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

Staff particularly Stella very friendly and helpful. Room was clean,bed comfortable but very little space for luggage. Breakfast included "Argentinian Continental breakfast" that is a croissant,cold cereal ,tea or coffee. Plus - walking distance to center of town

Had a stop over in El Calafate for the glacier. One night here in the twin room at the end of the corridor (room 4 from memory) thus stepping distance to the garden. Nice surroundings, clean rooms and average breakfast. Convenient location to bus station meant not lugging bags around town. Served its purpose well at a reasonable rate.

I enjoyed staying in this hostel. Rooms in the main building are very small, basic and clean. I stayed across the street in a 3-bed room with a bathroom. It had great common area and beautiful garden. It is conveniently located right by the bus station, nearby super market and 5 min walk to the main street. It is more... More

Was very excited upon seeing the pink exterior, flowers and private room in the albergue section. My opinion changed quickly. The room was dark, weak shower, scalding water, dirty bedspread (quite unacceptable), weak wifi in the rooms, old/worn decor, bad door and very unsafe in the albergue section as anyone from the street can walk into the area. I checked... More

This place is very close to the bus station, which is handy if you have an early departure, but otherwise I would recommend staying somewhere else (and there looked to be other options fairly close to the bus station). After staying at the lovely Albergue Patagonia in El Chalten this place was a real comedown. I had a room rather... More

We had a good time in this hostel: very clean, very close to the bus station (1 minute walk !!), colorful and very welcoming owners (we shared a piece of cake!): I recomend it, it is definitly a good ratio price/quality and a good place to stay. The 3 beds dorms are small but clean.

The first night we took a twin without bathroom in the hostel part (200 pesos). It was clean and the beds were good, but the room was so small our bags wouldn't fit. The second night we switched to a double with bathroom across the street in the albergue part (300 pesos). Beautifully located next to a blossoming garden. Much... More

Highly recommend this excellent hostel, impeccably clean, good value, very friendly owner (Estelle). We stayed in one of the double rooms with private bathroom across the road of the dorms. Good advise and service with bookings. Very helpful !

We were on our honey moon last week, and spent a few days in El Calafate at Albergue Lago Argentino. Our room, n°8, was beautifully decorated and surrounded by the many flowers of the garden. The staff was very helpful. Breakfast is included (it's yummy!): bread, coffee, tea, jam, fresh pastries... We had a very pleasant time there.
