Great little place close to the start of Laguna de Los Tres and Laguna Torre trails. Quick walk to the main street. Rooms are large and very comfortable. Nice fireplace in the lobby! The best of all is the wonderful staff, always available to help and answer questions.

Great location, accommodation and friendly staff. Would have given more stars if in house restaurant was not too expensive. They count on you being too tired to walk into town so they charge like a wounded bull

Best location at just a few hundred meters from the beginning of the hiking ways. The quality of the food and drinks served at breakfast was very good! The staff is very friendly and always ready to provide help!

We weren't feeling well when we checked in, and the staff could not have been more helpful or friendly. Rocio even rushed out from her home on her day off to wish us well as we drove off to spend a few nights at Hosteria El Pilar! These are super nice people. Our room was quiet and comfortable, and we...

This hotel was located in a convenient location in the small town of El Chalten. The Staff was extremely friendly and accommodating and the lounge/dinner area are wonderful. The hotel rooms and bathrooms were a little small and there was no TV in the rooms to watch. We were only here for two nights so we didn't mind it too...

El Chaltén seems to be transitioning from sleepy hikers enclave to a true tourist destination. Infrastructure is improving, bars are popping up, and buses make their way in and out most days. As the personality of the town changes, it's wonderful to stay at a place like Hosteria El Puma. It preserves all the best qualities of the original lodges,...

We stayed in the Torre room, 4 nights. It's a brisk walk in the high winds to some of the trailheads for trekking but overall, a superb location. The breakfasts are hearty with fine yogurt, strong coffee, tasty breads and preserves. Staff members speak English quite well and helped us with LANTAM boarding passes the day of departure. The walk...

Really lovely hotel/ hostel to stay in. Boyfriend and I were here for 2 days and would happily come back again. Very beautiful lodge, clean and safe, good amenities (although the shower water was a little bit on the cold side), a nice fireplace in the lobby, and easy laundry service for a very reasonable price. It's slightly less central...
