A lovely small hotel with loads of charm. The rooms are modern, perfectly clean and quiet. What makes Los Gnomos special is the staff. Everyone I interacted with was very knowledgeable, warm and personable. Easy walking distance to the city center in a quiet loation.

Very good spot to stay in El Calafate. Rooms were big and clean, the hostel staff were very friendly and helpful in sorting out the tour to the glacier, and the breakfast was outstanding. Only small negative is that the hostel's location is a 15 minute walk out of the centre of El Calafate - but an easy and safe...

Best staff around! We stayed two nights here and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a perfect jumping off spot for our Big Ice tour and the short walk into town was not bad at all. Rooms are decent size and bathrooms also comfortable enough. Breakfast was good, wifi worked great and the common areas were decorated so cute. The best...

We stayed here while visiting El Calefate. The rooms are simple but clean and comfortable and the breakfast quite good. Wifi was very good. Staff were mostly good and helpful. The walk into town is about 15 minutes even taking the short cut through the dirt track. Although it is out of town, occupying a front room meant it was...

Nice rooms, very clean and new. Super helpful friendly host. They helped us book a great trip to Perito Moreno with lots of other options available. The location is about a10 minute walk to the center, perfect to be out of the touristy center but still accessible. Great breakfast!!

A stay combinig peace and excursions- Clean room. Good breakfast. Young staff , very kind and helpful. They transmit their passion for hospitality, so as to offer the customer not just food but also pampering and attention. I felt at home. 15 min on foot to reach Calafate centre.

We were 3 friends traveling to see the Glaciers. Hostel was fine for our needs, which were minimal: clean rooms, bunk beds, decent bathrooms, wifi was decent for area (generally wifi and 3G service is awful in Calafate/Chalten). Definitely worth the $25-30 bucks a head, but do not pay more. Breakfast is fine but nothing elaborate. If you want lunch...

Very nice hotel with good value for money. The staff was very nice and did all they could to make our stay comfortable. The rooms are nice and the breakfast good with homemade bread. The hotel is located on a hill about a 10 min walk from the city center. We would stay here again if coming back to El...

We found a late deal online for a double en-suite room at Los Gnomos and compared to a lot of other accommodation it was reasonably priced. The hostel is very clean and looks almost new! The room was a generous size with plenty of storage and had a large en-suite with lovely hot shower. The breakfast was delicious, there was...
