Lovely place, best hostel I stayed in on this trip. Javi was very helpful, gives you a proper 'induction' session at arrival and explains everything you would usually have to ask - like trasport, hiking options, attractions etc. I find it a great value service. Atmosphere is very chilled, it's nice to come back after a long hike. Thank you!

As hostels go this is at the top of the list. The owners Nati & Havi are a young couple & have really put some effort into making the place welcoming & well equipped. It's out of the main town (absolutely no need to stay in Bariloche town) off the main road & really close to the transport links, supermarkets,... More

The staff at Alaska Hostel are welcoming and warm, the rooms are clean and cozy, the kitchen is beautiful and clean, and the location is quiet and central (not in the city or on a main road, but the bus is easily accessible). I highly recommend this hostel, it is the best one I´ve ever stayed in!

i spent about 10 days at the Alaska this year on my first ski trip to argentina. it couldnt have been more perfect. the culture of the hostel was awesome- in early september its a combination of skiers, climbers and the occasional wanderer. somewhat younger crowd that was always very social, but never too loud too late. the owners live...

Harvey and Nati bring you in like one of the family, everything you need for a cheep ski holiday is close by. Not in the middle of Bariloche downtown but close enough for a quick bus ride to get anything you need. Ski rental is easier up the mountain so no need to carry it on the bus. Showers were... More

I've stayed here twice and the next time I go to Bariloche I'll stay again!! If you travel to the area for skiing, hiking, or chilling in general, it's the perfect place to stay. For these reasons the location is great, and the location is not great only if you are looking for a "city" experience in Bariloche. The staff... More

I stayed here for about 5 weeks one winter and felt like I was a part of the family by the end of it! This place is excellent! Very very cozy, with cool views of Cerro Catedral from the front door. The hostel is a little bit out of town, but this just adds to the rustic feel of the... More

Nice people and big kitchen for cooking. Was not a party hostel, which we appreciated. Clean, but a little run-down in some areas, but hardly worth noticing. Best to stay in one of the upstairs rooms as the you hear everything from down below.

Had a great stay for a week at Alaska. The hostel has a really nice vibe as well as a great communal space and kitchen. The rooms aren't particularly fancy, but not much need to spend daylight hours there anyway as the communal areas are so good. The owners are great and give lots of really useful information when you... More

“Private double room is really small and same price as the dorm. I recommend the dorm as it has more light and room.”
 of 5 bubbles 330ivam, 13 Mar 2016 | Read review
“rooms downstairs are quieter, but a rowdy group should stay in the large suite on the main floor or the only other room on the main floor (6 bunk room in the corner)”
 of 5 bubbles brianm241, 19 Sep 2012 | Read review
“If you like dorm rooms, anything below the main floor is perfect. My favorite is the 6 bed room in the lower corner of the hostel.”
