the staff is very helpful with everything (booking trips, information about El Calafaté, etc...) , it's a family who runs the place. The breakfast is good and if you order lunchbox it's very tasteful. I had the feeling they trey the guest a little bit the feeling of home.


I loved the place and thought the people were great. They treat everyone well. The cabins would do well to have individual gas hot water tanks as it takes fifteen minutes of running water to get it to turn hot. I found it charming and loved the family who run the place.

No wifi in the cabins outside, takes 10 min. to get hot water from the shower, cabins cannot get hot upstairs, security of cabin doors and windows is very questionable, no sockets upstairs in cabin, on weekend nights quite noisy from nearby parties and youth crusing with their cars all night, middle of every night lots of buses departing from nearby bus terminal, bright lights from next door tennis court shine into cabins all night long.

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!
