We ended up staying here one night because the rest of the hotels were booked in Chalten (a big trail running race the weekend we were there). The rooms are nice, the bathrooms clean, etc. Breakfast was great for Argentinian standards - we were also served scrambled eggs which was a nice change of pace. It did get a bit... More

Good location in El Chalten. VERY helpful at the front desk. Organized pick ups, etc for us. Rooms were a good size and clean. Common area was comfortable and inviting. Internet is spotty, but I think that is pretty common in all of El Chalten

We stayed in this in Argentine late spring. It was a little windy, sometimes rainy. It was very nice to come to hotel after walkingin the mountains, felt like being at home. The surroundings especially the buildings are very strange for the newly arrived, all in different shapes and sizes. All over the place loose dog running and having a... More

My husband and I stayed at Kaulem Hosteria and highly recommend the hotel. The hotel is in the perfect location within easy walking distance to the hiking trails. The staff is knowledgeable about the trails, conditions, restaurants and breakfast is great. We had an issue with our bus reservation and the staff were so kind and helpful in straightening out...

We were recently in lovely Chalten for few days and stayed here. Its a lovely little place (as well as an art gallery - which was a lovely surprise). The staff are very nice and helpful. The room was a good size - nothing fancy but if you're in Chalten you won't be spending much time indoors anyways. So a... More

My wife and I stayed at Hosteria Kaulem in El Chalten for our honeymoon during our visit to El Chalten to hike Mt. Fitz Roy and the surrounding trails. The hotel itself was VERY comfortable, warm, clean, and friendly. We absolutely loved it, as well as the really friendly and helpful staff. They helped us figure out what trails to... More

Warm, friendly, comforable with a very knowledgable staff. The room was comforable and had a great view of Fitzroy. It was plenty big enough, clean and had a nice bathroom. Breakfast was very good. The young man at the front desk, Facundo, would make eggs if you wished. He was helpful with hiking, restaurant and transportation and any other kind... More

Had a lovely stay at Kaulem, a nice lounge area, good breakfast and lovely staff. Good location close to the start of the trail. A lovely design even from outside, all wood and glass. Would definitely come back!

We were in the area for a few days, and spent one day/night here at the suggestion of our travel company (Off The Beaten Path). Great place / friendly and helpful staff / excellent location. We'd recommend to others!!!

We stayed here for 3 Nights. El Chalten is a good base for hiking with a number of trails which start from the town. Kaulem is a loverly timber framed building where ALL the staff really look after you. Even before we arrived Josefina was exceptionally helpful booking buses from El Calafate to El Chalten plus the return journey and... More
