Property Description

Located at 220 km from El Calafate, in the National Park Los Glaciares, there is a little touristical town called El Chalten. This magical place has as main attractions the Fitz Roy mountain and the Cerro Torre with its impressive needle, and besides it offers other imposing landscapes like colorful woods of oaks and lenga trees that shelter several glaciers.

At the starting point of the self guided trails leading to these astonishing sites, we find the Hostel Pioneros del Valle, the most modern hostel in the area that by means of its professional staff provides a friendly and pleasant environment for a warm stay in El Chalten.

Our hostel has 12 spacious rooms with heating and multifunction private bathroom, and individual lockers.

The assistance provided by our professionals 24 hours a day creates a friendly and pleasant atmosphere. Guests may enjoy other amenities such as our fully-equipped integrated kitchen and dining-room, where they can have a drink with friends or cook their favourite dish. Besides, they may use the luggage locker. Housekeeping is available every day.

    Great location and facilities. The room is big and the bathroom inside is divided in 3(shower, toilet, lavatory) which is really helpful when sharing the room. Also, they provide a key for the big closet assigned to your bed in the room. Due to covid restriccions you cant cook, but toaster, microwave, fridge and hot water is available. My only suggestion is that it would be good to put a soap dispenser in the room. Sandra was super nice, friendly and helpfull everyday. I would stay there again.

    Great base for a stay in El Chaltén. We were in a twin room and were pleased with the size of room and the bathroom. Showers were hot and had great pressure. We were worried about the kitchen after reading reviews but found it fine, it gets a lot of use but is cleaned at least twice a day and has basic (although well used) equipment. As we were in a private room we got breakfast, with eggs. We felt it was good value for Chaltén, well located for trails and very safe. Staff very helpful.

    VERY Friendly staff, I could say is cheap (I paid for 3 nights 16 dollars per night) in a wide double room with a private bathroom very clean, location is OK , the hostel is in the main street ( Av. San Martin) and close to the main trekking circuits ( Laguna Torre & Laguna de los tres) Breakfast was very good and I'll come back to the place

    Such a great hostel but the vibes were poor. Also every key unlocks every single room, including the private’s which is seriously concerning. Would recommend but definitely lock your stuff!

    Basic but nice hostel. Double room with ensuite was spacious and bed was comfy. The WiFi is very slow and we had no WiFi reception in the room, only in the reception and common area.

    Very big hostel in awesome location, extremely close to trailheads and many good restaurants and supermarkets. Very clean rooms and bathrooms but communal kitchen only has two fridges for probably well over 100 people so never any room No locks on doors so security is poor but you get a locker Breakfast is 300 pesos extra and is basic. Just bread, some cake and jams. Due to size of hostel there is no vibe or atmosphere but overall is a cheap hostel in a pricey town that is good value for $$

    A very well located hostel, with the potential to be great, but missing some basics, such as soap in the dorm rooms, locks on bathroom doors (I was sharing a dorm room with all men), bins in rooms etc. Easily improved upon!
