Dear guest, we sincerely apologize to receive this feedback. Upon looking into the situation, we understand the bad moment due to the confusion that was generated. We only receive the automatic notification of booking of a request for a normal cancelation, without any comment that will explain your situation or anything. That happened because the cancelation phone call was made to booking.com, and not to us. That’s the main reason why we were unable to help you. If we had known the reasons for your cancelation, we would definitely have given you more options !! Please feel free to reach out directly to our management should you like to discuss further. We hope you'll give us another opportunity to provide you with the quality experience we pride ourselves in providing. Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. Warm regards, America del Sur.

This hostel has a great staff, with an excellent view, and an amazing BBQ. The BBQ was definitely a highlight for us and seemed to be the best price around town with all that it included. We stayed in a little house right next store to the main hostel building sharing a bathroom

Thank you so much for choosing us and for charing your experience with other travellers! We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay. Although we understand tours may appear a little bit expensive, the rates on this activities are not decided by our hostel, so there´s not much we can do. We appreciate your feedback anyway and we are looking forward to receiving you again really soon! Warm regards,

If I remember right they accept credit card but charge some extra and need to take you picture or something like that. Always simpler to pay cash in most places in the area. No idea about VAT sorry

Hi sumsum The hostel is situated about 10 minutes from the main road, with an uphill on the way back. We had a car but 4 years ago I was there without one and it was totally fine. We actually booked our tour to the glacier through the hostel in advance. They are organised and friendly. Enjoy your trip!

A cuantas cuadras esta del centro?
Hola Yanelina! Estamos a 7 cuadras aproximadamente del centro. Es decir que caminando son cerca de 10 minutos. Es la manera de poder acceder a la vista increíble a la montaña y al lago argentino. Cualquier otra duda, por favor contáctanos que con mucho gusto te ayudaremos! Te mandamos un caluroso saludo! Seba
