After arguing with them we saw are names writen in there notebook in the paid section and it was deleted with an tipex, and we have... More

At morning we asked the reception for one more night (even the rooms small and not clean, not really hot water and wifi like 90' speed). The manger shouted (not said) we didn't pay for the last night and we need to pay for the night. We... More

We stayed in the hostel just one night, because it was not very clean, we've been beaten by bed bugs & we preffered to change the hostel. The kitchen is also not very clean, fortunately we've met some nice travellers and we had a nice evening together.

This is the cheapest and one of the best hostels i've been to. Great location. 2 minutes from the main street, and 5 minutes from the bus station. The owners are nice and friendly. That's a little bit small and dense hostel, but for 60 $ ar that's perfect.

This was a nice hostel. Everything is pretty basic, but you can find all you need. Hot showers, a kitchen (that may be a little better equipped tho'), wifi, staff is friendly... Overall we had a nice stay. The breakfast is not really a breakfast as it's 'liquido', aka only water, coffee, tea and milk. It was pretty clean, but...... More

I stayed a few days in there. At first, there's no problem. But when I moved to another room and there are bedbugs. They bite me more than hundreds of times. It really painful. But the manager didn't apologize and charge full amount of money. And he said 'there's no bug.' and pretend doesn't speak English. I continue complaint about... More

Rooms were 4 beds, so fairly small if fully occupied but luckily we were here on a quieter week and had a room for the two of us. We paid 40$ar per night and had the third night free, so unbeatable on price in the area. Also the owner is able to provide great information on tours and activities in... More

Cheapest hostel in El Calafate - but it's nothing special at all! The rooms are tiny, the kitchen filthy, the toilet in the ladies leaked all over the floor, and I got bed bugs from this hostel!! But if you're trying to save a penny this is the place to be!!
