Hostel & Suites del Glaciar Libertador
Firstly this place is a hostel. I stayed in a private ensuite room but you share a lobby and walkways (which can be a little cluttered, noisy and creaky - it's all made of wood) with other hostel users. I really liked the laidback atmosphere, was able to book excursions to the glacier and make use of the luggage storage area through the efficient front desk staff. Breakfast was basic but the ladies there were kind. Its a short walk from town but just far enough out to get a little peace from the highly commercial central strip. Was not happy that there appeared to be no hot water one morning out of three.

Great value
Amazing price for private room and bath in hostel. Nice shower, separate toilet room, large sink area. Heated tile floors. Bed was a bit hard, but tolerable. Breakfast was good, ask for eggs, there is a sign that not everyone notices. The desk service was excellent. They made phone calls for me when I had trouble with the language. The wifi was good on our first stay, but second stay we were in farthest room from lobby and could not get it. The location is excellent, we could walk to bus station, and also easy walk to town center, Overall, spent 4 nights in three different stays and was happy to return each time.

Good hotel but with noisy guests
Good hotel and walking distance to town center and supermarket, Hielo Y Aventura office, restaurants, police station, church etc. But there were school kids who were making a lot of noise on the first night and less so on the 2nd night. Other guests told me there was a big group of schoolies on the first night hence the ridiculously loud yelling etc. Took a while to quieten them down. Heard they were here from Ushuia for a snow skating tournament from reception
