This hostel looks nice from outside. But when you get into room, you are surprised. It is awful, not very clean, beds are not comfortable, shower was very small that we had no space to turn. Whats more I had insects in my bed. That was very bad night spent there. Breakfast was disaster. Plates and glasses very dirty. We... More

Well I have to admit that El Calafate is not so big but when one just has to walk down one corner to be right in the activity it is kind of close to me wouldn't you say . . . At firts when I came in the place which I had reserved through Internet I felt it was quite... More

I booked this hostel through booking.com. When I arrived they wanted the stay paid for up-front which I paid in USD cash. When I got home I could see they had ALSO charged my credit card, and now they refuse to refund my payment.

The location is absolutely fine. Easy walking distance to the main street with shops and restaurants, and equally easy walking distance to the bus station. One large and one small supermarket within just as easy walking distance. The bathroom smelled bad and the toilet kept gurgling, although I could not be bothered to tell management. The room was also strangely... More

Where do I start.. -Staff were rude, weren't interested in asisting travellers what so ever. -We booked a room with a double bed and when we got there we got 3 singles. We asked staff to change but the rude lady on the counter rolled her eyes and said it wasn't available. (We got it a day later) -Our neighboring... More

Located 1 min from downtown and 2 min from the central bus station, it would be a good solution for your stay in El Calafate and that's why we choose it in the first place, but it ended up to be WORST EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE and this is why: 1) We arrived after 30hr of bus from Bariloche really...

Location and outside are very promising, but as soon you enter the hotel you feel you wouldn't expect to much. Staff doesn't pay attention and doesn't make you feel a valuable guest. Rooms are very basic, but clean. Breakfast should better be skipped, although the plastic cutlery is unique!

Not much to rave about this property except a decent location (1 block to main street). It looks much better on the outside than in. Twin room had only 1 useable electrical outlet where a lamp was plugged plus high up behind an unstable tall wardrobe unit for the TV on top. On the whole, it served its purpose but... More

I stayed here 2 nights. The location is very good, 1mins walk to the town main street. Breakfast was very basic. The room itself was a bit old, but I am there to sleep only, it was ok. I was out sightseeing during the day. If you need airport bus to the airport book as soon as you have time,... More

We chose this guest house for the location and price. It was a street back from the main shopping and restaurant area of town and one street away from the bus station which was very handy to travel in and out. The rooms were great but the floors on the top levels are noisy so ask for a bottom level... More
