Reviewed December 27, 2012

The location was perfect, close enough to the bus station, easy walking to everything in town. Friendly and knowledgeable receptionists. The room was spacious with a comfortable bed, cozy comforter, plenty of places to put things and good wifi. The dining area was pleasant and the breakfast plentiful. They even had some breakfast items available a little earlier than scheduled which was very helpful as we left on excursions rather early. We were very glad were persisted on getting a room here when one was not available when we first tried to book.

Ushuaia is not really famous for the quality of their hotels. Nevertheless the quality of this stay was really good. I had a big, clean room with all necessary stuff that is needed. Breakfast and Services (Wireless etc.) were quite good.

Pluspoint for the helpful staff - they really tried to make me feel home.

We were very happy with our choice of the Hotel Austral. Its a very friendly, family-run hotel. The room was large and clean with a good, comfortable bed. The daily breakfast was great and the owners were very helpful in providing advice as well as making reservations at restaurants in the city. I'd definitely recommend it.

A simple, no-frills place. It may seem overpriced, but so are all hotels in Ushuaia. The weak points are the breakfast and the wall’s poor acoustic insulation – which was not a big problem, since the place is not particularly noisy. Provided the minimum comforts I need in a ski trip: a good shower, decent heating and a comfortable bed. The room I stayed in was quite spacious, equipped with a safe and a flat-screen TV. A family-run business, with a very solicitous staff. If you are not looking for a fancy hotel, Austral is for sure a good choice.

PROS:
The hotel is pretty simply decorated- outside, lobby and inside, but you're mainly in Ushuaia for the tours/experience and not the hotel itself! Room was clean and hotel is close to Ave San Martin (main street) so it's pretty convenient. It's 2 blocks to the main street where all the stores/restaurants are (downhill to get to the main street, uphill on the way back). It's about 6 blocks from the Tourist Pier where all the tours leave from so easy to walk everywhere.

CONS:
Walls are pretty thin so you can hear your neighbors/those walking in the hallway.
Not fancy, but OK- I would describe it as humble.

We stayed a couple nights at the Austral and I have to say I'd come back if I were in town, therefore also recommend it to anyone seeking for a good and unexpensive place to stay at. As usual, fund ut about this place via Tripadvisor, because not too many people knew about it when I asked for references.

Facundo and his wife (the owners) were very helpful and always gave us great advice on the activities, transportation, tours... The helped us with the cabs whenever we needed, too.
The location is also good, just a couple blocks from the main street and minutes away from the marina, most restaurants and shops. Though one of the blocks is quite steep, the walk is great and not difficult.

The rooms are spacious and the sleep quality very good, too. That's very important and it was a nice thing to hav during our stay.

Breakfast was not the best, but it was good enough to get a good start. keep in mind Ushuaia is really far, so havn fresh fruits to make it better, at all times, is a bit difficult. That's the only thing I missed from other hotels, but not a big deal.
Would recommend this place!!!

Room Tip: I guess all of them are quite good and about the same.
