Young, hip people seem to be in charge, great feeling around, cool ambiance. Good breakfast, and the views from restaurant are priceless! Hammocks in front of restaurant, great sunsets.

Excellent accommodation
Comments on behalf of guest, Maddie (23 old) who is still travelling. Hostel was welcoming. Service was excellent and great food. Returning there in 3 days time after a hike. Plenty to see and do.

Very Good 8.0
Very charming staff and a welcoming atmosphere. Seemed well setup on offering food and drinks, coffee and breakfast was just OK. Strangely the eggs are put out raw and you have to use their kitchen to cook them. Room was quiet, clean and comfortable.

Great hostel!
Very nice hostel. The only downside is that it was a little too expensive so I couldn’t stay there longer! Other than that, no complaints!
Kent Olof Niklas, us1 night trip
Fair 4.0
Great views, but really dirty!
Good location, away from town. 10 min walk. Good views. Easy tour arrangements. We had a private room, however it is true hostel style living,I.e. no soap and towel rental. We have stayed at other hostels during our trip and this one was truly the filthiest. Floors unswept, mold in shower, just NOT clean.

No protein for breakfast unless you ask for it.
The common room has a really nice feel to it, and huge windows. The one down side of the hostel was the breakfast situation... all bread. They do have a sign posted saying if you have celiac disease they will add options, though, and there were eggs avail (for guests to cook) on my last night. They kept the hostel sufficiently warm on cold Patagonia nights.

The house on the side is nice to chill or crash in. Got a room upstairs and it suited me just fine. Has a kitchen shared with one other downstairs.

Amazing place
I had a great time in this hostel, the commune area with the big windows looking over the lake and mountains is wonderful! The staff is super helpful, the wifi works perfectly, the kitchen is well equipped and there is a bar to buy drinks in the evening. I met some really cool people there that ended up being my travel companions for the next days.
