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...

What a fantastic hostel!! Great value for money, with beautiful views especially from the communal areas, super friendly and helpful staff and close proximity to the centre of town. The hostel can help you with anything, they can book all the bus transfers and excursions if you need them too. Thank you to the America del Sur team for making...

Probably one of the best hostels I stayed at during my 2 months in Argentina. Super helpful and friendly staff, clean dorm rooms with ensuite bathrooms and always hot showers, walking distance of main street and supermarket. It is the communal space and lake view that really sets the hostel apart, easy to meet other travellers when solo and breakfast...

America del Sur has a great team, that makes you fell welcomed even before you arrive, with information and tips sent by e-mail. After arriving, when I asked for information about bus tickets to/from El Chalten they went beyond and bought it straight from the agencies for me. I stayed at a private room that felt just like a hotel...

Probably the best hostel I've ever stayed at. Warm, light, with stunning views over the lake and mountains, I loved my time here. It's incredibly easy to organise a trip to the Perito Moreno glacier from the hostel directly, and equally easy to spend a day chilling in the big communal area or the chill zone upstairs, which has computers...
