“Highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2011

I would recommend any traveller to stay at Mysten Kepen.

I've been there with my family and we all enjoyed our stay there. My parents are both in their 60's and they've never been to a B&B before, it was their first experience and they loved.

Rosario and Roberto are very helpful, as I confirmed my stay there Rosario offered to pick us up at the airport. Then, I booked a room with private bathroom for my parents and a room with a shared bathroom. My room was kind of small but while we were in a tour Rosario and Roberto moved us to a bigger room, which I thought was fantastic!

Also I didn't book any tour in advance, I had a few things in mind and when we arrived there they helped us booking the excursions, renting a car, giving directions, making restaurant reservations.

The bathrooms and the entire house is extremely clean. They have a small dog which I barely saw or heard.

The breakfast was pretty good, we felt like home. I have nothing to complain.

Location is ok. I had no problems at all, but my parents felt really tired to go uphill at night. It's 10min walking from the main strip but as we walked the whole day they were exhausted when we reach our B&B.

Well, I only have to compliment Rosario and Roberto for their B&B. The days that we spent there was awesome!! Thanks a lot.

After 5 months traveling in South America, we can confidently say our time at Mysten Kepen offered the most homely and comfortable stay imaginable.

The family at Mysten Kepen went out of their way to make sure we were always comfortable, offering lifts into town, plenty of helpful advice and even delicious homemade soup on a rainy day. It was the little things that made us feel at home.

The room was of a very high standard and good value for the price - impeccably clean, comfortable bed and heating and modern bathroom.

A good place to practice your Spanish also over breakfast and in the evenings! : )

Thank you for a wonderful stay.

I booked this room based on the wonderful reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. You are living with the family but they are very welcoming to the visitor. They spoke very little English but gave us the chance to practice our little bit of Spanish in a relaxed environment. For us the living situation with the family and the kids floating around was very enjoyable but if you are looking for a more private time then this may not be the place for you. It is located up the hill and not in the center of town but was very easy to get to and from. We did one tour they recommended but didn't feel like there was pressure to do more and it might have been because of our limited Spanish. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend it for anyone interested in a home stay. Coffee, fruit and snacks are available all day which was wonderful. There was a lot of loud music playing next door and barking dogs but you never know what to expect. We were usually tired from our day's activities so never had a problem going to sleep. The music was worst on Saturday nights.

Mysten Kepen is over a 10 min walk to the main strip in a very residential area which was surprisingly noisy due to the number of dogs in the area and the neighbour blasting his music at a very high volume (luckily not late at night). We stayed in a room with a shared bath as we were told a few days before our arrival that the ensuite room we had booked a few weeks before was no longer available and we were disappointed the room had been given to someone else. To be fair, they did offer us a discount or to help us find an alternative B&B.

The shared bathroom is kept very clean though as is the room itself and the entire house. The B&B is actually operated from the family's home and personally I found the size of the house far too small to be run as a B&B - I think one of the kids bedroom was right next door to ours. Due to this, we found no where to relax at the end of the day as the family lounge is used by the family themselves and we would have found it a little awkward to just sit there amongst them invading their personal space.

The breakfast was standard and the owners were helpful but a little too forceful in trying to get us to stay at their friend's B&B in El Calafate. Even after politely declining and informing them we had already booked accommodation, we still felt a little pressurised but declined again after they had enquired whether we had paid for it yet. As B&B owners themselves, i'm sure they would not have appreciated someone cancelling their booking only hours before they were due to arrive.

Apart from feeling like you are actually staying in someone's house right alongside the family, all was good but just a little claustrophobic for us.

This is a very good value for family home room rentals in Ushuaia, and the owners go out of their way to be helpful. Note, however, that you have to be comfortable with living alongside a family. Also, the location was mixed, although much of Ushuaia is that way frankly. Very good breakfast, and snacks are offered all day, which is nice.

We stayed for 4 nights, waiting for the strike in Chile to clear up. It is a very nice place. Don't get me wrong. But based on the reviews, you would think you're staying at the Four Seasons. It was very clean. The shared bathroom was always clean. The breakfasts were standard Argentine (maybe 1 step above). The host was super helpful. Almost too helpful. We felt like he tried to upsell us on a lot of tours. A cruise to Antarctica leaving tomorrow for half price? A tour bus to see penguins. A tour to go up the chair lift. We felt like we were always turning him down--which does cause a bit of guilt. It's definitely more of a "home stay" than a B&B. His kids were always downstairs playing video games and his family uses the same kitchen that guests use. But they do preach the "mi casa es su casa" mantra, so if you can get over the awkwardness of feeling like you're staying at their house, it's a nice place to stay.

Never has "mi casa es su casa" meant as much as in this lovely home. We expected to stay 3 nights but stayed a week. The rooms are kept spotless including the modern bathroom. Rosario and Roberto were very helpful with excursions and also with our spanish. Each morning there were fresh pastries along with coffee and toast, cereal if desired. Always there was fresh fruit available. We recommend this B&B very highly for a comfortable, affordable, friendly, stay.
