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.

America del Sur Hostel – El 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...
"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 Lago Argentino
"Hostel Lago Argentino is a place to stay for a couple of nights or for long term. It is not a great place to meet people, even though it has a large common area, since most people spend full days out at the glacier or exploring the national park and return late at night. The walls are sponge painted to give it an alternative atmosphere with pictures and posters of Patagoni hanging on them. The staff are friendly at times, but are not very...

Che Lagarto Hostel Calafate
"Great vibe and cool staff - I stayed here for three nights and really enjoyed it, it's a brand new hostel and has a great vibe about it, well worth being there just to chill out! good facilities however the plumbing could use some work.

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...
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...
Hostel de las Manos
"Clean, accommodating, and peaceful - Not the cheapest on the block but really friendly and helpful.

Could relax here in the evening and prepare own food with free Wi-Fi and internet. Really smart looking from the outside, hot, powerful water and good walks. Worth the extra...
