This really is the perfect spot to stay in while hiking in El Chalten. The rooms are warm and clean and Eduardo the owner is charming and helpful. The individual cabins are spaced apart, with a lovely lawn in between them, with a big table for eating outside when the sun is shining. The lawn also comes with deckchairs for...

My husband and in loved our stay in El Chalten at Posada La Base. We stayed for 7 days and could not have asked for more. Eduardo and his wife were very very helpful and Eduardo has excellent English (we have terrible Spanish). Our cabin was big and very clean, with queen size bed and a private bathroom, plus a...

We stayed a couple of nights at Posada La Base and if we’d go back to El Chalten we’d stay her again! This place has the right ‘laid back El Chalten feeling’. The rooms are in cabins which are set in the garden. They have a good size and are clean. In an equipped kitchen which you share with another...

Dear Eduardo - We really loved your posada, the atmosphere, the clean room, the useful kitchenett, the handy location and the inner grassy yard bathed with sunshine. If ever we get a chance to come back to Patagonia, we'll definitely visit you again :) We recommand La Base for anyone who wants to enjoy their stay in El Chalten and...

We found a very nice place to stay in a 2 pax cabin. There were two rooms with four single beds each. There is a bathroom and a kitchen with a dining room. Everything was provided to cook for ourselves. Note however, that buying ingredients can be difficult in Calten, as there are very few supermarkets. Would stay again!

Pluses: Well-equipped kitchen. Owner is very friendly. Price is competitive. Excellent DVD and video collection in the room above reception. Minus: The free internet is slower than snail pace. The plusses far outweigh the minuses.
