Liked: Very very clean rooms and facilities with the best showers in all of South America (hot, pressurized with lots of room, perfect after a cold day outdoors). Sebastian is super informative about hikes and the weather. Close to cafes with wifi and close to supermarket. Huge DVD collection for those rainy/windy days indoors.

Disliked: No wifi or breakfast, but this is normal in El Chalten.

Liked: very relaxed atmosphere. nice kitchen. Sebastian was very helpful and always ensured the kitchn stayed clean. a cosy place

Disliked: no wifi, however the town must have been sharing the one cable as even when wifi was available and even at the internet cafes it was terribly slow. so staying without it was no huge loss.

Liked: Cosy, great place to come back to after trekking for the day. Rooms are clean, showers nice and powerful! Actually the guy on reception is really nice and whilst he does play his music a lot, it's actually nice to have some music playing in the common room area. Good collection of DVDs to watch in the evenings and when it's raining!

Disliked: obviously the wifi and no breakfast isnt great for the price, but this is pretty standard in El Chalten so you won't get anything better for your money in town. it's quite small common room area for the amount of people staying there.

Liked: A warm, cosy and friendly hostel, not too far from the bus station. Very clean, and has free spices in the kitchen to liven up the packet pastas! Sebastian has all the info you need about the hikes and other activities in the area. No wifi or breakfast but that's not unusual in El Chaltan. I'd stay here again.

Disliked: Only one cooker so sometimes a short queue to make dinner.
