Great hostel with really friendly and helpful staff, good location and great views over the lake for sun rise and set. Staff had loads of info on day trips and surrounding location which helped me get as much as possible out of my few days there.

The welcome was just incredible. The staff (all of them) could not have been more helpful and welcoming and kind. The location is great - near to town and overall this was a really excellent experience. Thank you so much to the brilliant staff.

America del Sur Hostel has by far the best staff that I have encountered in a hostel in a long time. Everyone was very friendly, helpful, and went above and beyond to make our El Calafate experience the best it could possibly be. The hostel was very warm and the heated floors were life savers. We had a change in... More

The hostel looks like a mid-range hotel more than a standard S.American hostal. It's clean, big and has a view that just gets better each time you look at it. The front desk staff strike the perfect ballance between being attentive/useful and good fun/relaxed. Would happily recommend it to anyone headed down to Calafate. They'll sort you out with tours...

America del Sur is a GREAT hostel to stay with in El Calafate. It is situated on top of a hill with a beautiful view of Lago Argentino. The hostel itself is quirky and fun. The common room has a dining and sitting area, with plenty of room for board games, drinking, and hanging out. The rooms are pretty standard... More
