LA LOMA is an ESTABLISHMENT in which coexist two types of accommodation: The Inn, which offers two different categories: Standard and Superior, both with housekeeping service. The Hostel, which has private rooms named Economy, and also shared rooms (with private bathrooms), both without housekeeping service. The “SELF” concept allows you to manage yourself as if you were in a rented apartment, have keys of the front door and your room, be able to come in with food and eat it in the common areas or your room. Breakfast is not included. You have at your disposal a fully equipped Guest Kitchen from 6,30PM to 10PM. We are only 100m away from supermarket and the main street. Reception works from 2PM to 10PM. Check-in starts at 15hs. Your HOST will take your data, charge your stay and give you an emergency contact number. The common areas close at 10PM. From that time on, there will not be available staff. Free Wi-Fi in common areas, Indoor heated pool, Guest kitchen and Pool table.

I was almost tempted not to leave a review here for fear of the resulting retribution! Seen a couple of responses from management and they appear to be on the defensive (kind of expected). I will try to give a decent review that is representative of my stay here: Anyway there

We booked a private room thinking it was a hostel. Upon arrival, we realised this wasn't really a hostel, more of a guesthouse or a weird hybrid. Although the room is cheap, you pay for extras like breakfast. We couldn't really use the kitchen, but the staff were happy enough

Hello Jemma, The first thing I should do is to thank your kind comments! Actually we have two sectors: one is hotel and the other is a hostel, what happened is that when you came we were just doing a remodeling in the guest kitchen and that is why it was complicated to cook. Of course we have lent you all the utensils you needed to make up for the lack of cooking. Only one of your expressions generated a minimum of concern ... but I hope that when you mentioned the image of "an old aunt" you referred to our furniture and our taste for antiques. Yes ... sure it was about that! Thanks again and we hope to have you here again (with our remodeled guest kitchen!)

I'd give this 3.5 stars but that seems to harsh. Decent sized, comfortable and clean room (private double w/ensuite) at a decent price. Two blocks off the main street in Calafate at one end of town. Nice art on the walls. Didn't have breakfast there so can't speak for it. Staff

Hello, Sincere apologies for the inconvenience with the internet. We understand that today guests need wifi as much as water! Do not think we did not have a hurry to solve it, it's just that we knew how to look calm during a major problem. Fortunately since then it has been fixed and works perfectly! Greetings,

Saying this is a bad choice is a compliment. Owners are bullies, they don't know the meaning of Service. They just don't care; why? Demand is higher than the offering, it is up to the people to spread the word to shut down this tourist trap/overpriced/unhealthy place. They even

Dear Jaime, Let's be honest ... One person can not book a double room and then come with more people! Some controversy is expected, do not you think? With regard to rates for foreigners since last season, none pay the vat, meaning that they pay 21% less than Argentine guests. It is true that we do not pretend to represent all Argentines, that function in our country is met by other people. But it is not true that we do not care about the opinions of those who visit us. We know from experience that the places we visit are remembered for our experience and that is especially related to the people we met there. To remain honest ... we thought our future guests would feel better if they did not know you. Thank you in advance for taking our order into account.

I have read here that the hotel was not rated very favourably. My own experience, staying for two nights in a hostel accommodation (shared) was quite successful Breakfast: Punctual, starting at 6:30. Abundant and very good quality. Room: A three bedroom shared with only one

Hello. Is there a safe or secure box in the room?
Si ustedes llegan a las 2hs del día 25 tienen una habitación reservada desde las 15hs del día 24-1, porque tiene que estar disponible solo para ustedes. En cuanto a la salida, ¿el vuelo es el 30-1 a las 2hs o el 31-1 a las 2hs? Lo pregunto porque se presta a confusiones. Un saludo,

""Superior" rooms may be OK; I wouldn't touch the "standard" rooms with a barge pole."
