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!
