“Great family service”
Reviewed November 18, 2013 via mobile

Very pleased to have found this place. Great value dorm (they have mostly privates but also one dorm room), nice relaxing areas with great book library. Very good location, 5 minutes walk from everything on the main street, 2 mins walk from bus station and big supermarket. Best thing about Schilling though is the lovely family who run it, really nice people who I hope to see again some day!

Everything was prefect at this lovely lodge in El Calafate. The owners always had a smile on, and accomodated my every need! Spottless, great breakfast and great private grounds made my stay perfect. It is right in the middle of downtown, one block from the train station and one block from the main street and supermarket. The location could not be more optimal. Rooms were spotless and serviced daily. Great water pressure and warm water round the clock! Highly recommended!!

We had initially planned to stay for 2 nights at Schilling Hostal while visiting El Calafaté.

From arriving the staff at this family run hostel could not have been more welcoming and helpful. The hostel had a very homely feel in the communal areas. We were given help and advice on the Perito Moreno Glacier tours and they even offered to call and book the tour for us.

Our room was basic but clean and comfortable and very reasonably priced. The inclusive breakfast was again basic but tasty and started early enough for us to make the excursions. We also ate in their restaurant one night and for the very reasonable prices, the food was great.

After having trouble with transport arrangements, we chose to book in again at short notice and then again on our return through El Calafaté, each time the service was consistently good.

Overall a great, well run and friendly hostel that is perfect for a short stay in the area.

I booked our first 2 nights in Schilling kind of randomly because I was overwhelmed reading reviews. I was traveling with a friend and we were so happy with it we came back for our last night. The family that run the place is very helpful and friendly. It's a comfortable, friendly place that makes you almost want to hang out there! But it's also very close to the bus station and the main street of Calafate. They helped us book our tour to Perito Moreno (definitely do the mini-trekking!) and our bus to El Chalten, and were genuinely interested in our experience. We enjoyed them very much, and the coffee was good too!

Room Tip: I slept great but my friend was bothered by a dripping sound coming from the heaters. Honestly I wou...

Absolutely excellent Hostel, very friendly and hospitable staff. Only 100m from the Main Street, Bars and Restaurant. All excursions and transfers can be easily booked at reception. Highly recommend the mini trekking on Perito Moreno Glacier

My dad and I showed up with no reservations in El Calafate. Our first stop was booked and we were kindly direct to Hostal Schilling. My dad hadn't stayed in a hostal in probably 20 years and we both loved it here. The new owners are lovely and were super helpful to us knowing the area well, with connections. The rooms clean and practical, the common areas oozing with ambiance. The location is great: 1 block west of bus station and 1 block north of the main strip and a supermarket. We then went to El Chalten (amazing) and then stayed at Schilling Hostal again upon return. Would have stayed longer but had a prepaid flight out. Highly recommended!
