Schilling Hostal Patagonico

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 26, 2013 via mobile

Cosy rooms and large common area with nice breakfast. The hosts were great and gave good recommendations for traveling the area... also the location is good- close to the main street but not right on it.

It is not a 5 star hotel but it exceeds all expectations. Very clean and cosy bedrooms.
Very warm atmosphere with a lounge where travelers meet and share their experiences.
Ramiro and his family organize the trips to glaciers, provide advice on where to have the best "Patagonia lamb" and make you feel at home wherever you're coming from.
Town centre also at walking distance for any service.

The value is amazing, and you don't have to pay the VAT if paying in pesos. The receptionist was always nice, and luckily the rooms have manual heaters you adjust yourself because it quickly gets bone-chilling cold in the room. The furnishings and bathroom can use an update, and the bars on the windows that look into the yard feel dreary. Breakfast pastries, juice, cereal, and the backpacker-style common space was nice. The location is only a few blocks from the bus station, grocery, and uphill from the main walking street.

We stayed several nights in this hostel both in a double room and the dorm. Beds, rooms and bathroom are very good and the reception area is very cozy and warm. Owners are very friendly and helpfull an location is also great. Only when you want to cook something yourself you will find the kitchen a bit small and short on equipment but it is doable. Moreover, there are plenty of nice restaurants to eat at right around the corner. We would definitely recommend this hostel!

Was recommended by friends to stay at Schilling..I arrived at 11am way ahead of the check-in time and was greeted warmly by Cecilia who brought me tea while I waited for the room to be ready. The location is excellent and located about a minute's walk away from the bus station and a few minutes walk to the main touristy street. Hostal Schilling is more of a B&B rather than a hostel but, nonetheless they had a 4-bed dorm room with an ensuite bathroom and a small exclusive kitchen directly outside the room. Room and bathroom were clean. There were good hot showers and ample heating in the room. Breakfast had the usual toasts and coffee/tea/juice and also included 3 different types of cakes which was great by Argentinian standards! Very good value for money especially if staying in the dorm room..and it is also a Hola hostel so you get 10% off if you have the Hola membership card! Will definitely recommend Hostal Schilling to anyone heading to El Calafate!

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!!
