The Hostelz.com Review

1004 Penthouse is a tenth-story hostel located in the heart of Bariloche's city center. It offers breathtaking views of Bariloche, Lago Nahuel Huapi, and its surrounding mountains from every angle (including the toilet!). Its central location makes access to Bariloche's urban services very easy, and public transport to Bariloche's natural attractions at the doorstep. The common areas are spacious and well equipped, and the breakfast is above standard.

The Location

The hostel is situated adjacent to the Centro Civico, quite literally the city's center. The hostel's central location makes access to Bariloche's services and sites very easy. You can reach the groceries, Museo de la Patagonia, or the sands of Lago Nahuel Huapi in minutes. From the bus terminal, you have the option of taking a taxi , or city bus #20 or 21. Be advised, for public transportation, a SUBE (Sistema Único de Boleto Electrónico) card is required -- public transportation no longer accepts cash. Once entering Bariloche Center, you will be directed to the tenth floor, and to the end of the hall where the hostel can be found.

Rooms and Bathrooms

1004 Penthouse has eight rooms, all which feature panoramic views of Lago Nahuel Huapi, the city, or the surrounding mountains. The bathrooms are no exception either -- watching the lake's tides while brushing your teeth is a very relaxing experience! Both shared rooms and private rooms (matrimonial and double) are available, all of which comes with central heating and storage lockers. The six bathrooms available are shared, but meant for individual usage.

Common Spaces

The common spaces are spacious and comfortable, with ample seating and dining space available. The common spaces, especially the lengthy balcony, offer the most impressive views on the property. The kitchen is fully equipped and prepared for the inevitable dinner and breakfast rushes of shared living. Basic condiments such as oil, salt, spices, tea, filter coffee, and sugar, are all provided. Wi-Fi and a shared computer are available, as well as free luggage storage, a book exchange, and laundry service. Breakfast includes homemade bread, butter, cereal, marmalades, tea, coffee, and sugar.

Summary

1004 Penthouse is perfect for those wanting to be in the center of Bariloche, and within a glance of some of the city's best views. It is a spacious, well-equipped, and relaxed living space, which provides superior common areas.

A friendly vibe with clean, comfortable rooms and a spectacular view!
There is a reason this hostel has such great reviews! It's good value for money, the rooms are clean and so are the bathrooms (of which there are many). There's plenty of space in the common areas, a decent kitchen, an a good breakfast with freshly baked bread each morning. Staff are well-informed and happy to help with advice on the local area, or bookings. Last but not least, there's the balcony with its spectacular view of the lake. A great place for a sundowner!

  Fantasic hostel, friendly and helpful staff, amazing views (10th floor), great kitchen (very well set up - we cooked many nights despite many good restaurants), really good atmosphere, cosy common areas and lots of useful info. Highly recommended.

  A cozy and welcoming place — the staff (at the time Cecelia, Juan, Javier, Gladys and Marcel) were patient, very helpful and good fun. The cost per night is good value; the number of things to do around Bariloche is almost endless; the town itself is lovely; the advantageous tenth-story views from 1004 are out of this world; I could go on and on. This hostel was one of the best that we stayed in throughout our round-the-world trip and has stayed with us in the form of happy memories. There is a nice chilled vibe that starts with the staff and I guess is infectious, as most folks we came across here were cool and seemed to love it too. La Morada is just as wicked, too, and has to be experienced.
