Good: Nice friendly staff with good overall vibe. Location is ok, about 500 meters from center. Bad: Wifi only in public areas. Tv in room didnt work, said the satellite was broken. The breakfast that was included in the price was a joke - regular cereal with milk, toast and cofee. Thats all. The bed in the room was dirty... More

Even it is not a five stars hotel, this Hostel is the perfect place to host and share the cosmopolitan atmosphere of El Calafate, they have excellent shared and private rooms, very clean and excellent staff ready to help at all, the restaurant is excellent .... It is a highly recommended place

I found this hostel based on recommendations -- and it turned out to be above average. I had a four-bed dorm almost to myself for most of the 5 nights I spent there. The friendly staff helped me to find the right tour operator for the Perito Moreno glacier and a day-long estancia outing on Lago Upsala. A clean kitchen... More

Found this hostel based on a recommendation and it turned out to be a good experience. The people working at the front desk were very friendly. We got a private room for the night with a bathroom, it was very clean and well maintained from the bedrooms to the bathroom. One thing was the people at the restaurant were not... More

I stayed in this hostel for 5 nights during December. The rooms were clean but unfortunately the bathrooms are shared. They are clean enough, though. A tip for the hostel, maybe provide hand soap in the bathrooms? There is a really good restaurant to the side of this hostel with excellent food (although expensive) and good service. Won't be coming... More

We were really impressed by the look from the outside of the place. We are traveling Argentina for three weeks and changing every two nights the hostels we are staying in. This one was not our best experience. Not the Argentinian Standard. The rooms are clean which is a good thing. The service and the staff is mostly trying to... More

My friend and I stayed here for 4 nights. We found the staff unbelievable rude, patronising and unhelpful. The rooms were a good size, but no air con and you couldn't breathe. There was blood on the floor of the room (tiled floor) that did not get cleaned for the duration of our stay. The kitchen was terrible with hardly... More
