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

Showers are hot. Really nice outdoor common areas. Great wifi. Good book exchange. Hostal is in a good location but you can also hire bikes at... 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

The private rooms are big and cozy, the courtyard is absolut gorgeous- very nice atmosphere to relax and talk to other people from all around the world. Breakfast was for argentine hostel standards very good. The staff was very friendly and helpful, we... 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

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
