“Clean, helpful staff, croissants for breakfast”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2009

A clean hostel, run by a slightly mad, but friendly and very helpful couple. There are two communal kitchen and dining areas, that were very clean and well stocked in terms of cooking implements. They also had boxes for people to put food / cooking items they didn't want, that could be used by others, eg - oil.

It is a couple blocks from the centre of town, and therefore quiet. You are given croissants every day for breakfast, much better than most hostel breakfasts.

If you are looking for a good steak place, check out El Boliche de Alberto, just go hungry, or share "a portion".

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2008

Albergue El Gaucho lies a couple of streets back from the main shopping street in Bariloche. We tried it out after a few nights elsewhere, looking for something a little more homely, helpful and at a better price.

On arriving to enquire about rooms, owner Uwe met us and within a few minutes, we'd struck up a conversation about our trip and he'd planned out the next few weeks for us! Needless to say, we booked our room there and then and returned the next day to stay for a few days - which quickly turned into a week!

The hostel itself is clean, warm and has all the facilities you'd expect. Breakfast is simple but tasty and there's ample cooking facilities. Uwe and his wife are very helpful at suggesting and booking activities and brilliant guides to the whole of Argentina.

We had an amazing time there, met some great people and I can recommend you try this place out.

  • Liked — the host and his wonderful advice
  • Disliked — No real negatives!
