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!

Close to the bus station and located behind the town centre. Double rooms are extremely small and noise can be heard throughout the building! 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

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
