Liked: Location only

Disliked: Way to many guests for the facilities they have on offer. Tiny common area was always full. Computers had restricted hours of use and you couldn't use USB's in them. No 24 hour reception. Very little english amongst staff. They two guys who work there stroll around with a messy sheet of paper with names scribbled out all over the place trying to figure out whos steying in what room and who owes what. Both toilets (as there is only two amongst all the male guests) were blocked up and full to the brim with sh*t for two of my 3 days there. There were only 3 showers (dribbles of water) amongst all the male guests in hostel also. Lonely Planet says it has a lovely library room...its 2 bean bags and a book shelf in a narrow corridor where people have to step over you every few minutes! I couldn't recommend this place to anyone.

Liked: Friendly owner, although he is incredibly understaffed and can get crazy busy.

Disliked: Very noisy and way to expensive for it's worth. Just nothing that makes this property stick out over any others.

Liked: Vicki & Andres were very helpful with organising tours. The kitchen was well decked out. The showers were nice & hot once they warmed up & had fantastic pressure.

Disliked: It was the first time in our travels in South America we'd come across a fee to pay for luggage storage (20 pesos just for 3 hrs while waiting for a departing plane).

27 March 2010 Maria would recommend this property

Liked: It was one of my favourite hostels in Argentina so far. It was clean, warm, coulourful and cozy and the staff made me feel really at home.I'm actually staying more nights than i expected. It is difficult to leave Ushuaia. It's such an amazing place. I recommend the hostel to all travellers and also, very important, it's just a few metres from main street. (In Ushuaia, infact even three blocks up would make you feel like you are going on a hike---the city is a bit like the san francisco of south america)

Disliked: Maria left no negative feedback.
