What I think is most unique about this hostel, besides from the handmade breads and jams for breakfast and its extreme cleanliness, is the overall sense of community that the hostel seems to bring forth . For a couple of reasons the hostel encourages this kind of environment--for one, the hostel is intimate with a cozy communal area and one big communal where I´ve had a lot of great conversations with people from all over the world over shared wine and food. Another reason is the plethora of maps and travel books that make it really easy to share travel experiences and/or trecking routes around Bariloche and beyond. There is a completely full shelf of travel books, ones about Patagonia, Argentina, South America and even nearby countries like Chile. Plus, they are in all different types of languages. And, there must be a hundred maps to look at, which I find really helpful and important for a hostel to have, especially in a place where most people visit to hike around. It´s really ideal!
And, I want to add, there is an amazing book exchange!
