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

It has been mentioned before, but the rooms beside the desk are akin to sleeping on the couch in the lobby. There is no sound-proofing between the stereo literally right outside your door, the people in the lobby or the front-desk AND your room. Unless you don't mind the noise, ask for a room further in the hostel. I booked... More

We stayed here 3 days and within this time we saw plenty of things. The staff is very helpful and informed us about the best options we had. Perito Moreno, glacier tours and horseback riding. The hostel is very nice, the rooms are also nice, clean and warm. Before arriving here I read some reviews about the noise during the... More

Wouldn't have minded if said so on description, have walked further to other hostels from station. Nice welcoming staff. Have communal BBQs arranged for small fee.

I booked a 4 night stay at this hostel after reading all of the good reviews I read. The hostel offers extremely friendly staff that love to push tours on you, but overall like to help you e kitchen facilities are great for making your own food. The location is a bit out of town but the walk is only... More
