The hostel was basic, but clean and spacious. And it had really fast wifi throughout. It was a little noisy from the street traffic, but all and all comfortable. It's close enough to walk down to the water and restaurants. We left half our luggage there as we traveled around Patagonia for 3 weeks, but partially wondered if it would be there when we returned. When we returned they couldn't find the key to the closet they put it in, so they hammered the lock for awhile until it broke open. It was entertaining and a bit nerve racking.
They told us there was only one bus early in the morning to the airport and that we needed to take a taxi that they would call for us. We discovered that there were multiple buses all day that went to and from the airport at a fraction of the cost. The airport is really close, so a bus is a better option and value (its a nice bus too). They also said they would pick us up from the bus station for free, but it was a taxi that picked us up with a sign and we had to pay him.
Nice owners, but felt a little shady.
