... the fantastic panoramic view but because of the great atmosphere, the well-trained and highly educated staff we spent three nights at the 1004. We enjoyed being their guests and felt warmly welcomed from the very beginning. We were happy to find a kitchen offering the most essential stuff and spices. Further, staff gave helpful advise on leisure activities, bus...

Definitely the hostel with the most signs. They have a system though and it works, our stay both times was pleasant and the staff efficient and friendly. They have a disco ball too. Fresh baked bread for breakfast cereal etc. Clean, hot water, best views. Stay here.

We arrived without a booking and they had no space for us for the following night, but still they offered to leave our bags while looking for another place, we could use their wifi and their bathrooms. We came back the next day and stayed for 2 nights. The whole place looks cosy with a great common area, a big...

We absolutely loved this hostel. It is centrally located, ideally for pubs and restaurants. The views are stunning, even from one of the bathrooms! We were made very welcome and they kindly stored our bags while we had a side trip. There were plenty of bathrooms, so we never had to wait and the kitchen and dining areas are well...

As a backpacker, I arrived in Bariloche by bus in the morning a little before regular check-in time, which was however no problem for the staff, as they directly assigned me a dorm, which had a breathtaking view just over the lake just as the rest of the hostel. The hostel is located in the penthouse flat of the highest...

One of the best hostels I've stayed in in 5 months. Really lovely staff who clearly love the hostel and what they do. They held a party for 19th birthday of the hostel and celebrate 2 consecutive years of 'best hostel in Argentina'. Great breakfast homemade bread with tea and coffee and good spreads. Ridiculously good view from the terrace-...

We stayed a couple of nights at this hostel and to be honest...it was amazing! The staff are very helpful, friendly and customer orientated! With the "living room atmosphere" it's hard not to feel home and enjoy the place - even when it's snowing outside...for the days you are staying you will be part of the family. The self made...

Up on the 10th floor this hostel has the most sunning views over lake and mountains. It's very relaxed and the staff are very friendly and helpful. We took 2 day trips - the Circito Chico bike ride around the lakes and the white water rafting at the border of Chile. Both incredible experiences recommended and booked by the hostel....

You can enjoy the scenery from every area of the house, including all bedrooms. We have dorms with 4,5,6 and 7 beds. As well 3 beautiful double rooms, two matrimonial and one with a twin option. All of the rooms are spacious and luminous! They have central heating and individual lockers.The large living room invites you to chill out on the comfortable couches after a long day of hiking. The size and the furnishing of the dining room make the perfect place for socializing with guests from all over the world. An eclectic selection of music helps to create the right atmosphere for each moment!The Penthouse 1004 was born due to the human quality and warmth of all its visitors. We don’t want to break this important spirit of friendship, that’s why we decided not to have a TV.
