We stayed a couple of nights at Posada La Base and if we’d go back to El Chalten we’d stay her again! This place has the right ‘laid back El Chalten feeling’. The rooms are in cabins which are set in the garden. They have a good size and are clean. In an equipped kitchen which you share with another... More

We found a very nice place to stay in a 2 pax cabin. There were two rooms with four single beds each. There is a bathroom and a kitchen with a dining room. Everything was provided to cook for ourselves. Note however, that buying ingredients can be difficult in Calten, as there are very few supermarkets. Would stay again!

Pluses: Well-equipped kitchen. Owner is very friendly. Price is competitive. Excellent DVD and video collection in the room above reception. Minus: The free internet is slower than snail pace. The plusses far outweigh the minuses.
