Excellent oasis to rest and enjoy the peaceful environment, views of flamingoes, black-neck swans and many other birds

by janelovel33 on 24 Jan 2017 (Friends Traveller)

Very comfortable Hostel and staff who couldn't have been more helpful. Perfect for our transition from hiking to the next stage our journey and holiday in Patagonia and so convenient for the Perito Moreno Glacier tour and visit to the excellent Glacarium Museum. A 45 minute walk along the promenade into town on the hostel's free shuttle bus.

Peace away from town centre

If you want the opportunity to observe Patagonian birdlife from the comfort of your warm room, this is the place. Los Helios is situated away from El Calafate town centre, by Lago Argentino and we found this to be a bonus. Flamingoes huddle in the water in front of the hotel and ibises are forever present, pecking the lawn.

Cute hotel but it needs some improvements

by LorenaFortuna on 12 Dec 2016 (Friends Traveller)

The hotel is located about 5 min drive from downtown Calafate. They offer a shuttle service which is nice if you don't have a car. The hotel looks cute and cozy but it needs some improvements.

These minor issues could easily be fixed and would make our stay much more pleasant. The breakfast was good and they prepare lunch boxes for hikes.

Close to nature, Lago Argentino and the pink flamingos...

Nice place on the outside of town

by Steve B on 18 Feb 2016 (Couple Traveller)

We ended up here by accident- could not get fuel for the car due to the strike and our original place was booked for the night. It's a nice place on the edge of town, close to the lake with views of the lake. Nice open airy room. Clean and functional. Nice big lounge area, excellent breakfast. Glad they had an extra room that night in the peak of season. Thanks!
