We arrived at Esquel with no cash at 10p and no idea where to go. Planeta only takes cash and Banco Patagonia is the only bank that would give us money. We paid 600 something pesos for two in a private room with bunk beds. Works out to 46 USD for two. It was good, but more spendy than we...

I really enjoyed this hostel. The breakfast was really nice, the bathrooms were plentiful and the common area was also very good. The town of esquel is nice as well and definitely has a different vibe the the other stops along the route. The only negative was that the rooms were small.

The hostel has a few small dorm rooms and two (very) small doubles. It is clean and tidy but everythign feels a bit cramped, not least the toilets and showers! The kitchen is reasonably large and there is a courtyard area at the rear which is nice when the sun is out. The main problem with this place is that...

The place is comfortable, clean and secure. The new location is in plain center. Gus is really friendly and will pay close atention to your needs. The place has classy taste, with a wide and well equiped Kitchen. The only issue would be the closeness to club that makes some noise on frydays (wich is not intolerable but present) if...
