Nice place to stay. Hostel world etc says short walk from bus station, not true!! 25 min walk with good amount uphill, not pleasant with backpacks. Wouldn't have minded if said so on description, have walked further to other hostels from station. Nice welcoming staff. Have communal BBQs arranged for small fee. Good sized and clean room with good and...

I booked a 4 night stay at this hostel after reading all of the good reviews I read. The hostel offers extremely friendly staff that love to push tours on you, but overall like to help you e kitchen facilities are great for making your own food. The location is a bit out of town but the walk is only...

I stayed at Nakel Yenu for 4 days with my boyfriend in a double room. The place is close to the center and the staff includes four kind and friendly guys. I loved the fact that it was always clean and cozy, with great music and great wibe. The breakfast was luxurious! Also hot water all the time, good Wifi,...

Nakel Yenu is a good backpacker's place. You get good value for your money, even though some basic things are missing, for instance hooks to hang clothes in the dorms (it wouldn't cost a lot of money or effort to add them) and also storm plugs in the dorms. The kitchen, in a separate building, is roomy , well equipped...

Pros: - Beautiful dining area - good asado dinner with unlimited wine - helpful, welcoming staff, all spoke English well - good hot water - location close to the grocery store, a quick walk downhill into town Cons: - Rooms on the ground floor open right onto the lobby so are rather noisy - Unreliable WiFi

I stayed at Posada Patagonica Nakel Yenu, for 17 nights. I enjoyed my stay there, it had some of the best coffee I have found in Argentina, great hot showers, and a very helpful and friendly staff. Beds were re-made every day, linen replaced every few days, and it was staffed by dedicated and competent maids. A few areas could...

This place was great, the atmosphere is wonderful and the guys running it are very cool. The kitchen is separate and a great spot to cook up a storm & meet fellow travellers. This was seriously the best place we stayed in through the whole of Argentina. You are likely to wake up to soft reggae pink floyd mixes in...

Liked the atmosphere of this place. Cozy and nice place to hang out. Staff was also very friendly. Private rooms are spacious and in good condition. Well heated (sometimes too much heat). A bit of a walk from the town center but not too bad in the grand scheme of things. A bit pricier in comparison to other options downtown...

My wife and I stayed in the private room in Nakel Yenu for our stay in El Calafate. The room was spacious, clean, and had hot showers. The staff were great and gave us advice on walking the city, tours, and hosted a cookout on our last night. It's an easy 5-10 minute walk to the city center and since...

We went here because of a wrong booking at another hostel but we didn't regret it. The staff of this hostel is really friendly and helps you with everything. The rooms are fine, not luxury but you can't expect that of this price. At least the room and bathroom are clean. The breakfast is really nice compared to other breakfasts...
