Nice place in the center of El Calafate very close to the busstation. Owner is super friendly and helpfull. The common area has a great atmosphere and you can get cheap meals. Also a kitchen available.
Las Cabanitas is really nice, we had a small house for us. The kitchen is a gas stove, but you can use the stuff from the kitchen of the owners. The Breakfast is really good, cereals, bread, jam, warm milk, ...
Las Cabanitas is the perfect place to stay in El Calafate. Good location, very friendly family who runs the hostel, super clean and a pleasent athmosphere. Breakfast is great, different marmelades, selfmade bread, media lunas and cornflakes is a good variety. The little cabanitas, small houses with privat bathroom are the best choice. You feel a little bit like home with your own house. Our stay was very nice and we enjoyed a lot - thanks!
I can't speak highly enough of Las Cabanitas. The value for money is excellent, the location is handy for central El Calafate, and the facilities (especially taking into account the price are great). However, what really makes this a fantastic place to stay is Gerardo, the host, and his family. They all went out of their way to make us welcome - from keeping me some dinner as I arrived on a late flight from Buenos Aires, to looking after our stuff while we did the W Trail in Chile. Brilliant

We stayed in one of the little bungalows for a night and we would really recommend it. The bungalow waa really cute and set in a lovely location. The location is very handy for the main street and bus station. The staff were really helpful and arranged transport to the glacier and to el chalten for us.
Met our needs but was nothing spectacular and was not that cheap as far as hostel prices and amenities received. WiFi in main room only, limited kitchen use, small bathrooms, no lockers, free breakfast (toast). Main plus was good location to main downtown street.
We had a great stay here and loved the cute little cabins!
Las Cabañitas is a nice place to stay at when visiting El Calafate. The bus terminal is very close and you can reach the center of the town with a 10-minute-walk. The owner is a friendly and helpful guy who also prepares an early breakfast if the guests have to be ready for an excursion.
