A little bit out of the centre but beautiful views more than make up for this. Friendly staff and simple, clean accommodation. WiFi was available for free in the rooms. The breakfast provided was more than adequate. There was a bit of noise due to the building being wooden but this didn't cause me any issues. I would stay here...

Nice place, a little bit noisy because floor and walls are made of wood. Bath too small. Free wi fi low signal in the rooms, better at the frontdesk. The hotel is located at the entrance of El Calafate, before cross the bridge turn to the right and go up to the hill, from the frontdesk you can see the...

+ A cosy hotel with a wooden interior. Helpful and friendly staff. OK breakfast. The only hotel on our 3 week Argentina trip that honestly charged us according to the official exchange rate (the quoted booking was in dollars) -A bit outside from the main area and up the hill.

It was fortunate that our bus broke 2 blocks from the hotel late at night otherwise the walk up the hill in the dark would have been an unpleasant experience. Our room was in the corner and so quiet unlike the "hall" rooms. When we arrived late, the woman at the desk was great and let us get to our...

The hosteria is on the outskirts of town on an unpaved street along with several others. There is a restaurant on the corner. It's an easy 10-minute walk to town. The rooms are very small but clean. There's a closet with a lock box that is large enough to hold cash and credit cards, a small refrigerator and a TV....

Small, cosy hotel sitting on a hill with good walking distance to town center. Breakfast was good, staff very friendly. Wi-fi included :). There are a couple of really good restaurants close by. The hotel itself might have a slightly simpler style but what are you in El Calafate for? Staying in your hotel room? :)

The hosteria is in a area, which looks very grabby. The face of hosteria looks much better. Inside everything is simple but clean. The bathroom is more or less just for slim person. The staff is extrem helpful and kindly and everybody speaks englich!! We booked via travel agent, therefor we are not able to have a idea of price-performance...

Room was clean, but the walls were even thinner than elsewhere we stayed which meant we didn't get the best nights' sleep. We could hear the next door neighbours turning over and snoring, and there were children elsewhere who we could hear running up and down the corridors. The outdoor area was nice, and the location was good (short walk...

The owner-family is extremely nice and will help you find/get anything, whether it be trying to get you on a last minute excursion, make you dietary restricted meals to go, or simply having cabs always waiting for you. A previous reviewers description of a "chalet disguised as a hostel" is fitting. Nothing crazy in terms of amenities: Beds & bathroom...

This hostel disguised as a chalet makes you feel at home immediately, with the wooden floors tables and walls. The atmosphere is relaxing, warm and cosy - So are the rooms.
