A very warm, cosy and hospitable hostel. All staff were very lovely and helpful (including Pablo, Tommi, Frank, Sebastian and Juan). Beds were comfortable and everything was kept clean. Breakfast was great, fresh bread every morning, with the best Dulce de Leche. This hostel has a great atmosphere and staff really do go out of their way to ensure you...

If you have any doubt where to stay at Bariloche - this is the place, Best Atmosphere, great stuff... And my recommendation is to ask for the barbecue. I've been travelling a lot and this one is one of my favorite!

I stayed at the hostel for 4 nights and found that the place certainly lived up to its reputation. To begin with, it's well located right near the centre of town to be convenient but also benefits from a quiet location away from the bars. The rooms are reasonably sized and the mattresses are extremely comfortable by hostel standards. The...

I stayed there 8 days in total, and its so far the best hostel I have been to in Argentina! Achalay is walking distance from everything in Bariloche center. The service is excellent and the best is the atmosphere. You wouldn't want to miss the Asado the owner Pablo makes 1-2 times a week. And he gladly show you how...

We had the best time! The staff was grate, friendly and fun. Pablo the owner was wonderful, patient to all of our questions. He makes home made bread every day for breakfast, home made jam, and gets the best dolce de leche! Clean, cozy, grate vibe, grate kitchen - everything! Stay here!

The breakfast you get at Achalay's is probably one of the best you can get in a hostel in Bariloche with homemade bread and jam! And you can sleep in and will still get breakfast! The owners are extremely helpful and amiable people who provide you with all the information and help you need. If you are staying or working...

We stayed in 'The Doors' private double ensuite room - was a great room, but did get very hot! We had the fan going constantly to try and cool the room down. Location is close to the main square, but hostel is quiet at night as it's on a little side street. We enjoyed the breakfast, especially the homemade bread...

I stayed at Achalay Hostel for four nights and enjoyed the hostel immensely. Its breakfast rates a 7 on my 10-point scale for healthy, nutritious breakfasts with its fresh red apples, daily homemade bread and percolated coffee and great selection of tea (adding some more varieties of fruit -- bananas, mandarin oranges, etc. -- would make the breakfast even more...

Achalay hostel is very nice. The location is good, pretty much in the center of Bariloche. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The dorms and bathrooms are clean. The atmosphere is great. Probably one of my favourite hostels I´ve ever been in, and definetely a great place to stay in Bariloche.
