Stayed at I Keu Ken Hostel in January 2011, it is an amazing hostel and well worth the walk up the hill. Rooms are large and all have lockers, bathrooms spotless and loads of hot water, fully equipped kitchen and great communal area. Best of all the vibe of the place is fabulous, a chilled boho vibe that really feels... More

I stayed at I Keu Ken for 5 days with my friend and we had New Year there. It was great - all you can drink bar, an asado and a bit of a live bongo music session all for ARG$100!! But it was not just a great New Year - the whole stay was lovely. Ok - there was... More

Firstly, The friendliest and most helpful staff I have come across in any Hostel. I stayed in both the double room and the dorms. The Double Room was very spacious but inaccurate description. It's a one bedroom apartment almost. Nice big bedroom, spacious bathroom and fully equipped Kitchen with fridge. So if you are a couple staying here for a... More

this was the best hostel i stayed at during my trip through argentina! the staff is very friendly, helpful (they book day-trips, bus tickets, everything for you) and give you a feeling-home atmosphere. we had an asado (barbeque) every other night. they don't have too many rooms which makes it familiar but also offers privacy if you need it. breakfast...

This is, without a doubt, the best hostel I have stayed at, and I've spent a fair share of nights in hostels. I stayed here this past May during my mid-semester break (I'm studying abroad in Buenos Aires). There is a wonderful lower level which is full of tables. I played many of their board games there (including an Argentine... More

Simply put, this is one of the best hostels I've ever stayed at. The rooms are small and basic, but that's what you expect at a hostel. The common areas are great, which facilitates meeting other guests. The staff are fantastic - attentive, laid back, and remarkably professional and helpful. The service rivals a bonafied hotel. They will book all... More

The only bad thing about this hostel is it's location - at the top of a hill, not near the center. It's quite a walk up to this place with a heavy bag, and a bit of a trek to visit the center. But otherwise, I loved this hostel! The staff are nice, free wifi, clean rooms and bathrooms, nice... More

I loved this hostel. Only a short walk from the bus station I Keu Ken is definitely one of the best in Calafate. Perched high upon the hill looking down on the town, not only does the hostel have a great view of the gorgeous turquoise lake, it's also clean with good sized bedrooms and bathrooms. While the two old... More

This was a great hostel. I really enjoyed staying in a 4 person dorm here for 3 nights in January and February 2010. We stayed in 2 rooms, both very clean. The owners were so nice and happy to help us arrange a last minute tour and airport transportation. The other guests were very friendly.The location is about a 10... More
