"O hostel é muito bom. Ana e sua mãe são muito legais e totalmente disponíveis a ajudar os mochileiros. O hostel atende muito bem à quem busca uma acomodação simples em uma excelente localização."

Liked: The staff were very friendly and made me feel very welcome,. They introduced me to other travellers, made sure I had plans for my stay and enjoyed a general chat. They seemed to always be cleaning so the hostel kitchen and bathrooms were in good shape. There are hair dryers in the bathroom and power points in there too. Really impressed.

Disliked: I could imagine if the place was booked out it might be tight on space however I think this would add to the atmosphere.

Liked: Al ser un hostel mediano/chico hay un ambiente muy lindo, bastante familiar y es fácil cruzarse con gente todo el tiempo y hacer amigos. Los encargados se preocupan por el orden y la limpieza y porque las cosas funcionen bien y son muy amenos.

Disliked: No me gusto que no hubiera reglas claras con respecto al uso de los espacios comunes, especialmente el living room que no siempre se puede utilizar como tal.

Liked: Very friendly helpful staff. One even took me to a shop after I couldn't locate the glue I was seeking there. Very clean tidy place with ample lounging/eating areas. Small but very well equipped kitchen. Right in the town centre close to both the port and to a supermarket. Free Wifi available pretty much throughout. Free breakfast quite good for Argentina.

Disliked: Dorm, or at least the 6 bed I was in, a little cramped. Clothes washing area out back - freezing cold water! Neither of the above anywhere near bad enough to warrant not recommending the hostel

Liked: Good Location. Heating and Hot Showers. Good common room.

Disliked: There was a lot of staff that appeared to work at the hostel who seemed more interested in socialising with each other, taking over the kitchen all day and dis-interested in guests. At times it seemed like they were being a little rude. No english spoken which made it difficult to get any information about the area. The kitchen is way too small, only enough room for one person/group to cook at one time. There was a very young group of people (school group??) staying in a couple of dorm rooms who made lots of noise late into the night, even though the hostel stated that after midnight there should be no noise. Overall I would not rate or recommend this hostel. Surely there has to be better in Ushuaia.
