This is my advise, walk away and look for another place!! Price extremely expensive (more and more expensive than SOUTH PATAGONIA), there is no service from the staff that wasn't in the reception! Cold shower, just one bathroom for everyone and outside the complex (how is it possible?!!)! Kitchen available but no things (for ex. Forget to use spoons, there...

Having read the other reviews for this place we decided we would try it anyway and maybe people were exaggerating about the staff. But no, the reviews are all spot on, the staff really need to work on their customer service and people skills in general. Granted we only speak a little spanish but we clearly told the girl when...

What a dreadful place this is, impersonal and unsafe. The breakfast was a bit of a joke. My dorm was next to the road and between 4 and 6am kids returning from niteclubs are screaming and shouting outside yhe window and at times banging in it. While I was there a man had his phone, and laptop stolen and me,...

I dont know how they managed this. They wouldn't let us leave our bags there while we left to watch the wales even though a sign on the wall...

Staff extremely rude and unhelpful. For example, on the day we left we were taking a bus at 4:30pm, but were not allowed to use any of the facilities at the hostel after we checked out. We were not even able to store our luggage because they said we would not be able to collect them until 5pm, after our...

The place is clean which is why I have given it two stars. Otherwise there is little good about this hostel. The breakfast starts at 8 which is the time most tours start at. When we asked if we could have it at 7.45, the lady on duty said she would ask the person doing the breakfast. Imagine our surprise...

By far the most basic accommodations you can find, but the room was clean, private bath and breakfast included. We also had free parking for our Jeep inside the courtyard. Very safe. For the price, this is a great "budget" stop. Everybody was nice and we met fellow travellers headed to Ushuaia.
