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

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.

The guys who run this hostel are the most friendly people you could possibly meet. They were more than happy sit and chat for hours or even go out on the town and show you the local spots to eat or party. Its super comfy and cozy and you just wont want to leave. They cook a great BBQ /... More

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.

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
