My wife and I travelled throughout Chile and Argentina in November 2015. The staff at the Nakel Yenu hostel were incredibly helpful. They helped us book some of our most memorable excursions and made sure that we were adequately equipped. We had a private room right off the main lobby. It was quiet, clean and safe. The kitchen nearby was... More

The staff are very friendly and kind, and offer great advice on how to get around. Wifi is available, and the bathrooms are quite clean. The beds are comfy and the views are quite nice as well. It is situated just a walk out of the main town.

They left the broken curtain holder and still put the curtain pole on the remaining part, in result, the huge curtain pole dropped on my head when I tried to open the window. Even after my head was bleeding, the owner... More

A great place where to stay in El Calafate. Friendly staff, good breakfast, very clean and safe place. Dorms are nice, maybe a bit small, but comfortable. The guys at reception provide you with every information you may need, including reservations for transfers or treks. If you plan on doing the minitrek to Perito Moreno, make sure you do call/email... More

Very friendly staff, good vibes in communal areas. We stayed in a private double with bathroom which was a bit of luxury for us backpackers! Towels and shampoo provided! We looked in at the dorms and they looked really nice and the bathrooms were very clean. Dining room with chill out space was great fun in the evening. Good location... More

WE had a room with a bathroom for two people. There is no real furniture in the room but as the room was large that was not a problem. Breakfast was almost basic. Everyone at the reception was very helpful

This is pretty much the first time I'm giving a review for any hostel, stayed here for three nights and can't recommend it enough! The staff (in particular Fede, Nacho and Juan) are so great, they went above and beyond to make me feel at home here, booked all my trips, buses and transfers. The weekend I stayed there it... More

Located in a quite neighborhood (10' walk away from the main-street) this hostel offers clean rooms with decent facilities. Dorms are spacious with good beds and big lockers for everyone big enough for your backpack. Clean bathrooms with good showers (hot water with decent water-pressure). The common-room is great to meet people. Breakfast is ok (warm bread with butter/jam, tee... More

Superb experience. This hostel located 7-8 minutes from main street is outstanding. Top quality for friendliness, cleanliness and helpfulness. All the staff are extremely friendly, and will know your name before you have met. Knowledgeable about tours. Well maintained building, painted, repaired and surrounded by lavender, roses etc. The cleaner works 8 hours a day, in both communal areas and... More
