Beautiful place. 10' walk from Calafate "downtown". Very nice rooms (and bathrooms). Breakfast ok, nice view. The stuff could be a little more friendly, but they were very professional anyway. I definitely recommend this place.

Be ready to get cold in el Calafate, but inside the Hostel all is warm, at the rooms even the wood floor gets warm! The place is a bit far from downtown, with a walking distance of 20-30 mins, something to take in mind with low temperatures! but the walk is worth at sunset! The rooms are comfortable, the beds...

Decent enough hostel, clean, helpful staff & good breakfast, but a little out of the town centre being it’s only let down. A plus point is it's only 100 yards away from the best Steak house in El Calafate.

Came in during high season with a group. Hotel seemed overbooked and some of us had to be relocated elsewhere (which i dont understand since the booking is made at least a month ahead). Lack of communication between staff. One person left laundry and no one knew what had happened to it. One staff member at reception just kept ignoring... More

I stayed here for 2 nights with my husband and the place was located a fair bit away from the main strip which wasnt clear from their website. it was fine - no realy objections but it was lacking any sort of charm or personality. breakfast was ok - not great. service was impersonal.

Just returned from a 4 night stay at Posta Sur and it was fine. The room was clean and functional. I don't know what people expect for the price that they paid. We paid $260 U.S for 4 nights. If visitors want to complain then pay $150 U.S and up in order expect near perfection. The breakfast was mostly sweet... More

My husband and I have an ongoing, unresolved debate about the impact of a hotel on your experience in a given place. He values budgetary appeal over charm and aesthetic. I, the opposite. In this instance, Posta Sur made El Calafate feel a bit forgettable and impersonal. We spent the majority of our waking hours visiting the stunning Puerto Merino... More

Was disappointed with this hotel. Firstly, there was a sign at reception advising that it is cash only as the credit card facilities weren't working. Also, the room was ridiculously hot. We stayed for 3 nights and each night the room was too hot which made it difficult to sleep. We asked for a fan (not possible) or any way... More
