4 of us stayed two nights in two doubles with private bathroom. Our building housed the dining room and a sitting room which we had mostly to ourselves. Everything was clean, comfortable, even private and quiet. The buildings are lovely, painted in bright colors with lots of flowers. The staff is very friendly and breakfast was nice too. Located a...

We stayed in the rooms with private bathroom of this very friendly hostel. Mariano, the guy who stayed in the afternoon/night is very very helpful and friendly. The price was fine. The shared room and the bathroom was very clean and confortable. And it is located near to the city center and bus station. We really liked!

We stayed for one night. Nice location one block from bus station and next door to a bakery. we stayed in a private room across the road. The room barely had room for the bed and that was it and our room was a bit run down. I think next time we would try to stay somewhere else just to... More

Nice and quiet private rooms with decent very basic breakfast. Recommended only if you take a private room, as the dorm area looked rough. Note that the social factor is very low for the private rooms, however, because they're across the street from the dorm rooms. If you want to meet people, which I missed being able to do, better...

cosy, well-located little hostel, nice communal area, good kitchen, decent basic breakfast. Dorm rooms are very small but there is separate storage space, and the big atmosphere makes up for the small space. Mariano is super sympatico and incredibly helpful, and will go out of his way to help you make the most of your stay.

We spent 2 nights in the Lago Argentino Hostel. The place feels more like a little posada. The common areas and the rooms are very well decorated and cleaned. They have a backyard with grass and flowers. Rooms have many blanquet, several shelves to stores and central heating. When I take a shower, I had troubles with the temperature of... More

I stayed here 2 nights while travelling north from Ushuaia to Santiago. I picked it by chance from a list given to me at the bus station. It's close to the bus station and town centre. Friendly, English speaking staff, reasonable rates, clean rooms....highly recommended. Peter Schindler UK
