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.

The rooms in this hostel are as good as any 3 star hotel but a fraction of the price. The breakfast was good and the staff, especially Noa (?) fantastic. She was so helpful in sorting out a trip for us. We loved our stay here and can highly recommend it

Really good with nice and helpful staff.The dorms room includes a shower and toilet which is really nice. Breakfast is a bit small even when you upgrade, should be better for their price. Would go there again for sure.

I was ready for a break from dorms and really enjoyed my double room with private bath and shower! Room was spotless, staff was good, breakfast was ok. Good location and kitchen facilities. Recommended!

This is a rather impersonal place, more like a youth hostel than like a hotel. Small breakfast buffet. The hostel is easy to find only walking distance to the downtown. The hostel offers a range of services for visiting and enjoying the stay.

They offer good alternative excursions and as a backpacker you'll find exactly what you look for: location, friendly and helpful reception, breakfast and a well furnished self-catering kitchen. Surprisingly they also have accommodations with private bathroom facility for those who wish to 'upgrade' themselves or need more privacy. The hostel is a nice wooden house at steps away from the...

It's hard to believe from the outside that this place is a hostel. It looks like a small European mansion. The lady at the front desk was very helpful and recommended a private taxi to see the Maldeno glaciers instead of a bus since we were pressed for time. The trip was amazing. Not only were the glaciers just spectacular... More

We were in a dorm room with an adequate bath, and adequate bunks. The breakfast was adequate as well. The staff was well informed and when they had to leave the front desk, they locked the front door!. They need to upgrade the computers. WIFI was adequate, but the monitors were from 2000. It's a short walk to town, but... More
