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.

Although this has overtones of Donald the Black Stranger, I have to wonder if it's true, because if it is, I owe him a big debt for bailing out a complete stranger several times ...

Man did we laugh.
I was so happy when I finished the circuit and we all went out for a beer and got some Patagonian Chocolate.
For dinner we went to a place friends recommended. They said we should be there early as you can't make a reservation and it's getting busy right after the opening at 8pm. They were right! When we arrived at 7.45 there were already people ...
... faces in front of the refugio. (Look for the tiny people in the photos!) These people were so impressive, climbing hundreds of meters. That evening we made awesome camp spaghetti and had a bottle of wine (or two, it is Argentina after all). More stargazing ensued, with great excitement and pleasure.
It was cold and windy that night, so everyone was wearing their Northface/Patagonia/Mountain Hardware down or primafill jackets, beanies, gloves, and headlamps as ...
... On the way back we get talking to a couple from Skipton.
For evening meal we go the Parilla again. The steak is so good and cheap!

Catch a local bus again and get off at the chairlift at Cerro Cempanario. Bus 6 pesos each. We meet the same couple from Skipton on the bus. They get off at the same place but they are hiring mountain bikes The chairlift ...
