    The woman at the front desk (she might own the hostel) is one of the friendliest, most accomodating person I’ve come across on my travels and really made us feel at home at the cozy little hostel. She was very helpful with day planning (make sure you know some Spanish) and made an amazing breakfast with her own cooked bread! Highly recommend

    So lovely to stay here. The woman running the hostel is amazing. So friendly! My friend fell in the mud and her jacket got very dirty and she washed it for free. Amazing breakfast. Loved staying here!

    Thiamalu was a great place to stay while we visited El Chalten. We stayed in the common area all day while we waited out the stormy weather before our trek. The family running the Hostel were very helpful, and helped us out with a couple things we needed around town. The rooms were newly renovated and very clean. It was great to come here and stay in a comfy warm bed after we spent a couple cold, cold nights on the mountain. Great Place!

    Comfortable bed, clean bathroom, excellent shower. Delicious breakfast. We got most of our information about hikes from visitor centre when we reached El Chalten, so didn’t enquire too much here. They also let us leave our bags while we went on a day hike after checking out. Overall positive stay.

    We had a lovely stay at Thiamalu guest house. The rooms are nice (first time we had a queen bed to share in South America) and the shower is fantastic, which is helpful after a long day of trekking. The hostess is very friendly and speaks some English. The breakfast is amazing: eggs, toast, croissants, yogurt, coffee, fruit, juice, the works! Overall I recommend this place.

    Ale (the woman at the reception) is the nicest! She helped us with everything we needed, and even more. She offered tea at night, medialunas at breakfast, explained about the trails, gave us a great tip to start the Fitz Roy trek at hostel del pilar, and some more. The atmosphere is more of a hotel than a hostel though. Private rooms, no kitchen or place to hang out. Great option for families and couples!

    Very simple rooms, but spectacularly clean. A little further away from most restaurants and bars than other hostels in the area but the whole town is walkable. The host was incredible accommodating. She printed bus tickets for us and prepared us a breakfast the night before we had an early bus. The breakfast itself is delicious and plentiful. Definitely a more low-key lodging option but was suitable for our time in El Chalten.

    Nice enough place to stay and walk to trail heads and the main part of town and the bus station. No real kitchen or hang out space - if you are looking for something social. Amazing breakfast!
