Located just outside the main road of El Calafate on a hill with a beautiful view of the lake, snow capped mountains and the most spectacular sunsets. Make sure you take a strong wind cheater jacket if you like sitting outdoors. The staff are very friendly and help you plan your day trips and treks with ease. The rooms have...

The shared rooms are clean, tidy, with good mattresses. The chourisso beefs were just incredible, along with a good house wine served in a ambient with the view to the Lago Argentino. The staff were very helpful and friendly.

Stayed in a four bed dorm and my experience is that the hostel gives you a good feeling thanks to the cozy common area and the view. Some details that makes want to leave a low rate are; the shower was really tricky to use and the sink was inside the room which was annoying because it disturbes the others...

A little out of town but worth it. The room was a little small and the shower space was tiny. Temperature inside was a little too high for my taste Everything else was great. Hospitality, cleanness, friendly guests, decent restaurant if you don't feel like walking back to town and good wifi As every where else in Argentina they charge...

Weren't entirely sure what to expect as the first time in a Hostel and combination of previous mixed reviews and we now fall into category of Seenagers. So, an open mind was the order of the day and were pleasantly surprised to be made to feel at home from the start. We had a private room with en suite which...

America Del Sur is a little out of the way (off the main street), but it's easy to get to town from there... and worth staying out of the fray. There are some great views from the lounge and dining area, and the hostel always offers a really reasonable (and delicious) dinner option – there's no need to dine out in...

Staff was amazing. Rubens, Matias and the gang accomodate you and make you feel welcome. Feels like a cabin-clubhouse combo. Stayed in a private room as well as shared room. Both were great. Very clean and has a great view of Lago Argentino. Also offer BBQ dinner every night for 320 pesos. Would gladly book again.

I stayed at America del Sur for one night only after having read great reviews. We booked a triple room with ensuite bathroom and paid around 95 EUR. It was one of the dirtiest bathrooms I have ever had in my room. And definitely the worst hostel I have stayed in during my entire 1-month Argentina/Chile trip. The shower looked...

Hola! We are sorry to hear that you had a bad experience during your stay at our lovely Hostel. Anyway, we find it strange to learn that you found the bathroom to be dirty, considering that our cleanliness is top rated and positively remarked in most of the reviews found on this same site. Regarding the missing property from your...

When you enter the hostel, you meet the lovely staff which make sure that you make the best out of your trip around El Calafate (Perito Moreno, El Chalten, Torres del Paine). Great service. Plus: clean bed rooms and fancy living room where everybody can gather and enjoy the nice view over Lago Argentino.
