Stayed here 2 nights in a 4 bed dorm. The common areas are comfy and good for meeting other travellers. There's a friendly atmosphere here. The staff are helpful and booked our trip out to the glacier for us as well as our bus to Puerto Natale. Breakfast includes cereal, toast and cake (fruit would be nice for a change!).... More

I stayed at this hotel with my family (4 people), sharing a quadruple room (2 bucket beds) for 5 nights. I don't recall the exact time of our arrival but I think they did allow us in the room a bit before expected which was great! The room was as expected: small, simple but enough (not very well cleaned though,... More

Of course the market establishes the Price. But paying over 800 Pesos (at the time USD65) for a bed in a dormitory is absolutely absurd. The hostel itself is allright though. The rooms somewhat small, the common rooms and kitchen adequate. Staff at the desk were nice and helpful, after check-in they took their time to evaluate excursions and possibilities... More

I was disappointed with my stay at the hostel. I found the staff to be rude, the rooms were small and too warm, the kitchen was inadequate, and it is quite far out of town. The only positives are the communal space and the view. However, the biggest problem with the place is that the dorm beds are way too... More

I had a good experience staying in this hostel.The staff were very helpful. They had computers with internet to combat the lack of a work Wifi connection. They had good breakfast options and plenty to eat. The room was tidy and the bathroom was small.

As a hostel, this place is fine. The wifi is terrible and doesnt really work well. They have extenders to increase router range but the actual internet is terrible and doesnt work most of the time. Also, the front staff female lied to my friend about the exchange rate. He asked for other usa dollar exchange rates and she told... More

I found this place through Hostel world -- Overall it was very impressive for a hostel, exceptionally clean and beautiful. I had to switch rooms once, but it was no big deal -- everyone was very accommodating and nice. I'm an english speaker hoping to learn spanish, and there was quite a lot of english spoken there so if you... More

Stayed in El Calafate for 2 nights in this hostel. 5 minute walk from downtown area which is really easy to get to and a nice walk. Rooms are typical hostel rooms with bunk beds. Breakfast is pretty solid, includes hot drinks, breads, cereal, jams, etc. Staff is laid back and friendly, and good music is always playing! GREAT view... More

We stayed here either side of our trip to Torres Del Paine. The first stay (2 nights) was good and although not cheap was good value for money. The room was clean enough and we were given lots of good tips about where to eat etc. The wifi isn't great when lots of people connect, so it was good early... More
