We loved pudu- best views of the lake out of the big windows in the room, has a cool patio and hangout area with decent kitchen. the guys that run the place are very cool and will help with whatever you need. We left 3 nights for overnight trekking and they held a bag for us and had a room ready upon return. Would highly recommend!

Views from the rooms - sublime. General state and location of the hostel - excellent. Floorboards - very creaky. Staff - very grumpy. Scones - non existent.

This hostel has good potential. the staff are very friendly and the outdoor common area is nice. The kitchen is ok. the rooms seem to all be 6 man dorms with only 4 lockers. our room had an ensuite bathroom (i think this was standard) and it was very run down and dirty. it was not a pleasant experience having a wash in there and was the reason we checked out sooner than we had planned to (we only stayed 2 nights).

Room Tip: Our dorm was right by the outdoor common area and so was very noisy - this isn´t a complaint, merely...

Hostel Pudu is one of my favourite hostels in Sth America. Tomas, the stand in manager was great fun and helpful and the hostel and bedrooms have a brilliant view over the lake. It's definitely worth staying here if you're in Bariloche!

Pudu is fantastic! The new owner is a very accommodating young person - the staff are also very cool, chilled out folks who are happy to help you at any time day or night - whether you need a fresh towel or a fresh beer!
100 metres from the centre of town, buses, the private hospital (for fellow foreigners needing a doctor). Walking distance from the start of several day hikes and of course the lake, which you can see from anywhere in the hostel.
Pudu has an amazing kitchen that makes it really easy to cook for yourself and avoid spending too much at overpriced Bariloche restaurants. Even it has an amazing view of the lake!
Best of all is the relaxed vibe. Party with people in the bar/dining (artesanal beers on tap for 10 pesos), or chill out in the TV room (real Simpsons in English, anyone? Yes!). The dorms are clean and the sheets are changed regularly. Shower on each floor. There's a tab for everything so you don't have to fiddle around trying to find change for a towel rental or stupid stuff like that.
What makes this place great is the good vibe - participate or don't, pick your speed, you'll feel at ease.
One more thing: the owner is always around so your problems, if you have any, can be resolved on the spot.
This is definitely the best place to stay in Bariloche!

you have to walk a short way uphill but the view is worth it and it is still very close to the city centre. the room was quite big. they have a dining room, a small garden and a fantastic living room with a view over the lake. i also loved their self made bread for breakfast. it is privately owned and not one of those chain-hostels! absolutely recommendable!
