We stayed here while on a tour of the parks. Our first stay was two nights. Our room was in need of fresh paint. There was a huge clump of hair on the shower wall and while staff was advised we had to clean it ourselves. When our group returned for an additional night we were assigned the same room... More

It's not close from the bus terminal, they constantly overbooked the place and had customers go to another location that's much farther from the central part of town, the staff weren't very helpful, and the place felt over-crowded. Wifi was very slow. Overall, I think this place is overrated.

Great location just 5 minutes from main drag. Everything well maintained and clean. A mix of hostel and hotel rooms with private bathrooms (with access to hostel facilities like kitchen if you wanted). I stayed in a hotel room: simple but comfortable. Good beds and super shower. Breakfast (included in the room rate) was OK. Staff were very helpful and... More

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
