My husband and I stayed here for a couple of days waiting for a cruise to Antarctica. The room was clean and nice. Wifi did not work in the room. There is no lounge area or sofa to sit on so if you want to relax, you have to sit on your bed or sit in the dinning room. Breakfast... More

This casa (this place is not a hostel, owner says so!) is located 20-30 minutes walk from the center. Really close to a big supermarket but everything else is min. 10 minutes walk away. If you want some tourist attaction this is not your place. Price is not cheap but not expensive either, somewhere in the middle compared to prices... More

Miss Alba is very atencious. When we came, she explained us about the city, the weather, etc. She gave us a map pointing for us supermarket, restaurants and some points that would interest us. The room is very simple, bathroom ensuite. The cleanliness is poor inside the bathroom. The B&B is not central, it´s about 10 to 15 minut walking... More

The pension is located approximately 1km or 15min from the city center, towards the airport. Located in a quiet neighborhood. The rooms and bedrooms are finished in wood, which creates a very pleasant climate, like a mountain hut. You can really feel the atmosphere of the end of the continent. Owner is very nice and helpful. I recommend.

Experiencing some B&B and Hostels you will find the guestkeeper sometimes very hearty and interactive with their guest, sometime you'll find them down-to-earth and transaction-orientated. The latter counts for Alba B&B. Considering the room and the private bathroom (towels included) everything was all right. The room was spacious and the bathroom had everything needed. Breakfast was already organized for every... More

The location is not so bad. The city is small, so everything is close. The place is about 10 minuts from the main street - on foot. The hostess is not friendly. She gave me some ironic speechs for little things, like when i called her by the ringbell as she hasn´t given me my keys. She tries to push... More

The room is very simple: bed, chair and coat rack. Clean linen and towels, a good heater to withstand the cold. Shower with hot water and relatively clean. There was a bit of slime on the tiles, but nothing that compromises. The hostel is quite simple, with few bedrooms. Is nothing more than dining room , where we take the... More

Hostel Casa de Alba is a quiet and safe accommodation for backpackers. Our room was clean, beds were made daily and the linen was changed during our stay. Shower was a bit cramped but OK. Casa de Alba is at 20 minute walking distance from Ushuaia centre, taxis however are cheap. The lady owner is friendly and welcoming. She has... More
