A wonderful stay! Everyone was so lovely, helpful and welcoming.


very clean place. the downside for me was that it was impossible to open a window to get some air. also hot water for tea and coffee was available only at the time of breakfast.


We had a very nice and peacefull stay. Breakfast is good and the room are very clean. The only little thing is the low bandwith wifi connexion, maybe due to the location of El Chalten.


Good place for staying and great staff that always ready to help. In my opinion there were few points for improvement:: 1. Using the kitchen by the guest 2. Low water pressure in the shower w/ non stable water temprature


Small rooms, the beds were a bit packed in, but perfect for a one night stay before a hiking trip. The water pressure was not great, but at least it was hot. The staff could not have been nicer. We missed our first bus and they stayed up late to let us in. Very friendly. Good breakfast with the staples: coffee, juice, bread and jam.


Lovely small place, with just 5 rooms. Ver friendly & helpful host, with great tips where to go in the (small) town.


It was, by far, the best hostel I ever had, the owner is so sweet and gentle and all the staff very helpfull. The breakfast is great and all the rooms very nice. I definitely recommend!


Staff was helpful and very kind. The place is very close to one of the important trails at the Chalten. The rooms were ver clean and comfortable. A good place to spend a night or two.


Really nice family run b+b. Good room that was cleaned everyday and a very friendly owner who helped us booking trips etc. Good breakfast too!


The hostel turned out to be a B&B which was a welcome break from 21/2 months of hosteling. We had a comfortable on suite room apart from the beds which were a little on the small side. The breakfast was good and the location of the hostel was excellent as it is close to the walks, town centre and bus station. The guy in charge was a little reserved but that might have been due to a language barrier. Altogether we were pleased with our stay even though it was slightly more expensive than other h
