We were very pleased with our stay at Hosteria Hainen. Our room was comfortable, though we struggled at first to get warm water in the shower. The dining room is quaint and relaxing. The service was friendly, though they did have some trouble locating our reservation. Fortunately there was an extra room available. I would recommend booking directly through Hosteria... More

Stayed for one night in transit because the price was right and the reviews pretty favourable. I was pleased that I did ! I had a day to kill and the owner was quite happy for me to sit in the lounge booking the next part of my trip and he even called a ferry company for me and booked... More

Arrived at the hotel after a long bus ride at 21:30, and was notified by the receptionist that the hotel was mistakenly over-booked. I can somehow understand and accept it, if the hotel handle this problem professionally. However, i was informed that they have made a substitue booking under my name in an adjacent hotel (which is far worse than... More

I stayed here for 2 nights to visit the Perito Moreno Glacier. The highlight of Hainen is their fantastic customer service: everyone is very responsive on email, great at executing requests to book excursions or buses, and great at recommending places or helping with solutions to problems. Rooms are very spacious, very clean, and very charming for a hostel property.... More

Stayed 3 nights. The last night was unplanned. We got snowed in. All flights cancelled. The hotel gave us the special grounded rate for the last night. And they turned a terrible situation into a great one. Very clean. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. And very close to the main strip but still affords the view of the mountains and... More

This hotel might not be a 5 star one, but it is excellent in many aspects: very VERY clean, comfortable beds, great water pressure in the showers, very good breakfast and walking distance to main town street, including "La Tablita" only 5 blocks away if you want to try the best patagonin lamb in Calafate. The walking from the town... More

We stayed one night in Feb 2015. Clean rooms and friendly & helpful staff. Nice big breakfast. Wifi a bit dodgy but did work eventually. It's about a 5 mins walk from the main centre so is pretty convenient. Nothing spectacular but we had a nice stay and I would recommend this place.

We stayed just one night, before and after our group tour of Los Glaciares National Park. The Hosteria is a clean, bright hotel, located a 10-minute walk outside of El Calafate. Two good restaurants are nearby. Breakfast consists of cereals, yogurt, rolls/toast/crossaint (if you are gluten-free, bring something you can eat). We stayed in a two-bedroom suite (Room 17?) the...

Lovely hotel in a quiet spot just 10 mins walk from the center of town. Staff is very helpful on any front - tours and even weather recommendations. Rooms are a good size and with lots of storage space/shelves and tables - which is kind of useful when you travel and want to spread things around!! Very clean, good heating... More

Loved the hotel. Great customer service especially Veronica on reception who was always charming and helpful. They made no charge for the booked night we missed due to a flight cancellation. They offered us a free breakfast when we arrived after a night flight. Beds very comfortable, views fantastic and we loved the restaurant they recomended almost next door.
