It's a very solid option for El Calafate if you don't want to spend too much money for the night. We had a standard double room and were happy with that. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. I forgot my sunglasses and they kept them until I returned 5 days later. The breakfast is pretty standard except the...

Good hostel. But super big, no common area. It is more a usine than a friendly spot. But clean and private bathroom in the share room. The laundry is kinda expensive (150 pesos for a small bag). And kitchen is badly equipped, it is necessary to pay a deposit to get a set of cutlery, (ridiculous), every knife and material...

I think the hostel used to be a hotel so the rooms are quite nice with an ensuite. Heated floors are great too although the rooms could get a bit stuffy. Big kitchen. Staff is nice and helpful with any and all advice. Close to everything in the tiny town. Only bad things - first hostel I've seen in 2...

Helpful staff, clean, nice rooms. For aesthetic and comfort purposes this is a great place. The problem was the feeling of the place more than anything. Much more like a business, not a hostel. Being charged so much for washing, to rent silverware, and the fact that breakfast is NOT included yet not well advertised as not being included, and...

Although the rooms in this hostel are comfy and spacious, the feel of the business ruins it. Little things, like charging to use cutlery, give you a sense of what's it's like. We were completely ripped off by their glacier package, their tour is around four times the price of others in town and didn't even include everything it promises....

“They try to keep the traffic down at night because the rooms are not soundproofed. If you don't have much luggage, get a second floor room. First floor lodgers hear every footstep.”
