“Gerardo is a legend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

Stayed here 5 nights, 4 in a unique little pointy house that was lovely and warm in the winter, and 1 night in a dorm room that was just as good. It's very central and 10 mins walk to anywhere you'd want to go in the town centre. Breakfast was lovely and Gerardo was really helpful in helping us plan our day trips. Showers took a bit of coaxing to work but it wasn't a big issue. 5 mins from the bus station and supermarkets / bars close by. Bus to Glaciarium is 2 blocks away. Great value and would happily stay there again

We have been here for 3 nights. Gerardo and his family were very nice and helpfull. They made our stay very pleasant. The first night Gerardo waited till 01.30am as our buss arrived late.
Also they took care of recommending and arranging tours in El Calafate.

We stayed in one of the cozy cabbins. There isn't much space, a (small) double bed on the 2nd floor and a single on the first. It takes some time to get a warm shower, but do not expect any luxury when staying here. The cabbins have charm! Breakfest is ok.

Wifi is available in the public living room and they have (cheap) laundry service. A kitchenette is available for use. For a small price you can join dinner.

We can recommend this place for your stay. Everyone was very helpfull and you felt very welcome.
The location is nearby the centre and bus terminal.

Having read reviews, the cabin did not disappoint! After getting the heating going, it was a lovely place to stay and so much fun. The breakfast was simple but fine, and we can also recommend the lunch box and dinners. Everyone there was very friendly and helpful when needed. It was cleaned daily, which was a nice surprise. The only downside was the shower, which took ages to get going and wasn't very powerful. Don't go expecting a plush ski chalet, you get what you pay for. Made El Calafate a very homely place for a few days!

Room Tip: I emailed in a reservation rather than go through a booking site, to ensure we got a cabin and not j...

We were in Las Cabanitas for 5 days. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the hostel is located near the bus station in the city center. Gerardo and his father Edoardo are always available to satisfy every desire.
Every evening Gerardo proposes a specialty at very affordable prices with excellent results. Must try the trout with herbs!
Gerardo is also a lover of adventure and can advise you on all excursions.

Las Cabanitas is the best place where to stay in El Calafate and has remained in our hearts

We spent 5 days in Las Cabanitas and it was like staying at home.
Gerardo and his family were welcoming from the start and made us feel at home.
The hostel is clean and well located and has a beautiful garden full of lavender.
We also had dinner two times piacare of the hostel and Gerard found an excellent cook.
Really recommend it to all Las Cabanitas

Great value and charm. Love Gerardo and his dad, both kind and very helpful! Charming little A-frames. My only friendly suggestion is to raise the price a dollar, and include a hard boiled egg and a banana or other piece of fruit for breakfast, to prepare for a long day out.

My wife and I stayed here for a few nights before heading over to TdP in Chile and really loved the place. The owner Gerardo and his family are so friendly, welcoming and helpful it was a very comfortable and relaxing place to rest. Great breakfast and WiFi included and they happily stored our excess luggage while we were in TdP....we were happy to return and spend another two nights here afterward. For us the location was great, an easy walk from the bus station and very quiet, yet still a nice/easy walk down to town. Would recommend to any friends or family heading this way....
