We were lucky in that there...

The whole family who run this Hostel were very welcoming, taking time to talk to us and help us chose the cheapest way to visit the Glacier. The kitchen is not very well stocked but fine and the rooms are very small. But it is cheap and friendly.

This hostel was such a warm, homely experience. We arrived at El Calafate and were presented with a great deal for a 2 night stay at the hostel - we ended up staying much longer. The area is beautiful, only 10 minutes to town, but the winning factor is the hospitality of the family that run the place. They were...
