Reviewed February 5, 2013

Antarctica Hostel suprice me very much. Very heplful stuff, large common area for relaxing and big kitchen. Dorms quite clean with flor heating - but very long way to bathroom. Very hot wather in baths - be careful :)
Located in good area, close to the main street.

Friendly staff, nice common space but relatively noisy. High prise compared to quality, but then Ushuaia is expensive. Fantastic city with plenty of hiking and life. Main street have many sports affairs with heaps of outdoor equipment.

Could not have asked for a better hostel after being a but disappointed with freestyle hostel which came well recommended. Very clean, open, airy helpful and laid back. Great firm comfy beds, amazing kitchen with an oven, big breakfast spread, a free food shelf (which people used fairly and good vibes that if you use something that generally you would leave something) ensuring the next person follows can follow this good karma system. All staff super friendly and maintain the hostel everyday. We even baked a cake with left over ingredients! Only downside is bathrooms are downstairs and dorms are upstairs but this is not a real complaint. Toilets are super clean and showers are fantastic. Will be staying here again before heading to antarctica!

The staff at the hostel were extremely helpful! The laundry service was good and cheap. There was hot water in the showers and the beds were clean. The lounge was cozy and the breakfast was good with fresh bread, make your own eggs, juice, and cereal. The location is also fantastic!

Stayed at the Antarctica Hostel in December and really enjoyed our stay. Really helpful stay, nice warm rooms and great communal areas, especially the bar / chill out room. Great breakfast with fresh bread too. Highly recommend that if you are going to the end of the world, stay at the Antarctica Hostel :)

Room Tip: Dorms all have heated floors; lovely and warm

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.
