitting around with some... More

We stayed at Alaska Hostel for just over a week. From the moment we arrived the owners and staff were very welcoming, providing us with useful information regarding activities in Bariloche and even advice on other areas of Argentina. During our stay, there was a bus strike throughout town which made getting around very difficult without a car. The owners... More

Basic but warm rooms with a shared bathroom for the private rooms but it has a really nice atmosphere with a big kitchen to use and a comfortable common area. It's a bit far from the town centre but its easy to take a bus. The owners are really helpful and nice.

We spend several nights in the 6-bed dorm during the beginning of low season (100Peso p.P. incl. breakfast and towels). When full, it might be a bit small. There are lockers and individual reading lights for everybody. The beds were comfortable and rooms and bathrooms very clean. Hot showers were excellent. The whole hostel was very well heated. As there... More

The hostel was seriosuly the best hostel we stayed in after 5 weeks travelling around Argentina. We met some great people in the very hospitable, welcoming open area, but were most impressed by the owners of the hostel. They gave great information about sites and activities and helped out wherever possible. The had great enthusiasm and made sure everyone was... More

Originally booked for only 2 nights and ended up staying for 5. We found the staff so helpful and knowledgeable and with so much to do we couldn't fit it all in in 2 days. The kitchen is the biggest and best we've found so far in Argentina, they even had a wok and a juicer! The homemade bread for... More

I stayed at Alaska Hostel for a week last year over the summer with friends during our trip through Patagonia. Out of all the hostels we stayed at during our 3 week trip, this place was BY FAR the best. We had initially only planned to stay 3 days, however it was such a great fit for us (we rented... More

Out of the 9 or 10 hostels I have stayed in, in Argentina, this has the right balance of homelyness, quality of service and affordability. It's a perfect place; you don't need to be in the centre of Bariloche to experience the beautiful countryside around (infact this hostel is closer to what you want to see) and it's half the... More
