Close to bus terminal, grocery shops etc. nice common area and good vibe, met loads of people, nice little chill out area too. Good value for money. Marked down for: no lockers (although I felt my stuff was safe anyway), bathrooms could have been cleaner, some construction going on, only 1 staff bit he was really nice & helpful. I think he had been left on his own to cope!! Bad wifi - but its all bad in el chalten. Warm & friendly place
The hostel is basic but has everything you need. It would be nice to have a big window in the kitchen so you can see the mountain white your cooking and having dinner.
They r renovating everything!! So it's all new, showers, kitchen, toilets. It's a small hostel but very nice. People who works there r really helpful and kind. I definitely would stay again here.
Good hostel with fantastic service although no large common area apart from around the kitchen and slightly expensive compared to other places in the area. Having said this the place was very clean, warm and comfortable after a big day of hiking. Wifi never works but I think it's the same everywhere in El Chalten. The young guy on reception was always very friendly with a smile and he kept the place immaculate. Don't shy away from the hostels front appearance- it's much nicer inside.
We found the beds to be comfortable, the showers hot, and the kitchen (although small) well equipped. Not much more you can ask for in a remote location like El Chalten.
Depending on what trails you are doing the hostel can be close or far way from the starting point.The staff wasn't really that helpful,but this was because their English wasn't that good, and my Spanish being very poor. I stayed in a dorm upstairs, and can only tell about my dorm,but it was impossible to open the windows and we actually couldn't bring fresh air into the room. There were no lockers either. It doesn't take much for this hostel to improve, but now is just about average.
This is a budget option for the town. The location is good, right by the bus station and a couple markets though the town is so small you cant really be in a bad location. The place is half hostel and half deserted building with most of the upper floor in ruins. The WiFi doesn't really work but that seems normal for the town. There is a small kitchen that can be used but it is often very crowded. No keys for the rooms so you stuff is not secure Not a terrible place but you get what you pay for.
Unlike expected from the outside a very nice hostel. No lockers in the rooms but the staff took my valuables while we were hiking.
The appearance from the outside is not good, but inside is much better: simple but very clean and well done. I really liked their attention to some details, such as a power socket for each bed, fix hair dryers in the bathrooms, private bathrooms and showers (good ones, btw) downstairs, etc. The kitchen is small but well equipped and it's located in front of the bus station, which I thought I was good thing (even in a small town like El Chalten).
Although the hostel building looked bad and half of it was being renovated, it was very cozy inside, easy to meet other travelers and had a small but homey kitchen.
One of the cheaper hostels online but the are cheaper ones if you walk around. Pretty nice hostel anyways and right next to the bus station. Very clean, nice showers and spacious kitchen.
Good place to stay in Chalten. Quite cheap compared to other options. Kitchen wasn't amazing but did the job and the guy who was running it was very friendly. Literally opposite the bus station which is handy
This hostel looks very run down and dodgy from the outside, but on the inside it's great! Rooms were clean, beds were comfy, nice shower, clean toilets. The kitchen is cleaned every morning and has great tables for everyone to sit and talk. It's nice and quiet at night because everyone gets up early to hike. Only downside is, no breakfast included, but it is also a very cheap hostel so that makes sense. Don't judge the book by its cover!
Very nice staff. Right next to the bus station but if you want to go anywhere on the other end of town, its a walk. (But the town's not that big, so just do it.)
Very pleased that we choose to stay here. The staff were terrific. After we trekked for 4 days as well as letting us leave our luggage there they let us have a shower and hang around until our bus left that night. Awesome place!
Friendly stuff, close to the bus station, clean and quiet, wi-fi is very stow but there is a wi-if :-) it's bad in El Chalted does metter where you get it.
Nice hostel. I would stay there again, definitely. Take into account that there are 2 supermarkets near it, but one is expensive and the other is not very useful.
The hostel is small and nice. The dorms are fine, the batroom very nice and clean. The kitchen is a little small and the is no real commun area excpet the kitchen. It's very close from the bus station, wich is very convenient.
The hostel is very basic, but very clean. It's literally across the street from the bus station but far from the rest of the town. It doesn't have any lockers, but it's part of the way they think things should be so. I stayed here for a night & then found another hostel closer in town and the starts of the treks.
