Although the rooms in this hostel are comfy and spacious, the feel of the business ruins it. Little things, like charging to use cutlery, give you a sense of what's it's like. We were completely ripped off by their glacier package, their tour is around four times the price of others in town and didn't even include everything it promises.... More

You reach it walking, and you can do everything from there. Nice place to stay. My private room was very comfortable. Kitchen and breakfast as at home. Please do pay attention, through which webpage you book, my friend found a room like mine cheaper.

We stayed in this hostel for a few nights twice in March. They have beds in dorm rooms, but we stayed in private double rooms. The rooms have an unusual design, with the sink in the room rather than bathroom. The rooms are very comfortable, the only issue we had is that they have heated floor which cannot be regulated...

Good place to party. They allow loud music and parties in the rooms late at night. I asked reception if they had any noise rules and was told no but that they would ask the people to quiet down. They didn't do this however and the partying continued. We tried to book an extra night and was told we had... More

The staff at Hostel del Glaciar Libertador is wonderful, they are very kind and helpful, and bi-lingual. They helped us with several problems, I can't thank them enough. Nice location, close to town. Our room was clean and comfortable plus free wifi. Breakfast was good, included scrambled eggs

The cleanliness of the rooms, the appropriate level of furniture, the kindness of the hosts and the location make of this place a good one where to stay in El Calafate. The laundry service is really a plus for the travelers who don't necessary have time to care about that.

No matter of hotel, the rooms in El Calafate are very expensive, considering their condition. This hostel has many advantages: it is situated close to the town center, the staff is very kind and helpful, has free wifi and the rooms are clean

Cons: The rooms don't really have windows that get airflow so our room smelled a bit. But the biggest con is the exchange rate they charge if paying by credit card or USD. By far he worst we saw...
