America del Sur Hostel El Calafate, El Calafate
The perfect hostel!
I loved staying at this hostel so much that I basically didn't want to leave. The views in from the common area are gorgeous and the location is quite convenient. The Cal-tur bus terminal was a 15-20 min walk, the town main street is approx the same. The folks running this hostel friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful. Almost everyone there spoke sufficient English and were very patient with our embarrassingly broken Spanish. The hostel is able to arrange bookings for why excursions, bus or taxi rides you may need. Their rates were always the same as booking directly with the vendor and they have receipts for everything which goes a long way in building trust. Only somewhat -ve was basically that the double bed we had was 2 singles stuck together and the mattress was a little uncomfortable for me. Other than that the room was clean and comfortable. The heated stone flooring was definitely a plus. Oh and yeah, the private bathroom with the room was to die for! Such a wonderful bathroom, new, white modern and super clean. I loved the place!

Amazing Hostel
AMAZING!! The staff was extremely helpful with everything. Within an hour of my check-in I had everything booked, from tours to lunch boxes for full day excursions, to in-house dinners. The place was very nice and everyone was easy going, great environment to make new friends.
