When we arrived to El Calafate, we needed some place to stay for a couple of days. Nakel Yenu is one of the nicest hostels in El Calafate. Service is great, so is breakfast. But what really makes Nakel Yenu a great place to visit is the decoration and the overall atmosphere in the hostel. I highly recommend it !

I landed here after three days in the high winds of El Condor. They had exactly what a tired, dusty girl needed: good hot showers, wi-fi, I was lucky enough to have a whole four person dorm room to myself, and Frederico the man on call was extremely helpful. Nakel is very close to town and they were most helpful... More

we spent 2 nights in a double room with bathroom. The room was clean and the staff is very nice and helpful. Before our arrival, we could book a Perito Moreno Trekking tour through them, so we could take the most out of our time in Calafate (just one day). The breakfast was very good and the hostel is close... More

This hostel was just the perfect place to chill out for a whole week. Rooms were big and well distributed, and they are always maintained really clean; they even make your bed everyday. The 3 guys at the reception Facu, Fede and Nacho are very nice and helpful. They will help you plan your visit to the main attractions and... More

We stayed two nights here in March, we got the infamous room by reception and yes it is very noisy, but then hostels tend to be! Ear plugs solved that issue. And to praise the staff they did ask a group of guys in the lobby could they go out to the kitchen to continue their chat as it was... More

This hostel felt immediately warm and inviting upon arrival. It has a nice warm common room where you can meet people and hang out. The staff is extremely friendly as well. The prices are all pretty similar in the area. The only con was that the shower was not super hot and it cooled off part way through the shower.... More

This was a decent hostel in Calafate. The room and bathroom were fairly clean. Overall, this was a good value for the money. It's a little bit further from the bus station, but worth the small taxi ride over.

Stayed here for two nights, staff were good booking us trips, giving us information. Barbeque was huge and we cooked up a storm. Kitchen dining area is pretty good, hostel computers are really old and slow and need upgrading. It's a bit of a walk from town but seems further just because it's such a small place
