Travelling north by bicycle. Nice place to stop and pitch the tent in between empty windswept landscape of Patagonia in winter. Was able to take a shower, free. Wifi available, cellular service available. Small shop. Able to recharge power bank. Refill multi fuel stove. Pitched my tent out back near lodgings, out of the wind with some privacy. Grassy area behind but full of dog shit. Be wary of semi ferrel cats roaming around the bins behind kitchen.

Just stopped for fuel and coffee. No drinking water, just bathroom taps. No infinity diesel left, but they did take master card.

Ok place as there are no other options around and even there are a lot of trucks around it was quit during the night. However, showers are out of order, internet doesn’t work, but in the morning they have medialunas and coffee.

We stayed in the big parking area behind the station. Super quiet. Toilets for free and open all night. Wifi really slow.

It was a noisy night for us at least. A lot of cars and trucks stopping all night and making sounds with their engines. Free hot showers, really good. Wifi and I could connect our power in the power outlet in men bathroom. Stopped on the left side of building next to the wall

Report Check-In

Free hot showers (men’s under renovation, only women’s working) and fairly decent wifi (occasionally slow). We parked and set up our rooftop tent along the brick wall behind the hotel and restaurant where it was sheltered from the wind (if you’re facing the shop go around the building to the right). Not too noisy, just the occasional loud truck parking.

Best fuel station in Patagonia! We did not stay overnight but took a free shower and used the decent WiFi to video chat with our family. And when we asked if there was any verduleria close to buy some onions for the Christmas meal they gave us some from the kitchen of the restaurant! Great persons.

Extremely fast wifi (youtube hd streaming). Libre, no password. Parked the jeep next to restaurant and had a very quiet night! Espresso was ok, not great. Nice looking YPF overall.

THIS IS THE BEST OPTION ON RUTA 3, coming from Rio Gallagos, so far. I stopped to all others and decided this one was good to call home.
