Very good quality of wifi, comfortable social "living" room and bedrooms. The staff was amazing! As I speak only absolute basic Spanish and had some issues with flight booking, the...

We stayed here for two nights. The hostel has two parts, with one building on each side of the road. We stayed in the building opposite the main one, with bigger, en-suite rooms. Although these rooms are more expensive, I would recommend this as the rooms with shared bathrooms were much smaller and more basic - like a row of...

The wifi was fast, the kitchen was large and well stocked with dishes and pans to eat and cook. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean! I can't imagine needing anything more for a budget hostel! Well done!

We chose it because it is close to the bus station! We stayed in the room with private bathroom which is more comfortable with breakfast. It is a nice place although the rooms are small. We cooked in the kitchen and it was very practical

Hostel located in centre of town close to bus station. We booked a double with private bathroom which is set in well kept gardens with comfortable bed and shelf and hanging space for clothes. Breakfast was cereal, home made bread to toast and a croissant. Exceptionally clean, excellent WIFI and lovely owners. Would recommend

Staff particularly Stella very friendly and helpful. Room was clean,bed comfortable but very little space for luggage. Breakfast included "Argentinian Continental breakfast" that is a croissant,cold cereal ,tea or coffee. Plus - walking distance to center of town

Had a stop over in El Calafate for the glacier. One night here in the twin room at the end of the corridor (room 4 from memory) thus stepping distance to the garden. Nice surroundings, clean rooms and average breakfast. Convenient location to bus station meant not lugging bags around town. Served its purpose well at a reasonable rate.

Thank Graham P
