This hostel looks good but needs to improve a lot of details. The staff was very helpful but gave us a wrong pick up hour for a tour. We got up at 5am but when we showed up at breakfast, the kitchen staff laughed at us and told us the pick up wasn't until 6am. The room had a terrace... More

I cant say we had a good stay in this hostel as it lacks several basic things that any hostel has. The wifi from the hostel simply didnt work, the kitchen was most of the times a complete mess with leftovers of other guests, the bathroom never had toilet paper and so on. The staff on the other hand was... More

Staff were rude and unhelpful (or just have no knowledge of Calafate). The WiFi is basically non existent. Rooms could be cleaner and don't even get me started on the bathrooms. Absolutely disgusting - I'm just glad I didn't catch anything. Oh, and the old man at reception is the worst - Yeah, okay. Let's make a single female traveller... More

Calafate hostel pumps so many people through it and as a result, the place is fairly run down. Could be wayyy better with a little maintenance. The four person dorm rooms are a decent size and the beds are comfy and bedding clean. The lockers in the room are too small and tricky to lock. Only 2 out of 4... More

Came here as I joined HI at their Puerto Madryn location where I received a discount off my private room. No discount given here. Room was very basic, much more so than other location. Room had very small window & was very hot. Wifi was awful, couldn't even send a text message via iMessage. Kitchen closes too early as most... More

In general this was an awful experience. We have arrived late night at after 1 am, the receptionist was very confused, it took him more than half an hour to register 3 of us. We were separated to 3 different rooms. The toilets and shower were quite a mess. I've wake up with arm itching, I thought it was a... More

Overall this hostel was just okay. It is pretty big and is one of the cheaper options in town. The kitchen is severely lacking in basic items (no knives or mugs...). The WiFi was very inconsistent for the two nights I stayed there. The worst part was that they only give one key to share between all of the people... More
