“Amazing...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

... in every aspect. If you travel to Bariloche, you have to stay here. Of course, the view is just unbelievable, but after a view days, that's just one of the pieces which make this hostel unforgettable. The people who own and run the place are really friendly and very welcoming (they even bake their own bread for breakfast!). The common area feels like home just after a few minutes, it's that cozy. Everything is clean and well maintained, plenty of bathrooms, nice big kitchen with about every kitchen utensil you can think of. If you get really lucky (like we got on our last night there), you can experience a potluck dinner - I haven't seen something like this in any other hostel I stayed. Thank you Annie and Gladis!

Fantastic hostel. Amazing panoramic views, a warm and friendly atmosphere, Penthouse is a home away from home. Intended to stay 2 nights but stayed a week. The girls running the place are friendly, helpful and really make you feel at home. Dorms are cozy, spacious lounge and dining area, balcony and a large, well equipped kitchen. Not far from shops, restaurants, supermarkets, bus stop. Great place to meet other travelers too, with occasional BBQ , wine tasting and pot luck dinner nights. Had a great time here and met some fantastic people.

This is a really good hostel! The views from the place are unbelievable; I don't think I've ever stayed in a hostel with views like it!

But along with the views the hostel is really nice. Homely communal areas, modern and clean kitchen and bathrooms, very comfortable beds, friendly staff, good breakfasts included, great location in the town......and the views!

I stayed in room 5 which is the least expensive dorm and which I also think has the best views, big bonus!

I think you'd be hard pressed to find a place better than this in Bariloche.

I stayed 2 night in this hostel and I don't have enough good words to describe the experience.
The location might look a bit strange (10th floor of a building) until you see the breath taking view.
It is organized in a clever way, leaving enough space for public areas.
The room was nice and clean, so was the bathroom, and the bed was comcortable.
The kitchen is very spacious and very well equipped. All the kitchen basic things that you have at home but find difficult to buy and keep while travelling.
Location is perfect, downtown, close to everything possible.
I got such a warm welcome from Cecilia, Anni and Gladis as if it was a reunion of old friends.
They create a wonderful atmosphere, helping, giving relevant information and having a constant dialog with the guests.
It obviously looks that they enjoy what they are doing.

the staff was awesome, but you have to see the view of this place is just incredible you are not able to believe it when you see it. The hostel is a cool relax lounge on the common areas, is full of nice people. Great location a block from all the important buses that takes you skiing and to all the site seeings you need to do, close to every popular bar and clubs. Is pretty comfortable all of the beds, a good night sleep is assured and a healthy breakfast for the next day. Definately coming back to this hostel if I return to Bariloche.

Room Tip: get the last room at the back has the greatest view of all

This hostel is amazing! It is the perfect hippy hideaway. It is comfy and clean and the girls who run it are ridiculously friendly. They go out of their way to be accommodating and have managed to create a real community feel. All the guests become instant friends and we had a massive delicious group dinner together every night, with whichever staff were around.

There are lots of beautiful materials, incense sticks burning, funky music playing and the views could not be beaten.

Location is great.

I could not recommend highly enough and am very sad to be leaving!!
