I loved this hostel. It is fancy, fresh and sociable; at the same time it is sufficiently clean and organized. A good balance! We met nice people, slept well, douches are okay, and the staff is very very nice! The internet is excellent (fast and reliable)

We visited here on two separate occasions in February and we stayed in one of their private rooms which was very spacious and had its own kitchen. The shower water was nice and hot and had plenty of pressure. The hostel provides breakfast (coffee, toast, cornflake cereal, yogurt, etc) and has tea for you to enjoy throughout the day. If...

I had booked for 2 nights but stayed 1 night longer, because the people there were so nice. The staff is great, very warmhearted, helpful and fast. And I met great people during my stay. The house is beautiful, with a great terrasse and view on the lake. If I go back to El Calafate, I would stay there again!

Good staff - advised me to go to El Chalten although it meant spending less days in Keu Ken. I am honestly grateful for that advise, because I had such a great time in El-Chalten. Kitchen is OK. Very basic breakfast. Location :( Things that really bothered me: LOCATION IS AWFUL - The hostel is located higher than where the...

Hi!! It is such a pitty that you didn´t ask us well, about the locations of the supermarket and other places before your stay, and also we have the information on booking or hostelworld, etc. Yes we are in a dirty road but calafate is a young town and in patagonia!, you will find always a lot of dirty roads!....

The hostel is in a good location close to a large supermarket and about 15mins walk from the bus terminal. The property is nice, and the staff are excellent and very helpful. The breakfast is ok, bread, jam, corn flakes, tea/coffee. The common area is nice, but can get crowded when the hostel is busy. The kitchen is well equipped...

We initially booked 3 nights but ended up staying two weeks (having a break in the middle to El Charlten ) one reason being that this hostel is great and that we were treated like family.  We have travelled for 10 months and this is the cleanest, most organised and friendly hostel we have been in. Low season rates were...
