So, you are off! You have just decided to travel to El Chalten, and from now on your choices are easier, especially concerning your housing.
Rancho Grande is a pioneer, and still the best hostel in Chalten. Strategically situated near all trekking paths, it offers your choice of shared bedrooms or private rooms, kitchen facilities, baggage storage, safe box, internet service, laundry, restaurant, and best of all, Rancho Grande (widely known as Rancho) is the best place to meet people from all around the world, make new friends, share some beers and watch sports or movies.
The recipe is simple, take your favorite London or Irish Pub, throw some sports bar in the mix, add a little spice of a club scene and what you get is the main room of Rancho.
Dont forget you can also taste the big and famous Bife Rancho or Milanesa Rancho. Both are ideal to replenish your energy after trekking the surrounding area, or maybe you can take a bite of the sweet pastries offered at the bar counter.
The bi-lingual staff at the hostel will do their best to make your stay at Rancho comfortable and cozy. They will offer you the whole panorama you need to enjoy your trip, information regarding places to visit, things to do and not to do, the ins and outs of the area, and trendy suggestions. They are a mix of reception staff, weather forecasters, traffic cops and gpss, and want to make your trip fun and enjoyable.
The staff can also book excursions and accommodations in El Calafate. They sell bus tickets to almost everywhere in Patagonia, and even book airline flights from their travel offices near the entrance of the town.
Rancho sits proudly along the main avenue in Chalten and shares it grounds with the neighboring Zafarrancho Music Bar, that opens nightly as a pub and throws a couple of parties weekly, so if you miss the night life of the city, you have no excuse. The mainly thematic parties have plenty of girls, boys or whatever you like to interact with, available.
As you can see, your choice of where to stay is simple. The only downside is that you must book in advance, specially in high season (September to January). So, pack your stuff and come to Rancho Grande, we are waiting for you with all of our amazing amenities.
You will be rewarded with an unforgettable experience and for sure once you have been here, you will be back for another round!!!


Modern, clean and spacious with kitchen facilities, a restaurant/bar, internet access and laundry.

We hope you choose to stay with us. Our friendly, multi-lingual staff will be waiting for you!

We're sure you will not want to leave!!
