location is perfect, just in the city center but on the other hand rooms are basic and not very comfort and breakfast poor. is a good choise if you just look for a place to sleep in el calafate. do not expect luxury or something special

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...

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...

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...

I booked this hostel through booking.com. When I arrived they wanted the stay paid for up-front which I paid in USD cash. When I got home I could see they had ALSO charged my credit card, and now they refuse to refund my payment.

The location is absolutely fine. Easy walking distance to the main street with shops and restaurants, and equally easy walking distance to the bus station. One large and one small supermarket within just as easy walking distance. The bathroom smelled bad and the toilet kept gurgling, although I could not be bothered to tell management. The room was also strangely...

Where do I start.. -Staff were rude, weren't interested in asisting travellers what so ever. -We booked a room with a double bed and when we got there we got 3 singles. We asked staff to change but the rude lady on the counter rolled her eyes and said it wasn't available. (We got it a day later) -Our neighboring...

Located 1 min from downtown and 2 min from the central bus station, it would be a good solution for your stay in El Calafate and that's why we choose it in the first place, but it ended up to be WORST EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE and this is why: 1) We arrived after 30hr of bus from Bariloche really...

Location and outside are very promising, but as soon you enter the hotel you feel you wouldn't expect to much. Staff doesn't pay attention and doesn't make you feel a valuable guest. Rooms are very basic, but clean. Breakfast should better be skipped, although the plastic cutlery is unique!

Not much to rave about this property except a decent location (1 block to main street). It looks much better on the outside than in. Twin room had only 1 useable electrical outlet where a lamp was plugged plus high up behind an unstable tall wardrobe unit for the TV on top. On the whole, it served its purpose but...
