bad wifi, not very helpfull staff
- the staff at the reception refused to give any information about buses, basically only because they sell their own trips... - wi-fi practically non existing. It 'works' only in the lobby area and disconnects every couple of minutes. - good music in the hall - pretty spacious and clean private rooms

Would highly recommend
We enjoyed our stay here. It was clean and comfortable. We loved the open spaces and there plenty of places to relax. The only negative thing we found was the wifi, it wasn’t password protected so each time you wanted to use it you had to reconnect and accept the terms and conditions. It would log out each time you locked your phone. But this was only a small inconvenience, it was a fabulous hostel otherwise.

Centrally located hostel with good tours
Short 3 night stay in Calafate was overall pleasant. The hotel was right across the bridge from the Main Street. Rooms were basic and clean, WiFi was very slow, reception was very helpful with tours! Overall recommended!

Great hostel, would stay again
We really enjoyed our stay at Hostel and Suites del Glaciar Libertador. Our rooms were clean and tidy as was the rest of the hostel. The breakfast was great, kitchen was fairly clean and there was plenty of space to relax in. The only thing we found frustrating was the wifi. There is no passcode but each time you wanted to access it you had to reconnect to it. So if we were using our phones and locked them they would no longer have wifi connected and we’d have to unlock them and follow the sign in process again manually.

Friendly, hipster and Nicely located Hostal
We stayed in Glaciar Libertador for 4 nights and we were really comfortable. The libertador av it’s one of the most important in the area so everything we needed was nearby... supermarkets, bars, restaurants, tours and souvenir shops. The front desk guys are really nice and they offer tours as well. We used the laundry service and they delivered the clothes the same day, which is nice and convenient. Breakfast was delicious, they give toasts and crepes, fruits and juices but you can also order scrambled eggs. We stayed in a private room and even if it was really cold outside, our room was really warm and cozy and we never felt cold at all... we think the floors had temperature control as they were always warm but not quite sure if that’s the case... Also something super important for us it’s the shower, and here both the water pressure and temperature was amazing! Warm showers are important after walking on a glacier!

Great place to stay in calafate
This is a great hostal f o r those looking to be based centrally, 10 min easy walk from bus terminal and 5 mins easy walk to main street, supermarkets, restaurants etc. The breakfast is great and includes eggs and pancakes! The staff are very helpful. The rooms ( 4 person dorm) are spacious with own bathroom. The shared kitchen is great and hardly used.

Fair 4.0
Signs of Bed Bugs
While the service was great, I unfortunately had to leave before I stayed here. There were signs of bed bugs in two different rooms, and I could not risk traveling with this problem. It's clear that they have had problems with them as the beds are stripped when you arrive. Mattresses look very old. I know it is a low price, but I was able to get so much more value at Calfate Hostel and a clean room. Front desk person was very nice, and it us in a good part of the town. Hopefully thet will make some upgrades and work on this, using matress protectors.
