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 .

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
