The people are really friendly! Breakfast is great as they bake there own bread and make fresh coffee! It is 150 meters from the bus station and 5 minute walk from the city centre with all touristic stuff. The rooms are really small and the lockers are in the hall, which is also not big. That makes it sometimes a... More

This is a very charming hostel, with several possibilities: bedrooms for 2, 3, 4 and camping. We stayed in a bedroom for 2, with private bathroom. Very clean, warm and cosy. Not luxurious, but comfortable. The walls are very thin, so we had trouble sleeping one night or two. But because everybody sleeps early and we were always tired, it... More

Traveling through Patagonia, I have stayed 1 night in El Calafate and only by chance stumbled upon this place. The atmosphere was great, I felt really welcome and very safe. Very good quality of wifi, comfortable social "living" room and bedrooms. The staff was amazing! As I speak only absolute basic Spanish and had some issues with flight booking, the... More

We stayed here for two nights. The hostel has two parts, with one building on each side of the road. We stayed in the building opposite the main one, with bigger, en-suite rooms. Although these rooms are more expensive, I would recommend this as the rooms with shared bathrooms were much smaller and more basic - like a row of... More

The wifi was fast, the kitchen was large and well stocked with dishes and pans to eat and cook. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean! I can't imagine needing anything more for a budget hostel! Well done!

Breakfast.....what breakfast, you will need to go buy some of you are used to a breakfast to start your day. Although the common area and kitchen are really good and clean. The showers are hot but...

We chose it because it is close to the bus station! We stayed in the room with private bathroom which is more comfortable with breakfast. It is a nice place although the rooms are small. We cooked in the kitchen and it was very practical

Hostel located in centre of town close to bus station. We booked a double with private bathroom which is set in well kept gardens with comfortable bed and shelf and hanging space for clothes. Breakfast was cereal, home made bread to toast and a croissant. Exceptionally clean, excellent WIFI and lovely owners. Would recommend
