I lodged three times at Antarctica Hostel — 5 days, 5 more days and finally 7 days in December, January and March. Among my top 10 hostels in South & Central America (and that after traveling 2+ years down here.) Great dorm rooms, laundry service, fast & reliable WiFi, huge, secure lockers and maybe the best lounge in South America.... More

I stayed at this hostel or 4 nights and enjoyed the experience. All the staff were absolutely excellent - extremely friendly, helpful and welcoming. It was a great change from the surly service I received at the previous two hostels I'd stayed in. The common room is absolutely massive and also has a bar. The kitchen is equally massive and...

This is a decent hostel, in a good location. I was in a 6 bed dorm, with a good amount of space. The kitchen was well equipped, and big enough that maybe 4 people could be cooking at the same time. There was a reasonable size common area that had just okay wi fi (not good enough for me to... More

You get what you pay for. Very simple rooms which are not super clean but ok. The bathrooms & showers are on the ground floor whereas the dorms are on the first floor, which is a pity and a bit inconvenient. The staff is super friendly and helpful. The location is great, within walking distance of all main points of... More

I liked this hostel. Breakfast is included – eggs too! The first dorm I stayed at was great. I did not like the bed on the second one, but it was only for one night. The lockers were great – you need a small padlock. The bathrooms were cleaned every day and they issued you a towel. Laundry service was... More

This was the first hostel we stayed at on our trip to Patagonia and loved it. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The kitchen was large enough to accommodate many people and was kept fairly clean. The breakfast included eggs each morning which was great. The bunks were comfortable. The common room had a very chill atmosphere and was... More

We spent two weeks in Hostel Antarctica - waiting for a trip to Antarctica in November 2013. Gabriel and the Antarctica staff were amazing hosts - incredibly friendly, helpful and generous during the entire lenght of our stay! The double rooms (with shared bathrooms) are basic but very clean and have floor heating (perfect in Ushuaia...). The dorms are functional... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights (17-19 Dec). Gabriel is extremely helpful, and delightful. Everyone at the reception spoke English and was extremely helpful. They helped organize the tours, as well as provided a list of recommendations (we tried many places listed on their little map, most of them were good recommendations). The location is great - a...

Hostel is located very close to the main street, it's very clean and dorm rooms are quite spacious. Atmosphere is very chill, not exactly what I'm looking for in a hostel but if you're into a good sleeping without much noise than that's that. Me and my friend used the laundry service and they cleaned our stuff so fast and... More
