Fabulous 8.6 From 108 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Very charming staff and a welcoming atmosphere. Seemed well setup on offering food and drinks, coffee and breakfast was just OK. Strangely the eggs are put out raw and you have to use their kitchen to cook them. Room was quiet, clean and comfortable.

Great hostel!
Very nice hostel. The only downside is that it was a little too expensive so I couldn’t stay there longer! Other than that, no complaints!
Kent Olof Niklas, us1 night trip
Fair 4.0
Great views, but really dirty!
Good location, away from town. 10 min walk. Good views. Easy tour arrangements. We had a private room, however it is true hostel style living,I.e. no soap and towel rental. We have stayed at other hostels during our trip and this one was truly the filthiest. Floors unswept, mold in shower, just NOT clean.

No protein for breakfast unless you ask for it.
The common room has a really nice feel to it, and huge windows. The one down side of the hostel was the breakfast situation... all bread. They do have a sign posted saying if you have celiac disease they will add options, though, and there were eggs avail (for guests to cook) on my last night. They kept the hostel sufficiently warm on cold Patagonia nights.
