Some of the staff were very helpful and friendly (Andrea and one other guy) and the rest seemed fairly complacent. Rooms were great with lockers and plenty of space and nice bathrooms for each room! Tours were also fairly priced and everything could be booked very easily from the hostel. Social atmosphere was great so don't stay here if you... More

The best part of the hostel was the staff. I really liked the overview chat that they do with each new guest, telling us all of their options for activities in El Calafate, and then recommendations for other places to travel to outside of El Calafate. Matias saw that I booked quite a few days in El Calafate and recommended... More

From the second I walked in, they greeted me and showed me to my room. They helped organized my glacier tour and were always there to answer questions. Probably the best customer service in any hostel that Ive seen. I stayed in Maracaibo, with private bathroom attached. The rooms are really comfortable. The location is about right in Calafate with... More

The staff are hands down..the BEST! super helpful and really know their stuff. Excellent rooms. THE VIEW at sunset...possibly the best back garden I've seen...however, take a taxi to the hostel if you arrive by bus, its on top a steep hill...which wasn't fun to walk up with a 20kg pack...or if you're handicapped, out of shape, etc...I'd stay closer...

Loved this place, the staff are so energetic and friendly and make a real effort to get to know you and make sure you have something planned while in El Calafate every day. Private rooms were well sized with warm blankets and private bathrooms. Storage room for left luggage is available. Could do with faster PCs perhaps?

We stayed here twice - 1 night before going to Torres del Paine and 4 nights afterwards. Staff here are super friendly & more than happy to give advice on things to do & help with organising days trips, bus tickets etc. They also have a same day laundry service which is really useful. The hostel has a stunning view... More

I LOVED this hostel! I was only able to stay one night as it was all booked out but even after that short time I missed the super friendly staff! They were so helpful, accommodating and endearing. The hostel itself is beautiful - ticks all the boxes for what you'd hope for in Patagonia - wooden lodge, large windows that... More

I loved this hostel. It's one if the best places I've stayed. The place is beautiful, with lots of light and gorgeous views of the lake and mountains. It's almost like a hotel. The place is very comfortable and clean. You can't ask more from a place. Friendly and helpful staff as well!
