They take the time to inform you about the activities in the surroundings and make you feel at home. It is a 20 minutes walk to town, but we did not mind. The... More

Okay, so this is a 25 minute walk from the centre of town but we can't recommend this hostel highly enough. If being in the centre isn't essential for you, do yourself a favour and stay here.

We stayed here a tad reluctantly as it was slightly out of the main centre. But it was the best choice we made as we were treated to beautiful views, welcoming owners and a pleasant stay all round. The place is immaculately kept, provides lots of space for its guests and the owners will go out their way to help... More

We are a family of 4, (kids 9 and 12) who spent 3 weeks in the El Bolson area. We picked this hostel because it was located near some friends of ours, and it turned out to be a winner. We used it in 3 chunks of time, as we also did 2 hiking trips in the mts at the... More

Another solid hostel experience in Patagonia. We found this hostel on one of the booking sites and were a little wary as it was very new - we need not have been! We originally booked for 2 nights and extended 3 more times until after a week we decided it was time to continue our adventure. Within the course of... More
