#13 of 68 Specialty lodging in El Chalten
We are a Family Run Hostel! We arrive to the area before “Chalten was founded in 1985.” In 2003 we bought this hostel expanding family business from farming to hospitality. You will be kindly attended by one of our family members who will be at the front desk willing to give you all the guidance you need in order to make your stay in our beautiful town unique and unforgettable. We can give you information about town and hikes, maps, book activities around the area, buy transfer tickets, restaurants. We will do our best if you respect the hostel, staff and other guest. If not, we reserve the right to fire those with bad behavior. Our hostel is really close to the main hike, excellent location for lovers of trekking and mountain activities, also there aren’t other properties behind our land allowing you to fully enjoy the nature at its purest, and the river is very close from our garden which also has nice views to the mountains and the valley. There you can hang out with other guest and drink many beers after long hikes, to recover strength in a sunny afternoon. We have different types of rooms making it accessible for more people, it consist in: *The classic shared dorms with 3,4 or 6 bunk beds. Some of them have reading lights, sockets and small metal boxes, where you need to put your padlock. Really simple rooms for backpackers. -While bed linen is included in the price, you are required to make up the bed on arrival, and if you wish to have a towel you can rent it at the reception. *For those looking for more privacy, we have two doubles with shared bathroom made inside of a refurnished shipping container. These rooms are small, enough to keep you warm in a cold place like Patagonia! *Then for those with a bigger budget we have three doubles with a private shower room and toilet. -Our doubles all come with linen, towels and soap. All of our guest have free access to the following facilities: Two full kitchens, one available 24/7,together they have 3 fridges and 3 gas ovens, 1 pizza oven, electric ovens, 10 gas stoves, microwaves, electric kettles, blenders, toasters, BBQ facilities and appliances to cook “comida al disco” & “asado”. There are many pots, pans, dishes and glasses. Sadly for some stuff like silverware/cutlery and mugs a fully refundable deposit is necessary. Ask for it at the front desk. We hope you to enjoy our kitchens preparing your food as much as you enjoy doing the washing up in the sinks we provide you, trust me they don’t bite. Bad news fairy godmother gave up, so she is no longer working here L and you will have to dry and put everything away as well. There are also two communal lounges with optional tv. One of them is open 24/7, this one has very nice views. For the guest staying in shared dorms, there are 10 showers and 8 toilets. There are 48 lockers in the lounge for those who fell that the one in the room is not big enough, guest are kindly requested to supply their own padlock. Luggage storage, WIFI, laundry service Please make sure you fell at home!

This hostal is near the end of town and quite far from the bus station, at least considering the size of the town. The room was quite small, as was the bathroom. But we did have a private bathroom. Everything is of wood, and that was clearly starting the sink, so the floor was not particularly even. We had problems getting enough hot water for 2 showers. Although when booking it stated free wifi, basically there is no functioning wifi in this hostal. The reception is open for very limited time.

if you arrive mid afternoon you'll greeted by no-one! their reception has the most bizzare hours, but hey this is the travelling world. I went back several hours later and was welcomed by the most rude, cold staff and uninterested staff member. honestly treated me like I was stupid and in his way of whatever he was doing. the room was very small and super hot, I was sharing the bunk with a friend and their was barely room for our bags and us. the walls are paper thin and you can hear everything from the common area, kitchen and bathrooms. the wifi barely worked but there was hot water and if you needed it convenient parking in front. the location is pretty good as its right in the middle of everything.

This place is a good enough place to stay before and after trekking. For sure is not the best place in the world but is fine for what you are paying. I recomend to everyone who is on a budget and just need to sleep.

We stayed for 3 nights at Lo de Trivi to explore El Chalten and the hikes around. Our first impression was OK. The room was small and very warm and the bathroom was clean. However, we soon realised that the walls between the rooms are tiny and means it's possible to hear absolutely everything. As there are no staff staying on the property overnight, we had to deal with the noise issues. Granted, most of the issues we had were based on the guests there at the same time as us but the owner was not helpful and lacked any responsibility. Would not recommend if you're looking for a quiet place to relax after a long day hiking.

Overall this hostel has a fair few positives. We stayed in a double room and it was massive which was great. It had a table, an extra bed etc so loads of room for storage of luggage etc. The bathroom was ok. The shower unit is literally tiny but pressure and heat good. Two kitchens. We used the one at the back as it’s nice and quiet. Huge common area with tables but quiet a dark room lacking atmosphere. They also have a nicer smaller common room near reception with a sofa, tv etc. They have a lot of space and the weather was lovely so outdoor seating would have been a bonus. WiFi mainly poor and non existent in our room but this is normal for the area. The staff seemed nice and would help/give advice when asked. The cleaner would always say hello and was polite. The main awkward thing is payment which I am still unsure on how I feel about it. The price on booking.com for 5 nights was 10,574. However on the day we were charged 11,200. When we questioned this he quoted what it said (in quite a fed up voice, probably because it happens all the time) on booking.com that it’s whatever the exchange rate is from usd that day. This helps to protect them if someone books far in advance if the rate goes up. However we only booked 4 days before?? As I said we were warned about this on booking.com but I strongly believe if you agree to a price in Argentinian peso as we had when booking the price should be the same on payment. All other hostels in Argentina kept their price the same. I think this would save a lot of awkwardness on payment and avoids you feeling a little like someone has just squeezed some extra money from you.
