Best wifi in all El Chalten. Lockers are big and spacious, great communal area, good showers and comfy beds. Only pain is cooking area and facilities in kitchen very busy and too small for the amount of people,


Although rooms were almost hotel standard, the kitchen/dining area is terrible. It can cater for large groups, but is poorly equipped. Eg 3 out of 8 hobs were not working when we stayed, and the cookers are so close together only a max of 2 groups could cook. There were 2 bowls and 3 saucepans for the whole hostel, and reception wouldn't give us any more. There is another (unused) large kitchen - why not open that during busy evening periods? Breakfast = few rolls & coffee - not worth 45 pesos!


well located, clean and nice. But real problem with wifi connexion (in all Chalten either) Good and nice place to be !


This place has nothing to offer but it's location, the staff are bunch of girls that were really not nice, the price in the internet is lower than their demanding at the recip (wifi bad like all of chalten but you can not judge theme.), nothing to eat or cook with in the kitchen, dirty bathrooms and they don't really have a luggage room so they throw your stuff at the entrance so anybody can take theme while your'e trekking. Search for another place if you are going to stay in chalten


The hostel is ok for few nights but you can't realy cook. Staff is not realy friendly. It's well placed in this very small city. L'hôtel n'est pas super, c'est chère pour ce que c'est. Le staff n'est pas souriant et agréable. Il est bien placé dans cette toute petite ville.


The rooms are nice, and you need a card to get in. The bathrooms are clean and spacious. The kitchen is big but there's absolutely nothing in it (just a couple of places and glasses; bring your own stuff or eat out). The wifi connection isn't too good, and the staff not super nice/helpful.


Dont count to cook here. Three pots and to stovrs for over one hundred people! Not a great atmosphere but very clean


À very clean hostel, good location, but the kitchen is not really equiped (no knives no glasses nor forks...)


Big lockers to put the entire bag, rooms with individual cards to open it, the kitchen had enough things to cook, the hostel is big, it seems a hotel. The only negative point it's that the hostel is a little bit far from the bus station (for a small city like chalten with a big bag). But it's nice so I would stay there again.
