When we initially turned up we were given a rather curt welcome by Kiki, but she soon found us to apologize and ended up spending a couple of hours telling us where to go and what to see before inviting us out on the town with her friends. We were initially going to check out after one night but as...

Lovely view does not make up for the huge numbers of staff that take over communal areas & kitchen. Could barely cook dinner & if you leave food in fridge leave a very clear typed label as they throw everything out! Not at all comfortable,rooms good but kitchen under equipped and dirty

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed staying in Patanuk, because of the great value room (double ensuite), good vibe, nice communal area and stunning views over the lake. The only complaint we had was that it was a bit noisy in the room. Overall, we really recommend this hostel.

The staff was exceptionally helpful and knowledgable. They helped us to organize everything from trips to rental cars and bus tickets. Patanuk is located a little bit away from the main square and main shopping street, which you can reach within 5-10 minutes by foot. Instead it has a wonderful location directly at the lake with a wonderful view from...

Patanuk Hostel and Bar is set quite perfectly on a hill overlooking the breath taking Lake Nahuel Huapi. The common area has a great view of it all - lake, mountains, big, blue sky. There is something surreal about eating a breakfast of toast with dulce de leche while looking out the window. Three dogs roam the property, which is...

I attempted for more than a week to make a reservation with this hostel. The information they provided on hostelbookers and hostelworld was inaccurate, so I couldn't book through an outside site. When I inquired with the staff directly, they gave me contradictory information. They then told me that instead of the 10% percent deposit (which is very difficult and...

Our stay at Patanuk was lovely. The double rooms are simple and clean and sheets are changed regularly. The hosts are incredibly helpful, laid back and friendly, as were the dogs! The views from the airy dining room / lounge are spectacular. The lake laps onto the pebbled beach just a few steps down from the cool hostel bar. Breakfasts...

Nice hostel, great location, gorgeous stunning views from the common area. We had a private double, which was nice and spacious, though smelled pretty dank and a bit mildewey (my wife couldn't sleep), and since the window looked right onto the stairwell in the front, we couldn't leave it open. (For this reason we chose not to stay here when...

Located 5 min:s walk from thebu s stop and at the lake side, this hostel offers great views and a truly friendly feeling. Rooms are rather few, but there are several dorms. The place is tidy, and the staff is kind and bi- or trilingual. They are helpful in arranging trips, pointing out directions or just in general. The Wifi...

... hostel room was the dirtiest I've been - we were 3 friends in a 4-bed room. Old furniture and windows, very dirty duvets with white stains (!), incredibly noisy and kind of spooky during the night due to strong wind and rain. Bathroom flash was half broken and the whole room was smelling of toilet drains REALLY badly. Had...

“If you want to splurge, there are two apartments upstairs. The front apt. Has the lake view. Both are roomy and comfortable street side apt is a little noisy from street traffic, but if you sleep with the window open , the lake will provide a restful rhythm of waves to lull you.”
