We had a great stay here. We could only book one night as they were full and so then moved to a hostel out of town which was a shame as we really enjoyed it here. The staff and owners were really nice and allowed us back into the hostel to have dinner and drinks with our friends who were... More

We have been 4 guys which left after one night because we hate the place. Unfriendly staff which behave to the guests like little kids. A lot of rules, we felt like soldiers. "Don't use the kitchen, Don't use your ugly shoes, don't put your sheets that way..." Don't go there if you want to feel like in a vacation.

Hostel??? -- Hostile! Don´t let its appearance trick you. What a uncomfortable place to stay! I totally don´t write reviews generally. But this time I feel like I really need to. As stated in some reviews below: Stupid, unnecessary and especially unkindly expressed rules ALL over the place. You better not have an early departure or feel like a midnight... More

The hostel has a good atmosphere, its easy to meet people there, the bathrooms were clean and always had hot water, and I always got good advice from the staff about activities around Ushuaia. Also its important to say that there's an Alaska dog living in the hostel, I like it because the dog is really friendly, but people with... More

When you arrive at the hostel you are not greeted but rather instructed on the rules of the hostel. You must take off your shoes, cannot eat out of the dining room even though lights are off after 10:30 and the kitchen is closed afterwards. Funny how a hostel full of rules does not apply to the owners or their... More

A good review is important but some times a Bad review is more helpful. I will start by saying that the bed is o.k the place is clean and the Shower are almost o.k. Unfortunately the most important thing in a hostel is the friendly environment and help from the staff. this is NOT the case in this hostel. all... More

Regardless of the bad reviews below, I will describe as much as possible my experience at the family hostel Cruz del Sur, back in october 2014. First, the hostel is very well located, near the supermarket, the main street and the harbour. Second, the cozy feel when you step in. It made me think of and old cottage with the... More

+ Great Location, good security - Small rooms, no power points in room, too many rules ,wifi only 'living room', uncomfortable beds. It's definitly not the worst hostel in the world but probably one of the worst I've experienced in 6 months travelling. Too many rules, we're adults not kids, no power points in the rooms is a real negative... More

You either love this place or you hate it. The staff is not the friendliest or helpful. I saw someone ask a basic question about a nearby attraction and it was almost painful to watch them give an incoherent response which just confused the guest. Breakfast is bread, no coffee, uncomfortable seats. The rooms are TINY and you can barely... More
