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.

    Very good value for money in an area that is quite expensive. Kitchen is very big and very well equipped. Hostel is warm, staff are very friendly and willing to help. Great location for hikes with supermarkets nearby. Would stay here again

    Great location in the middle of town - 5 mins walk from the start of the trails . Clean and the radiators are on 24/7 making it lovely and toasty warm! Clean bathrooms and kitchen to use. Wifi isn’t great, only works in one part of the building but remember where you are! Supermarket across the road. Friendly staff, awesome stay!

    A great hostel in a perfect location for all of the hikes in El Chalten. The staff were all lovely and very helpful, and the kitchen was very big! The atmosphere wasn’t great but that was probably because I was there in low-season, there’s a very big social area so I guess when the hostel is full it’s a lot better! Would highly recommend this place!

    Looks quite old, rooms are clean, big kitchen with everything you need, 10min walk from town centre, supermarkt nearby. Very friendly and helpful staff. Good for the price you pay, though would look for something else next time.

    Positives: good location and close to the start of the Laguna de los tres hike. Negatives: their wifi only works in one particular area of the hostel (a very small common area, it doesn’t reach the kitchen, main common area or rooms), no breakfast option and the hot water was unreliable (not what you want after a long days trekking!). It was also unfortunate that someone ate our lunch supplies for the next days trek which we discovered in the morning (not at the fault of the hostel).
