fiquei por aí uma noite, eles deixam pernoitar a frente do hotel, são muitos simpáticos, e o posto de gasolina tem água para abastecer o equipamento de viagem.
I stayed there one night, they let you stay overnight in front of the hotel, they are very friendly, and the gas station has water to supply your travel equipment.

Don’t go here!! We ate here, which was okay, but were priced extremely high afterwards. She asked 5.000 for a Pepsi! Not fair and she became very rude. Looked into bedrooms was very old and bad. Better go to the gas station.

Now quite run down. A couple of bedrooms 800 pesos per person and camping 500 per tent. Standard food + beers. Not really any facilities, showers. Hotel with pretty well stocked shop (pasta etc) that also offered free camping on their not wind protected patio.

A very nice place with really kind people working here. The food and beverages are a decent price and much cheaper than any other location in this village. The milanesa sandwich was actually very large and well worth the 350 pesos. I slept in a room with a shared bathroom for 400 pesos. That is a cheap price compared with the other hotel in town. The wifi is really fast as well.

We walked into the enfermería or 'nursery' (as described in maps.me) and started chatting with JC. He said he now constantly receives travellers and seemed a little tired of it but was nice. He offered us to sleep in his house on a mattress and the use of very slow wifi and TV. He currently has no hot water or shower. It was really cold and we kinda wished we slept in the car but it was nice to sit at a table indoors without wind. We used our own cooker inside the house but there is a kettle available. He showed us briefly where everything was and went back to the nursery. We saw him in the morning as he was leaving town. Money was never mentioned. Good alternative to a tent but not necessarily to a motorhome. Lots of parking available.

arrived at 21h in the place and Juan Carlos arrived after 2mins.
2000 pesos chillean for sleeping protected from the wind, cook and eat inside in a warm place with chairs, table, banos. you can take a warm shower.
this is not very clean but when you arrived from Chili at the end of the day, with no pesos Arg. is SO USEFUL!!

We arrived at 9:30pm from Chile, first went to get some fuel and only had Chilean money, the guy there was very rude and ripped us off very badly with the exchange rate and then wanted around US$60 to stay at the hotel. We wouldn’t have minded paying if he was nicer and more helpful, but decided to go for a look around. Stumbled across this camping and was trying to find out some information on iOverlander when we heard a guy walking along whistling. It was Juan Carlos to the rescue! He took us to a house where we could sleep in a room with hot water, we wanted to cook and he said it’d be better if we came to the hospital where he lived and use the kitchen there as it has more stuff. He also said we could exchange some money with him too, it would have saved being ripped off for fuel! He ended up doing all the cooking for us! Wouldn’t let us help, we just used his wifi and drank Maté and then he brought out a nice pasta dish!
It was so great to discover someone so nice after such a long day. He said for anyone coming through to go to the hospital or ask around for him, or in our case he may even just find you!

We arrived in Bajo at midday and we asked for gasoline but the hotel-fuel station was run out of it!!! So we were obliged to remain in Bajo. We went to Juan camping, he is a very nice person, very very kind with us!!! He has hot showers, toilets and a sort of dining room where it is possible to cook and wash dishes.
He offers also a very very fast Wi-Fi.
Recommended!!!

We were forced to stay in this town because of mechanical problems. Not the best place to be stuck, but luckily Juan Carlos lives there. He is tremendously helpful in everything you may need. For us he organized a tow truck to Perito Moreno. We could use the (fast!) WiFi in the clinic and there is also a sort of common room were you can cook and hang out. Nothing were one would freely spend lot's of time, but we were very grateful for the facilities as a snowstorm blew through town. Though the town has quite a strange antmosphere it also had an interesting Overlander 'vibe', as there were a lot of travellers hanging out in the clinic to sit out the snowstorm. If you need anything, Juan Carlos is definitely the go to man in this town!

Juan Carlos, the nurse of health center, provides a free camping in a parking lot. you can use the bathroom at a house in front of the place. Very simple, but clean and with hot shower. There is a place where you can cook and where you can charge your cellphone. He asks for tips.
