Defefinitely a good budget option. The rooms are spacious for only 4 beds. The price is very affordable. reception staff are helpful. Only down side is the quality of the internet which is the worst I have seen in argentina.

I guess this does what it says on the tin - it is somewhere to sleep and the room was fairly clean. However, the design of the place is pretty flawed as a lot of the rooms look out onto a sort of courtyard/central corridor and people seemed to want to spend half the night out there talking and playing...

We have been there with a group of 12 friedns. Double and triple rooms(ensuite) are big and clean. Recepction staff always happy to help. Breakfast area big and good to socialize in the evenings. Quiet and close to many places in the city. Will stay again and recommend to others.

It's a very solid option for El Calafate if you don't want to spend too much money for the night. We had a standard double room and were happy with that. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. I forgot my sunglasses and they kept them until I returned 5 days later. The breakfast is pretty standard except the...

Good hostel. But super big, no common area. It is more a usine than a friendly spot. But clean and private bathroom in the share room. The laundry is kinda expensive (150 pesos for a small bag). And kitchen is badly equipped, it is necessary to pay a deposit to get a set of cutlery, (ridiculous), every knife and material...

I think the hostel used to be a hotel so the rooms are quite nice with an ensuite. Heated floors are great too although the rooms could get a bit stuffy. Big kitchen. Staff is nice and helpful with any and all advice. Close to everything in the tiny town. Only bad things - first hostel I've seen in 2...

Helpful staff, clean, nice rooms. For aesthetic and comfort purposes this is a great place. The problem was the feeling of the place more than anything. Much more like a business, not a hostel. Being charged so much for washing, to rent silverware, and the fact that breakfast is NOT included yet not well advertised as not being included, and...

“They try to keep the traffic down at night because the rooms are not soundproofed. If you don't have much luggage, get a second floor room. First floor lodgers hear every footstep.”
