“Good hostel choice in Ushuaia”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

Stayed here for 2 nights in December 2012. The hostel is located on the eastern end of the center of Ushuaia, but it's still within walking distance to everything that's of interest to a tourist.

The dorm rooms (mine has 8 beds) are pretty standard, not much to say about them.

The common areas a great: large, cozy, a big kitchen, and they even have some free food for breakfast there. Everything else you can just get at the La Anonima round the corner.

I didn't like the layout too much: it was a pretty long walk from the room to the restrooms, for example: outdoor corridor, into the main building, down the stair, down the corridor. No biggie, but could be better.

Anyway, this is a very good choice in Ushuaia, definitely recommended.

We stayed at this hostal for 3 nights and for the most part enjoyed our time. It's clean and has a very nice common area, very good for meeting people. The kitchen is big and fully equipped. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast you get an egg!
What we didn't like very much was the bathrooms being so far away from the rooms. You have to walk outside then through the kitchen down the stairs through the common area/bar area and down a hallway to get to them which sucks when you have to pee at 3 am. It would have been nice to at least have a toilet and sink upstairs.
Everything else was great though and I would strongly recommend this hostal.

First thing that I liked best was the heated floor in the room. We stayed in a double and it was attached to the main house. The room was big enough for our mess but the bathroom was inside the house what means that if we wanted to go to the toilet quickly we would have to put all our clothes, jackets, in order to not freeze to death under the snow falling down. Besides this little thing, everything was perfect. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the kitchen is well-equipped, living room warm and cozy and free internet. By the way, they have a nice breakfast and the price was okay.

Room Tip: Get a double! Big bed, huge room, very quiet area and heated floor.

When you get to this hostel, you get a very warm welcome, staff is really eager to give you all the information you need and tries to help you with all your questions.
Rooms are really spacious, as are the lockers. There is floor heating, which is from time to time a touch too much, as it is not adjustable for your room, but that was more cause I was staying there beginning of spring, while the weather was still changing.
Well equipped kitchen, which is rare for an Argentinian hostel. All you can eat breakfast, also an unicum around there!
Free batch of laundry when you book with hostel world!

This hostel has it all - really friendly and helpful staff (thank you Emma and Gabriel for going out of your way to help us with a couple of things), a great common area, bar and a really big loft kitchen which all encourage you to socialise and meet people. The breakfast is one of the best I´ve seen with fresh eggs and freshly baked baguettes, good coffee (!!) and juices etc. The rooms are big and warm and beds comfortable. The shared bathrooms were good and the showers were always hot no matter what time of day. Yes, you need to walk outside to get to the bathrooms which I was a bit nervous about, but it is not far and wasn´t a problem. The only issue was the one computer, free to use but very very slow. However as there´s free wifi in the common area you may never need to use it. Overall we had an excellent stay and were very sad to leave. We hope to come back again some time!

Room Tip: They only list one private room on hostelworld.com so if it looks like it´s booked out, it´s best to...

There are a few things that make this hostel really great: the staff are really friendly and helpful, the place is kept really clean, the common area and bar encourages getting to know people but above all the breakfast is fantastic. They leave the breakfast food there until around 12 and you can get bread, tea, coffee or eggs at any time of the day. Great when you´re on a budget. Great value hostel and the best place to stay in Ushuaia.

This hostel was fantastic from the moment we walked in. The service was friendly and genuine, it was clean, big and well maintained and breakfast was great (fresh eggs) you get a free towel they can wash every day and a free load of washing if you book through hostel world. The kitchen was large and well equipped (2 cleaning and cooking spaces) that overlook a general common room downstairs. We had the most amazing time, rooms were quite and common areas encourage getting to know other travelers.

Would definitely stay again. Only downside is that no other hostel is measuring up -- thanks heaps Emma, Gabriel, marina and housekeeping!
