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. Especially the manager Walter who took us on a tour of the Quebrada de las cochas (highly recommended) and put on a delicious barbecue one night... More

We had an ensuing double room looking out onto the courtyard full of wonderful ripe grapes. We were lucky as it was very peaceful and just what we wanted. Very comfortable stay. Thank you. Good wifi and okay breakfast. Did the tour of the amazing countryside out of Cafayate and that was also good.

The courtyard at Rusty K is gorgeous, the rooms were clean and spacious. Great location very close to the plaza. The top bunk in our dorm room was a bit too high with no step or ladder. Unfortunately the reason for the average review is the service the day we arrived was abysmal. We were told one price and then... More
