As with all of the hotels in El Chalten, the Hosteria Kalenshen is a small hostel is located just off the main road through town! A fairly simple hotel with fair sized rooms and communal area, they have given it an air of the Alpine through use of varnished wood throughout. Like we say, it is good for those of a budget.

As with quite a few of the hotels in the village, the Kalenshen has been built with walkers and backpackers in mind and so is a fairly simple affair.

The first thing that strikes on arrival is the design of the hotel. On the outside, it features a strong tone of green. On the inside, they have gone for an alpine, varnished wood feel with local Lenga wood on show throughout. It is not that we don’t like what they have done with the place, but it is not really to our taste!

The hosteria does, however, have a few redeeming features. The main entrance and communal area is nice enough although not really somewhere that you would look to relax of an afternoon. Similarly, the dining room upstairs is a simple affair.

This theme continues into the bedrooms that are simple but certainly adequate.

Good location, good value for money, facilities
