Based on other reviews we booked this place. Overall it is OK. Alejandra was very helpful in finding us a bus to El Calafate late in the day after our trekking at Viedma glacier. She also exchanged money for us at very reasonable rate. The only problem was the breakfast. It was kind of misleading when the ad says breakfast...

the four of us stayed in a two bedroom cabana (cabin) with full kitchen. The man owner doesn't speak great English, but was very helpful and friendly. We had great views of the mountains, and were able to walk everywhere, even with all luggage. He recommended an Argentinian restaurant nearby where we got 10% off for mentioning his name (he...

We had a three night stay in El Chalten in March 2012. The cabin was cosy and well appointed. Nothing fancy but everything worked. Great centre for hiking up to the mirador and then on to Lago Torre which we duly did and got soaked for our troubles. Even in the rain though, the glaciated scenery and the Magellanic forest...

I stayed with my family (6 pax), and everything was perfect. Cabins are comfortably heated (not a minor detail given the temperature outside), and the quality of sleep is absolute, with the most confortable beds I've found outside from home. Our arrival was uneasy since it seemed to be "closed" (it is a family run business and there is not...

I stayed here in January 2008 & 2009. We enjoyed these small cabins and had several BBQs. For a short the stay, the cabin is basic but with such amazing views what more do you need. The kitchen and bathroom were clear and worked perfectly. the town is very small so it's not far to visit the shops or head...

We stayed at El Puesto Sur cabanas for four nights recently. The owner who I communicated with via email gave us a great discount and was very helpful even though she was overseas. The centrally located cabanas are pretty much all the same, but the two front ones have the best direct views of both Cerro Torre and FitzRoy if...

We stayed in one of the El Puesto Sur cabanias (bungalows) in El Chalten, in the Argentinian Glacier National Park. Great central location, and nice accommodation.

We stayed at El Puesto Sur over the winter holiday this year and it was great! Easy walk to the Fitz Roy trailhead and restaurants in the town. We rented a 2 bedroom cabin and it was well equipped with kitchen accessories, 'fridge, etc. Spacious shower, although the water got cold quickly. The owner was nice and gave us lots...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Warm, comfortable, well equipped, and well located bungalows, with a truly traditional Patagonian identity. During the 1990's, we studied the architecture of the Patagonian "estancias"" (ranches). This included the "puestos" - small dwellings far from the main estancia - where ranch personnel (gauchos) can stay while working in the Patagonian expanses. Thus inspired, we built El Puesto Sur as a tribute to traditional Patagonian architecture. Each cottage is equipped for 4 - 6 people. Breakfast included. ... more   less
