After studying abroad in la Universidad de Buenos Aires for 5 months, I had been looking forward to getting south to Patagonia and could not have asked for a better hostel to start off my trip! It was my first time staying in a hostel so I wasn't sure what to expect, but the manager, Don Marcelo, welcomed me with... More

Great hostel. I accidentally left my toiletries in the bathroom. While a traveler dipped into them, the maid eventually found them and held them until I returned to Calafate to retrieve them. The wifi is good. The shared computer is from the 1980s and basically not functioning. It has an old school monitor and a 3.5 inch disk drive! The... More

We enjoyed our stay so much here! Marcelo is so nice host, he help us many times. We met such nice people too, the atmosphere was very lovely. The wifi-access was the best we had so far! It's clean and the rooms are big enough. The hostel is up the hill and in the morning you have a beautiful view... More

We loved this place and would certainly visit again! Highlight is host Marcello who is extremely welcoming and helpful and has an excellent taste in music. His English is also very good, even though he doesn't think so :) The rooms are clean, lockers big enough and bathrooms totally fine with hot and powerful showers. The dorm beds could use... More

Nice hostel, close to the center but on a hill, so it was a workout to get there. Nice common space and good rooms. The staff was friendly. Breakfast was ok and the kitchen was ok too. Compared to other hostels I have seen in El Calafate a good choice.

Stayed here as base for some glacial adventures. Very charming - up on a hill, cozy lounge space, comfy outdoor rockers, etc. BUT - we didn't have water the second night, and the hostel didn't fix it then, or the third night. Disappointing. They refunded us one night, which was a nice thought but definitely insufficient given the importance of... More

Charming hostel with nice views on the Lago Argentino. The guy at reception was SUPER helpful. He went above and beyond what could be expected of him to help me. Dorms are good but there is only 1 electric socket for the whole room which is not very convenient. Small but ok equipped kitchen.
