We enjoyed our stay here. Decent size room with a nice big bed, perfect after a long days hike. Close enough to the Main Street with restaurants and grocery stores, but quiet enough to get a good nights sleep. Only con would be the wifi didn't really work...but this seemed to be less of a Guanaca thing and more of... More

We stayed at La Guanaca for six nights around christmas. The room was not too big but sufficient, clean and nicely decorated and we had a nice view of the Fitz Roy. There is a kitchen with basic equipment which we used every day for cooking! There is a small fridge where you can store food. For breakfast, most of... More

La Guanaca is a essential and typical El Chalten B&B. Rooms are clean and the view on Fitz Roy is superb. Breakfast is simple but effective. It is located at walking distance from bakery, laundry, restaurants and trekking paths. Beside the hardware features, La Guanaca owners are incredibly kind and available, they help us out in managing trip issues (even... More

La Guanaca is a very nice and cosy hostel. The rooms have a view on the Fitz Roy and are very characteristic, clean and cosy. Breakfast is good with tasty homemade cake and the owners are really kind, helpful and very attentive (even put our two twin beds together with sheets for a double bed). A superb place to stay...

This place feels like a zimmer in Europe! The rooms are clean, pretty and cozy. Bathroom and room are cleaned every day. There's a well equipped kitchen open 24h, no restrictions. The owner is very pleasant and nice. You get a descent place for a fair price. There's a nice view from the balcony and a tasty restaurant just downstairs.

La Guanaca is situated close to the entrance of the city, close to bus station. Also you have a nice view on Fitz Roy when there are no clouds. And family who runs a place is just amazing! They are always eager to help you to find solutions for any situation. A perfect place! Totally recommended!!!

Lovely hosts, great location. Stayed for 6 nights, one night in a double with private bath and the remainder in a room with 4 twin beds and private bath. Both rooms were very nice, tastefully decorated, clean and cozy. The room with the twin beds had so much room for the two of us, that we opted to stay in... More

This place was just what we needed. Nice and warm rooms, good service, bathroom with warm water, very very nice owner, kitchen. We stayed longer than we thought. The owner was really flexible and did not charge us for the nights we went for 2-day hikes. She also changes money and is ready to help with organizing your trip. Would... More

Really nice room, warm and comfortable behind a simple frontage. Friendly welcome. Cheaper than most of the others. Clean bathroom with hot water. Small but useful kitchen. Good breakfast with medialuna. Well situated in the middle of the city

We stayed here 2 nights in February. Our room was upstairs with a view of Mt Fitz Roy! Our hosts were very friendly and helpful, they did our laundry and also exchanged some US Dollars for us.
