Took it at last minute just calling. Friendly personnel for two rooms offered a deal. Got rooms clean every day. Will come back for sure next time. Paid on cash. Breakfast was basic but enought. You get what you pay.

When we checked in the room, the toilet had been peed in. The room was very hot with in floorheating and no way to turn it down. Had the window open all night as it was cool outside,but still a suana inside. I believe that the room had been offered to someone else earlier in the day and because of the heat they got another room. We arrived early evening and this was the last room left. Breakfast below average also.

This hostel looks nice from outside. But when you get into room, you are surprised. It is awful, not very clean, beds are not comfortable, shower was very small that we had no space to turn. Whats more I had insects in my bed. That was very bad night spent there. Breakfast was disaster. Plates and glasses very dirty. We came to breakfast one hour before the end and there was no food. We asked staff to bring it and their faces looked like: why are you bothering me? There was not many options to choose: just ham, toast, butter, jam, tea, coffee, water or juice.
We chosed this hostel because it is close to bus station (in walking distance) and we arrived after midnight and in Calafate is difficult to find taxi after ten o´clock.
Never more this hostel.

Well I have to admit that El Calafate is not so big but when one just has to walk down one corner to be right in the activity it is kind of close to me wouldn't you say . . . At firts when I came in the place which I had reserved through Internet I felt it was quite expensive but not much was left as everything was pretty much booked so I took it. Then just to make sure I stopped by other places to find that either it was ab junk or just in the range of what The Austral was asking. Good, one thing done ! Quite a nice place in fact. My room had two single beds. It was quite nice and had a private bathroom that was very well organized. I can't remember if it had breakfast included but I think it did. Pople staying at the Austral are welcome to use the restaurant space to eat food brought in. In general I was pretty satisfied with the Hosteria and would certainly recommend anyone to book there.
