Property Description

So, you are off! You have just decided to travel to El Chalten, and from now on your choices are easier, especially concerning your housing.
Rancho Grande is a pioneer, and still the best hostel in Chalten. Strategically situated near all trekking paths, it offers your choice of shared bedrooms or private rooms, kitchen facilities, baggage storage, safe box, internet service, laundry, restaurant, and best of all, Rancho Grande (widely known as Rancho) is the best place to meet people from all around the world, make new friends, share some beers and watch sports or movies.
The recipe is simple, take your favorite London or Irish Pub, throw some sports bar in the mix, add a little spice of a club scene and what you get is the main room of Rancho.
Dont forget you can also taste the big and famous Bife Rancho or Milanesa Rancho. Both are ideal to replenish your energy after trekking the surrounding area, or maybe you can take a bite of the sweet pastries offered at the bar counter.
The bi-lingual staff at the hostel will do their best to make your stay at Rancho comfortable and cozy. They will offer you the whole panorama you need to enjoy your trip, information regarding places to visit, things to do and not to do, the ins and outs of the area, and trendy suggestions. They are a mix of reception staff, weather forecasters, traffic cops and gpss, and want to make your trip fun and enjoyable.
The staff can also book excursions and accommodations in El Calafate. They sell bus tickets to almost everywhere in Patagonia, and even book airline flights from their travel offices near the entrance of the town.
Rancho sits proudly along the main avenue in Chalten.

    Superb

    Excellent hostel located a short walk from the start of a few important hiking trails. Rooms, common areas, and bathrooms are very clean. Staff are very friendly and super helpful. Atmosphere is very lovely and the restaurant on the main floor has great food (a little pricey but delicious)! If you want a comfortable and easy place to stay, this is it!

    Superb

    I loved the location and how it was close to the Mount Fitz Roy track. What really made the experience enjoyable were the two men at reception. They gave great insight on the hiking trails - weather reports, what to pack etc that I would not have thought of myself. One of them also gave me some inspiration on where to travel to next outside of El Chalten. Thank you so much for my time here, I have memories that I will carry with me for a lifetime.

    Fabulous

    A large hostel with fair internet. Nice having a 24 hour restaurant onsite however prices are a bit high as to be expected at a hostel instead of a local eatery. Close to the Mt. Fitz Roy trek. Rooms are a bit small and pretty basic but the communal bathrooms are fine and the showers are fantastic. Great water pressure and hot water!
