As you may have ascertained from the description and other reviews, this hostel is pretty far from the downtown area.

lovely hostel at the top of the mountain in el bolson, definitely one of the nicest of my two months trip in argentina and chile. quiet and peaceful for relaxation, and with a good breakfast! quite a long way from the town centre - an hour's walk - but easily doable by taxi.
