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

Kaulem Hosteria is certainly a 'secret gem' within the backpacker feel of El Chalten. Perfect for couples. It is small, quiet and extremely comfortable. The lounge area is fantastic for relaxing and taking in the mountain views from the walls of glass, while flicking through the many travel and information books provided in their library. The staff are so polite... More

Hoseria Kaulem is a great place to "get away." What makes it special is the people. It is quaint, yet beautiful. The rooms are simple but comfortable. The main room is a fabulous place to sit and have a latte or a glass of wine, with the amazing mountains visible through the window. The best part are the people, who... More

We absolutely loved our time at Hosteria Kaulem, we just wished we could have stayed longer!! Martin was THE best host and went above and beyond to help us with some lost luggage. He also made freshly baked bread for the breakfast which was outstanding. The Hosteria is clean, cozy, and has a natural, chill vibe. It's at the footsteps... More

My sister and I did a four-week trip through Patagonia, and we picked this "hostel" while really knowing nothing about it. We couldn't have been more happy with the choice. Here's why: The location of Kaulem is great. It is very close to the start of the trails that you'll be hiking, and it's not too far of a walk... More

Our first nights stay at Kaulem in El Chalten, Argentina, were just what we needed to start off our adventure in Patagonia. Warm, friendly and helpful staff. Owner made special gluten-free bread for my wife.

We loved Chalten and loved Kaulem! We just happened to be the only guests (out of 4 rooms) and the staff made us feel like we were right at home. The food is also delicious and from what they told us all homemade. It was a perfect fit for our Patagonia trip :)
