overall the hostel is great. very friendly, helpful and inviting. room #4 had 4 bunks in it and 1 bathroom. The shower was a tight fit and water went all over the floor in the bathroom so wet feet for everyone. The laundry service was fast and reasonably priced, overall the hostel was quiet at night and its location is close enough to the bus station but walking distance to everything in town. breakfast was included but honestly it was bread and jam with a choice of coffee, tea, juice. there was cereal but it was stale.
I was there for three nights. The hostel is very close to the bus terminal and many shops and restaurants. I really liked the cleanliness of the place and the spacious room (I had a private double), even if the toilet was quite smelly and the never emptied the bin in the three days I was there. The lounge room is a good place to relax and it’s where the WiFi works best (which is almost nothing in the whole town). Breakfast is a bit boring after a few days. All the members of the staff were very helpful and friendly and ready to answer the million questions we all asked about the weather, the trails and things to do. All in all, a few things could be improved, but it’s a nice place.
This is a decent place for back up if you want to camp at El Chalten. We have 6 beds and had private bathroom. The room was decent. They have breakfast included but not much selection. Coffee, toast, juice and scrambled eggs. Wifi but very slow. They also are good about storing back packs if you are hiking after check out. We didn't hang out much during the day it rained bc not much variety with menu and did not want smoking around us when eating. It's a hostel and feels very much so but appreciate the cleanliness of room.
Really enjoyed our stay here. Staff were most helpful and accommodating. Staff had great tips and advice for hikes (even tho they probably get asked the same questions a hundred times!) and were very accommodating when we had to change around our dates. Common area was good and rooms were great. Would recommend!
Pros: The breakfast was great, the laundry was reasonably priced; beds were comfortable; room was spacious enough; the poor WiFi encourages people to interact with each other (much needed in this day and age); located very near La Roti (excellent empanadas!) and the bus terminal, staff were friendly and helpful. Cons: Poor WiFi (when you really need it); located quite a walk from the trailhead of Fitz Roy. The kitchen was really small, though I didn’t use it. Had a really pleasant experience here and got to know fellow travellers staying here. Would come back again!
