We stayed at Alba's house in early February for 4 nights and enjoyed our time there. The room was warm and comfortable. Alba was happy to share advice on places to shop and eat. The B&B is located in a quiet neighbourhood with an easy 15-20 minute walk to the downtown area.

For my 2nd time in Ushuaia, I stayed at Alba's house and had a wonderful stay. It is a nice home located in a quiet neighborhood, a 20min walk from the center. My room was clean and very comfortable. The breakfast was also nice (bread, jam, coffee, juice). Alba is such a warm person, and she wants to ensure you... More

We stayed here two nights and Alba was super helpful with organizing things and calling people for us. The rooms are nice and warm, really clean, and the place is quiet. It is about a 30 min walk to town but taxis from there are cheap and fast. The price was good, breakfast was alright and I would definitely stay... More

We stayed at Alba's House for 3 nights. We chose it because it was the cheapest option we could find, although it is still not cheap at all, but that's just Patagonia! The house has a different sign on the wall which may confuse at first, it reads casa de dios. It's a good 20 min walk to the centre... More

Alba's House is a quiet and nice place to stay, only 25min walk from downtown. Alba herself is a very friendly and helpful host, she'll organize everything you want. Everything clean and cosy and a good breakfast.

Everything about Alba's is humble. We rented a small room with a bed and a table. A shower was in the room as well. There's nothing fancy here but it was colorful, clean and quiet. The breakfast is humble as well but enough to get you started for the day. You will save a lot of money here that you... More

The rooms and the bathrooms (shared) are very clean! Breakfast is limited to what you find on the table. The only "unlimited" thing was instant coffee. We didn't ask for more because we did not dare: the owner seemed difficult to approach. Although, on the last evening she was really forthcoming organized a taxi for the next morning incl. insisting... More

My husband and I stayed here for a couple of days waiting for a cruise to Antarctica. The room was clean and nice. Wifi did not work in the room. There is no lounge area or sofa to sit on so if you want to relax, you have to sit on your bed or sit in the dinning room. Breakfast... More

This casa (this place is not a hostel, owner says so!) is located 20-30 minutes walk from the center. Really close to a big supermarket but everything else is min. 10 minutes walk away. If you want some tourist attaction this is not your place. Price is not cheap but not expensive either, somewhere in the middle compared to prices... More

Miss Alba is very atencious. When we came, she explained us about the city, the weather, etc. She gave us a map pointing for us supermarket, restaurants and some points that would interest us. The room is very simple, bathroom ensuite. The cleanliness is poor inside the bathroom. The B&B is not central, it´s about 10 to 15 minut walking... More
