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

A beautifully friendly hostel in Cafayate, one of the best hostel's I've stayed in. The vine covered terrace is stunning! Perfect for an afternoon vino or chatting to other travellers. 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

Rusty-K is really a great place to stay in Cafayate! The staff is really nice and helpful. The rooms are nice (see the pics), clean and there is a pretty interior patio for relaxing. When we were there they also organized an asado (Argentinian BBQ) in the patio. We all sat around a big table which was a great opportunity... More

Pros: Lovely staff; relaxed atmosphere; OK breakfast incl. If you happen to be there when they do an asado (BBQ) you're in for a delicious treat of smoke-infused meat and quaffable local wines - albeit at a slightly higher price than many of the local restaurants charge. Location is also good - close to restaurants and the local market. All... More

Rusty-K is a really awesome hostel. Such a chilled out place. We took the double room with ensuite bathroom and on a separate occasion a week later we tried out the dorms. Worth every penny. The beds were very comfortable! Breakfast in the morning wasn't bad. The traditional Argentinean breakfast of bread and cereal but not bad compared to others.... More

We loved very minute at this hostel. The hosts were very friendly and showed us all the things to do in the area. We got bumped up to an en suite room from a double with shared bathroom due to the booking not showing up. The outside space was beautiful with a vineyards draping over. The hostel dog was amazing...
