This place is a little more spendy than we usually spring for but glad we did. Very clean, excellent common area and kitchen area where we made some food, well appointed rooms and knowledgable and helpful staff. Highly recommend!

Great hostel right in the center of small quant El Chalten. Easy to get to all the hikes and the staff are super helpful with local informations. We had a private room no bathroom. You can hear EVERYTHING including every foot step and cough but the staff is good about keeping quiet hours.

I stayed here for 4 nights. The bed was clean and comfortable. I had a room upstairs and it was quiet there. The bathroom was clean. All areas had good windows and were naturally well lit. Common areas were quite nice too. The staff was very responsive in person and by email. They (Romina) emailed me in very great detail...

We had a double room with private bathroom. Everything about the room met our expectations. They even had a brush to clean your boots after the hike. The common areas were nice, offering guest some interaction and a well equipped kitchen. Laundry service was also good value. The trail heads are really just next to the hostel. Wifi was slow...

Recommended by a local. Glad we stayed here. Rented a Cabana for two nights. Fair price. Everything was clean and comfortable. Had issue with hot water heater but staff quickly fixed the problem. Easy walking access to all major climbs. Highly recommend to folks who wouldn't normally stay at a hostel.

You will be glad you dropped your bag there. Super clean hostel with very friendly staff. All the information you need including good restaurants. Get quiet at a reasonable hour. Private rooms get a free breakfast at the restaurant next door.

We stayed in a double room with shared bathroom. The room was nice and clean but relatively small. The shared bathroom was good but could have been cleaned once more as the bins were overflowing at night. The kitchen was okay. There should have been oil and salt provided though as this is a standard for other backpackers hostels. Good...

The main building is nice: spacious, fairly warm (in winter) and with a well-equipped kitchen. The front desk folks are welcoming and helpful. WiFi works and--for El Chalten standards--is fairly fast. I would happily give this place 4 dots or even five, but then I got to spend the second night in an 800ARS cabana -- and that was a...

Dear Daniel, sorry that have had to change their accommodation to be filled ours. At that time there were many problems with the water supply and pressure was very variable. We always recommend our guests tell in advance how many days they want to stay housed, to avoid running out availability. We wait for you on your next trip to...

The hostel is in impeccable shape. Room bed and plumbing all OK. Good breakfast, all staff very attentive and helpful. Example: they lent us hiking staffs for free. A good location for meeting other hikers. Wi-Fi rather feeble (this is very frequent in Argentina). Room single-glazed with a poor-quality Al frame, so ample condensation during the night - not our...
