The B&B is very nice. Beautiful views of the mountain range and lake. A ten minute walk, including two sets of stairs, to the center of town. Very clean and breakfast is provided. The hosts are not very friendly.

We had the best experience here! This is the best place to stay in Patagonia due to the view from up on the hill you get, as well as it's walking distance proximity to downtown. This is a simple B&B that has everything you need and gives you a true Patagonia experience without the bells and whistles. The owners take you under their wing and make you feel like their children for the duration of your stay. They make you breakfast every morning and will even pack you lunches for your excursions each day. They booked all our excursions for us and gave us dinner recommendations for each evening. I will be back to stay here for sure!

South B&B is run by Javier and Andrea who are brother and sister. Plus Pablo who takes care the breakfast and three dogs entertain guests. We stayed for three days total but in separate stays. We enjoyed the family atmosphere. The view from the hotel is superb. The rooms were basic but sufficient. January the day time was long so we had plenty time to enjoy watching the sunset of El Calafate. They both speak Spanish, English and French and help guests for all the bookings. It was our base to travel around Patagonia and we had good restful days there.

Nice hotel for trekkers. Good breakfast. Better rooms are on upper floors to avoid early morning noise near the breakfast room. Location is good for people capable of climbing the hill from downtown and those with a car.
