Close to mid December 2011, Noel, Daan and me were finishing our 3 weeks Birding Tour in Argentina. We started birding close to "Buenos Aires", then went up north through the "Ibera Marshes", "Iguazu Falls and National Park", crossed over to Paraguay and then went down south through "Trelew" and "Camarones" to finish it off at "Calafate" in SSW Patagonia....

The rooms are very clean and reasonably comfortable, and a decent value given the inflated prices in El Calafate. Also the continental breakfast was good. Unfortunately, the grim and inhospitable owners make staying at Los Barrancos unpleasant. Also, the walls are thin, the hotel is difficult to find, and while the hotel advertises WiFi it does not work in the... More

We were there in December 2012 for 4 nights. We don't like this hosteria because the location, too far from town and the walking path is not easy. Wall are thin between rooms - we can heard clearly all the conversations from next door! Meanwhile the host has never smile! She seem not a happy person. Breakfast was poor. No... More

We have had a wonderful stay at this hosteria! Monica has made us feel so welcome, helping us with advice on day trips, restaurants and how to get around. Jorge even drove us into town to book our trip to the glacier for the next day as we arrived so late. The rooms are really comfortable and warm, hot showers... More

We reserved our room at Los Barrancos after several unsuccessful attempts booking elsewhere - what a disappointment. The rooms are spartan with the absolute minimal comforts. The hot water problem noted by the previous poster hasn't been fixed and the term "bushwacking" comes to mind to describe the rather long and unsafe trek into downtown El Calafate. The "path" is...

We stayed at Hosteria Los Barrancos in November 2006. The owner speaks English, so making the reservation via e-mail was pretty easy. To secure reservation, I e-mailed my credit card information over the Internet (there's also an option to fax). The hotel is on a hilltop overlooking the town. The dining room, where breakfast is served has very large windows... More
