My friend and I were practically the only guests as we came in low season and the only other guy that was staying there was an Argentine who was staying a bit more long term for a job. Ok, so the dorm rooms were fairly standard I'd say and there was a private bath for the 6-person dorm room (not bad!). From what I can remember, I don't think we had an issue getting hot water for showers. The internet connection wasn't amazing, but they had a computer guests could use downstairs. The breakfast was just bread, jam and coffee so we usually bought some fruit to supplement it. Overall, the staff were pretty friendly and answered any questions we had. Tomas (I think he was the one with dreds who was the manager?) was only there during the day but was incredibly helpful with bus information to see some great views of the lake district. The hostel is pretty centrally located to the main street and easily walkable to restaurants, bars, supermarkets, etc.
The only weird thing (which we'd happened to find in several other hostels) was that we couldn't really figure out who was staying there or in charge at first. Maybe because it was low season and the hostel wasn't even close to full, but the first night we arrived we were let in and there was a huge group of guys sitting around watching a football match. At first we thought they were all staying (or perhaps all worked there?) but found out later that the guy in charge that night just had all his friends over to watch the match. It wasn't all that unusual as we saw it at another couple of "dead" places we stayed in Patagonia in the low season, but made us a little apprehensive about having to bother the guy in charge with questions about how to get places or wifi password, etc. since he seemed to be busy and entertaining his friends.
