Great location, staff nice and helpful, their agency for booking trips is great, rooms for 4 persons-dorm nice size and clean. One negative point: in the kitchen you could not find all cooking materials. Anyway, I really recommend it!!!

The hostel has a lot of space for backpackers. Most of the rooms are 4-person dormitorios with own bathroom and a sink. The kitchen is not that well supplied with cooking materials, thats a pitty, and you have to rent your cuttlery at the reception desk. Besides that, the service of the hostel is great! The main thing is that... More

Really lovely building from outside in a great location. Staff are really helpful and speak really good English. Useful information board with tours and prices clear to see. Had run out of pesos so had to pay in US dollars and got absolutely ripped off.. Worst exchange rate I have had in whole of Argentina. I guess I should have... More

Very clean rooms. No computer, not really a big deal, although there is a sign above where the computer would have been that says "Rate us on...". The majority of the staff was very welcoming, except the girl who appeared to be the manager...she seemed like she would rather be doing something else with her life. Maybe she just had... More

We are couple traveling around Argentina and stayed at The Backpackers for two days. Staff was extremely friendly and made us feeling like we were staying with our family! During our trip we were at 4 stars hotels and beautiful accommodation but none of the places had the level of hospitality like Hostel del Glaciar. I would advice everybody to... More

A hostel to recommend, very helpful staff at the reception. They organized a lot for us, worked out perfectly. Clean and fair prize. Only 5 minutes to the next supermarket. Breakfast included, Toast, Marmelade and Coffee + Tea. Not much but better than other hostels.

I stayed here for a few nights in April and it was a pleasant hostel. The dorms were only 4 people per dorm with a shared bathroom. They were all very warm rooms, which is good since you're so far south. The staff was all helpful with anything you needed and the hostel was only a short walk from the... More

I stayed in a dorm and apart from unfriendly staff which kept me waiting half an hour before I could check in it's bad value for the money. It's expensive and the beds are almost falling apart, furthermore it's noisy. The breakfast which is included is really poor. If you're just looking for a affordable place to sleep there are... More

We stayed in a 4 person dorm room. They are clean, relatively big and with lockers inside the room. The kitchen area is big enough for large groups to cook and eat together. The breakfast is a bit disappointing, so was the WiFi connection.
