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.

Hostel Buenos Aires
"Not as described - The hostel did not provide breakfast as described online -- only free coffee, chocolate, milk. Room is ok but it was freezing cold at night (we have the room over kitchen). Also if someone is talking in the kitchen it could be noisy to sleep. Maybe it's a language problem, but owner doesn't seem to care so much about helping us." … "… from the bus station and 300m from the main avenue in the heart of El...
HI - Calafate - Hostel del Glaciar Pioneros
"I just returned from Argentina. This hostel was terrible! They had no record of our reservation. Despite showing them a confirmation email, they shrugged their shoulders and said there was nothing they could do. We ultimately had to stay in the Superior room for significantly more than we had initially planned on paying. The reception staff was very unhelpful and down and out rude the whole time we were there. The hostel is located about ten...
America del Sur Hostel Calafate
"America Del Sur is situated a five-minute walk from the town centre and a ten-minute walk from the bus station (where the hostel will pick you up for free). It is situated on the hillside, with great views of the lakes and mountains. It's one of those hostels that is trying to be a home away from home -- these hostels can always be identified by having to take your shoes off before you enter the hostel. The staff are friendly, speak very...
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. A map is definitely helpful and is available from the tourist info booth at the bus station. 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...

Hostel de las Manos
"Clean, but furthermore not really a nice hostel to be. - A very noisy hostel, with voor women when we were there just one bathroom. De lady who made the breakfast in the morning was jelling to people when they came in the kitchen when she was there and if you didn't want coffee, you didn't get any breakfast. The other two people behind the desk were very nice, but it wasn't a really fun hostel to be. Location was fine by the way. Just five...

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...
