Property Description

Hostel del Lago is the first private work in El Chalten inaugurated in 1990. It is located in the center of town. 50 meters from the central square and 300 from the bus station.
Hostel del Lago has a large common space equipped with armchairs, TV, books, board games. Wifi.
We have 2 shared kitchens equipped with refrigerator, microwave, kettle, toaster and various kitchen utensils. Each of the kitchens has a dining area with tables and breakfast bars for a great lunch or a delicious dinner.
The hostel has 5 shared rooms of 6 beds each with bathroom inside the room. For your safety the rooms have a key. Each room has 1 locker per person for important things. The bathroom has a shower and hot water.
The rooms are heated as are the common spaces.
The rate includes linen and warm clothes. DO NOT TOWELS.
We have free parking and a large park with a beautiful view of the Fitz Roy.
The reception is open from 7 am to 12 pm, but the rooms are independent of the administration space.
We have security cameras in common spaces and corridors.
Check in is from 3 pm and check out of the rooms is at 10 am.
You can use the common room, or luggage storage to wait for your check in.
After your check out you can stay in the hostel until 3pm.
After that time, if you wish to continue using the facilities, except for the room, you must pay an extra fee. Since after 3 pm it is considered as an additional half board.
If you have a bus at night or in the afternoon and do not want to pay or leave at the hostel after 3 pm you can leave your luggage for free in the reception storage to be able to perform activities freely in the chalten and then remove it when you need it .

If your desire is to make several days of hiking after your check out and leave your luggage in the reception storage you must pay an extra fee.

    Me and my friend had an amazing time at this hostel. Staff was super friendly and recommended us a great restaurant with delicious steaks. The beds were very comfy and bathroom clean. Would love to come back there in the future!

    Well located in the center of town. The kitchen where all the dorms are located is too small for the amount of guests using it. I suggest you use the one in the main lobby. A bed seem to cause skin eruptions but nothing in the other room. There was no water pressure in the shower only a few drops of water at a time.

    Okey hostel. The room and building in general was freezing. They didn’t turn on any heat even though they had oven i the room. Cold shower as well. The staff was kind of rude.

    Simple and good enough for the price. Except you definitely HAVE to leave the hostel after your check out time, you cannot even sit in the common area at all afterwards which isn’t a huge deal but a little weird. And I’m sure doesn’t happen a lot but my friends and I got into a heated conversation with a staff member/manager over it which was ridiculous.

    As i got the room the bathroom wasvery dirty and on the walls full of mold. I told the staff they cleaned it immediately. Very friendly and helpful staff. The number 7 room which i stayed in was very loud cuz of the street and the club on the other side of the street. The beds are very shaky and the doors are very loud. Each time the people went to the bathroom or out/ inside of the room i woke up despite earplugs. Good kitchen and lobby. And several trees full of cherries.

    I have NEVER had an owner speak to me in such a disgusting and disrespectful way. We weren’t aware of a late check out fee and refused to pay as it was not communicated to us until after spending half the day in the reception. Had we been told we would’ve gone elsewhere. They spoke down to us, insulted in Spanish and called us idiots, demanded we leave immediately, threatened to blacklist us and accused my partner of “staring” at staff. All this in front of other clients too. DO NOT RECOMMEND
