We stayed there two nights. The staff started out by stating to us as we came that they are over-booked and it's not their fault. After a while we figured out a solution(there were free rooms- they just didn't check!!). One night at 00:00 the receptionist started yelling at us for making noise- one minute only after we sat down!...

My two friends and I stayed in the 12 person room. The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms were large. They always seemed to be missing toilet paper though. The kitchen was very under stocked and was even missing soap at one point. However, the price and overall comfort was great.

Stayed 3 nights at a private room and have to say Che Lagarto has the best hot shower you ever dreamed of after a long day of trekking and a very very comfortable bed, excellent mattress. In addition the reception is extremely friendly and even helped me save a paid reservation to go to EL Chalten where we had a...

We were in the 12 beds dormitory, and it was not good. Room is too small for that many beds, you don't have much space for your bags, and there are only tiny lockers outside the room. There is heating in the bedroom, but obviously they don't know how to use it since people keep opening the windows; even during...

Great hostel, great music and atmosphere. The design of the place is very energetic, the restaurant is a nice addition. I used the offered organized promotion for el chalten, they had mistakes and disinformation, saying the room is for 4 people but was for 6. They overcharged me. But when I used their services it was great. The staff is...

It's new and looks nice, a building perfectly suits the hostelling business, but they totally should employ more cleaning staff! The place was just dirty and the bathrooms - disgusting. Apart from that - OK, nice and helpful people at the reception.

Good staff, with nice information service. They also can buy all the tours for you (but you pay more than if you do it by yourself). People are all so helpfull! Good laundry service. Sometimes in the week, music and special dinners in the common area! There is a nice place outside the building for smokers. They also have many...

It is very noise even after the mid night so we barely could sleep. Usually people, like us, are going to El Calafate for a trekking which is starting very early - by saying that we tried to go to sleep early (around 11ish) but because they are playing a trance/ reggae music in the lounge till after the mid...

Che Lagarto is a chain of guesthouses in various towns in Argentina. I stayed in one of them, in El Calafate. This guesthouse is rather large and attracts many young and independent travelers. Even our occasional companions in a taxi from airport happened to go in the same guesthouse with me. Positive side of this accommodation was good central location,...
