Stayed here 1 1/2 year ago. For all the hostels we stayed at in Argentina this has made the best impression. Really helpful personal when arranging trip and thinking of thing to do. Family owned and run. Really good atmosphere where you felt welcome.

El Calafate is located in the middle of nowhere in Patagonia. At least this is the feeling you get, looking at a map. And still, this place will feel a little like home, not least thanks to the welcoming family running this B&B. It is one of the most popular places with tourists from all over the world, so you'd...

Belen and Dario ensured we had a great stay with their amazing hospitality. Nothing was too much trouble and when we wanted to extend our stay Belen made a huge effort to try and secure us a room elsewhere , as they of course were fully booked. She even marvelled with us at the hefty prices quoted! This really was... More

We were here for some nights, and felt very welcomed. It's a family owned place and they helped with all the information we needed. Free coffee and tea 24/7. Breakfast was very good including homemade jam. Even a tomato jam that was very tasty. Facilities for cooking, or you can preorder dinner. Great Patagonian beers. Free internet, worked best in...

We stayed here for one night before catching an early bus to Torres del Paine. I was quite sick and found Hospedaje Lautaro a soft place to land and recover before continuing our trek throughout southern Patagonia. We had a small private room with ensuite bathroom (which was a pleasant surprise, as we had booked a room with a shared... More

Very welcoming owners and very nice breakfast, good selection of breads and sweets, and oats (love oats). Also the hostel is very conveniently located towards the main street. Rooms and particularly bathrooms were not in great shape, but they were clean.

And I am not talking about the temperature in the rooms (which, by the way, were also pleasantly warm to make you feel cosy after a day of hiking in the wind), but the wonderfully warm and caring owners, Belen and Dario. While it may not be that hard to find a place where the owners are helpful and professional,... More

This was one of the most friendly places we have ever stayed, and I would highly recommend staying here. Rooms are basic, but clean and comfortable. Breakfasts are tasty with home made breads and jams. We also had an evening meal at the hostel, which was fantastic (don't miss the steak and red wine!). Thank you :-)
