The first bad impression was the guy who checked us in. Since there was a problem with one of our credit cards he seemed more glad than helpful. The room was ok, the toilets and showers were not really good. Especially not for the price. The hostel has nice common rooms and is located in center which is good. During...

Nice place. One of the staffs was not so nice (afternoon) !! This staff had problems to charge the credit card and then asked to pay in cash. So, if they are unable to handle credit cards make that clear at the moment you book the place - the problem is that they have problems in their credit cards machines...

Booked this hostel last minute as we we required an unplanned additional night in El Calafate. The hostel is very big and had a lot of guests which really wasn't a problem. The have a big space for socialising or chilling out which I imagine is very nice if you've been on a hard day walking/hiking. As we only stayed...

Stayed for two nights. Arrived late the first night but was supported to book two tours directly in the hostel, starting the next day. Rooms with 4-bed-dorms are very nice, bathrooms clean ans with hot water. Breakfast sufficient for 50 pesos extra. Overall: very recommendable

Old but clean! Excellent infrastructure! Excellent shower! Very clean room! Excellent breakfast (not only the food, but also the personnel who works at the restaurant!!) Excellent price (value for money) Offers several tours at front desk! Straight forward but nice personnel! A special thanks to Claudio who took good care of us!

We stayed 3 nights in the Calafate Hostel in a private room in the hosteria (part of the hostel). We liked that they have a restaurant at the hostel where we did have breakfast and a dinner as well. The room #2 is including private bathroom and can be used as a triple room which gave us lots space. Location...

We booked a private double room with shower, the room was spacious, the house keeping lady came everyday for cleaning, very tidy! Staffs at reception were super friendly and helpful! Especially Patrick, he was very informative and nice! He's definitely the highlight of the hostel! There're wide range of tours that you may reserve, also some special deals if you...

Good location. Clean dorm room and beds. WiFi drops out and doesn't reach all areas of common room. Tight kitchen, no fridge space or labeling system. Shared bathroom shower cubicles are curtained off, but area to dry and dress is locker room style. Can pay with credit card. Staff unhelpful with anything competing to the tours they sell, nice staff...

I stayed here with my husband and toddler for 3 nights in a private double room. The hostel itself has a good kitchen and large communal area to eat / relax. We were surprised when housekeeping turned up with a travel cot for our son, which was unexpected but convenient. Only issues were the bed, which creaked so much that...

WARNING - DO NOT STAY HERE. This place is infested with bed bugs!! We stayed here in November and woke up to be covered in bed bug bites and bed bugs. The staff then moved us to another room where we found more bed bugs. My wife ended up with over 200 bites over her whole body and face. 2...
