Periko’s Youth Hostel in Bariloche, Argentina
Bariloche in Argentina is where Patagonia’s famous nature meets the amenities of a sizeable city. Being surrounded by a national park with seven lakes and countless mountains, Bariloche is a great base for day tours.
Periko’s Youth Hostel is a friendly and modern place to make your basecamp in the center of Bariloche, Argentina.
Bariloche is a skiing center in wintertime and Periko’s was built with that in mind. The wooden interior reminds you of a ski hut in the mountains. And like in a ski hut, the huge common room encourages socializing among the many international guests.
That said, Periko’s is nothing like a ski hut when it comes to facilities like the bathrooms and the kitchen. The whole place is very modern and the kitchen is fully equipped. Of course they also have Wifi and computers with internet, as well as a big screen TV with a sizable DVD collection.
The hostel is located right in the center of things, only three blocks from the Centro Civico and the main tourist area. The location is central enough to walk everywhere and also good for catching a local bus to one of the nearby mountains.
If you’d rather see those mountains on an organized tour, Periko’s offers several one-day sightseeing tours. If you want to be more active than that, they can also provide you with kayaking, hiking tours, rafting and horse riding. In wintertime, they also rent out ski and snowboards.
And if you just want to relax, grab a book or a beer and hang out in one of the lounges or in the big garden with hammock and BBQ grill.
