Off Season

La Gringa Carioca Hostel off-season runs from June to October. If you plan to stay at La Gringa Carioca Hostel during the off-season, please keep in mind that it is a different experience than during the busy tourist season.  While Patagonia is still romantic and beautiful during the Spring and Fall, the weather will be colder and wetter and the town will be quieter with much fewer tourist activities and services available. Those staying at the hostel can expect to be gathering around the stove during the evenings and donning a sweater at times, even while indoors.

During the off-season we are only open to guests who make reservations.  If you are interested in staying at the bed and breakfast during the off-season it is imperative that you call ahead and make a reservation.  More effort is involved in preparing the bed and breakfast for guests during these months due to the weather, staff availability, heating requirements, etc.

Last Minute Travelers:
