  • The 21% national VAT (value-added tax) is not included in the price, and will be charged at the property upon check-out for all citizens of Argentina. Foreigners on a tourist visa are exempt from this tax. To qualify for a tax exemption, tourists must present a valid passport and pay for the services rendered with a non-Argentine credit card or via bank transfer from another country. This tax exemption does not apply for stays over 90 days. In the case of cancelled bookings, the cancellation penalties paid by the traveller will also be subject to the national VAT (21%).

Breakfast costs between USD 4 and USD 5 per person (approximately)

We have included all charges provided to us by this property. However, charges can vary, for example, based on length of stay or the unit you book.

Very Good8.0
Reasonable price
Typical hostel but fantastic front desk staff (Carlos). Walls are paper thin so you hear everything but headphones fixed that. Hot water was out if few times during my 5 days and water pressure is pretty light. But you aren't in Calafate for that! Cheap beer and food in the on site restaurant and only a quick 10 min walk into the main part of town. Would stay there again!
