Albergue & Hostal del Glaciar Libertador - HI

Albergue & Hostal del Glaciar Libertador - HI

I don't do reviews often, but I felt this hostel was worthy of some props. This hostel was the best that I have stayed in. Very clean, comfortable and charming - it felt like a good quality hotel. The location was just on the edge of the downtown area and across the way from a cool hill lookout point/park. I would highly recommend staying here! ... more

Quite a hike out of the town center, we hadn't expected this place to be a YHA, and were positively surprised by how good it was. Very friendly service, good rooms, decent (buffet) breakfast. Minor niggles would be the wifi not quite reaching all the way till the rooms at the end of the hallway, and the shower curtain (I hate those things). ... more

  • Perito Moreno
    We went to El Calafate to see the Perito Moreno glacier in the Southern Patagonian ice fields where we ate lunch on a rock in front of the monstrous wall of ice. We met a British guy named Kevin who we convinced to follow us through Patagonia. The highlight of the day and quite possibly ...

  • From the Rain Forest to... Glaciers
    When I came to El Calafate, I originally had not planned on staying. However, I heard so many cool stories from going to see the Perito Moreno glacier that I had to see it for myself. The Perito Moreno glacier is over 32 km in length (the size of the city of Buenos Aires!). It is also one of the few ...

This is a small house with only a handful of rooms. You feel more like a house guest than a hostel guest. The four girls who run the place are very, very nice and helpful.

The hostel is nearby the bus station and the centre. The staff is very helpful, but the rooms are very noisy and you will wake up if your next door neighbors or above neighbors will wake up.
