“Very Very Homey”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

Cool place.The place feels and smells like home. It is run by an uncle and his niece which are striving to make everything good for you.
The rooms are a bit too small, that makes them a bit congested, but aside from that facilities are top notch- great showers, equipped and clean kitchen, TV room with WI-FI and great heating system all around the hostel.
The owner has a bit too strict rules about various stuff, but as long as you keep those- you will enjoy there.
Been here two times- the second time they made a mistake with my reservation and immedatley compensated us and figured out a solution.
If you get there say hey to Anna from me;)

Room Tip: Some rooms are facing a rather main street of Ushuaia. If you're not interested- let them know w...

We stayed at Cruz del Sur for 4 days in April. Yes it was busy as it's a popular hostel but we managed to get a dorm all to ourselves & thoroughly enjoyed being in a place where the kitchen & bathrooms were impeccably clean and where there was a separate lounge/common area for movies/ reading/ skype/ wifi etc with a no shoes rule. This meant that other parts of the hostel were quieter & not jam-packed with people shouting over skype all over the place.
The sisters who run the place run a tight ship & are super duper friendly, warm & welcoming.
Yes they may have some rules but that's what stops some hostels from just turning into a drunken college dorm.
Would highly recommend as a base for Ushuaia

This hostal is bustling with very helpful staff, who seem to spend most of their time cleaning, with good results! It has a great lounge room, however, the kitchen and dining space is a little too small for the number of guests and can seem over crowded at busy times. It seems like they have added extra beds into the already small dorm rooms, making the hostel feel quite cramped but this gives a fun vibe. The bathrooms are clean and showers excellent. The hostal is located close to the town centre.

This hostel was better than we thought initially. The staff (especially Ana) did an amazing job with their handwritten booking chart to keep all three of us in the same room (last minute reservation).The kitchen is quite small for all these people, but it worked out well. The breakfast was nice - very yummy fresh baguette! The rooms are way too small for all these people and their luggage, especially because there are some hikers in this area, but it was fine. They had a nice reading\TV room, very relaxing to hang out there. Wifi was ok and they had loads of books for exchange. We would return!

Cruz Del Sur is a very well orgenized hostel.
It is very clean and cozy - for example, shoes are not allowed in the dorms to avoid bad smell.
A bit crouded, but also makes you feel like home. Noises after midnight are not tolerated.
Great for everybody with a young mind!

This place pretty much runs like clockwork. It has to due to the high number of people moving through it's small hallways, rooms and kitchen. It's in a central, safe location with a code lock on the front door. The staff knows their stuff, are very helpful and keep the place running well. The chill room is a great place to use the wifi or take a nap. It's not really 24 hours as people sometimes sleep there. Nice swing in the garden to relax. If you need a place to crash for a night or two in Ushuaia, then this is a safe bet!

The staff at this hostel were very friendly and welcoming. The hostel was clean, and had a good communal lounge room with tv and decent wifi. The dorm rooms were quite small and cramped (at least the rooms downstairs were). All up the hostel was totally fine, but if I went back to Ushuaia I'd check out what else is around too.
