Big hostel with a 24 hr restaurant meant that it was quite busy a lot of the time. For us this detracted from the atmosphere as there were few comfortable places to relax for the guests and it was almost as if we were living in a restaurant. Kitchen was terrible with only a handful of the stoves working and a very limited range of cooking utensils and crockery was supplied. Showers were good, beds were comfortable and wifi was great. Heating ran 24/7 which meant the rooms were far too hot.

Unfriendly impersonal (and way too big) hostel with noisy 24 hour restaurant. If you're on the ground floor then you have to go through doors almost into the restaurant to use the bathroom (so people in the restaurant see you in your PJs or when you come out of the shower!) minimal cutlery and no glasses for water etc. Overall I was very disappointed and changed hostel after my initial booking and the other hostel was amazing in comparison!!

Despite having an attached restaurant, the kitchens (there are 2) are not well equipped. Need to ask staff to borrow stuff (which is fine since I assume a lot of people take things to use for camping), but even the borrowed utensils are weak. But. .. it is super clean - they're cleaning around the clock. And showers are hot and plentiful. Staff is friendly. Having spoke with many other travelers, i think this is probably one of the better hostels in town, but don't expect much in el Chalte

This hostel is like the homemade spinach ravioli served at the restaurant. It's lots of work to make ravioli...and then they put canned spinach inside! A lot of money/effort went into this hostel originally. It's well designed, clean and the rooms and the restaurant are spacious. Then they didn't spend another dollar. The mattresses are older than some of the guests with no fitted sheets that fall off. Kitchen has ancient pans and like 7 spoons, 3 cups, no bowels, a broken can opener, etc.

Can't really say anything bad about this place! Lovely big restaurant/reception/entrance way. Nice rooms with big lockers and all very clean. Nice showers in a large 'locker room' type setup (but private showers!) which was good coz you need the room to change in and out of your boots/walking gear etc. As a wider point el chelten is great with lots of bars and good places to eat and great walks!

This place is literally a bus stop. It's a 24 hour restaurant and that's the main business. You even shower in the restaurant bathrooms. Two of the ladies that worked there was very rude and condescending, but to be fair the others were nice. Atmosphere is horrible because the common area is really just the restaurant.

A very clean and nice hostel! The internet isn't that great, but that is basically all over town.
