    Great staff that made us feel welcome from check in and provided great info on all treks, accommodated us on extending our stay twice, booked originally for 3 nights and stayed for 6 Beginning of laguna de torre and fitz roy close to hostel Good food in the restaurant with 10% off for hostel stayers on the already reasonably priced menu, huge portions Cleaners seem to be constantly going, bathrooms always clean and beds made every day Hot powerful showers Lockers in rooms I read reviews that the 24hr restaurant can be noisy but we didn't hear anything from it Cant imagine theres anywhere better to stay in El Chalten!

    Literally only bad thing your told the upstairs area is for hostel use only but that's not true, all tables are reserved for outside groups at lunch time, one day we had nowhere to sit to eat, with people from groups even taking up the couches upstairs. There should be a small area sectioned off for hostel use only at all times as the groups can completely take over anywhere from 1pm to 4pm. Not generally an issue seeing that most people are out hiking all day but if you have a down day like we did due to one of us being sick, theres no common area. Kitchen could do with more utensils which I read in other reviews but over the few days I think what was happening is people leaving their dirty plates and cutlery for it to be picked up with the restaurant tables rather than clean them themselves so stuff is going back to the restaurant rather than the hostel kitchen! Anything that I couldn't get in the kitchen they had no problem giving me from the restaurant.

    People at the front desk were fantastic.

    The place was a little worn down.

    The room was very spacious and clean. The bed was much bigger than we expected. The service from Diana was excellent. There is 24/7 restaurant at the hostel.

    We felt super welcome and really enjoyed our stay at Rancho Grande. The staff is always helpful and attentive. The location is close to all the hiking trails in El Chaltén. There is a possibility to cook your own meals or to use the restaurant which is quite convenient after a day hike (the restaurant is open all day long). The prices in the restaurant are good and the portions are big. We would definitely come back if we were another time in El Chaltén!

    Around midday when there are a lot of people in the restaurant the Wifi can be slow at some times. The bathrooms are a bit out of date but they are currently remodelling the building. In the kitchen could be some more utensils to cook but it is sufficient to cook easy meals.

    I don’t usually leave reviews but I couldn’t not for the Rancho Grande. The staff made my stay. From Ari throughout the team I received a service which was probably the best I have ever received. It felt like I was part of the family as soon as I arrived. From giving me tips about the trails to general advice it was first class. The food there was amazing and hearty after a day on the hill, with the hostel being in the perfect location for all the hikes. I would definitely recommend to anyone staying in El Chalten.
