We moved to this hostel from our hostel in mid-town which was very awful and we definitely hit it better here. However, I still had better stays in South America. First of all, it was just too noisy. The entire town with this hostel being no exception was booked out when we stayed there, so we got a room right... More

We stayed here three nights December 2010 and this place was everything it was promised! Very clean, extremely helpful English-speaking staff, awesome BBQs every night, stunning views, and a common space you want to hang out in. The staff booked all of our tours for us too. A great deal and great value.

This hostel is very popular with trekkers and tends to get a younger crowd than my wife and I who are in our 60's. Yes, people have commented that the walls are thin and there is a lot of activity. We used earplugs, but probably wouldn't have needed to as most guests retire early and arise early. It is clean... More

The rooms at the hostel were a little dated but the staff at the hostel were really helpful and the nightly all-you-can-eat parilla was fantastic and well worth the money!

This staff of this hostel are so amazing that all the rest doesn't really matter:)). From the first minute they were extremely helpful, very friendly, competent and always there when you need them. We've never experienced anything similar. The location is pretty good. It is not right in the center of El Calafate (which is 15-20 minutes walk away) but... More

This is not a standard hostel. Here you get more value than you would expect. The staff of this hostel are super friendly and enthousiastic. The atmoshere of the place is great, and offers good oppurtunities to relax with a glas of wine or beer, after a great day around el Calafate. The short walk of 7 minutes to town... More

We stayed for just one night at America Del Sur in El Calafate. It's quite new and in a good location just off the main street in the small town. The staff are really helpful and friendly, offered lots of advice on local places and made us feel really welcome as soon as we arrived. The room is as you... More

I've been there, during my trip in south America. This motel is in a good position, a bit far from the main road of EL CALAFATE, let me say that this is not a big problem since the center of EL calafate is not really interesting. The hoste offers many chances to reach the "Perito Moreno" that is the "REASON"... More

This was my first experience in a hostel and my first experience as a solo traveler, and I believe I chose the right place to visit and perfect hostel to stay in. The hostel is fun, warm, and in the winter, the heated floors were definitely a plus. I was in Calafate in the low season, so there was only... More
