Location was a little over 5 minute walk from the main street. Kitchen was well stocked and they had reusable bags for grocery shopping. Breakfast was simple bread with butter and jam. We were two couples staying in two private rooms, it was little unclear as they said they switched one of our rooms from what we booked, but we...

We had a pleasant stay at Nakel Yenu that met our expectations. The location is fine, it's a bit outside of the central part of town but this is not that big of a town so it's not really far away either. The rooms are spare but clean, and they did provide soap. The wifi was decent. What is called...

My wife and I travelled throughout Chile and Argentina in November 2015. The staff at the Nakel Yenu hostel were incredibly helpful. They helped us book some of our most memorable excursions and made sure that we were adequately equipped. We had a private room right off the main lobby. It was quiet, clean and safe. The kitchen nearby was...

The staff are very friendly and kind, and offer great advice on how to get around. Wifi is available, and the bathrooms are quite clean. The beds are comfy and the views are quite nice as well. It is situated just a walk out of the main town.

I was injured with bleeding head and concussion because the curtain pole dropped on my head soon after check-in. They left the broken curtain holder and still put the curtain pole on the remaining part, in result, the huge curtain pole dropped on my head when I tried to open the window. Even after my head was bleeding, the owner...

A great place where to stay in El Calafate. Friendly staff, good breakfast, very clean and safe place. Dorms are nice, maybe a bit small, but comfortable. The guys at reception provide you with every information you may need, including reservations for transfers or treks. If you plan on doing the minitrek to Perito Moreno, make sure you do call/email...

Very friendly staff, good vibes in communal areas. We stayed in a private double with bathroom which was a bit of luxury for us backpackers! Towels and shampoo provided! We looked in at the dorms and they looked really nice and the bathrooms were very clean. Dining room with chill out space was great fun in the evening. Good location...

WE had a room with a bathroom for two people. There is no real furniture in the room but as the room was large that was not a problem. Breakfast was almost basic. Everyone at the reception was very helpful

This is pretty much the first time I'm giving a review for any hostel, stayed here for three nights and can't recommend it enough! The staff (in particular Fede, Nacho and Juan) are so great, they went above and beyond to make me feel at home here, booked all my trips, buses and transfers. The weekend I stayed there it...
