The BEST shower in all of Patagonia!!
I loved my stay here! The bed was comfortable, the closet had plenty of room for my gear and a safe, and the shower! Oh my God. When you’ve just hiked 14 miles, the shower in this Hosteria is the best. I’ve lived in many places in the world and in the United States and the water pressure in this shower was the best. The staff was super helpful before my arrival with info (via WhatsApp) and after I arrived (guidance on hikes, dinner, etc). I had their packed lunch which was good. Breakfast was pastries/toast, eggs, yogurt, fruit, etc. Very close to Laguna Torre trek but a little bit of a walk from Laguna de los Tres trek. They did my laundry for my while I was out trekking one day which was great. I would def stay here again!!!

Cute little B&B kind of property. The staff is super friendly and helpful. The complimentary breakfast (especially the homemade yogurt) was so good and the $10 packed lunches they offer were convenient for taking on-the-go. Comfy bed and the water pressure in the shower was phenomenol. Seriously the BEST shower I took while in Patagonia. I'd definitely stay here again when in El Chalten.

Quiet, great value, comfortable
Stayed in the quiet detached bungalow. This seems to be brand new and it was very quiet. There was an EXCELLENT breakfast and this was a perfect base for our treks into the nearby mountains. WiFi could be faster but can’t really complain considering the location. It’s a bit further of a walk from most restaurants/bars but that means 3-5mins more than elsewhere. Definitely the best option in town for the price

A truly wonderful place that became my home for the week I was in Patagonia. It's rare to receive such an amazing personal attention from staff in a hotel. Great location, great breakfast, lovely rooms but most importantly - fabulous people running it! Thank you!

Las chicas q coordinan el hotel brindan un servicio superlativo. La atención a los detalles para q la experiencia de los clientes sea única fue inigualable ( botella de champagne cuando regresamos de la noche de navidad para todos los huéspedes, desayuno especial cuando el transfer es a las 6 am, etc) siempre están un paso adelante ..

Tati and Eugenia were wonderful and very helpful! Tati was able to accommodate us for a very late check in, she also booked our taxi to el pillar the next morning. Eugenia was just as helpful with everything and was very nice too! The hotel is nice, clean, breakfast was great! The lobby has an artistic touch to it, the owner Paz is a painter. The room is nice, spacious, has hot water, clean and quiet. Will definitely stay here again :)
