    Friendliest Hostel

    by

    4bed dorms with ensuite bathrooms, kitchen, dining area with great panoramic view. The free breakfast was lacking (compared to other hostels) bread, butter, jam and dulce de leche

    Unique Quality: Exceptionally friendly, enthusiastic and helpful staff.

    Fantastic crew !!!

    by

    America del Sur Hostel was our first ‘hostel’ ever during our holidays. We decided for this hostel in El Calafate after reading very good reviews and because they offered affordable rates. Be aware in El Calafate rates are a lot higher than in other parts of Argentina.

    The hostel is located just outside the town centre of El Calafate (less than 10 minutes walk, partial via a dirt road) on a hill overlooking Lago Argentino with the snow covered Andes mountains in the background.

    Once we took off our shoes (immediately after the front door), we felt at home. Although we expected to meet only ‘youngsters’ there were also travellers more or less from our (older) age. A spirit of travelling is present in this accommodation. And it doesn’t matter where, or in the lounge or dining room, there is always somebody for a chat.

    We had a room for two: basic, clean, private bathroom and a great view !! But the hostel offers also other (cheaper) rooms.

    Unique Quality: Our fondest memory is the fantastic crew of America del Sur Hostel (Seba, Mariano, Mati, Ana). They were so friendly and helpful and did their utmost to make our stay unforgettable (and succeeded).
    We came with hugs and left with kisses !!

    Fantastic Accomodatin in El Calafate

    by

    America Del Sur is one of the nices hostels I have ever visited. It really feels more like an upscale lodge than a hostel. It is owned by three young and energetic people who made a very wise investment in their hostel before the devaluation of the Argintine peso.

    Unique Quality: America Del Sur is perched on high ground over looking El Calafate and Lago Argentina. It is very comfortable and clean with excellent facilities.

    They can organize all sorts of activities including trips to Los Glacier National Park, glacier hiking and boat tours of Lago Argentina.

    They have internet and pleanty of other reasources to educate yourself about the region.
    Self Catering kitchen and breakfast is provided.
    Private Bathrooms
    Hot Water
    Disabled Facilities
    Laundry Service
    Free shuttle from local bus station

    Price: About 20 pesos

    Directions: It is on the hill to the North-East of the village.

    It is a small village and every one will know. The tourist info facilities are really good.

    Hostel with a View

    by

    The Hostel is run two young people who just happen to be brother and sister. The Breakfast is
    mostly toast & coffee or tea but you are able to use the kitchen and fix whatever you want.
    But the hostel is relatively new and with nice clean rooms and is a good stay if you are on a budget . I think we paid $34, however, we booked online thorough Boots n All

    Unique Quality: The floors are heated with radiat heating.
    Great view of the lake from the breakfast nook.

    Directions: a little ways out of town up a hill

Nakel Yenu hostel

by ellielou

has anyone heard of this place?
I think I've narrowed down lodging to Nakel Yenu and America del Sur hostel.

any thoughts on these or other inexpensive accomodations in El Calafate? I'd really like to spend no more than $50 for two people, and need en suite.

thanks.
