Liked: The staff were nice and the place was kept clean though the rooms are small,the mattresses are torn and the sheets did not cover the bed and the pillowcase was torn and old as well. The shower for our room was tiny but it was warm and the kitchen is well equipped.  Disliked: Clare left no negative feedback.

Justin Biddle

No frills, easy laid back vibe to the place. Nice owners who keep the place clean and quietly ticking over. The dog has a bit of character, though he got attacked the other night when a bunch of Aussies came in late and let him out where a nearby stray had a go at him.

Ruca Hueney which means ' your friend's house ' in Mapuche language is a youth hostel located in the center of beautiful San Carlos de Bariloche in Patagonia Argentina.

The upper floor has three rooms with a bathroom for each one. The capacity of the rooms are four, five and six persons.

The upper floor also has the room that people have named 'The Suite', because it has a kingsize bed, a bunkbed and a private bathroom with bathtub. All this with an exellent view of the lake.

You walk into the middle floor from the main entrance of the house. Here you will find a big kitchen fully equiped with anything you need to cook, and a big refrigerator to store your food.
You´ll also find another bathroom, laundrette, diningroom, livingroom, TV, internet and a balcony for the smokers; you can´t smoke inside the house.

Downstairs we have two big dormitory rooms with a capacity for eight and eleven people. There´s a BBQ where you can make and enjoy tipical Argentine meat and right outside this room you can safely park your car in the outside patio.In all the rooms you´ll find clean sheets and pillows and the hot water runs 24 hours.

For larger groups we can organize dinner parties and other group activities such as mountainbiking, hiking and other sightseeing of our beautiful local mountain.
