After having arrived from Ushuaia and what I considered a nice hostel, I had a "moment" when I saw my room. There was no ladder to climb to the top bed - well, I wanted to leave there and then (have no idea what got into me). Ignacio was wonderful. He changed me so that I could use the bottom... More

The staff at the hostel is outstanding. They are friendly, always with a smile, and they are very helpful and knowledgeable. The place in itself isn't super central, but it's only a 10 minute walk to town. The private rooms are nice and come with a kitchen. The wifi is great, and the place has a good overall atmosphere.

Great place to stay, supermarket right next door, 10 minutes walk to the center, staff was very helpful with organizing trips to glaciers, horseback riding and transfers, the assado was very delicious and cheap and the view from the hostel is just breathtaking! Rooms were a bit small but very clean!

Nearly on top of El Calafate with an amazing view. Excellent and very friendly, helpful stuff. Bedrooms are clean and the bathroom too. The kitchen could be a bit re- equiped. The breakfast was good and sufficient. The price in a 4 Dorms a 110arg$ fair.

My hostel in El Chalten (a lovely place with the most limited internet access and phone lines that don't really work) helped me book a room at I Keu Ken just before I boarded the bus to El Calafate. They told me that they knew the owners and that it would be a great place to stay at. 4 hours... More

Great place to stay, a pity they are in El Calafate, where there's not much to do apart from visit the Perito Moreno. The place is kept very well, clean, with very good breakfast and nice music.Staff is extremely friendly and helpful,  with great choice of activities to do. As said, unfortunately most of them are not in El Calafate(a... More

The strength of this place is the helpfulness and guidance of the staff. They´re great. Other than that, a stock standard hostel with a great view. If you want something smack bang in the centre, this is not it. It´s a little walk up the hill, but the views are pretty bloody amazing as all the reviews say. It has... More

We only stayed here for one night, but really liked it. Our double room turned out to be more like a small apartment; it had it's own kitchen with a small dining table, and a private bathroom. The staff were really welcoming and friendly, there was decent Wifi in the main building and a couple of PCs to use if... More

Although a little out of town, being on a hill means really great views. The staff there were lovely, especially Martin and the girl who looks like Nelly Furtado. Amazing BBQ, although few and far between this time of year. Breakfast is really dull - bread, crackers and bad coffee. Good tea selection though! And it makes up for the... More

Brilliant hostel. What really made it was the staff, who were super helpful, especially Ignacio. For example within an hour of booking through hostelworld got a nice welcome email from them asking if we needed more information etc & prompt replies to our emails. Very homey and warm feeling and atmosphere, the common area was rather nice. 4 bed dorm... More
