About El Calafate
El Calafate is a laidback small town in the far south of Argentina’s Patagonia region. It’s growing by leaps and bounds, but still retains an unhurried and relaxed pace. The main street is tourist-y, yes, but it still has appeal. And El Calafate has two big draws that mean you’ll probably pass through here at some point. First, it’s midway between Torres del Paine, Chile and El Chalten, Argentina, making it a natural stopping point on the trekking circuit. Second, it’s the closest point to the spectacular Perito Moreno glacier, 80 km away in Parque Nacional Los Glaciares.
The town itself is pleasant as well, with an eclectic array of offerings for your entertainment and dining pleasure. It is well-conneted by bus and air to points throughout Argentina, and its bus station is centrally located. Be warned, however, that its airport is located some distance outside town and it`s an expensive shuttle ride to your hostel.
El Calafate hostels are numerous and are scattered throughout town, most within walking distance of the main street. Shuttles from the airport will drop you off at your hostel's door. It’s advisable to book ahead during peak season, as beds fill up quickly.

I Keu Ken Hostel
"I Keu Ken Hostel is a nice little hostel in a fast-developing town that's slightly cursed by tourists arriving to see the Perito Moreno glacier and then disappearing soon afterward. The Location It's only fifteen minutes away from the bus station, but its location on a hill and a lack of names on the streets can make it a little tricky to get there. The great view of the surrounding area rewards you once you are there, though. There are...
"From the bus station, the Calafate Hostel is about a 10-minute walk. It is a bit tricky to find the place, but just remember to walk downhill towards the center of town.

Although this hostel is very big, there are enough common areas where you can relax and have space to yourself so it doesn't feel like a big motel. For example, you can hang out...

"Clean, but furthermore not really a nice hostel to be. - A very noisy hostel, with voor women when we were there just one bathroom.

Marcopolo Inn Calafate
"Would not recommend - The Good -- Staff nice enough and the breakfast is good especially since they have no problem with guest taking extra for a cheap lunch/snack. And if your there on the right night they will grill up some asado (not sure if they charge for that -- left before it happened). The Bad -- Upon arrival was told about the strict no-outside-drink policy, asked to buy a water -- no water for sale, have a beer or juice instead. No...
