Bariloche, Argentina is a buzzling touristic city near seven lakes and Vincente Perez Rosales National Park. It’s the door to Patagonia and a ski town at the same time. If you want to enjoy a familiar atmosphere at an economic price, go to Hostel El Gaucho.
The hostel is managed by the always smiling and joking Tito. He speaks some English and runs a big house with lots of room to hang out. There are two lounges and even two kitchens, one on each floor. The two kitchens are both fully equipped for your cooking needs and every morning there is a free breakfast with real coffee.
Furthermore, there is a large barbecue grill in the front yard which is in constant use. Even without Argentine steaks from the grill, the front yard is a great place to relax and read in the sun or check on the latest news on your wifi device.
If you feel more active than that, manager Tito can help you around with information on sights in Bariloche and the nearby national park. If you’re looking to do some trekking, you can rent out sleeping bags and tents at a cheap price from El Gaucho. Tito and his assistants can also arrange everything you need for kayak tours, bicycling, trekking, sky diving, canopy tours, and horse riding.
