The place, the people, the setting - just amazing. If you're considering a visit to El Pilar - do it. The place is a gem. The accommodations are perfect in every way - the food is great, and Guillermo and Christina (your host and hostess) are just as nice and inviting and helpful as could be. Top that off with...

Guillermo & Christina will be your host at the base of the Fitzroy Masif, in the charming and perfect spot for day hiking through Chalten. They are lovely, hard working and fun loving people, they have a well-stocked bar and their chef puts together an exceptional menu. Hosteria el Pilar is at the start of a world class hike across...

A quaint and serene hotel with the most stunning views of the Fitzroy Massif from almost every window while you sleep, eat and relax. Located just a bit out of the main part of town, this hotel is unbelievable. First class dinners, extensive breakfast, superb bedrooms with all amenities one would need, small bar offering beer, wines and drinks, a...

This hotel is not in the town of Chalten but it is a perfect place to stay because it's close to the trails and has the best views of Fitzroy. But the REAL reason to stay here is because it is just beyond charming. The staff are super friendly, the fire and decor in the house are so inviting and...

I read about the Hoteria El Pilar in my guidebook and was exited to stay three nights outside the village of El Chaltén. The drive there on the gravel road was quite hefty and made a trip back and forth into town strenuous. I therefore decided to have dinner at the Hosteria. The food was simple but good, although a...

Beautiful and cosy Hosteria in the Natural Park of the El Chalten region, directly located at the trailhead of the Fitz Roy Base trail. The hosts are super friendly and helpful and I right away felt in love with the real owner of the place: the cat lady "Coca" :-). The rooms are very cosy and comfortable, with a beautiful...

This is our second stay at Hosteria El Pilar with the wonderful hosts, Guillermo and Cristina. We weren't feeling well, and they couldn't have tried harder to make our stay more comfortable. They're such nice people. Guillermo picked us up in town and drove us to the hosteria and later drove us in his spare time to the Rio Electrico...

This was our second stay at El Pilar and we came with our two children. I do not know why anyone would stay anywhere else. The places in El Chalten must be crowded. Here you are literally off the beaten track - expect no wifi, Internet or phone. However breakfast is included and you will pro ably want to eat...

We stayed here for three nights whilst on a trip to Patagonia. It's in a great location for walks - the Los Tres path is outside the front gate, and we also walked to the Piedra del Fraile hostel alongside the Rio Electrico (about a five hour round trip from the hosteria). Our room was plain but comfortable, with plenty...
