El Salto hostel opened its doors in El Chaltén in January 2021, just a few days ago! We have six shared rooms: 2 double TWIN, 1 double matrimonial, 2 triple and 1 quadruple. We know that you need to prepare and refrigerate your food, so we put at your disposal our well-equipped kitchen with an oven and gas stove, refrigerator and microwave. Relax in our spacious dining room, from where you can see a beautiful view of Los Cóndores viewpoint.

We are just 400 meters from the bus terminal (or entrance to the tourist village) so you will find supermarkets, bakeries, restaurants and bars a few steps away. El Salto is a family business, run by its owners.

We will wait for you!
