I came to El Calefate to see the glacier, like most tourists who come through the town, and this hostel was in a great location to explore both the town and the national park. Its run by a lovely family who are very welcoming and I'm led to believe that they put on events like Argentinian cooking courses for the... More

We enjoyed the comon area and the friendliness of the staff. Rooms simple but clean, location not right in the centre but quite easy to get around. THey have computers which you can use which was great and the kitchen can also be used by guests.

Great, comfortable place to stay with nice views over the lake. Run by a very friendly couple. Nice kitchen, good wifi in the common room (not so much in our private room), comfortable beds, clean bathrooms. Easy walking distance from town. Will definitely recommend this to friends!

Don't stay at this hostel, you are guaranteed a terrible experience. Every step of the way was made difficult by the woman who received us: from the check-in to changes in reservation everything was a battle. The reek coming from the common bathroom, no wifi in the room and terrible and meager breakfast were the cherry on top. I can't... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here because America del Sur down the street could not accommodate us for the evening. While I was taking a shower at 6:30 in the morning, my boyfriend started to yell, " The boiler's on fire, the boiler's on fire!!!". I was completely naked, so my boyfriend threw a sheet over me and we, along... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in a double private room with a bathroom. The room itself was nice, large, relatively clean and had a good hot shower. Ok location, about 7mins walk into town. The owner is really nice but she is the only one that speaks good English and isn't always around so difficult to get help. We originally... More

We are a young couple from Israel, we stayed at the Inn about a month ago. We found a very nice and welcoming staff who helped us a lot. The atmosphere was really good and we had a great time. I recommend everyone to stay there while in El Calafate.

We needed a one extra night stay in El Calafate. America Del Sur, the hostel where we were staying, referred us to Marco Polo Inn which is a short walk away. There were four of us traveling together. We asked for a quad dorm during booking and it was agreed that we would all stay in the same unit. We... More
