If you are looking for a simple, yet well kept and well located place to stay, you found it. I had a private room with private bathroom , was exactly as shown in the picture. Had a TV and ceiling fan. Wifi worked. Breakfast was open ahead of schedule (basic). Always friendly and helpful staff in the lobby and with a nice communal room. They have dorms as well. A nice place to stay.
Loved this hostel, stayed for 4 nights. The location is close to everything you need in walking distance. The staff were great and very helpful. The rooms were cleaned every day, however no AC, only a fan which was difficult on a hot evening. Breakfast was included, which was bread for toast and cornflakes and hot drinks. The atmosphere was good and relaxed, several families stayed there, however we still made friends with other backpackers. I would recommend this hostel and would stay again.
The hostel has a nice atmosphere - common places have nice furniture and decor, they make it look cozy. Our bedroom was very simple and it was okay for one night (we felt cold during the night, but we don't know if it was a problem with the hostel or with our skills dealing with calefaction). El Gualicho's localization is great...it's really close to the shore and interesting businesses. You can arrange everything you need in the neighborhood. The breakfast was the worst of our trip so far - it had only a few options (bread and crackers, jam, butter, tea and coffee). Staff was okay - some members were not really into taking to people/being super gentle. The hostel has a free parking lot and wifi is great. In case you're a foreigner, please bring printed copies of your passport so you can be exempted on the IVA (tax) and pay a little less. …
Great place close to the sea and the bus station. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Rooms were spacious. Even with a packed room you still had enough space to move around. Bathroom was clean. The tours they offer for Peninsula Valdes and whale watching in Puerto piramides although expensive (around 3000 pesos plus 500 for the entrance to the peninsula) are absolutely amazing and one of the highlights of my Patagonia trip
I stayed there with my two young children (8 & 11). Overall the place was fine but lacked the warmth and energy that I seek in a hostel, perhaps because it seemed empty. Our room was good with a double bed and a bunk bed, and a decent bathroom. Internet worked well, even in our room. Staff were pleasant without investing much. The common room could have been good with more people. The breakfast was the worst of our long trip.
