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

Beautyful hostel, with a great courtyard. Perfect rooms, perfect staff (they are full with tips and informations), great location. We enjoyed a good asado on one night. Nice for meeting other travellers! Breakfast is upper average and included.

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...

Unfortunately I only stayed here for 3 days, I could have stayed here for my entire life. Best hostel I stayed in during my entire trip across the South American continent. Lovely rooms, peaceful courtyard and great staff (especially the ultra cool manager Walter). Great bbq's on most nights and a great trip into the surrounding canyon land. Also there... More

I had a wonderful three nights at Rusty K hostel. I wish I could have stayed longer. The rooms are comfy and clean and great hot showers. The staff are so friendly and helpful.
