Stumbled into town tired after a long bus ride and were happy to find this place, less than 5 mins walk from the bus station. The cheapest accomodation we've had in Argentina so far for a private room and bathroom...Was a nice surprise as most other hostels online looked a lot more costly in Cafayete. Definitely not luxurious, the bathroom... More

I stayed at road runner during a festival. therefor it was packed. the owner even brought more beds to make more money. as there are more people and even a festival, it has to be cleaned more often. one morning the bath and toilet was full of blood, even in the kitchen you could find some drops. the hostel would...

Certainly it's rustic but it's easy to kick back here. There's luxury but the price is reasonable and it is very functional. They provide Wi-Fi and a "help yourself" breakfast, coffee/tea, bread, butter, jam. Fernando and Melanie will make you feel welcome and will provide pointers on good places for wine tasting and other activities. We had a double room... More

We had a lot of fun here but don't expect luxury. If you go with the flow and are willing to have a cheap and relaxed stay in Cafayate, this is your place. The rooms are basic yet sufficient. Shared bathroom could use a little cleaning. There is a nice garden with hammugs to chill in. There is no wifi... More

Road Runner is such a chilled and lovely place to stay. We had a basic yet comfortable room with private bathroom at a very fair price.

Don't bother staying here. It's cheap, but the rooms are dirty, bathrooms especially dirty, tiny kitchen and rude staff. Nice outdoor patio to hangout on, but that's about it. Also after sleeping in their beds for 2 nights My legs were covered in bug bites... There are better hostels in cafayate.
