We really enjoyed staying there. Very friendly and helpfull staff, a clean and well equiped kitchen all along with many nice people and events organized by the hostal. The rooms were small but clean and individual. The living room area is a very cosy place where you can just chill and chat with other people staying or working there.

The best thing about this hostel is the staff who are super friendly and helpful. It really feels like staying with a family. Thanks so much to Pablo, Davide and Nathan. Dorm room (sleeps 6) was comfortable if a little tight if there were more than 2 people trying to get at their bags. Big lockers held rucksacks and all... More

It's really good to stay in a hostel where you can feel at home, especially when u r travelling all around , bread and jam are HOMEMADE, staff is awesome and talk about the owners , super cool easygoing guys . Nothing to say more than that's the place to go and stay in Bariloche. 10/10.

We stayed there for several days and changed rooms. They were all really comfortable and cozy. Most have an outlet and personal light for each bed, super convenient! The bathrooms are private, not one big bathroom with a row of showers and sinks and the water is always nice an hot. The staff is extra friendly and helpful with anything... More

We stayed at the hostel for only one night in Bariloche but it was great. We had read reviews about the staff being very friendly and helpful and this is what we found as well. We were looking for trekking information in the area and were given some suggestions as well as where to go to find other information (Club... More

Good location close to the main streets and bus stops. Nice garden. Super friendly and dedicated owner. Nice atmosphere. Dorm of 4 is ok. Only 1 electric socket for the whole room which is not convenient. Well equipped kitchen with homemade jam and bread in the morning with no limit of time which is great. Dorm of 6 is just... More

Great place to stay. Close to the main town. Rooms were comfy and well insulated from noise. Breakfast was very good. Homemade bread with dulce de leche and cereal. Most of all the owner and staff were so nice and welcoming, making the overall feeling of the hostel extremely friendly. Great place to stay as long as wanted.

Hostel Achalay is a truly delightful hostel and the perfect place to base yourself for exploring Bariloche and surrounds (quite possibly one of the most beautiful places in the world). Not only is the location superb but the staff are wonderful at giving advice and helping you get where you need to go. Actually, the staff are just wonderful all-round!... More

I stayed in Bariloche for 6 days, (5 nights in Hostel Achalay). From the first moment on arrival the staff were very friendly and accommodating. I was travelling at that time with 3 other persons and we checked into a 4 bed dorm for the duration. Each room was named after famous musicians. Our room was named after Jimi Hendrix... More
