Got lucky with this place! Stayed here in March 1-3 for $40USD per night. Alan, the cook, made us delicious fish for dinner and packed a great lunch for our Ice Trek at Perito Moreno Glacier. The staff were incredibly friendly, helpful, and very attentive. Beautiful rooms and view from hostel. Had a great time practicing my Spanish with staff... More

I Wonder how Hotelcom/Expedia could offer this "down to earth place" us for 400 + Euro pro night? Explanation still on hold. The Lupama is a kind of simple and poor designed Hostel. Something went complete wrong. Reception only in spainish no other languages. Seems like young and unexpirience folks , not involved. The room is poor designed. This was... More

On 4JAN I reserved a room online for 6 & 7JAN at $140 per night. I arrived at 14:30 on 6JAN and the price was $190. It wasn't worth it and it was not the quoted price. Told them I didn't want the room. They said 'read the contract'. Complained via E-mail to Booking.com After a number of E-mail exchanges... More

I stayed at Lupama with my daughter. The room was confortable, clean and quiet. Had a bathtub which was useful after the tours. The breakfast was very poor and just until 9:00 am!! But the staff full of young people was very helpful and attentious. We could walk to town but would get a cab to come back, because of... More

For example, to pay the minitrekking excursion, we had to withdraw 900 pesos in downtown to booked it; - The food... More

There is not any Internet access in your room. To use your laptop, you must access the Internet at the reception lobby and breakfast area. The hotel is located 2 km from downtown. It does not provide transportation. So, you walk or ask the receptionist at the front desk to call a taxi. Cost 10 PESO one way. Rooms are... More
