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.

    This hostel is a real gem in terms of atmosphere and staff. It almost makes up for the shower, which was hot but had no pressure which means you end up getting cold anyway. We later found out that the showers used by people camping are much nicer! We tried to extend our stay but they were booked out completely, so if you are traveling in high season make sure you book for all the days you want!

    I would prefer if every person in the dorm could have a key or similar, rather than one key between everyone. Aside from that great hostel!

    We loved this hostel! Especially the atmosphere, the staff were awesome and they played great music! The rooms were really spacious, our only complaints are that hand soap was not provided and the wifi did not work very well (however this is in all of el chalten, do no fault to the hostel). The beds were comfy and we really loved all the storage they provide you!! Highly recommend.

    Nice stay here, the main part of the hostel has a warm, cozy common area which is really nice to chill in after a long hike. The kitchens were pretty good, fairly well equipped. Bedroom was spacious and bed was comfy. The only real problem was the WiFi, pretty much non-existent in the part of the hostel we were in.

    Awesome, but, for such an expensive dorm, could use: not-rugged couch material beds, that we make/set up ourselves (which is normal in dorms, just, dorm was cost of a nice private room), hot water

    Arrived earlier than check in time, stored our bags and was advised to come back at check in time, when we came back we were told 3 times that the room was nearly ready and eventually checked in nearly an hour after check in time. Room and bathroom were not clean and both smelt, we slept in our sleeping bags as we didn't want to use the hostel blankets. No toilet paper in any toilet, when requested from the front desk was told sorry we don't have any.
