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

We paid for one night just to use this hostel as a base for packing and starting a trek. We ended up spending the night anyway. The staff is incredibly helpful, especially Anna. She immediately helped us with anything, from booking boat trips, changing money, storing our bags, calling cabs. She even connected us with her Uncle, because he had... More

I carried some work and the place felt like home. Anna and her family were very helpful and gave me full freedom to finish my work. It's a small place but that helps in getting to know your fellow hostel mates better. Overall, a great place to stay and will definitely stay here the next time I go back to... More

I stayed at the Cruz del Sur, Ushuaia, for 4 nights mid december (so early summertime) and I enjoyed it a lot! The hostel is relatively small, clean, well-kept and a good place to meet nice people from all over the world. It's location is very central to the city, harbour etc. The atmosphere is very relaxed, which means that... More
