We are a new hostel in Santa Rosa de Calamuchita. Our hostel is in the country side in the beautiful Calamuchita Valley. We are 80kms from Cordoba city and en-route to Mendoza, Rio Cuarto, Alta Gracia and Cordoba. The hostel is 300m from the Santa Rosa river. You can swim in the river or lounge at the 'beach'. Or take your hammock and swing it in a tree at the river. There are a lot of opportunities for hiking, sightseeing and relaxing. In the evening you can visit the nightclub and mingle with the local people. Or why not rent bycicles and explore the country side?
What do we offer you?
A hostel with a difference. We are not a big city hostel. While visiting us you will become part of our family and our day- to- day activities. We cook meals on request and our specialities are a mixture of the Russian, South African and Argentinian food.
Our rooms are new, modern and spacious. All rooms have ensuite bathrooms and hot water. Bedding and linen are included. Rooms have a magnificent view of the mountains, At night the sky is so clear you can pick the stars from the sky.
Breakfast consists of facturas and medialunas or eggs, sausages and bread...you choose!
Our common room is fully equipped for cooking, an LCD monitor for watching movies and a large library of DVD's and books. It also has a fire place for those cold winter nights.
Everything in our hostel was made by local people. We pride ourselves in the fact that we support our local community.
