We stayed in Los Gnomos for 3 nights. The Hostel is very new and modern, the rooms are small but with every comfort we needed (TV, confy bed and space to store things). Staff was friendly and helpful. Wifi worked okay. Breakfast was "argentinian Standard": Medialunas, Coffee, Bread, Juice and Cake. It would look more "welcoming" for guest if they would put plates etc. on every table in the morning. Sometimes it's all about the small things - especially for a new Hostel. It's definitly the wrong place if you want to visit other travellers: more of a Hotel than a Hostel.
As long as the new bus terminal in el Calafate isn't finished, it's better to take a Taxi if you arrive with heavy luggage. The Hostel is a bit out of center, but in walking distance (15min).
Finally we had a good stay at Los Gnomos and would recommend it to travellers.
