We stayed there many nights in a twelve bed dorm. Room and bathroom were clean, they have a huge lobby, many places to hang around... Kitchen was not very nice, too small and not many stuff to cook with. The staff was very cool and helpfull!

I booked a room under their other name "MyHotel Calafate", and this was the one of the cheapest hotels I can find in Calafate that's closer to the city centre - it's within walking distance from the main shopping district. The room was decent and the service was OK. However, the food was disappointing - better to go elsewhere for... More

The price is very good, the rooms and all the hostel was very clean and nice. Breakfast is ok but it could be better. The staff in front desk is ok also could be better. You are not allowed to buy alcohol outside the hostel to drink in the nice lobby. El precio es muy bueno, los cuartos y el... More

Cool hostel with good amenities (wifi, kitchen - leave a deposit for utensils - and bathrooms) and fairly well priced for expensive El Calafate. They can book excursions too. Expensive bar, though. It's a big place with loads of beds so doesnt really have that personal feel.

The hostel has a great potential, but the rules are too tough. You just can't have fun in the hostel and enjoy the lobby to have a bite or a drink, unless it's purchased from them. I found my self eating dinner in an extremely hot kitchen, cause i wasn't allows to enjoy it in the huge loby. I'm dissapointed.

The kitchen was terrible, extremely hot, no open windows. The rooms And all the hostel was very clean. Breakfast is ok. We just wanted to sit in the lobby with couple of beer bottles and the crew kicked us out.

At first I thought the hostel was really cool - nicely decorated, good music, clean rooms, etc. HOWEVER, the stay was extremely unpleasant! Though there's a huge lounge area, guests are not allowed to drink alcohol bought outside inside the hostel! We brought a couple bottles of beer and were intimidated by the staff that they'll call the police if... More

I have interacted with several staff members here and every one has been incredibly rude and unhelpful. It has really made my stay in calafate less enjoyable. While it is a clean hostel, I would definitely not recommend this place!

The good: Cool common area with pool table, large flatscreen TV, tons of lounging space, bar area that also served some food. Fair price for the room if you´re OK with staying in a 10 bed dorm. Rooms were clean enough. The bad: No lockers in the rooms to store things. There are small lockers outside in the hallway, but... More
