- Buenos Aires: Hostal de Granados
Located in the San Telmo district of Buenos Aires on a nice street with loads of cafes and bars. The hostel is built around a courtyard which was nice and sunny. Fairly basic rooms and kitchen but great location.
A short bus ride outside the small town of Santa Rosa de la Calamuchita, this hostel was the anthesis of our experience in Buenos Aires – lovely and quiet with really helpful hosts.
- Cordoba: Pewman Che
A busy hostel in a decent location with an unpleasant concave matress. Small garden out the back where we ate breakfast with a puppy that kept on trying to attack Claire.
- Mendoza: Hostal Chimbas
Located a bit of a distance from the centre of town (approx 25 min walk) next to a motorway. Owners were lovely and were incredibly helpful after we were mugged. The hostal has a really nice garden with a small pool.
- Bariloche: Bariloche Hostal
This hostal had amazing views of the lake Nahuel Napi. Nice rooms but communal area and kitchen a little small for the number of guests.
- El Bolson: Hospedaje Pehuenia
Very friendly and helpful owners. The hostal lacked a few things like lights and doors that could be closed but it was still a great place to stay.
- Puerto Madryn: Hi Patagonia Hostel
Busy hostel with basic breakfast. Nice outside area and large communal room but really small kitchen. Seemed safe and secure but a couple of (unusual & valueless) things went missing from our room. They arranged a decidedly unimpressive tour of Peninsula Valdes with a guide who said less than 10 words the entire trip.
- El Calafate: Che Legarto Hostal
Huge hostel with a poorly equipped kitchen. We had a good sized room with a very decent heating system. They arranged a really good quality and good value tour of Perito Moreno glacier.
- Puerto Natales: Backpackers Kawashkar
Room turned out to be a twin rather than a double as advertised. The owner seemed to be in his own little world most of the time but the German girl working there was very nice and helpful and they rented us equipment for the W trek. Nice breakfasts including an omelette!
- Punta Arenas: Hostal Ainil
Slightly further out of the town centre than we would have liked. Kitchen consisted of just a kettle and a microwave. Lovely warm rooms with TV.
- Ushuaia: Las Retamas
More of a small B&B than a hostel. Good breakfasts, friendly owner and blind dog that kept on running into the furniture.
- Buenos Aires: Pax Hostel
Large party hostel in a not great location. Room was large and comfy but both the street outside and the hostel were noisy at night. Best thing about it was that breakfast was served until midday!
- San Ignacio: Adventure Hostel
Laid out a bit it like a holiday camp with rooms in different buildings away from the main common area & kitchen. Had a pool, pool table and table tennis table. Highly recommended.
- Puerto Iguazu: Hostel Iguazu Falls
Good location, 2 minutes walk from the bus station. Reasonable common areas and pool (we would have enjoyed it more if the weather had been better). Barely adequate breakfasts.
