1/2 - El Chalten
I arried here at 21:30 immediatejy went to hear Ido about the carratera. He made a great show, telling it is for young people, not for us. Dina stays in another hostel, 1km away. She came here later, and we decided we have no other choice to go to the caratera
I stay in a lovely place - many Israelis and others.

Hiking Capital of Argentina

One eighteen hour bus wasn't bad, but after two days strait of twelve hour rides, I was getting antsy. Even the multiple stops (which were said to be 20 minutes but were more like 35), didn't help. At about 9:00 pm on the second day on Ruta 40, we finally reached El Chalten. Good thing that it's the hiking capital of Argentina, because my legs …

Perito Moreno gletsjer en Fitz Roy

A travel blog entry by doriekeensander

Buenos Dias, 50 meter hoog (hoger dan ons appartementencomplex), 5 km lang en 30 kilometer diep! Dit zijn de afmetingen van de Glaciar Perito Moreno vlakbij El Calafate in Argentinie. De gletsjer is gigantisch, maar waar deze vooral bekend om is zijn de gigantische ijsschotsen die regelmatig afbreken. Doordat de gletsjer dagelijks 1-2 meter naar …

Am Sonntag morgen ging es dann im Bus nach El Chaltén. Vorher mussten wir jedoch noch zum Flughafen, um jemanden abzuholen, der Probleme mit dem Flug hatte. Offensichtlich war meine Sorge um meinen Flug nicht so unbegründet. Auf dem Weg zum Flughafen hat das Auto auf einmal komische Geräusche gemacht. Wie sich herausstellte, hatten wir einen Stein …

There is no way in this day and age you can say your homesick. Its all about connection!! But the wrong kinds of connections. Guilty as charged!! I sit here on Facebook on my phone and checking Viber, What's app and Instagram. I know everything from home and who's sitting infront of a roaring fire on a cold night with a bottle of wine ;-) This is …

Cute and cozy

Cozy hostel, good atmosphere. It's a great place to come back to after a long day hiking. They offer food and have bar, which is nice. The rooms and bathrooms are kept clean as well. Since it was high season, it was a little on the expensive side for a hostel (but it's nicer than most). Also, the internet is really slow and you pay to use the computers.

Not worth the money

Reviewed Jan 12, 2012
by (2 reviews) Lawrence , United States Flag of United States

We were fairly disappointed with the hostel. Its really huge and can fit well over 150 people and has only one very small kitchen and three semi working small fridges. Breakfast isnt included and the showers kind of work. In the evening youre lucky if you get a small stream of water and forget about hot water...Not worth the money!
