Very good 8.0
Nice Hostel needing better breakfast and WiFi
The hostel was nice. The room was adequate for what we paid and had nice furnishings.the staff were nice and helpful as well. One thing that we were very disappointed about was that the hostel claimed it had WiFi but we never got it to work the entire time we stayed (3 nights). Also, I’m not sure if the people of Argentina are not big on breakfast but you may want to plan on getting breakfast elsewhere as the “breakfast” they offer is subpar at best.

Lovely views from this hotel
We had a lovely stay at this hotel. It is a little out of the way but we knew that and enjoyed the view and the serenity. The staff were pleasant and very helpful with food allergies. The wifi was intermittent but when asked the staff seemed to be able to fix it. We really recommend the restaurant Mirabelle opposite the entry to the nature reserve.

Fair 4.0
Mobiliario muy viejo. Lejos del centro
El hotel está lejos de el centro de El Calafate. No hay nada cerca, ya que está en lo alto de un cerro. Hay que coger el coche para ir al centro. La decoración del hotel y los muebles de las habitaciones, son MUY ANTIGUOS, y no le vendría nada mal renovarlos todos. El desayuno deja bastante que desear. Por otro lado la persona de recepción super amable y servicial.
