We had a very nice time in Alsaka, the staff is very friendly and helpful and you can relax all over the place. The kitchen is clean and so are the bathrooms, breakfast with home made bread and fresh coffee. Our room was way to small for all of us but at that moment there was nothing bigger free. The... More

We stayed here for 5 nights. As many have said the hostel is outside of the town centre on the road towards Llao Llao, personally we liked that as didnt particularly like the main centre and most of the activities are towards Llao Llao. We had a private room and it came with ensuite (and tv) and was very large... More

Hi, thanks for your comment, just want to be clear with one point, we have no fleas at the hostel neither the pets. Fleas are not common in Bariloche. The bits for shure were from bed bugs, they travel with people everywhere, and we can solve it after we got notice from any guest. To prevent this, we got a... More

I'm not sure I can add any new info to help you choose this spot other than to reinforce what's already been said. The breakfast is very good, the owners are sweethearts (as are their pets) and the communal spaces are spacious and inviting. This is a great location if your objective is good access to the lake or skiing.... More

The location is great, part of the way from Bariloche to Llao Llao. You will be spending all of your time on the peninsula,in the mountains or on the playas, all of which are easier to get to when you stay at Alaska. You are not missing anything by not staying in town, apart from a couple of nice restuarants... More

One word for this hostel, OUTSTANDING! The peace and tranquility of this excellently-run home away from home is exceptional. It's more like an escape to a large wooden cabin in the Alpines with your family and friends - the difference being that this costs a fraction of the price. The view of the snow-capped mountains is breathtaking and the lake... More

The guys who run this hostel are very friendly and helpful, they know a lot about hiking options in Bariloche. The room was clean, beds/mattresses are comfortable. The dorm (6 bed) is next to the kitchen and sitting area, it can get very noisy at night. The hostel is approx. 30 min away from the bus terminal and 20 min... More

“Private double room is really small and same price as the dorm. I recommend the dorm as it has more light and room.”
 of 5 bubbles 330ivam, 13 Mar 2016 | Read review
“rooms downstairs are quieter, but a rowdy group should stay in the large suite on the main floor or the only other room on the main floor (6 bunk room in the corner)”
 of 5 bubbles brianm241, 19 Sep 2012 | Read review
“If you like dorm rooms, anything below the main floor is perfect. My favorite is the 6 bed room in the lower corner of the hostel.”
