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

We visited Bariloche in March 2015, and used Hostal Achalay as a base before renting a car and exploring the lakes. The Hostal was great, staff very helpful, our room (double with private bathroom) was spacious, quiet, and comfortable! Couldn't ask for anything more. Position is pretty good, just two blocks up from the main streets, and kitchen/lounge is adequate.... More

Loved the vibe of this place - the staff are part of hostel's community (eating and hanging out with us) which made it such a great place to stay. It's close to the main street and supermarkets, as well as an excellent watering hole, Manush. The rooms are clean and the kitchen is well stocked. Don't miss out on the... More

I have stayed in this hostel for 6 nights in December. The hostel itself is ok. The twin room I was in was pretty small, with a bunk bed, and enough space for one person to move around the bed. The breakfast I would call it basic, homemade bread and two or three types of homemade jams. Also, during my... More

The pictures on the Web page are looking better than it is. Bit old and not well maintained. Breakfast is basic. The staff is nice, helps a lot. top location, close to the busses to the National Parc and their office.

The staff consist of Argentine owners with French and Brazilian staff. They are all great to hang out and add a bit of cozyness to Bariloche. There are nice wooden benches and the wooden bowls for the jam and dulce de leche. The hostel is not located in the city center but only about 3-4 blocks from the main street.... More

Liked: Breakfast, location, good beds, spacious rooms and vibe. Disliked: Not enough bathrooms and electricity plugs in the room. Staff did not show us around and told us there was no restaurant open anymore late when we arrived, but when walking around town more restaurants were open than closed.

Achalay was one of the best hostels we stayed at in Argentina. It was very clean & the rooms were reasonably priced. The staff were all very helpful & friendly. It was in a quiet location close to the centre of town. They provided a good breakfast which included fruit & home-made bread. It had free Wi-Fi. Altogether an excellent... More
