Well-located, well-maintained hostel about four blocks north of the main street. Parking for cars and motos in their own lot behind the hostel. Pleasant common areas - lounge with sofas and a breakfast area with a kettle and microwave. I paid 8,800 for one person in a twin room, which at current “blue” rates is about $34, which doesn’t seem bad for Ushuaia. Breakfast is a reasonable coffee and croissants. It’s well heated. You may have to open a window if you’re not a hot-house plant. This place seems to divide opinion but I stayed four nights and I’d happily stay here again.

Nice campground next to a soccer field. We went in rainy season so we’re very happy with the shelter! Suitable for 3 cars even with rooftop tent. Shower and toilets were clean, you have a refrigerator with freezer and a place to cook and sit.

Stayed here for 3 nights; everything practical that should be said hass already been said but I do want to comment and make clear that this spot can get very windy, the locals up the hill definitely don’t want you here and there is a LOT of glass on the right side where the MTB trial starts. But otherwise it’s a decent place to crash near Santa Barbara only 20 mins from downtown. The road up has some short turns, but the views are amazing. Later I stayed further up in Los Padres National Forest in the hills near Goleta which you can get to by taking the 154 up (which is a lot easier to drive up) and I wished I’d stayed there for all of my nights. A lot less wind with the same conditions, no angry people glaring at you, no glass, still amazing views. Up to you!

we spent one night here, however it is quite visible from the street and it is full of trash (some cats were playing with the trash during the night). there is a spot a bit more inward but not with bigger cars and rigs, nor rooftoptent would have space - plus also even more trash :/ in the morning, when we were about to leave, some locals were coming to this spot to smoke shisha.

stayed here for 3 nights, loved it! Clean toilet with plenty of toilet paper. Picnic table with pavilion, fire ring, and all the spots were flat for parking. A couple of trail options start at this campground parking lot too. We got the last spot on a Friday night, but the other 4 sites are far enough apart that noise from any other group didn't make it to us. Would definitely come back again!

The campsite is very simple, with old bathroom, toilet….. All site has 220 power and water. We were here on 4 Nov by ourselves. But way to expensive as it costed 80 real for 2 person and a 6meter motorhome. Internet very weak……

Fantastic service, if in a big rig (height garage 10.8 max) park on the far side away from the drive thru and they will do the oil change with a cart. Do an extra safety check as well as a standard, fantastic 👏 👍

Parked in the back lot on the right where it says RVs. No hook ups. Well lit lot with regular security patrols. Were not planning on gambling so we were far from the casino. I saw a few rigs parked closer. They must have been going inside as well. Super quiet!

Great beach location. Actual spots with tables for about 8 vehicles, but many more can be accommodated. Bathroom is essentially out of commission, no water. Lots of dogs, but they are nice.

Good spot to get close to elephants. Staff friendly. The place looks a bit tired. In need of some maintenance and new energy.
Fine for an overnight stop.

Its 24 km from town to here. After maybe 2 or 3 km the washboards start. We turned around after 7 km because we had the feeling this would continue for the other 17 km. The road can be done by any car but be prepared to be shaked around.

Great place. Not sure what happened to the last commenter but the host Dan is about as friendly as they come. Still $20 for dry camping, $40 for non-member serviced site (no sewer), $30 for members.

The dry camping area is beside a graveyard that is part of the jeep tour, it can be a bit annoying and repetitive when they roll in beside you and repeat the same info. This is mostly on weekends, definitely quieter through the week.

As described a great place to stay and recoup after a hot drive. We were delayed by several days and kept moving our arrival date but Brad promptly answered all whatsapps. Ruth and Brad are great hosts, know the area well and give excellent travel advice. Fishing excursions, fishing equipment on offer and plenty of free fishing knowledge! The view over the lake is stunning. Small campsite but has everything you need. Clean ablutions with hot shower heated by donkey boiler. Basic comfortable chalets and 2 tents as well. Well stocked bar and they also serve delicious homestyle meals. 3 en-suite chalets and tents. We stayed for 2 nights but if time allowed we would have stayed for longer.

Best place To stay overnight, just à minit walk from Beale st. Where wonderfull shows go on. The only thing...pay with your crédit card at the post not to the guy who help you to park your van.. He'll ask you to pay cash for the parking plus tip...😂 he got us in his tricky way to help...part of the story !!! Si cost us double fée but even worth while To stop there

Spent one night here. We asked for permission first. A little noisy as there are lots of trucks coming and going all night. It was okay for one night.

It's true. Probably the best mechanic on the continent, but definitely the most dedicated we've met on our travels.

Wr were up on 3800m in San Antonio when we got a leak in break fluid pipe down by the wheel. Local mechanic up there couldn't fix it and even made it worse. We found Guillermo on iOverlander and called him. He talked with the local guy up there and suggested how to close off that leaking pipe at the ABS system and it worked. We safely got to the valley. Without that we'd have to get ourselves towed down.

Then, even though he was very busy, saw us the very next morning and with his brother worked the whole day just on our brakes and got it fixed.

We're still in touch and check up if everything is in order.

I'd really recommend Guillermo for really anything that you have to get done, as he speaks English, is very friendly and dedicated and will fix but any gear you might have (check his Instagram, it's cool)!

Do note that he charges by an hour (not per job). For my opinion, it's a fair price.
