    The staff was awesome and extremely helpful from the moment I made the reservation. They assisted with booking tours, which turned out to be the best choice. Additionally, the restaurant and common areas were perfect. Kudos to Matias and his staff at the restaurant the food and service was first first class! Overall, an awesome experience will definitely go back.

    This was my first time ever staying at a hostel and I am glad I chose this place. It has a very relaxed vibe and the staff is very friendly. The majority of the hostel guest were fellow backpackers and younger people. It was clean and the staff was really nice. The food was a bit pricey however

    This was my first time staying at a hostel and I can say that I will avoid hostels from here on out. The hostel itself is actually a nice. I’m just not a fan of sleeping with other people in the room...whom I don’t know. The energy of the hostel is welcoming. The location is pretty good as it’s a brisk 10 minute walk to Centro. Many shops, eateries, ATMs, etc in Centro. As well, if you hadn’t made accommodations for excursions then there are several touring companies in Centro. The hostel has a restaurant inside but I didn’t get a chance to eat there. However, I would say the food is pretty tasty based on other guests of the hotel who did order from the restaurant.

    What a great hostel. America del Sur is located on a hill over looking the town of Calafate and the lake. The hostel has big glass windows giving you the outside view from inside the hostel. The staff are really friendly and hospitable. There is a restaurant as well as a hostel kitchen. Over all its a great place to meet other travelers and get a goodnights sleep.

    Stayed in a double room with en-suite. The hostel is c. 20 mins walk away from the centre and the double room appeared to be in a new part of the hostel, but very basic. I did not consider the room and place value for money (charged c. €90 per night) and would recommend going elsewhere in El Calafate if you're choosing the private room option. Very busy hostel, wifi is crap in the room, nice common room with bar, kitchen and outdoor seating area, basic breakfast.
