Feels a bit like a boarding school. Some of the staff are nice & friendly but there are an abundance of rules proscribed via aggressive signage everywhere you look threatening to evict you from the hostels for various transgressions. It doesn't make for a welcoming or comfortable environment. It's clean, but that often seems to be the primary objective rather... More

I do not recommend this hostel because guests were an inconvenience for the managers and: - It is overcrowded - my room should have had 4 beds not 6 and reception and kitchen areas are far too small - kitchen only open from 8:30am to 10pm - no exceptions, even if Argentines eat late and it is still light at...

We stayed at the hostel of the mother for our first night in Ushuaia. This hostel is a lot bigger then the other hostel. There are a lot of people from Isreal. We stayed in a room outside. I expected to be cold but it was really warm in the room. The breakfast is a bit better then the other... More

We read bad reviews about the hospitality but wanted to see ourselves. The facility is great and in a comfortable location, but the staff is rude and impatient. The rules are too strict and the atmosphere is cold and unwelcoming. Don't go there.

Perfect location. Not too far from the supermarket, ATMs, restaurants and bars. The kitchen was great to use and was extremely well organised. The hang out area was nice to lounge in. And bathrooms were really good with piping hot water and water great pressure. Though what we really didn't like were the endless rules they had imposed and written... More

Rules, rules, rules! The last time I stayed at a place with so many rules I was 17 years old and living with my parents! Most hostels have inspirational quotes posted all over the walls, but this place...rules. Nothing but rules. You can't use the kitchen at all from 10 PM-8:30 AM, which is RIDICULOUS since you can't even access... More

We arrived at the hostel at 9:00 am to drop off luggage as the check in time is 1:00 pm. We weren't expecting to check-in to rooms as we were before time; however, to our surprise we weren't even allowed to use washroom to wash our hands (a very basic facility) or use internet. Even the common area cant be... More

The staff is the worst I have seen in a hotel, I felt very unwelcome. There are rules everywhere for everything: the staff closes the kitchen at 10pm (it's still light in summer!!) and demands that you have eaten and cleaned everything before. But then, they take over the kitchen and use it to cook their own meal and have... More

Beautiful place at the end of the world! Very nice, independent hostel with a great atmosphere. The owners are super friendly and very helpful, there is everything you need and a supermarket nearby. The only drawback: internet connection is not great, you basically only have internet in the living room.

Convenient location, close to main shopping area, supermarket and restaurants. Had a comfortable 4 bunk bed dorm room and had a pleasant stay. As a solo traveller was given advise as to what to see and do. Small kitchen and basic breakfast provided.
