      Great location, 5 min walk to the center and 5 min walk to bus station. The place was really clean, new, trendy and spacious. Separate plug and light for each bed. Staff was very friendly and helpful, they even call to confirm the airport pick up for me. If you’re looking for a place to stay in Calafate, this hostel is a great choice.

      Why can’t every hostel be this place?”

      So clean, so new, so spacious, such friendly, cool staff. Good wifi good breakfast, staff is super helpful and this was the first hostel I didn’t wanna leave. It’s near the bus station and close to the supermarket (a small walk but not as far as most other hostels there as far as I could tell). Thanks Folk!

      Location could be better as is not in central of the Town but at least I could have a nice walk back. Very good selection of food for breakfast. Very friendly staff who spoke English which was very helpful. I was very surprise when on my arrival as the hostel was very specious and clean. People say that it could be quite cold in hostel in April, but it wasn’t a case at all as the underfloor heating was working perfectly. Also, I was surprise that I had a bathroom in my room (booked a double room) which was very convenient after all day of traveling. Would stay there again for 100%.

      Great hostel!”

      Pros: everything - cleanliness, comfortable beds and room, hot showers, nice atmosphere in the lounge area, very awesome breakfast spread (the best I’ve had thus far), friendly staff, good WiFi, near the bus terminal. Cons: Because it’s near the bus terminal, it’s at least a 10 min walk to town. The kitchen seemed a little squeezy although I didn’t cook there. I’d definitely come back here again!
