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

What a fantastic spot! This is not a hostel, it´s far more of a home. It´s just far out enough from the city to feel removed and at peace. There is a supermarket that is well-stoked just down the road where you can get and top-up buscards (which Alaska can, at times, supply). Beautiful garden and a few super-friendly (non-flea)...

I stayed for over 10 days at Alaska hostel after only have intially planed to stay for four. Its without a doubt my favorite hostel in Patagonia. If your after a quiet stay away from the city, this hostel really is a must. Javi and Naty the owners are what make this place so special. It is only a small... More

Our stay in Alaksa Hostel was great! It is a small hostel and our double room was actually quite small, but all the other things in Alaska hostel are great. When we arrived Nati gave us loads of information about Bariloche. She was very helpfull and helped us with all the things we wanted to do in Bariloche. She explained... More

I stayed in Alaska Hostel for four nights and it was amazing! The little Hostel outside the city of Bariloche is a good place to stay some days. Its a clean, good equipt hostel and wonderful to get in touch with other travellers! Also Naty and Javi are very friendly and attentive and are helping with all you need!

We stayed in this hostel over new year for 3 nights and it was busy every night. It's a very sociable hostel with everyone up the kitchen or sitting area or in the garden. But it's Naty and Javi, the owners, that absolutely make this place, and why I would highly recommend it. They both couldn't have done more to... More

We have been traveling for the last year; everywhere from Europe to Asia to South America and this is our favorite hostel so far. It takes about 20 minutes from the bus station and 15 minutes from the center of town to get there, but the location is still great. Bus access is very easy and once you have a... More

I stayed here as everyone I ran into so far on my travels that had been to Bariloche had stayed here and raved about it. I was not disappointed. Alaska is a home away from home, the best hostel I´ve stayed in so far in 2 months of travelling in South America. Naty, Javi and Luca are wonderful hosts. On... More

Lovely place, best hostel I stayed in on this trip. Javi was very helpful, gives you a proper 'induction' session at arrival and explains everything you would usually have to ask - like trasport, hiking options, attractions etc. I find it a great value service. Atmosphere is very chilled, it's nice to come back after a long hike. Thank you!
