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.
