Location: Ushuaia Centro has a grid layout 4x10 Blocks. Streets parallel to Channel are flat, the crossing streets are steep. The Centro is small and walkable. The hostel is located one block from supermarket (La Anomina), and 10min from "Bus Station" (Parking Lot next to Petrol Station). Bus cannot be booked at bus station (=> Travel Agencies).

It's an average place to stay - rooms were ok, beds standard bunks, little bit crammed for breakfast as there's not much space for everyone to eat, 24hr lounge was cool, breakfast basic and average. The woman running the show was friendly and nice BUT ran the place like a drill sergeant. You must leave by 10am or you get...

The hostel has a bunch of restrictions, a lot of which one might consider nuisance (thereby the 4 stars), like no phone charging in the rooms (no outlets), etc. But it's a great social place, and the hosts are very helpful and attentive.

The hostel is very nice. You can meet lots of nice people in the "living room" easily. The stuff is cooperatively and friendly. The kitchen is equipped with lots of dishes and pots. There are 8 gas stoves and 2 ovens. The kitchen is open between 8:30h and 21.30h only. This is very uncomfortable (sunrise in summer: ~5.00h and sunset...

It was very weired to stay in this "hostel". From the arrival on the owners were very unfriendly - the only thing they care is getting your money and have as less to do for it as possible....after you paid, you are just disturbing and they make you feel not like a paying guest, you feel more like a child....

Don't get me wrong, the hostel itself is not that bad and the guy behind the reception was actually very helpfull, but I will give it a horrible evaluation. It is the first time in my life I will do so and here is why. I stayed one night here, checked out the next day because I could move and...

I am not sure what has happened at this hostel previously to warrant so many rules but its completely excessive and makes everyone feel like they are treading on eggshells. No wearing shoes past the front door, no frying any food (so no frying pans provided), no eating in the hang-out area, no noise past midnight, only 15 minutes allowed...

I've stayed in a lot of hostels in my time and without exaggeration this was the worst by far. The word hospitality does not exist in the managements vocabulary, they take your money and give you the bare minimum in return. They don't care about you as an individual at all they just want your money. Whilst I was having...

The hostel is very special but unfortunately not in a good way. In general it's very clean and very well managed but you are not more than a guest. They have so many rules: - kitchen closes at 21:30 - Computer not allowed to use after 22:00 - don't fry anything (no extraction hood but how about buying one?) -...
