Hostelz.com's Review
Chepatagonia Hostel is a quiet and comfortable hostel that is clean and well maintained by the couple who own and run the place. It's not a very big hostel, and typically holds up to about twenty people at a time, mostly the quieter but friendly and active/outdoorsy crowd.

The Location

It's located very close to the beach (about twenty meters to the corner of the street -- the beach is just across the road from there), with views of the sea from the upstairs balcony and the front-facing bedrooms. There are lots of good restaurants within less than a one-kilometer walking radius, including a couple of pubs. The intercity bus stand is a bit far, but still walkable with a backpack (about twenty minutes away).

Rooms and Bathrooms

They have both private twin rooms and dorms. All rooms are provided with clean linen and have comfortable beds; towels are typically an extra charge but are also clean. Bathrooms are cleaned daily and are basic and functional. Private rooms and dorm rooms share bathrooms. Rooms have lock and key but no cupboards in them; dorm rooms have individual lockers for each bunk that are large enough to hold backpacks.

Common Spaces

There are two common areas -- one upstairs and one downstairs; the downstairs area is better furnished and focused on seating, while the upstairs area doubles up as a dining room with tables/chairs. The TV and internet computers are downstairs (you can get Wi-Fi across the building). Games are available in both common areas along with a book exchange. The kitchen attached to the upstairs dining area is fully functional and well stocked with utensils (there is no dishwasher, though, so you must self wash immediately after using utensils). Breakfast is included and consists of bread and spreads along with tea/coffee in the upstairs area.

The common areas see a lot of activity, not the typical party hostel variety, but people just chatting over beers or playing one of the many board games. Most of the crowd is in the age group of twenty-five to forty and all are friendly and outdoorsy, with a typical stay is of two to five days.

Summary

This is a nice place to stay, especially if you're looking for something comfortable and quiet (but not so quiet) with friendly hosts and guests. The owners also arrange local tours for most activities and the price is typically better than what you can get on the street and they are also very good at helping out with directions for self-tours. They do let you know about the rules of the hostel when you check in and expect you to follow through.

4   Very nice people and very very clean hostel. We were there around Christmas and joined the Christmas eve diner, which was a very good barbecue with drinks en happy people. The owners of the hostel are very nice and helpful with anything and they make sure the whole hostel is clean and cosy every day. I would really recommend this.  , the Netherlands ()
