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

Good hostel, good location, nice people, good breakfast. The garden is really beautiful, and I bet it's better in spring / winter when the vine is plenty of leaves.I recommend it if you plan to go to Cafayate. Of course,

The Rusty-K Hostal was easy to find from the bus stop. It's only a short walk from the central plaza. The communal areas are fine: dining room / TV and kitchen. The best place to stay is in the courtyard. We went there in the Southern Winter (June) and it got cold at night. They heat the water using a... More

The drive to Cafayate from Salta is stunning and we arrived at Rusty-k to find ourselves as the only guests! The garden area is beautiful and we had the front master room with en-suite. Despite not speaking a work of English, the staff were lovely and we got by with our terrible Spanish. Walking distance to town, opposite a great... More

Cafayate is a very tranquil place, and well worth a visit! This hostel is just great, centrally located (though Cafayate is not that big!!), with friendly people and nice dorms. The bathroom was a bit grotty and we had to ask for toilet paper, but aside from that it's great. Breakfast is ok. Unfortunately, we missed the asado as we... More

We wanted to stay 2 nights in Cafayate and we ended up staying 5. The hostel has a beautiful patio and we enjoyed our nice room, breakfast with mountain view and chatting with the friendly hostel staff and other guests. Highly recommanded!

I have passed through Cafayate three or four times over my last 9+ years of Argentina travel. I had not been back for four years, though, and was happy that "Rusty K" was still there. And it is still a great place! ! I have stayed at Rusty K three (or so) times over the past 6+ years. Each time... More

This place beats any hotel in every way. We really enjoyed staying at one of their double rooms. The room was a good value and very well kept. The garden and sitting area is ideal for relaxing and reading. Staff (although they did not speak English) was very kind and helpful. Wasn't sure if breakfast was included but the staff... More
