I stayed for over 10 days at Alaska hostel after only have intially planed to stay for four. Its without a doubt my favorite hostel in Patagonia. If your after a quiet stay away from the city, this hostel really is a must.
Javi and Naty the owners are what make this place so special. It is only a small hostel and is very much a family atmosphere. Its very social, which is a huge plus if your a solo traveller.
Whilst this hostel is a little out of town, that is perhaps what makes it so fantastic. The dorms are very clean, breakfast is included which is a huge plus, even after i missed breakfast one morning Javi the owner personaly cooked me eggs.
There is really no better choice than Alaska hostel in Bariloche, you wont be dissapointed.
