We stayed here for 2 nights in a double room with shared bathroom. The views are as stunning as everyone says. The bedroom was comfy, clean and warm with great views. Although it overlooked the square it was not noisy while we were there. The balcony and lounge are great for relaxing and meeting up with people. The kitchen is large and well stocked with equipment and several cookers. All the staff were very friendly and helpful and always available. They can help organise various things (bike rides, kayaking etc). It's really good but Nothing is ever 100% perfect and we were surprised that they want advance payment if arriving after 4pm but they do not accept PayPal or credit card! The hostal staff managed to work it out for us, so no major problem. Breakfast is basic but with fresh homemade bread. Wifi is available in the rooms although it can be a little slow. Overall we would highly recommend this hostal. It was excellent value and cheaper than some we've stayed in. If you're in Bariloche try Penthouse 1004, you won't be disappointed.

Penthouse 1004 is in the perfect location with friendly staff and an incredible view over the lake. Great atmosphere with comfy common areas to meet and chat with other travellers. Dorms are spacious and plenty of bathrooms. Massive industrial kitchen with everything you could need. Highly recommend.

Penthouse 1004 is in a convenient location right in the city center of Bariloche with a great view over the lake. My husband and I stayed over the New Year holiday when the city was fully booked and we were thankful to find a double room with shared bathroom in this hostel. The hostel has a friendly vibe, lots of travelers hanging out in the common areas and cooking in the kitchen. The staff were helpful in getting us bus cards and helping us find the routes to the areas we wanted to visit. They make nice homemade bread each day for breakfast, along with jam and dulce de leche. The staff also organized a potluck New Year's party which was a lot of fun. I think this is a good place for travelers who want to meet other people.

My main complaints are about the quality of sleep and the cleanliness of the place. We were unable to sleep between the hours of 3am and 7am due to the unbelievably loud cars racing outside on the street below the hostel. They revved their engines and were yelling outside all 5 nights we stayed there. The building itself is a bit of an eyesore, and the hostel facilities seem like they may not have been updated since the place opened around 17 years ago. The shared bathrooms were not great and our room had worn out carpet and bedcovers and dingy red curtains. It is fine if you just want someplace central with good social life, but there are nicer places to stay for a similar price in Bariloche.

Room Tip: Rooms on the side away from the plaza get less street noise

I was recommended this hostel by a fellow traveller whilst at the Iguazu Falls. It was probably the best recommendation I had over my entire trip. The main thing people say about this hostel is the view, and for good reason, it has to be the most amazing view for any hostel in Argentina. Taking the incredible view out the picture the hostel is still brilliant. Great breakfast, comfy beds, really helpful staff and excellent laundry service. Also a great atmosphere around the hostel.

Stayed a few nights here back in December, really lovely hostel with AMAZING views! Worth staying here for the view alone! Staff are extremely helpful, while here I broke my tooth eating breakfast, as it was the weekend it wasn’t so easy to find a dentist however Annie rang around loads of places and eventually found a dentist that could see me! Would definitely recommend this place.
