We had about a week in El Chalten and decided to split it up between this accommodation (near the east entrance of the los glaciares fnational park) and another one in town. Hosteria El Pilar is closer to the Lago de los tres and Glacier Rio Blanco walks, while El Chalten town is closer for walks to Laguna Torre and many other walks (as well as being more convenient for ice treking trips on Glacier Viedma and more dinning options). We had to go over budget a bit to stay here, but it was worth it.
Good: great room decor, modern bathroom, very friendly and helpful service, good breakfast with fresh fruits, free transfer to/from town at check-in/check-out and 3 course dinner available in their restaurant (at a cost of AR120 a person: a bit expensive). Note dinner service ends at 9.30pm so you can't get back from your hike too late.
Bad: Expensive to go into town (taxi cost AR120 one-way) so we just dined at their restaurant while we were there, no TV (good or bad), bathroom in Room 10 tight squeeze, Dinner service slow, upstairs footstep noises can be heard from our downstairs room (wooden floorboards).
We made some friends (fellow travelers) at the hosteria and had a look at their room. Some rooms were a lot more spacious, especially the bathroom, compared to others. We stayed in room 10. The view from the room was of the back garden of the lodge, so not much of one.
