Es ist sehr bequem mit Caltur-busse von / nach El Calafate zu fahren, weil der Hostel ist die letzte/ erste Haltstelle in El Chalten und man braucht nicht die ganze Stadt mit dem Gepaeck durchzugehen.
Very unpleasant stay here. We were asked for payment seconds after walking through the door before even putting our bags down. Breakfast is 80pesos a day (free everyone else in the area), a towel rental is 50pesos per day (?!?), and if you want to stay even one minute after checkout (even to use the toilet or leave your bags) there is a 50peso charge. There were also very aggressive signs throughout "no talking after 11pm - we need our sleep!!" The only good part was the friendly staff.
over our 3 night stay we had many problems. Including noticing that the staff never once looked up from the desk to see who was entering the hostel. The locker key is attached to the room key which they ask you to leave at reception when you go out for the day. This is a very bizzare and unsafe idea, why would you leave your locker key containing all your valuables with strangers??? The kitchen is big but lacks facilities for the number of people.
