Hostería El Puma
Chalten (Chalten, Argentina)
One of El Chalten’s most charming lodges set at the foot of Monte Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre, and the convergence of the area’s trailheads. It has a warm, friendly atmosphere and very helpful staff.
This small hosteria has 12 rooms and is owned by mountain guide, Alberto Del Castillo.
Client comments and reviews
Hosteria El Puma seems to be way out of town but is less than a 10 minute walk to the centre. This meant that at night it was very comfortingly quiet. All the staff were exceptionally helpful, although their English was limited at times. Although very well situated for the starting point for most hikes, it is not the best equipped for trekkers – there is no drying room, no plugs and the hot water is limited at times. However, all of this is completely understandable, given the remote location, and we managed without problems. - PJ (March 2017)
