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

This hostel was a great place to stay while in El Calafate. The staff was great and very helpful in planning trips. The atmosphere was cheerful, and it was easy to meet other travelers while there. The only downside is the location--about a 10 minute walk from downtown.

We had a really wonderful stay in America del Sur, fantastic atmosphere, lovely clean rooms and a good layout, plenty of relaxation space, wonderful helpful staff, good wifi. Only negative was the kitchen, wasn't nearly as nice as the rest of the hostel.

I stayed at America del Sur on a recommendation of a friend in Buenos Aires and did not regret it. I had only two days in El Calafate and Martin (receptionist) helped me to get the best out of it. He booked a bus for me to El Chalten for the day I arrived (the hostel therefore lost a night... More
