Cafayate's Best Hostels

Cafayate's Best Hostels
With a pleasant climate all year round and some incredible Andean landscapes nearby, the small, wine-centric town of Cafayate is a must for a stopover during your trip through the Northwest of Argentina. Time stands still in certain parts of the city with its preserved cobblestone streets and indigenous traditions and influence. This town provides visitors the opportunity to discover Quechan and Andean culture and to experience the best drives in Argentina including the scenic Quebrada de Cafayate or Quebrada de Humahuaca, great mountain scenery, and adventure. Cafayate has a lovely main square, a peaceful attitude, and some excellent restaurants and guesthouses. There is a wine museum and tons of vineyards just next to the town that are reachable by car, bike, and a few of them even on foot.

The facilities are well kept to ensure you stay in a clean, pleasant and pretty home. You will find all of the standard amenities of a hostel, including free breakfast, free WIFI, towels included, a book exchange, a ceiling fan, cable TV, laundry facilities, bicycle hire and self-catering facilities. Accommodation types include double rooms with shared or private bathrooms and rooms with 3 to 5 beds with private bathrooms. There is a pretty garden with grapevines (typical in Cafayate homes), large communal spaces and rooms with a view on the mountains and the central patio, in which you can enjoy the sun that normally shines 340 days a year in this pretty town. Rustyk Hostal is located centrally in Cafayate, only two blocks from the central plaza, in an old colonial house built by the owner's grandparents.
