Las Cabanitas is exactly what you'd expect: tiny cabins in a backyard. The cabins themselves are decent and have good heating, but each is a stand-alone. There is no common area, and even during continental breakfast you feel like you're intruding in someone's living room and it's a bit awkward. If there was a better common are to relax, i think that would be a huge improvement, as this is a small town and if travelling alone it's impossible to meet people.


My wife and I loved the private cabin with lavender in the garden, which also had nice picnic areas. Gerardo and his family are very warm and charming hosts. He was very responsive by email prior to our visit and set up a Perito Morino tour for us. The cabins are quiet and are very conveniently located close to downtown and the bus station. The communal area is large and we enjoyed having a laundry service. The only down side was the length of time it took hot water to arrive at the shower.

Nice family run hostel, literally living side by side with the family. Great breakfast with fresh homeade bread and croissants. Decent enough wifi, nice garden out back to sit and enjoy some wine or beer on a nice day. Price was higher than at bigger hostels such as america del sur or hostel nakel yenu, by about 40 pesos. Very quiet place great to get some rest after trekking.
