Helpful staff, clean, nice rooms. For aesthetic and comfort purposes this is a great place. The problem was the feeling of the place more than anything. Much more like a business, not a hostel. Being charged so much for washing, to rent silverware, and the fact that breakfast is NOT included yet not well advertised as not being included, and...

Although the rooms in this hostel are comfy and spacious, the feel of the business ruins it. Little things, like charging to use cutlery, give you a sense of what's it's like. We were completely ripped off by their glacier package, their tour is around four times the price of others in town and didn't even include everything it promises....

You reach it walking, and you can do everything from there. Nice place to stay. My private room was very comfortable. Kitchen and breakfast as at home. Please do pay attention, through which webpage you book, my friend found a room like mine cheaper.

We stayed in this hostel for a few nights twice in March. They have beds in dorm rooms, but we stayed in private double rooms. The rooms have an unusual design, with the sink in the room rather than bathroom. The rooms are very comfortable, the only issue we had is that they have heated floor which cannot be regulated...

Good place to party. They allow loud music and parties in the rooms late at night. I asked reception if they had any noise rules and was told no but that they would ask the people to quiet down.

The cleanliness of the rooms, the appropriate level of furniture, the kindness of the hosts and the location make of this place a good one where to stay in El Calafate. The laundry service is really a plus for the travelers who don't necessary have time to care about that.

“They try to keep the traffic down at night because the rooms are not soundproofed. If you don't have much luggage, get a second floor room. First floor lodgers hear every footstep.”
