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

For context, my wife and I are 33 and traveling together. We've been in SA for six weeks through Bolivia, Peru, Argentina, and Chile. We've stayed in a lot of different hostels, from really cheap to pretty nice. Our experience with this hostel was mixed. It was recommended by the proprietor of our last hostel in Puerto Natales.

Really comfortable and well run hostel. Our room was more like an apartment with a comfy bed and duvet, good hot shower and a small kitchen. The common area is nice, with board games and a good sized kitchen. The best bit though, is the asado. We turned up quite late on a Monday night and paid 120 pesos for... More

This is a cozy hostel and a good place to keep warm. A good intro is given when you arrive which greatly helps in your time at El Calafate but, Location is not good, a small hike to get back to the hostel from anywhere, not in the centre of town - near large supermarket however which is a plus....

We loved staying here, it was amazing. We were in a private cabin at the back of the hostel, which had a good sized bedroom, bathroom and large kitchn/dining area. Clean, warm and good value too. The outside porch area was lovely for sitting on and having a beer in the evening, and overlooked the large fire pit/BBQ area. The... More

Its a great hostel with young but respectfull ambience, its super cosy, and their bbq asados are world famous! The private cabins are great, super big and comfortable. A highlight of the hostel is their staff: Ignacio and the... More

I stayed here for four nights, leaving the 1st March 2014. The bedrooms were lovely, the kitchen area was perfect but busy. The breakfast was crackers,bread and coffee and tea. However the atmosphere here was exceptional! The beautiful Ignacio explained all the tour options for us, booked us our hostel in El Chaten, and booked our bus ticket to El... More

Really cosy common areas. The 4 bed dorm was a decent size with nice big lockers & comfy beds. Everything was really clean & nice. The kitchen could do with being bigger & having an extra cooker in there but the shared food shelf was a really nice touch. The bread at breakfast was really good.

Only one negative point : it's a little bit far from the mainstreet (like 15 minutes) but except that, everything is positive ! Friendly atmosphere with a nice view on the Lago Argentino, the staff member is nice and helpful. They proposed me a horse riding (which was not mentionned in my guide), I did it and it was one...
