I stayed here for 3 nights and everything was fine. I stayed in a four bed dorm which was clean and tidy and the beds were comfy, although if you were on the top bunk the arrangement was too close making it a bit difficult to climb up. The room had a bathroom with shower, which worked fine, if a...

what more could you ask for!? I thought heated floor was the best idea ever for a hostel, you come out from the hot shower and the floor is heated and warm to touch, it's an amazing feeling! Breakfast is also great (cereals, raw eggs you can cook by yourself, milk, yogurt, tea/coffee/juices, breads, cakes, butters, jams, dulce de leche)....

It is a great place and I would recommend it however there are few cons that I would share Pro: - great view - great atmosphere - clean - helpful staff - lovely living room to eat, chat and drink Cons: - the door of our corridor made big noise and it did not close very well. As result we...

This place is a well oiled machine and they know what travellers want. It's well managed, abundant communal areas, very clean, great kitchen, great breakfast ( by Argentinian standards) and helpful staff. The issue I had was it felt like being on a cruise ship. Organised entertainment (dancers) every night, large buffet style dinners (350 peso pp) and loud and...

We stayed here before and after a visit to Torres del Paine and really enjoyed it. It is a nice quite hostel with travellers of all ages. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable and made our trip that much easier. It has an awesome common area/bar/restaurant where you can relax, socialise and watch the sunset - some of the...

This was one of my favourite hostels. The atmosphere was lovely and very chilled out. They had a good bar menu (food and drink), which was reasonably priced. Although the rooms were quite expensive (as is everything in Patagonia), I had a lovely experience. The staff were extremely kind and very helpful. Upon arrival, the staff told us to not...

NEGATIVE: I made a booking for 2 nights and changed the booking a couple of times through Booking.com. I send them a message the day before to inform of a late arrival (1 day late) but I got confused was the dates. When I realized my mistake, I send them another message and asked them to ignore my first message...

It was love at first sight and i went back there three time during my journey in Patagonia (back from el chalten to go to TDP and back from there to fly from the airport). The staff is the best you can find, you feel like home. The shared areas are extremely cool, you would never leave the place and...

Nice ambiance. Very friendly and helpful staff. Most speak very good English, great for the gringos. I got help planning my trips, including finding the only bus that goes sometimes to Lago Roca. Also a lot of options to book trips directly from the hostel such as the glacier trips. The optional BBQ buffet dinner at nights is not free...
