Liked: Very clean, comfortable. Great atmosphere. Sebastian was very helpful in describing trails, getting transfers as necessary, etc. What looks like really recently renovated bathrooms and showers downstairs. Good location -- right off the main drag in El Chalten (try the bakery across from the blue supermarket!), ~10-15 minute walk to the key trail heads.

Disliked: A little difficult to find (the street it is on is not labeled), stove is temperamental .

Liked: Great host, friendly and very helpful. Always around for a laugh. Great kitchen facilities, and great location.

Disliked: WIFI is poor, but from what I heard from the grapvine, WIFI is a bit scarce around the whole town. To be honest, its not really a big setback, you come here for the nature.

Liked: Nice and clean, good dorm sizes, and a nice common area with a decent sized kitchen. There as a TV with lots of Music concert dvds, which was a really cool idea as the TV is in the main common area so films not always appropriate. You can complete many beautiful walks from this hostel.

Disliked: It is a bit overpriced. Looking on Hostel websites, it seems that it was about standard price for El Chalten, but we met people who had just booked into places when they arrived for much less.

Liked: A great hostel: comfortable dorms, a good common area, and a good kitchen. The owner, Sebastian, was very helpful -- giving us detailed weather forecasts and helping us decide which treks to do on which days to make the most of the likely weather while we were in El Chaltén: we were very grateful for his advice.

Disliked: There are no lockers, but at the same time, it's not the most likely place for thievery. There's not much in the way of power points in the dorm rooms (there was only one in ours), but there are some in the common areas, so you can charge your gear up there instead.

Liked: This place has real character - we loved it! Good atmosphere and easy access to town and trails. If you like rock music it's a particular must - the owner has music DVDs on most of the time (but not late, so it was never a nuisance)

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: A maid cleaned the rooms and the bathrooms every day. Beds were made too. There is a lovely view of the valley from the kitchen.

Disliked: The staff are not particularly friendly, spending much of the day surfing the web (which no guests are able to access). The kitchen is under equipped for the size of the hostel. There are four gas rings and no oven for the whole hostel.
