“Wouldn´t bother staying here”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2013

This hostel is very convenient for the bus station in Esquel. Unfortunately that is pretty much the only good thing about it. The dorms were cramped and stuffy. The staff were helpful sometimes, but mainly ignored the guests (especially if your Spanish isnt perfect).The bathroom wasn´t very clean, the shower rarely had hot water and the sink was coming away from the wall.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 December 2012

I have been with my wife in this nice hostel. The owner is building also nice cottages for couples and also for children. There was a nice environment, everything was new, nice and clean. Downstairs is a delivey and take away food place very tasty food indeed! From bus station you can take all urban buses where you can go to different places like Trevelin or Los Alerces National Park (Transporte Esquel) 2 or 3 USD.

Room Tip: Couples must choose cottages they are very comfortable, private, clean, sunny and big. The bathrooms...

The dorm was a little cramped but the great location and very friendly owners more than compensated. I ended up staying for 5 nights while waiting for a bus South and had a great time enjoying meals cooked by the owner, shared with the many Argentinian who stay there. A great place to meet locals and warm atmosphere.
