This hostel is a good value for its price. It has a beautiful lake view from the common room and the staff is super friendly.
We found that it had little kitchen facilities and there only was one shower and toilet on the second floor, which could get crowded in high season. Apart from that, we would definitely recommand this nice and clean hostel, well located in Bariloche.

... ice cold lakes, enjoyed the mountain views and had fantastic beer and empanadas at a local brewery. The German heritage here was obvious and the whole daytrip a must do. After making fun of a notoriously lying Australian girl, we returned to the city. The next day I had white water rafting on the schedule. The group was just me and 7 Argentineans who could not speak English at all. Despite the cold water in my face and some jumps into the 12 degree ...
... bar as quickly as possible. Highly amusing nonetheless.
As for Wednesdays adventures, the two of us hired a car and did the Ruta de los siete lagos/route of the seven lakes. It was only 50 pounds each so why not. Plus, the hire company had run out of smaller cars so we got a bigger, better car for the same price. VW golf country. So an estate car for two of us and a backpack apiece. A tad superfluous too need and I swear everyone kept looking in the back for ...
... admittedly I would have probably been faster and therefore had more time to go off and explore whilst leaving the bike at one of the carpark areas. That's just a theory though - as I said before, I would likely have had to walk parts of it as my hill-climbing abilities on a bike are not great...!! From this experience, I'd definitely say that Bariloche is best explored with a car. Public bus transport is good and frequent, but very limited in terms of where ...
