“Friendly comfortable family run hosteria”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

We stayed two nights here on a recent Patagonian trip with a group of seven. The rooms are large and comfortable, and the bathroom we had was probably the most spacious one we had in Argentina, with bath and shower over. It was cool when we arrived, and the whole place was nicely warm. There was a large living/ dining area with an open fire that was nice in the evening. Breakfast is served (toast, semilunas, ham cheese) and there are many restaurants nearby. You can also use the glasses etc to gather for drinks, and there is a barbecue in the yard that our group used for a magnificent traditional asado on our last night there. Hector, the host, is very friendly and helpful.
The location is good for the hike we did to Laguna de los Tres, and for the start of many of the other walks.

We stayed at Posada Altas Cumbres for three nights. The owners were on holiday and their son managed the rooms in the meantime. He was very friendly and helpful.
It seems they built some new rooms recently and we stayed in one of those. It was the largest room we had in Patagonia so far and the whole place was very clean. Breakfast was similar to the other places in Argentina we have been to, Toast, Jam, Coffee, Tea and Cornflakes.

Good place to stay at El Chalten with comfortable and clean rooms at a decent price. The owners are very friendly, only the breakfast could be a bit better. They also have a lot of information about the area

Beds here were very comfortable and rooms were a good size with plenty of space to spread out your hiking gear. Bathrooms varied in size across our group but all had toilet, sink and shower over a bath with plenty of hot water. The dining room is nice and large with plenty of tables and facilites to make tea and coffee outside breakfast hours. There was also a huge fireplace in the dining room but it wasn't cold enough to light a fire when we were there. The breakfast provided was typical of what you get in Argentina - bread, butter, jam, ham, cheese, croissants and tea and coffee - nothing flash but there was plenty there so no one walked away hungry.
It is on the outer edge of town (the edge that is closer to the start of the popular day trek to Laguna de los Tres - a big plus at the end of a long day hiking!) but Chalten isn't exactly a huge town, so everything is close to everywhere. Plenty of mini markets, a few hiking shops and great restaurants withing stone's throw however so no need to walk the kilometre or so into town if you don't feel like it.

We had a group of 11 and had 3 nights there. Can't complain about much and we all enjoyed our stay. Heater worked fine, shower pressure & hot water was fine, beds were comfortable and the place was very clean. Yes, breakfast was toast, excellent croissants, tea or coffee, the urbiquitous cheese and ham and cordial which is what you get in this type of accommodation in Argentina. They had no problem with us using their fridge for storing perishables so we had our own cereal and milk. The owners couldn't have been more helpful. One day our trek was postponed for some hours due to rain and they let us have our picnic lunch in the dining area, so we cleaned up to help them out. Evening drinks (our own!) in the common area was welcomed and we could buy beer from them at low prices. Location was about 1 km from the centre...hardly need a car to get down there, but there a fine places to eat close by anyway.
All in all would stay there again.

Reviewed 20 April 2009

We (2 adults, one 14 year old) stayed for 3 nights in April 2009. We were the last guests prior to the hostel closing for winter. We had a 3 bed room in the newer part of the hostel. It was big (good), but sparsely furnished. The heated floor was good, while the low water volume coming out of the shower not so good. The beds and pillows were not comfortable. We know el Chalten is expensive, but something more than orange cordial, toast, jam and coffee would be appreciated for breakfast, especially given the most guests are heading out for some energetic activities. And there are no guest kitchen facilities - not even tea/coffee available after breakfast - unless ordered. Mostly it was the skimpy breakfast that gave us the "inadequate value" perception. (especially after having stayed at the fantastic Posada Palermo just prior - see our other review). Maybe it was just because it was 'end of the season', but the staff seemed unmotivated - most things a chore. Glad we had a rental car because the posada is up the top end of town - about a kilometer from the main shopping area. If on foot, a bit inconvenient to pop out to eat etc. But hey, the scenery around el Chalten is so overwhelmingly fantastic maybe all the hostels feel it OK to underdo the accommodation! Don't miss visiting this awesome location!!!
