wonderfull place to stay! Unfortunate we could only spend the half of our stay here because off the end of the season
No frills hostel, basic facilities were all there. You don`t want to walk on the floor without your shoes on. The kitchen was very basic, a bit like a camping kitchen. WIFI was slow, no lockers but it wasn`t a problem because they gave us a dorm to ourselves! By far the cheapest accommodation we could find in El Chalten.
Really friendly helpful staff and they have hair dryers! Great value for money. Bring food with you as the supermarkets in El Chalten are expensive and don't have much.
A good hostel, but nothing special, however, this seems to be the case in El Chaltén. I would recommend this place because the kitchen is pretty good, but gets crowded in the evening when everyone returns from hiking.
Bare bones hostel with beds a serviceable kitchen and wifi. They an give you advice on treks and other things todo, but the national park offic behind the bus terminal is your best source of up to date info about the park. A good place to stay if you're on a tight budget
muy buena onda! i really liked this hostel. its close to the busstation, clean and the owner is helpful, friendly and explains you everything you like to know about el chalten and the hikes. the only thing is, the dorms are very small and there is not enough space for the lugagge.

The owner was incredibly friendly! Moderately clean, nice-sized showers, great location! WIFI was definitely better than other hostels in El Chalten.
The kitchen was enough, people chilled there in the evening after a day of walking which created a nice atmosphere. The showers were hot and powerful, and there was never a long wait for them or the toilets. The front door was never locked and the bedrooms didn't lock, so security wasn't great. No lockers and no breakfast. Bring food with you if possible, El Chalten doesn't have the greatest selection of supermarkets. The guy who ran the hostel was friendly and helpful. It was clean.
Very nice owner! Location is great because its 30meters away from the bus station...and there is no real center in el chalten...
This place is bare bones basic, a place to sleep without anything special. The owner was great, very friendly and a fun guy to talk with about Argentina. The place is pretty small and there isn't much room to spare in the kitchen or bathrooms (there are only two for the whole place). There is not breakfast either. If you're looking for a decent, cheap, stay, this is your place. It's right in front of the bus terminal! Net is slow everywhere in El Chalten = satellite.
Friendly staff. Warm and clean. No lockers.
Fantastic location opposite the bus station. Staff helpful with advice for treks and places to eat. Powerful, hot showers and clean bathrooms. Dorms are fine, a little small maybe but beds were comfy. Only two lockers in our 4 bed dorm which were in use when we arrived but we weren't overly concerned as we could lock our bags. Overall good value for money and would definitely recommend this hostel
It s Nice basic hostel but what makes the difference is the kindliness and helpfulness of the owner. Very cheap.
Enjoyed our stay at this hostel, the atmosphere was great and was a small hostel. However, there wasn't much communal space, such as a common room. The lack of space did mean that everyone had to communicate more in the kitchen; so that was a good thing. Dorms were clean and comfortable but the downstairs ones were fairly small.
If you only need a bed to sleep and don't want to spend money, this is your place. The place was the cheapest in El Chaltén, but it is not clean, although they change the toilet paper and the trash basket very often. They have no lockers and the linen is very old and not so clean. The receptionist sometimes is not there and you need to wait for him, but he is very cool guy and helpful. They are very near the bus station (3 minutes by foot) and some trails.
Very nice and easy staff, clean and just in front of the bus station! Cheap and good value. Tiny hostel though. Recommended!
It's a very basic hostel convenient tlh located right across the bus station, but a short walk from everything else (the town is tiny. Our four bed dorm didn't have lockers, but neither the other guests nor staff made it seem insecure. Yes, the place needs windows that open, but it wasn't that bad and pretty clean. The front desk guy was really the best. The kitchen is also a plus.
very warm, I love it
