I Wonder how Hotelcom/Expedia could offer this "down to earth place" us for 400 + Euro pro night? Explanation still on hold. The Lupama is a kind of simple and poor designed Hostel. Something went complete wrong. Reception only in spainish no other languages. Seems like young and unexpirience folks , not involved. The room is poor designed. This was... More

On 4JAN I reserved a room online for 6 & 7JAN at $140 per night. I arrived at 14:30 on 6JAN and the price was $190. It wasn't worth it and it was not the quoted price. Told them I didn't want the room. They said 'read the contract'. Complained via E-mail to Booking.com After a number of E-mail exchanges... More

We stayed at the Lupama B & B for 2 nights and were happy with our stay. The rooms were clean and spacious. The staff go out of their way to help you and make sure you are comfortable. For the most part the staff speak spanish , this was a problem as we did not know any spanish !.... More

The cancellation was two months before the supposed check-in day . but the hotel refused to give me refund till now. That is I want to remind everyone who... More

I stayed at Lupama with my daughter. The room was confortable, clean and quiet. Had a bathtub which was useful after the tours. The breakfast was very poor and just until 9:00 am!! But the staff full of young people was very helpful and attentious. We could walk to town but would get a cab to come back, because of... More

For example, to pay the minitrekking excursion, we had to withdraw 900 pesos in downtown to booked it; - The food... More

I stayed here with my sister last year and whilst it is not on main drag it is only about a 10 minute walk downhill. You can always get a taxi back from El Calafate as you save a lot by staying here and it is a good value option if you can't do or feel too old /shy to... More

There is not any Internet access in your room. To use your laptop, you must access the Internet at the reception lobby and breakfast area. The hotel is located 2 km from downtown. It does not provide transportation. So, you walk or ask the receptionist at the front desk to call a taxi. Cost 10 PESO one way. Rooms are... More

My husband and I had an excellent time at Hosteria Lupama. It is small--only 12 guest rooms--but clean and comfortable. The staff was extremely pleasant and accomodating. Every morning we had a traditional Argentine breakfast and always shared a bottle of wine in the evening. We stayed over New Years Eve and were so surprised to be offered a very... More
