“Beautiful hostel in the center”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

Its a very nice and clean hostel, the staff was very helpful and accommodating, also its very well situated. Although it is located in the ugliest building in town, the indoor is very nice and the rooms have a very nice view of the mountains.

The building might not be a beauty from the outside, but the inside is nice and cosy. Staff is very friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean, the kitchen is spacious and well equipped, and the views are just breathtakingly beautiful. Add a really good breakfast with home-made bread to the mix - no wonder this hostel has such a positive vibe!

Room Tip: If you like to sleep in, try to get a room on the west side, or the sun will wake you up earlier tha...

Our favorite hostel so far...The staff is absolutely amazing. So kind and friendly and go above and beyond to make your experience wonderful. The lounge space and kitchen is awesome but the best is the million dollar view of the lake.
The hostel is very clean and has a homey feel. The only con- the rooms are a bit cramped and the beds and linen could be upgraded.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

This place is a must for anyone staying in hostels in bariloche. It's on the 10th floor of the highest building in town with an incredible view from it's terrace. Breakfast is great, the management bake fresh bread every day.. The building itself is a bit old, the initial rise upstairs is through the service elevators which might give the non-hardened traveller a bit of a jolt but once there, the hostel itself is warm and welcoming. Bedrooms are basic but foods value for money.

All the reviews are true, great place to stay. Friendly staff, nice breakfast with homemade bread, good Internet connection, clean, great lounge area with amazing views of the lake. Good location close to restaurants and buses to sights. Kitchen was really big and clean, great place to cook. Only odd thing was lots of signs with rules like switch off lights etc but I suppose may be necessary in a place with so many travellers. Stayed in a nice clean private double room, bathrooms were clean. Would definitely recommend!

This place takes the cake. Feels more like a ritzy hotel than a hostel. Incredible views, friendly staff that takes the time to learn your name, and a great vibe. The common area is as cozy as could be complete with soothing music. Plenty of bathrooms with hot water. Nothing bad to say here. Worth every penny!
