Calafate Hostel Reviews

Stayed there one night and am never going back. The staff was very unfriendly and even rude.


I stayed here for one night, and did find it very impersonal. the open social spaces are vast and don't encourage interaction. Although it is central I wouldn't recommend it.

Female, 37

if you like huge, impersonal, characterless hostels with super uninterested and unfriendly staff, stay here. it looks good on the brochure, and even from the outside, but its more a wanna-be hotel than a hostel. this becomes even more clear from the 30 peso dorm rate and the 7 peso white bread breakfast. stay somewhere else, believe me.


This is the best in Calafate.

Marcela Sandra Slaven

The best hostel in the world, with the best people, the best price and service. It is a great hostel, and the excursion was very nice. Excellent hostel.


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 in the bar/restaurant area, surf the Internet, eat upstairs in the dining area, or sit on the cool balcony that's part of your room. Overall, it has some very cozy areas.

The rooms are very airy and get good sunlight. You can hang things to dry and leave hiking boots on the balcony, which is helpful! The beds are very comfortable and the rooms are kept clean. The bathroom is very good with plenty of hot showers and toilets. The kitchen is also a good size and you can have four or five people in there cooking at the same time.

The staff are extremely helpful and many excursions to El Chalten or the Perito Moreno can be booked at the front desk. Information is clearly displayed for the options and prices. Airport transfers are also available and the service is recommended.

Calafate Hostel Reviews from the Web

Beuatiful, warm and cozy


Good hostel located a few roads back from the main strip. We stayed during winter and the rooms were always warm which was great. We had a private room which was spacious and clean with great shower. Big kitchen with many hobs for cooking which was appreciated. Staff were a bit hit and miss in terms of friendliness and helpfulness.


El desayuno si me parece una burla por lo pequeo que es


Not good, they gave us something else of what we bought, we wanted a 4 person room and they gave us a 6 people rooom.


Friendly staff, clean basic room with a private bathroom and good location , 2 blocks from town center (av Libertador).

Breakfast was OK but it could be crowdie early in the morning cause tours began very early (close to 7:30 am).


Great place


Liked: location Didn't like: kitchen was not so sober


Liked: very nice atmosphere, quite small dining area but it was great for making new friends and talking to each other. I really missed the atmosphere of this hostel when I left to another destination. Staff was very helpful and funny. Didn't like: my locker was broken but it felt pretty safe in the hostel anyway


Liked: Great location, 2 blocks from the main street. Very helpful staff. Good breakfast. Didn't like: Wifi is a bit dodgy, 2 out of 5 compared to other hostels.


Liked: Spacious and clean. The town is so small there cannot be a bad location. We had a four-bed dorm and had the key so it felt safer. The building is really nice. (wooden and airy) Didn't like: Breakfast could be better (it was frosted flakes, cookies, toast, coffee, orange juice). perhaps this is the norm

It is made of wood, which gives it a friendly and cozy atmosphere; it has 189 beds of the highest comfort. There are large common spaces where meeting others is within hands reach. Its accessibility is ideal because it is situated in the centre of El Calafate, a few metres from the bus terminal(200meters) and from the principal shopping centres, banks, supermarkets and public offices
