The staff were awesome. They remember your name and are very friendly abd helpful. They have plenty of info about stuff to do our where you can go too. It is a hostel not a hotel but for a hostel 100% recommend it!
The WiFi wad not great. Sometimes when there was no one around it was good but in the evenings it was pretty rubbish
They had computers with internet to combat the lack of a work Wifi connection. Had good breakfast options and plenty to eat.
Wifi would not work.
Helpful staff and good social area.
- Firm mattress, very important to me! - Shower, Sink and Toilet all separate - Friendly staff. Francisco gave us a great info of the town - Kitchen open to all to use 24x7
- About 10+ mins from bus station (a little far if you are carrying a lot). Also, have to hike up a semi-steep road in order to get there. Be prepared. - Hot water is a bit weak
Staff was very friendly and helpful.
Its not a cheap Hostel so I expected a better breakfast but it wasn't good. Internet seems to work only early morning.
staff were amazingly helpful!
Very cozy friendly environ with helpful staff and reasonable rate.
comfortable beds relaxed atmospherei good music good breakfast
we booked 2 nights in advance via internet and then extended our stay in the hostel face to face....after the 2 nights (we had to wake up very early because of the glacier tour and came back to the hostel in the evening) they just took our stuff and said we have to check out...one of my sweatshirts got lost and we realized many guests had the same problems with their bookings - they had to change the dorm after one night or had to leave (or like us: to sleep in the common room upstairs)
Price Size of room Nice and open living area
A bit distant from city centre Not the best of facilities Very small washrooms
staff, the view is awesome, good breakfast
wifi didnt always work in the evening, a lack of places to chill
Friendly check-in staff
Run down, old room & facilities and stained bedding.
- Nice location and view - The little cabin was comfortable - Staff helpful and nice at first glance - Possibility to cook diner
- Warning ! we had trouble with the staff about an activity (the Big Ice) they sold us without properly telling us the conditions in order to be able to do the tour (medical). As a result my boyfriend was prevented to go on the tour on the glacier (just because he had a surgery a few years back), and though they were responsible for not properly detailing the conditions when selling the tour, America del Sur refused to refund the (high!) price of the tour in total. Very dishonest behaviour. If they want to sell excursions and tours, they should do it properly... - Double bed in the cabin wasn't good - Heating broken in the bedroom, very hard to light on - Very pricey for a hostel
Super friendly and helpful staff, helped to organize trips to P. Moreno and bus to El Chalten. Everything is very well organized, Nice view
A bit too expensive, Shower almost without pressure, difficult to take a shower
Good atmosphere, nice common areas with view. Decent dorms and bathrooms, everything clean. GREAT friendly staff, informal reception, very helpful with tour arrangements and general advice. This is what a hostel should look like.
Dorms could be a bit larger, with more space for backpacks and stuff.
Great helpful and knowledgeable staff. Fantastic facilities and ridiculously clean.
Great hostel, friendly helpful staff and beautiful views across the lake. Short walk uphill away from the Main Street, but not too far and provides for a gorgeous location.
Staff were superb helpful friendly enthusiastic Excellent breakfast Wonderful communal area huge windows great views
Inexpensive tour arrangements can be made at the hostel
Washroom door was broken, they don't provide soap
Nice view, good breakfast. Helpful staff.
Not a very social hostel. Poor internet.
Cleanliness Bedroom size Air temperature too high
The views from the huge window were amazing. The heated floors were nice. Breakfast was decent. We ended up getting a cabin where one couple stayed upstairs and we were downstairs, so we had a bathroom, kitchen and living room we shared with only one other couple.
The heater in the room was toasty - a little too toasty! We had it on the lowest setting and were burning up. So we turned it off for a while and then it wouldn't turn back on so we kinda froze at night. The wifi didn't reach the cabin either so we had to go to the main building to use it. The location is a bit of a hike away from the main part of the city as well.
the staff is very friendly and helpfull. Beds are good, rooms/bathrooms are clean. Hostel is well-located, about 5 minutes walking from down-town El Calafate where you will find supermarkets, restaurants, shops, excursion agencies, etc. Breakfast has a decent offering. Staff is helpfull with arranging tours, and getting your laundry done for you.
The Wifi connection is bad, both in the lobby as in the room. Although breakfast has a decent offering I had the bad luck of getting a small bout of diarrhea 2 days in a row after having eaten breakfast there.
The view from the hostel is great and the common area is quite spacious. Each room has own bathroom; Great water pressure and hot water all the time! And coz the floor is heated, the waters dry out very fast and whole room remained clean.
We saw a few bed bugs next to our beds (we stayed at the dorm), thought luckily did not get bit, but I think their blanket definitely need to be washed. Also, wince it is a large hostel hosting lost of traveller, the wifi is very slow. During morning, dinner hours and when everyone returned at night, you might not even connected to the wifi, or takes 5 mins to load a google search result! We can hardly make any research and plan for the next destination.
staff best place for backpackers
Organised trips, staff were nice, luggage room.
Rooms were quite hot.
