Booked a twin room as at the time was cheaper than two dorm beds in all the hostels! Was clean, facilities were fine for two nights stay and the breakfast was pretty standard. I'd say good value for money in an overpriced town.
Location is good, 3 blocks from bus terminal and 2 blocks from main street. Breakfast is good - cereal, yoghurt, juice, tea, coffee, bread (toaster), croissant, jam and butter. Computer available for use, Wifi worked in communal area but not in our room. Our room had a heater and there was plenty of hot water. The owner is friendly and helpful. Meals are available in the evenings. Our room was a 2 storey cabin with double bed upstairs with access by steep stairs/ladder.
The manager here is superb. He is extremely helpful. My friend left her camera on the transfer bus from Torres Del Paine to El Calafate. The manager arranged for the phone to be delivered to his hostel, for our pickup, on our return from El Chalten. I am very grateful. Mark.
Las Cabanitas is a great place to stay in El Calafate. It's close to the main street and close to the busstation. The owner is friendly and helpfull. We arrived in the middle of the night after a busdelay and still we got a warm welcome. It`s clean and the breakfast is great. The housekeeper, an old lady, is really doing a great job!!
Lovely place. Owner very happy to help and the cabins were lovely. Loved the lavender outside and the litte room in the annex of cabins.

This is your old-school hostel, just as they should be. There's no bar or blaring music, just friendly and helpful staff, homely common areas, the standard breakfast fare included in the rate and the option of an evening meal most nights for those who'd like to avoid the tourist traps. If it's the traps you're after the main drag is a short stroll away. We stayed in an A-frame and only wished we could have stayed longer.
Really nice cabanitas for a good night sleep. Liked Gerardo's cooking skill.
