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

Federico and the guys were awesome, nothing was too difficult to arrange. The vibe is cruisey with dub playing in the background, traditional BBQ´s and bi-lingual staff.

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.
