I Keu Ken: excellent ... This hostel was of a very good standard. The staff was the best one we came across in south america. They were very helpful. Clean rooms, good views of the lake, kitchen very well equipped. It is 10 minutes walk from the bus station.

Description - Hostel

Hi everybody! We are waiting for you overviewing a wonderful Argentino Lake scenery. Sitting in our couch with the fire place warming up, may be chatting with new friends and drinking Fernet & Coke, playing the guitar while BBQ gets ready, planning a super trip to some hidden place in the world, learning something new from this far-away-land or any other one... you will find US expecting YOU.

A warm welcome for a new friend, loads of information to share, and directions to give; so that you spend a great time and can feel at ease seizing your days here. We will worry about your buses and excursions and enternainment choices; you will just seat back and relax, may be at internet, may be reading one of our books, may be writing your diary, may be meeting new friends...

We are very found of cooking, so, in our kitchen you will find all you need to teach us how to prepare a typical dish of your country or your favorite one (don´t think you will leave the hostel without learning how to make empanadas!).
And so much more... well, here we are, close to the main street and even closer to the bus station. Just say when and we will go for you!!!

Ah! Have you ever tried mate? Well... there is always a first time for everything in life, isn´t it? Hope to meet you soon.
All the Best,
I Keu Ken Hostel
