I stayed 3 days at the annex of the hostal in a dormitory and just love it. Perfect place to chill out, really clean, well equipped kitchen and such an helpful and friendly staff. If you are lucky enough to be there while it is full moon don't miss the opportunity to do the small group full moon tour to... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. The double room was cosy and clean. The staff and the owners were friendly and helpful. We also liked the garden to chill out and relax. The bbq was great and really yammy! We would come again!! Gracias Rusty-K Team! ;)

I think that the best place to stay in Cafayate is the "Rusty-K Hostal" (Rivadavia 281; phone 422031). I've made (maybe) seven multi-week -- sometimes multi-month -- trips to Argentina over the past 14 years, and I think I've stayed at the Rusty-K five times. ¡Each time it's been great! The rooms (mostly in-suite doubles, a few private rooms with... More

I received the warmest welcome at Rusty-K. Everyone that worked there was incredibly friendly and super helpful! They really care that their guests have a nice time and enjoy the town. The rooms were super clean and spacious, as were the common areas and kitchen. The staff had an asado one night, which was great fun and a good way... More

My boyfriend and I stayed there in a double room with private bathroom. The room was specious, pretty and super clean and the same with the bathroom and all the common area. They have an amazing patio to sit around and chill! It has a lot of plants and really many grape trees. The staff and owners are super warm,... More

I really wish I could give this hostel 5 stars. It's beautiful with a gorgeous courtyard covered with vines. The structure itself is rustic and so well maintained. It's definitely one of those hostels you don't come across often in terms of quality. Unfortunately I cannot bring myself to give them 5 stars. There was no wifi at all. The... More

The staff are fantastic, helpful and kind exmspecially with my bad Spanish. The owner is super friendly and often around for a chat about where your from and where you... More

The most amazing feature of this hostal is its grape vine-lined patio. Not only do you get a wonderful view of the mountains surrounding the town, but you are surrounded by a beautiful garden and in the summer months you can simply reach up and help yourself to some delicious grapes! A perfect place to relax, drink a cup of... More

Rusty-k is a well located and charming hostel. The back terrace is a great feature and unlike other hostels breakfast is brought to your table and staff are on hand to wash up afterwards. The breakfast is quite simple - cereal, bread and dulche de leche with tea or coffee but it's ample to start off the day. There are... More
