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...

"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...
