Folk Hostel is a place created by travellers for travellers; that’s why every part of it is practical, comfortable and clean. Being fresh and modern, with spacious, comfy and sunlit corners, the place invites you to travel both indoors and outdoors. The team is made up of young, enthusiastic hosts, knowing the region in detail, ready to provide you the options that match the experience you’re looking for. We’re Hostel life lovers and we’re eager to share a neat and pleasant community experience with you, based on respect and coexistance.


Located in one of the most southern spots of Argentina, El Calafate is more than the gateway to Los Glaciares National Park. It’s a lively tiny Patagonian city, surrounded by nature and packed with attractive bars and restaurants. Folk Hostel’s placed in a strategic area: a quite rural, chill-out neighbourhood, with views to the Calafate Hill, within a 10-minute walk away from the shops area and 200 meters away from the Bus Station, with groceries and drugstores nearby.

Rooms and Dorms

We offer varied room types, covering all needs and budgets. Shared dorms, of eight and four people, are equipped with super comfy mattresses and bed linen, huge lockers to be latched with your own padlock, and individual lights and sockets. Shared bathrooms, of dressing room type, are fitted with showers, washbasins, hair dryers and toilets; they’re practical and spacious, thus avoiding congestion. For the ones who prefer some privacy, there’re private rooms with shared bathroom, at an excellent price-quality ratio, and private ensuite rooms, equipped with bathtube, hair dryer, towels and complimentary toiletries. The facilities guarantee free hot water use and the adequate water pressure even at busy times of the day, meeting all our guests’ needs.

The underground heating keeps the temperature warm and homogeneous in all the areas, while windows let the light and fresh air in. In long summer days, the black-out curtains keep the light out and are vital for your pleasant rest.

Extras and Activities

We receive worldwide visitors, what generates a multicultural exchange spirit that spreads all over. The inner courtyard, shaltered from the wind and landscaped with native Patagonian species, is the place where to find a haven of relax and enjoy the sun, some good reading and vibrant company, or where to play the grill chef.

The shared kitchen is open for cooking from 12 to 23hs, and it’s wide and well-equipped. There’s a “Free Food” zone to encourage the food conscious use; you’ll find all the items to tag and store your goods, and differentiated containers for source waste separation and its later reuse and recycling. Display and discover your cooking skills, and feel free to inhabit the place!

As we know the destination demands energy and great enthusiasm, we begin the day with a varied healthy and nutritious home-made breakfast, in which each traveller is responsable for the cleaning of the used kitchenware.

The services we offer cover all your needs during your adventure in Patagonia: box lunches, drinks, tickets and excursions purchase, laundry service, transportation and touristic information. We’ll be a pleased to host you!

We’re working hand in hand with local authorities and other Hostel establishments, developing protocols to contain the COVID-19 pandemic. We’ll soon be ready to hosting you!

    Ein richtig tolles und gemütliches Hostel! Alle Mitarbeiter sind freundlich, kompetent und hilfsbereit. Das Hostel ist super sauber und warm, die Dorms groß, Betten bequem und mit Licht und Steckdose. Unter den Betten sind große verschließbare Schubfächer, es gibt Ablagen für Schuhe und Haken. Der Gemeinschaftsbereich ist gemütlich, die Küche super ausgestattet. Das Frühstück ist gut. In 5 Minuten ist man am Bus, in 10 in der Stadt! Eine Ablage direkt am Bett (v.a. oben) wäre noch toll!

    Direkt am Busbahnhof und trotzdem innerhalb von wenigen Minuten im Zentrum. Die Mitarbeiter sprechen sehr gut englisch und helfen bei jeder Kleinigkeit. Die Küche ist super doppelt ausgestattet, so dass zwei Gruppen gleichzeitig kochen können, ohne sich zu blockieren. Das Hostel wurde vor zwei Jahren gebaut, daher ist alles sehr neu und schön. Für Sauberkeit müsste hier ein zusätzliches Sternchen vergeben werden, es wird zweimal am Tag durchgewischt und extrem auf Sauberkeit geachtet.

    Wow! It was the cleanest hostel I’ve ever seen. Sure it’s just a year old but still just amazing. The staff is super nice and it’s super close to the bus station. El Calafate is so small, it makes no difference that you are „further“ away from the city center. I would recommend it to everybody!!

    The Folk Hostel is a great place, besides the kitchen everything is very clean. The kitchen is mostly clean, depending who used it before ;-) Can be quite crowded there, so you need to wait for a while until you find a free spot to cook. The common area is very relaxing and has a lot of space. Every dorm bed has a huge looker under the lower bed and a light and USB charger. The Hostel is not in the heart of the city, but this is what we knew before.

    Nahe beim Busterminal, Sauber, jedoch die Zimmer recht Ringhörig, Lüftung quitschte durch die Nacht was nicht so toll war. Mitarbeiter nicht sehr motiviert und alles recht unpersönlich.
