“nice place but not as advertised and VERY high markup on food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2010

nice setting and surroundings but not really a working farm with lots to do. Was very quiet when we got there but nothing really going on and we did manage to get a few people together for a horseride but that was it really. No bread making animal feeding lasooing going on at all!

taxis - 180AR each way from la cumbre

food - not AR55 per day but per meal, per person so for a basic meal of pasta with a bit of sauce this cost AR50. The water is undrinkable and you have to pay for all drinks. There is no where to buy food once you are there so you are stuck. As a comparison in the local la cumbre you can have a large meat platter with chips and wine in a nice restaurant for AR50 in total.

The lady running the station is very nice and so is the countryside but the rooms are very basic rooms. very basic food for a huge price and to charge for water in addition to that when there is no drinkable water here is a bit much. Wish to stop any other backpackers having a rather expensive surprise. In summery if any backpackers came here for the cheap dorm rooms they would pay so much in taxis and food that it would negate any savings.

There are alot of good things about this estancia. The setting is great, and very informal, there´s a river nearby, and it could be very peaceful, except that the estancia itself is very noisey with guests. As a solo traveller with some Spanish, though not fluent, the informality seemed to mean that nothing was explained to me. I understood that excursion prices are quoted for groups, yet groups of guests, even the whole hostel members would disappear on excursions, with no explanation. I asked to go horse riding and was told this could only be possible with more people, yet watched groups go without me, and was given no notice of when it was finally decided I could go. Its a shame, because I could see how this could be a great experience, maybe if you have fluent Spanish. I was overcharged for the room. I asked for a single and this was confirmed. Then I was given a triple, and charged the full price. This made it very expensive for me. The taxi from the bus station at La Falda to the hostel costs $150. (Argentine pesos). Oh, and guests are not allowed to use electricity points, so make sure everything is fully charged if you do go.
