I booked this place through a package with Caltur Travel in El Calafate. They do a "promo" which is a return bus ticket to the Perito Moreno glacier, return bus ticket El Calafate <-> El Chalten, and 1 night in the Pioneros del Valle. El Chalten is very small that it makes El Calafate look developed. The wifi standards in... More

This hostel is huge and I think we were lucky to be there in the shoulder season so it wasn't full. The staff were really helpful, knew all our names and rooms were a decent size. The showers were amazing.. Just what you need after a long walk! We were lucky that they didn't put anyone else in our room... More

This hostel is very very good on security but does not leave cutlery in the kitchen, you have to ask for it. Living space looked really good but the pool table was very uneven and the reception kept playing music which made it hard to watch the tv. overall it's an ok place but could easily improve by simple things...

I liked it here and would certainly recommend it. Big rooms, nice beds, great hot showers, a proper building (not cabin esque building as is typical), staff helpful in recommending a restaurant, decent bedding, good chill out areas.

We booked this hostel on booking.com prior to our arrival in El Chalten. It seemed to look alright in the photos out of the 3 we had to choose from. Everything was verrrry booked up. This is a profit making business not Hostel. First impressions were bad. We walked in and it was clean and looked nice then we waited... More

As mentioned earlier it's clean and spacious .. Nicely located in walking distance with everything .. Atmosphere ... Hmmm ... Guess people make the atmosphere so I'm not gonna blame the hostel for that.. They can't really ask each n every guest to be a bit social please.. If you see a solo traveller please sit with him/her .. Make... More

I was staying in a dorm with six beds and own facilities. Toilet and shower are separated. There is nothing to complain about this place except for a lack of atmosphere. Yet, the hostel had the cleanest and simply the best bathroom in my three weeks in Brazil and Patagonia. Breakfast for 45 ar $ was very simple and not... More

As a place to stay, there is not much wrong with this hostel. It's one of the cleanest hostels I've stayed in. The lockers were huge, the bathroom was nice and big (and clean). The staff were helpful and friendly. Location is good. I was in a 6-bed dorm with ensuite and it was nice and big. In fact, I... More

How do you describe a place that lacks all atmosphere. The only positive thing to say about this hostel is that it is clean. Ever been to a hospital? Well, that is how it feels. The kitchen doesn't even supply a knife or a spoon. Bring everything. If you want to go outside all doors are locked except the main... More
