It was ok, comfortable beds and nice common space. They serve breakfast, and have cleaning service everyday. Usually the lady who cleans the kitchen do it at lunch time, which is not very good, as you want to cook or eat at that time. The recepcionists were not very friendly, and the price was not the best, but it was... More

The staff was super friendly, doing its best to accomodate us (when we visited, there were not so many travelers but they distributed us in different rooms so every one was more comfy, even if that meant more bathrooms etc to clean), the rooms are big, with comfortable beds and private bathrooms, it's very clean and the location is cool...

I made a reservation through booking.com and once I arrived they didn't know about it. They have enough space so I was able to spend the night. The staff was young, dynamic, friendly and ready to help. There are individual lockers and private bathrooms in the dorms.

We stayed here over low season and the hostel was quiet which was nice. But for 160 pesos I would expect a little more. We had to make our own beds on arrival, you don't get a towel, there was no hand soap or hand towel in the bathrooms which I think is poor given communal living. The kitchen only... More

Visited off season, passing through from Bariloche to Pucon, so it served its purpose as a place to sleep but was quite dead. Pretty far from the bus station and main strip, but nice and quiet as a result. The kitchen was a little odd, with set cooking times, so I decided just to eat out instead. Staff weren’t really...

We only stayed one night but it was enough. The hostel is too expensive compared with the service. The shower was broken but we couldn't find anyone at the reception in the late evening, so we had to wait the next morning. And when we asked for a discount, the owner didn't want to hear anything, saying that we had... More

The hostel was recommended to us since we only needed to spend one night in San Martin de los Andes. The location of the hostel itself is several blocks away from the main street and the lake. But, since it was a small town, every place was basically within walking distance. The staff that attended to us on our check... More

On arrival some hostels present a welcoming face that makes you feel welcome and even at home, explaining the ins and outs of the hostel and place. This is not that hostel! The woman at reception seemed to resent having to get up from her celebrity gossip magazine to do her job. She made out as if it was an... More

This hostel has great potential. it looks like it should be a sort of friendly place, but I didn't get that vibe at all. I found people a bit too cliquey, I had to wait every time I wanted to speak to a staff-member - there was never anyone on reception and I didn't even know who worked there and... More
