Very basic dorms but very close to bus terminal . Well equipped kitchen which is vital for calafete prices. Overall fine for a night while visiting perito moreno . About £12 for dorm but standard for area.

This review concerns the private en suite rooms across the street from the hostel. El Calafate is a popular destination and prices reflect this. The rooms are basic and a little dated, but adequate. I found the room fragrance -- whether by spray or diffuser -- overdone and immediately aired out the room thoroughly on each of two stays. The...

For El Calafate it's a good priced accommodation - the rooms are super tiny and if there would have been the third person in the room, I have no idea how to move or even put the backpacks. Shower and everything is super basic and the breakfast has little choice as well. Nevertheless, the family who runs it is super...

We visited this place in Dec 2016 and we really had a great time at this place. Hostel Owner Esthela and Eugenio are nice person and ready to help... Hostel is just 2 mins walk from Bus Terminal. ....Really recommendable place, specially if travelling thru Bus.

We stayed at the Albergue for one night, arriving from Chalten and going to an Estancia, it was just fine given the dimensions of the room; breakfast was of very low quality;the attendant could not get us a convenient car hire but called a taxi driving us to the Perito Moreno that resulted to be a good solution since Pedro...

We stayed in this place for 3 nights in a double private room with bathroom. The rooms are not big, and they are a bit dated, especially the bathroom. However staff was great, especially Eugenio who went out of his way to give us information, made a lot of calls on our behalf to know about times, prices etc. He...

This was a very convenient hostel close to the bus station and downtown. There are a range of room types and we were able to change to quieter ones as it got busy with the younger crowd. Eugenio was one of the most helpful and friendly staff of any accommodation we have ever used.

Small hostel, just 1-minute walk from the bus station, really cosy and welcoming. Estella, who owns the place, but also Eugenio and Pedro who work there, are among the most warm and welcoming people I have met throughout Argentina! They are willing to help you in whatever you may need, not only on hostel-related issues but on your holidays overall....

This was our second visit to El Calefate and we wish we had found this on the first stay. It is so convenient for the bus station. We had a lovely personal welcome from the owner who put us at ease immediately. We were staying across the road from the hostel in a twin room situated in a beautifully scented...

The people are really friendly! Breakfast is great as they bake there own bread and make fresh coffee! It is 150 meters from the bus station and 5 minute walk from the city centre with all touristic stuff. The rooms are really small and the lockers are in the hall, which is also not big. That makes it sometimes a...
