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.

Afterwards we took a walk to the main square, Centro Civico, to the tourist information and then went to the Via Bariloche office to buy bus tickets back to Chile on Tuesday.

... for another swim on the beach.

We started off back to the hostel at 5pm, half way back we got a flat tyre, all out the van again. The other rafting company that we had previously collided with in the river drove past ...
... they have successfully grown in large groupings and to such heights.
Arriving back at the port there were no taxis available so we had to walk up the road where some friendly tourists offered for us to use their bus cards, but luckily a taxi appeared from the plush hotel. Back at the campsite the cook group had prepared a delicious Spaghetti Bolognese which we devoured before heading to bed, ready for our early start in the morning continuing our journey ...
... found an outdoor shop a few blocks up the road and managed to organise a tent and a couple of sleeping bags. Derek already had a tent so he was already sorted. We didn't have any cooking utensils, pots or pans, but neither does Bear Grylls when he is out in the wild so one times leather man and flick knife was going to have to suffice. All we now had to do was hope that the rainy weather would clear. Shortly after getting back to the hostel it started to pour down, and ...
