Where to stay in Ushuaia

Despite its nickname, Ushuaia is certainly not the end of the world when it comes to finding comfortable lodgings--as long as you plan ahead and reserve your room in advance. Hotels and hostels are equally crowded here during the peak season (October to March), so it's advisable to arrive with a solid reservation in hand. If you choose to visit during the winter (June to mid-September), expect to find many establishments closed for the season.

  • Not bad if you've got some time to kill but not what I would call a must-see, if your time in Ushuaia is limited then probably skip it. Was baffled to find a stuffed example of castor canadensis but later learned the story of why they're in the neighbourhood and what troublemakers they've been, giving me a bizarre feeling of Canadian patriotism...
  • Very interesting place to go
  • Worth a visit if you're a tourist in Ushuaia
  • Have a look!
  • Good place too see...
