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. The rooms are spacious with lockers but thd bunk beds are or at least do not feel stable. We had to bring a... More

Staff were pleasant and the kitchen is nice. Seating area has a nice view. Bunks were very very rickety and some toilets didn't have seats. Rooms on the lower level get noise from the common area, which continued quite late both nights we stayed.

The hostel is far from the city. To go to the hostel you have to climb a very steep hill. We stayed in the cabanias and we had some problems: We had to take a shower in the dorms because the hot water was over after 1 minute. The toilet was liking all the time. The cabanias have a kitchen... More

We only spent there one night to travel further to Chile. It is a nice Hostel, a bit up the hill with a great view tough. The room was spacious and clean, but we needed the heater to be on, because it was quite cold. The breakfast was good with nice bread and you could have as much as you... More

The hostel is very clean, and the breakfast includes a tasty, addictive warm bread.... Everything was perfect, and the atmosphere was amazing! it is a great place for meeting new... More

Very helpful staff! This family of 9 will help you a lot to book stuff and plan what you want to do in Patagonia. Good vibes and friendly atmosphere. Do book at least 10 days ahead if you want private bedrooms. Clean bedrooms, breakfast is offered as well.

The rooms and bathrooms are clean though not particularly distinctive. The common space is extremely nice, friendly but big enough to have your own space. The hostel is a bit up from the town center (10-15 min walk) but this offers a great view on lake Argentino. The cherry on the cake here is the family (9 siblings!) of owners,... More

The staff helped me with all sort of things that I had to organised for my trip, they are really friendly, I think this is the place I felt most at home. They have two big couches facing a window where... More

Just a few blocks from town with a great view and nice facility. The entire staff was super friendly and helpful. What a hostel stay should be like. The lockers are a little small in the rooms, but no real issue for me.

We had a fab time here. Had a great mini-apartment styled room at the back of the hostel with a wee balcony looking out over the lake and town. A bit of a hike from the town but just a stretch of the legs! Right around the corner from the supermarket. Breakfast okay, but amazing and very good value for... More
