Stayed for two nights. Arrived late the first night but was supported to book two tours directly in the hostel, starting the next day. Rooms with 4-bed-dorms are very nice, bathrooms clean ans with hot water. Breakfast sufficient for 50 pesos extra. Overall: very recommendable

Old but clean! Excellent infrastructure! Excellent shower! Very clean room! Excellent breakfast (not only the food, but also the personnel who works at the restaurant!!) Excellent price (value for money) Offers several tours at front desk! Straight forward but nice personnel! A special thanks to Claudio who took good care of us!

We stayed 3 nights in the Calafate Hostel in a private room in the hosteria (part of the hostel). We liked that they have a restaurant at the hostel where we did have breakfast and a dinner as well. The room #2 is including private bathroom and can be used as a triple room which gave us lots space. Location...

We booked a private double room with shower, the room was spacious, the house keeping lady came everyday for cleaning, very tidy! Staffs at reception were super friendly and helpful! Especially Patrick, he was very informative and nice! He's definitely the highlight of the hostel! There're wide range of tours that you may reserve, also some special deals if you...

Good location. Clean dorm room and beds. WiFi drops out and doesn't reach all areas of common room. Tight kitchen, no fridge space or labeling system. Shared bathroom shower cubicles are curtained off, but area to dry and dress is locker room style. Can pay with credit card. Staff unhelpful with anything competing to the tours they sell, nice staff...

I stayed here with my husband and toddler for 3 nights in a private double room. The hostel itself has a good kitchen and large communal area to eat / relax. We were surprised when housekeeping turned up with a travel cot for our son, which was unexpected but convenient. Only issues were the bed, which creaked so much that...

I've been here to chill and relax. I booked a 4dorm with private bathroom. Lucky me. First night we're 2, second night just me! Friendly stuff. Great atmosphere! I would love to stay longer! It's just 2 blocks from the mainstreet, 10-15 minutes walk to Laguna nimez.

Brilliant hostel, great location, super accommodating staff. We stayed here for just one night (our first in El Calafate) as was a bit above our budget but most other places were full. Despite this the staff were really lovely and accommodating. Helped us organise our tour at the very last minute so we didn't waste any time and the price...

Please be aware that this hostel has bedbugs. I was covered in bites after two hours of sleeping in one of their dorm rooms, was moved to another dorm room where there were also bedbugs and then finally to a third private room which was fine. When I asked to use the staff washing machine to put my clothes through...
