We are travelling for a long time and this was the best hostel so far. The staff was very warm and helpful and made us fell like a real home. The hostel is very clean, and the breakfast includes a tasty, addictive warm bread.... Everything was perfect, and the atmosphere was amazing! it is a great place for meeting new... More

Very helpful staff! This family of 9 will help you a lot to book stuff and plan what you want to do in Patagonia. Good vibes and friendly atmosphere. Do book at least 10 days ahead if you want private bedrooms. Clean bedrooms, breakfast is offered as well.

The rooms and bathrooms are clean though not particularly distinctive. The common space is extremely nice, friendly but big enough to have your own space. The hostel is a bit up from the town center (10-15 min walk) but this offers a great view on lake Argentino. The cherry on the cake here is the family (9 siblings!) of owners,... More

I stayed at this hostel for 3 days. Arrived on Friday and they organised an asado! really friendly atmosphere. The staff helped me with all sort of things that I had to organised for my trip, they are really friendly, I think this is the place I felt most at home. They have two big couches facing a window where... More

Just a few blocks from town with a great view and nice facility. The entire staff was super friendly and helpful. What a hostel stay should be like. The lockers are a little small in the rooms, but no real issue for me.

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. The day... More

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....
