Stayed here twice, each time was great. Great view over the city and lake, atmosphere is great. Wait till Marcelo selects the music, perfect vibe. Possible to book all the attractions from the hostel and the staff is very helpful. We needed them to hold for our luggage for a while and they had no problem. Marcelo was great and... More

Lovely hostel and staff. Perfect location, 10 mins from bus station and Main Street and 5 mins from the largest supermarket in town. Good kitchen and comfortable beds. Staff happy to organise trips to the Glacier and advise on bus trips to El Chalten.

Unfortunately we were visiting El Calafate during a music festival so even though we booked several weeks in advance we could only find beds in our price range in a dorm - the first and only dorm booking of our 10 month trip. It was expensive for a dorm and more expensive together than nearly every one of our private... More

This is a nice hostel which is a little out of town but therefore have lovely views. The walk into town is not long and there is a huge supermarket just down the road so you don't have to go into town to get groceries. The hostel it nice with an open plan common area and very clean kitchen and... More

This is a really nice hostel to stay in Calafate. Even if it takes a hike uphill, it is totally worth it. Good atmosphere, nice and helpful staff, all that you need in the kitchen, barbecues... The price is also convenient. Would recommend.

attention was bad . The person who owns the place, was very aggressive and unfriendly . I've seen other reviews that agree with me. Not a recommended place . Far from the city center and dusty street .

Appreciated this hostel was only a 10 minute walk from the bus terminal, away from town centre and close to a big Unimarc. It also has a deck and yard in addition to some nice common space.
