This place at first was quite strange, lots of rules and like others have said you were afraid to step out of line. Tight dorms, no sockets in dorms, wifi only in common area, breakfast is only served from 8:30 to 10am which is barely anything. But the place is clean and tidy and I can understand so many rules...

As most other people have commented, this is a hostel where the rules have taken over! They have recently moved to a larger premises and seemed to have left their charm and sense of hosteling behind. The place has beds packed in like sardines and there isn't enough space for people to eat or drink. At breakfast you have to... More

The receptionist is quite nosy (she listens at your conversations), not very knowledgeable (she gave us wrong information on the ski resort nearby and the Martial glacier) and quite rude (she called me the Italian, although she knew my name). There are many unnecessary rules in the hostel and the Wifi is not very powerful everywhere. You can't charge anything... More

The hostel is clean and there are clean and hot showers. The host family is nice. Breakfast is good. The facilities are good. BUT you can use the wifi only in the recreation room and in the corridor but not in the other rooms. There is a time limit for the computer. The kitchen is locked in the night and... More

Everything is fine with this hostel: rooms, breakfast, location, etc. The living room is perfect to meet new people and WiFi is great. Marisa the hostess is very nice and helpful. Showers are powerful with lasting hot water. If I go back to Ushuaia I would definitely stay at this hostel again. PS they have an amazing dog :)

Maybe we caught them at a bad time or maybe it is just for a younger crowd. We found the heaps of rules and unfriendly staff off-putting. We had one unwashed plate in front of us when several staff members started hassling us 15 minutes before the kitchen closed to clean up and move. The dorm was cramped. We moved... More

This is a very busy hostel, better for young folks. The main hallways are narrow and crowded, the kitchen is small, but they do have a very nice separate quiet building for wifi, etc. The beds are comfortable. There are lockers, but a couple doors were not operable. I was able to do some laundry in some tubs outside and... More

I stayed at this hostel for one night before moving to another hostel. This place was just ok. I found the 6 bedroom door a little pokey and the common room was very small indeed. The bathrooms are decent and overall the place is fairly clean. Breakfast is weak but then again it usually is in Argentina. What I didn't... More
