La Posta Hostel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 28, 2014

If you prefer the best price quality relation ever over being distant from downtown La Posta is your hostel. Incredible friendly owners and staff, very very very clean, we'll organized, nice common areas, OK breakfast, comfortable beds, cooking facilities. In La Posta you'll meet travellers going to almost everywhere around Tierra del Fuego, Patagonia or Antartica. Excellent place to start your travels.

This hostel is just fantastic, we arrived after the long journey from El Calafate in the taxi and even from outside it looked clean, inside the owners (A lovely family) could not be more helpful. The room was clean, the bed very comfortable and the two kitchens well equipped. Cooking dinner on two nights here was a dream, coming back after a day of trekking felt like we were coming home... We specifically requested a double room, as a same sex couple and were treated like any other couple.

I really like this hostel , it feels really familiar , the owner are great people , thanks to Lucas !! Great guy and always trying to help you.
The hostel is very clean, and cossy , quite far , but the walk to the center is beautiful , and also if you want to pay a taxi is not to expensive like 2.5 dls. So is a very good place.
Recommendable

Location is such a pity, as if you are staying more than two days the trip back and forth from town can be arduous after awhile. Huge place, no couches to relax just tables and chairs. Very basic breakfast, not even milk only the powered stuff which is disappointing - good to have media lunas though, some fruit would be good perhaps?

Hostel very clean, having access to a laundry dream come true

Very friendly and polite at the reception.
For the breakfast they had the best croissants I ever had so far!!! Negative: very far from the town. Taxi about 30 pesos. They were quite busy when I arrived and haven't showed or explained me something.

This hostel is pretty excellent. I stayed in a 4 bedroom dorm, and there were 4 individual beds! No bunks!! What a delight. My dorm had a good sized ensuite, but there were also good shared bathrooms available. The hostel looks like it is two houses, converted into one. This is great, as there are two kitchens, and two dining spaces. As a result, the common areas didn't ever feel crowded. The beds were super comfy and they get made up for you every day, and the kitchen was fairly well equipped. The breakfast was standard - bread and jam, and the best croissants I have had in South America so far. So buttery. There is a small mini mart a few houses up. It has some pretty good looking baked goods, and basics like water, pasta etc. It is a bit of a walk to the nearest large supermarket. When you check in, they give you a map, showing where all the supermarkets are in town. I thought that was pretty handy. The down side is the location. It is located 3km from the airport (about 40 pesos) and 3km from the town centre. There are really decent footpaths all the way to town, and to the airport. So, on one hand, good way to work off a bite of one of those croissants, however on the other hand, a bit of an inconvenience if you have an early bus out of town. However - I am staying at the Antarctica Hostel in Ushuaia as I write this, and I would definitely recommend La Posta Hostel over Antarctica Hostel, even with the out of the way location.

Great staff, will help you with anything you require, even a taxi for 5 in the morning to catch your bus! Small mini market a couple of doors up. Walk into the middle of town will take about 15 minutes at a good pace, but as we are keen walkers that was no problem for us. Rooms serviced every day with clean towels every other day, but clean ones will be provided on request if required more often. Met some great people staying there at the same time. Great communal shower area with loads of hot water, almost like a power shower :-)

Nothing really, as a mature couple we would have liked a private bathroom, but we knew we had to share when booking so no problem.
