Large, comfortable room in excellent location for starting the trails. Friendly and helpful staff. Only concerns are that the lunch box was big enough for 2 people and we had ordered two of them. As they were quite expensive this was a bit of an issue. Also, on returning from a very wet, though wonderful, walk, we found that there...

Thanks a lot for your comments! Too bad you did not find a place for drying your clothes. Havent you tried to hang your wet clothes in the bathroom, where there were a place just for that (towels or clothes)?! Kind regards Hosteria El Puma team

El Puma is oozing with charm and warmth. The staff are extremely welcoming and friendly and are central to the charisma of this place. If you need breakfast earlier than the standard 7:30am, just ask and they will accomodate you. The rooms are simple and clean with very comfortable beds which feel amazing after a long hike. We had a...

El Puma is a very comfortable, clean Hosteria in a quiet part of El Charlton. The staff are friendly and helpful and the rooms are spacious and well equipped. It is conveniently located to all the town's major attractions.

Of all the hotels we visited in Torres del Paine and El Chalten, El Puma was our favorite. The rooms had so much character with the brick walls and wood ceiling. Extra added bonus for us was the bathtub and the towel warmer which made it easy to hand wash clothes and hang for quick dry. Breakfast was basic but...

Very friendly, cosy hosteria with nice clean rooms, and well placed out of the main street but close to the start of trails. The breakfast yoghurt was amazing. Staff helpful and knowledgeable, gave us the right advice about when to go on the walk to the Fitzroys, to get the best views.

I stayed at El Puma with my sister and mother for two nights. The room was very clean and spacious, and the hosts were very helpful (suggesting hikes/activities, calling taxis, suggesting restaurants, etc.) The breakfast is simple but sufficient, and there are many of books for pleasure reading/learning more about Patagonia in the front lounge.

Good location and clean rooms with a friendly staff. As others have noted, it is very conveniently located to the start of the Laguna de Los Tres or Torre trails, although the town is so small that it's not necessary to base your decision off that - everywhere in Chalten is pretty close to the trails.
