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

We were recommended to stay in I Keu Ken by other travelers we met in the way, and they were right! 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...

Very friendly staff + Breakfast (above standard level in this category of accommodation) served from 6.30AM so you manage the breakfast before any trip! + Many small clever ideas (one shelf in the kitchen reserved for things intended for sharing, excellent organization of dinners at a great price, etc.). Probably the best hostel in Patagonia I stayed in within my... More

Partner and I stayed 2 nights in a 4 bed dorm. Everything was clean and comfortable, kitchen and common areas good. Location is quite a walk from town but otherwise fine. We were a little surprised that the music was left on past midnight but it seemed like a pretty chilled hostal. The one thing that really detracted from it... More

Stayed with my mom and 2 siblings in a 4-person dorm. Beds are fine, and there are lockers, but it's nothing out of the ordinary. The toilets are also ok, as well as the shared kitchen. Where this place really stands out is with an amazing common room with heaps of interesting artefacts, lots of tables to sit and play... More
