bad wifi, not very helpfull staff
- the staff at the reception refused to give any information about buses, basically only because they sell their own trips... - wi-fi practically non existing. It 'works' only in the lobby area and disconnects every couple of minutes. - good music in the hall - pretty spacious and clean private rooms

Would highly recommend
We enjoyed our stay here. It was clean and comfortable. We loved the open spaces and there plenty of places to relax. The only negative thing we found was the wifi, it wasn’t password protected so each time you wanted to use it you had to reconnect and accept the terms and conditions. It would log out each time you locked your phone. But this was only a small inconvenience, it was a fabulous hostel otherwise.

Great hostel, would stay again
We really enjoyed our stay at Hostel and Suites del Glaciar Libertador. Our rooms were clean and tidy as was the rest of the hostel. The breakfast was great, kitchen was fairly clean and there was plenty of space to relax in. The only thing we found frustrating was the wifi. There is no passcode but each time you wanted to access it you had to reconnect to it. So if we were using our phones and locked them they would no longer have wifi connected and we’d have to unlock them and follow the sign in process again manually.
