Hostel 41 Below – Bariloche, Argentina

This was a small, cozy hostel. It wasn’t big but it had huge character. Its NZ run so you are guaranteed a pretty fantastic time. Its located 2 blocks from the Centro Civico and a block away from a supermarket. Ideal!

The hostel from the street.

The staff are really helpful and awesome. They organised a birthday party one night we were there including the making of “Empanada’s”. Plus helpful tips on what to do and see around the area. They also got us the 2 for 1 rafting deal.

Lounge and Dining room.

The rooms are a bit on the small side. But after the thin mattresses of milhouse, these were nice and comfy. Unless you have an annoying room mate who cannot turn his alarm off!

Rooms – cozy enough for ya?

Downstairs is a lounge room area and kitchen. The kitchen is small, but you can cook a mean feed there. The lounge room has comfy bean bags and lounges. As well as a massive big table for eating and drinking.

The lounge/dining room is the place to socialise.

The only real downside here was the showers – communal showers. Its not ideal, but you still get a warm shower. And that darn internet connection.

Safety wise, its locked at night and has a guy watching out for any would be thief’s. Security lockers are available.

As I said, its a really small place, yet its a great functioning hostel. The smallness, means you meet and get to actually know your housemates. And you can bring in beer/wine/drinks from the supermarket down the road.

I booked this hostel through Hostel Bookers.
