Our hostel has a great panoramic view, from which you can see the hill by itself, the Torre (Tower) hill, the Del Bosque (Forest) range and the grand Fitz Roy.

Aylen-Aike is located by the riverside -De las Vueltas- having access to the small forest of ires a type of beech on its slope, and at the front, a wall made up of the mountain range of the Condors.

El Chaltn is a place with glaciers, mountains, rivers, forests, and with the giant Fitz of all times at the front. Patagonia and specially El Chaltn are places to visit, admire, love and respect, places to contact nature and feel really pleased... and to listen to the wind.

    Favourite hostel ever, loved the guy running it Sebastian - and the other lady too (sorry I don’t know her name). She made the beds every day and kept the hostel immaculately clean. Nice atmosphere too, everyone was really friendly and I’d recommend to anyone coming to El Chalten

    This place is amazing. The owner is very friendly and welcoming. There are always social groups in the huge downstairs area but the dorms are nice and quiet. He is also very knowledgeable of the local hikes and other activities.

    Great hostel in El Chalten. Like many places in town rooms/facilities are pretty basic, but they're cleaned daily, the showers are wonderfully hot, and the rooms are warm. There's tons of space in the kitchen and common area to socialize; a lot of people end up there in the evenings so its a great place to meet fellow travelers. Wifi is very slow (also characteristic of El Chalten, though you can sometimes find a few spots that are faster). Sebastian is super helpful and available when needed.

    Compared to the other hostel where I was in El Chaltén, The 2 basics were covered: Good showers (after run, hike, climb) and Good wifi (there is no 3g signal in el Chaltén). Fresh towels, bed done everyday, good vibes in the common area and top level knowledge from the host about the area and mountains around.

    Norma was taking care of the property as the season was coming to an end. Everything ran smoothly except they didn't have any possibility of taking card when you didn't have cash. It didn't allow for much flexibility so remember to come with enough money at hand. The hostel was clean and well equipped. Only thing to note was that its the only hostel i visited in Chile and Argentina that didn't provide any breakfast.
