Clean and comfy. Owner was helpful and speaks very basic English. Nice atmosphere. Did not get to use the kitchen, but seems spacious and equiped. Bathrooms clean and comfortable. Located 5 minutes from bus terminal. Breakfast was standard. Recommended, definitely

This Hostel is situated near the main Plaza,parking is available in the street and it is well marked. Our room was clean,with a private bathroom,towels supplied. However,they could find no soap anywhere. I would rather recommend this Hostel for Backpacers and young solo travellers. Breakfast was standard Argentina-stile. The overall feeling was that of relaxing,go with the flow,but nothing outstanding.

Just a half a block from the square and three or four from both bus terminals. Inner courtyard is pleasant but doesn't get a ton of sun. Kitchen is small but functional if you're the only one cooking. Wifi is good. Staff are pleasant and it's all very clean.

This hostel offers a good service for a fair price. Although I would recommend it for the summer time because everything is opened and we were cold at night. Our overall experience was positive and I would definitely recommend that place in Cafayate.

The guy at the reception was not really nice, he was having a barbecue with his friends at night, when we asked if he could stopped the music so that we could sleep he said something like "yeah in a bit"! That is very unprofessional to say the least. In the morning the water was cold, I had to ask...

Stayed here in December 2013, we hadn't booked. The owners were really helpful and gave us a choice of rooms. We had a double en suite with the biggest bed I have ever seen. Lovely view from the window of mountains beyond. Breakfast standard but plentiful. Bikes available to hire which were in good order. Ruta 40 is in a...

For the price ok. The 8 bed dorm was really dark, had not so much space and just 1 bathroom. The patio was ok, the roof terrace not very inviting, with trash. Breakfast included, the usual bread, dulce de leche, jam, but with cereals. Staff just speaking spanish.

The place is very pretty, colorful. It's so nice to spend time in the patio, and meet other travelers, the kitchen gives the envy to cook, clean and bright. We are welcomed like in our family. The two guys are always there to help you and provide good advices for the excursions. The location is perfect. Tout est parfait!
