Liked: A good hostel located near the main square in town. Nothing really stood out to me, but no real complaints either. Nice outdoor common areas.

Disliked: Lots of beds are packed into the rooms, and they're really close together. Breakfast isn't included, but that's something that was clear during booking.

Liked: great hostel with superb hostel-atmosphere. perfect place to stay inbetween treks. good for meeting other travellers. lots of trips and after-noon activities offered by hostel.

Disliked: not enough bathrooms. and the bathrooms are too small (taking a shower almost standing in the toilet) and quite shabby (e.g. broken toilet seats poorly mended with wood - not very hygienic...; many broken tiles), but at least clean.

Liked: Great location near the centre of El Bolson, clean, hot water, great kitchen, comfortable beds, leafy backyard with hammocks and an awesome dog, etc. The staff are great and very helpful. I met some cool people here and have stayed two more times as I have been working in the area. Great place, value for money.

Disliked: I am by no means fluent in spanish and the staff speak very limited english so at times it was a struggle to communicate but it´s all part of the fun.

Liked: The location was good and the kitchen facilities were clean and well maintained. Also the patio and garden are good places to chill out and socialise with other guests. Also the hostel is clean and cosy.

Disliked: The owner was friendly enough but was quite unhelpful if you couldn´t speak Spanish, i.e. she didn´t talk slower or simpler for us to understand, therefore finding out about activities in the area was quite difficult.The dog needs to be taken for walks because she has so much energy she gets kind of annoying after a couple of days.

Liked: The location is brilliant- very central. Some of the staff were also very helpful.

Disliked: Not all the staff were as friendly and helpful as others. The bathrooms and showers were of very poor quality and it lacked atmosphere (although that is probably due to being so late in the season)

Liked: Respetuosos en los horarios de descanso, dispuestos a ayudarte en lo referente a organizar excursiones o salidas, ricos desayunos, siempre dispuestos a escuchar críticas o a resolver cualquier inconveniente que surja, excelentemente ubicado con respecto al centro, la plaza, la terminal, el supermercado, los recorridos que salen desde la ciudad; gran espacio verde, cocina siempre limpia y ordenada. Reflejan el compromiso que implica recibir turistas y el disfrute de llevar adelante un proyecto familiar .

Liked: The hostel is very close to the busstation and to the heart of El Bolson.Casa del Arbol is such a nice place - especially for young travellers.There is a nice kitchen and a nice garden area and the staff is also very friendly.

Disliked: To find a quiet place in this hostel is not possible. It is very loud, the whole time. People partying in the garden until late at night and in the dorm every word from the garden you can understand. Hardly were the last in bed, were the first to return and the noise from the kitchen could be heard again. In the dorm, it has very little space. Also the 3 toilets are more than small. There is no room for a shower and you almost need a shower in the toilet bowl.I went to 25 hostels the last 7 months, but this is for my needs by far the worst. Sorry.

Liked: The hostel was located very closely to the bus station, which was nice. They have a fantastic and knowledgeable staff that was very helpful with planning trips, and no particular company or trip was pushed on us. They had a great asado night, and overall the environment was friendly.

Disliked: I thought the hostel was a bit overcrowded and the sleeping arrangement was cramped. It may do the hostel good to rearrange things a bit. Perhaps in the future the owners could buy new bunkbeds with storage spaces below the bed for large bags and spead the beds out a little bit compared with the current design. It wasn't too bad, just a bit awkward at times.
