This is a hostel for hostellers. It's the kind of place where young free-spirited world-travelling folk go as they find themselves. There's Lennon quotes on the wall and a communal guitar in the shared space. Each bedroom has a theme, after a musician. We stayed in the Jim Morrison room, with the man himself watching down on us as we slept.
It's good value for somewhere to sleep, and if you're looking to travel around and make friends with kindred spirits, this would be a great place for it.
The staff were super friendly.
The room itself, HUGE, not in great repair, but it's an old house and that's just how it goes. The bed wasn't particularly comfy for me, but I'm fussy when it comes to beds and pillows. You're staying in a town, so in the small hours, it's going to be noisy outside.
The hostel is at the top of a hill - I'm not exactly in Alberto Contador shape, so the walk back up to the place isn't one I'd want to do after a heavy meal, but that's more an indictment of the shape I'm in than the hostel - I only put this as an advice part for people such as myself who don't enjoy steep hill walks to get home. It's VERY close to the centre of Bariloche town, perhaps 3 or 4 small blocks (but again - hill).
