Very friendly young personnel. Small basic but nice rooms. Basic small breakfast. One of the very few places in Calafate with regular prices. Rooms are not cleaned well every day. Don't accept credit cards. Make sure you have enough cash

Very friendly staff, good help with making reservations. English speaking. Room clean and tidy but small. Lobby could be better suited for relaxing. Good breakfast. 15 minutes walk to city centre which is not a problem.

This hostel was absolutely beautiful and felt brand new! The breakfast was delicious, featuring many fresh baked goods and fruit. Africa the resident golden retriever provided us with some laughs in our downtime and overall the hostel had a great relaxing vibe. The only con I can think of is that the hostel is a little out of town and... More

This was the best hotel in our trip. The Guys at reception are very kind and helpful and respectful. Located at 15 mins from Calafate main avenue, in a quiet place. Nice clean rooms. The homemade breakfast is very good with toast and breads, coffee, pastries, fresh fruit. The Wifi works great. Parking place if you need it. Do you... More

The hotel is excellent and the guys at the reception are extremely kind and helpul. Our stay was excellent. Breakfast is genuine and very good. If we'll go again to El Calafate surely we'll choose again the hotel Los Gnomos.

This place is great! I came with 14 others and stayed for one night and then camped out in the living room on our checkout day waiting for our bus. The rooms are clean and comfortable, with basic toiletries and towels. The breakfast is simple but delicious - toast, pastries, fresh fruit, coffee and tea, and more. The hotel ordered... More

The staff is just so lovely in this hosteria, it feels so cozy as it is very well heated and the views are lovely. Room was very comfortable, very clean and quiet. You can book your excursions through the hosts, they have very good prices for horseback riding and the Perito Moreno. Breakfast was very good and complete. They also... More

We booked thinking the hotel was on the edge of town but actually it is past the El Calafate sign on the edge of town and at least 15 -20 mins to the main 'strip' with the bars and restaurants. This meant that we had to plan ahead and couldn't easily pop back for a rest or a shower. The... More

From before we arrived, during and even after our stay the service from Los Gnomos was amazing. El Calafate is full of people taking advantage of tourists, this is not the case at all for this cosy clean place. Would stay there again.

This place was just right! Affordable budget place in a little bit of a high end city. The guys that run it were awesome! We contacted them before we got to town and asked them to book us a Big Ice Tour, which was a huge help! Breakfast was simple in the Argentine way but plentiful. Only minor complaint is... More
