Bon endroit pour passer une nuit, bruit des camions mais abrité du vent ( 90 km les rafales ce jour). Les douches sont super propres et gratuites avec eaux bien chaude et super débit. Local attenant avec quincho et parilla👍😀

Uma noite tranquila, mas com muitos caminhões.
Horários confusos para uma ducha quente, fui tentar tomar banho meia noite e estava fechado, depois fui as 8h e disseram que abre as 9h.
Mas, é um local que vai encontrar muitos MH a espera do dia para travessia da fronteira e seguir com destino ao Ushuai.

Ok to sleep one night with no wind but truck noise ;) Really nice and hot shower for free. But you have to ask a ticket at the gas station when you fill up your tank.
It gets really crowded so it’s better to arrive not that late. We arrived at 8pm and found a last small spot for us

Dormimos atrás do posto, tem um pouco de barulho pelo movimento dos caminhões, mas foi tranquilo.
Posto grande, com lanchonete e farmacia.

We got gas and they gave us a free shower. The bathrooms are great.
We slept behind the station, there is a little noise due to the movement of trucks, but it was peaceful.
Large station, with snack bar and pharmacy.
Attendants were friendly to us.

Passamos uma noite bem barulhenta neste posto. Som alto e muito movimento de veículos e pessoas. Abastecemos e ganhamos um banho quente, mas dizem que o banho é somente para caminhoneiros, fica inclusive numa área exclusiva com amenidades para eles. Lanchonete com opções razoáveis, com farmácia ao lado. Banheiros mais ou menos limpos. Também havia água quente disponível.

good place to stay. a lot ofovelanders and truckers. showers are super hotin the morning. to getto theshwers just ask the guys who work at the station they need to sign a receipt.

Report Check-In

this is a truckers fuel station and they line up between this pin, where the showers are, and the regular gas station and idle all night while they wait their turn to fill up. noise wasn't as bad as I expected. out of the wind was more important. when we were there the water line was damaged and so no running water or showers to this side building. the amenities inside the gas station itself were unaffected.

Report Check-In

stayed here a total of 4 nights. 2 before crossing to Isla del Fuego because we needed to go ta an vet and senasa because of out dog, and 2 after Isla del Fuego because of a problem in our car. it's a great ypf. the convenience is 24h. it's better to sleep behind the gas stations among the trucks because of the noise of the avenue. there is also music in front of the gas station. we use the camping nearby to shower for 400 pesos per person.

Report Check-In

A bit noisy, bring ear plugs. There is some wind protection depending on where you park. You can get showers in the building behind the YPF, but you need your gas receipt and a signature on the back from the guy who pumped your gas. It gets extremely full and there isn’t a lot of available space for campers so park early.

Report Check-In

In between big trucks, wind protection.
Friendly staff.
Also potable water intake with hose.
And we got 3 coffee with media luna for free with one full tank.
And wifi.

Report Check-In

Slept behind the gas station near the building with bathrooms, showers, wifi, and parillas. The man at the desk asked if we wanted showers when we arrived at night and we said yes in the morning. Unfortunately they were closed in the morning, but they looked nice! Bathrooms in the gas station were very clean. Loud night with truckers parked so close that their door hit us everytime they got in and out. Not the best sleep but safe and wind sheltered!

Nice place. Behind the station (next to all the trucks) is a place always occupied by campers - next to the fence. Good wind protection in this world capital of wind. Not sure about showers etc.

Ótimo local para parar e abastecer. para quem quer passar a noite tem toda estrutura necessária, com restaurante, banheiros duchas quentes ( com abastecimento). Excelente atendimento.

Spent two nights behind the station, while the wind was blowing crazy. It's very well protected from the wind and not too loud at night.
In front, there is a small water tap that you can use, if you ask.

We stayed 3 nights living in this gas station hahaha. It has a bathroom, showers, barbecues, they are behind the gas station and were available. It has Wi-Fi, but it's a bit unstable.

Ficamos 3 noites morando nesse posto hahaha. Possui banheiro, duchas, churrasqueiras, ficam atrás do posto e estavam disponíveis. Possui Wi-Fi, mas é um pouco instável.

A princípio as duchas são exclusivas para os caminhoneiros, mas falando com o encarregado ele autorizou usarmos as duchas quentes e o banho é muito bom. Eles tem uma cozinha grande, refeitório, que pode ser utilizada pelos caminhoneiros. Não utilizamos esse espaço, mas é limpo e tem até espaço pra paella.
Passamos a noite e o barulho dos caminhões é constante, mas nada que incomode pra dormir. Um ótimo lugar pra descansar da viagem e conta com uma excelente loja de conveniências com muitas opções e bom atendimento.

Paramos pra comer e usar o wi-fi. Loja de conveniências com ótimas opções de lanche e almoço. Banheiros limpos e bom sinal de wi-fi. Fornecem água quente grátis e achamos um bom lugar pra passar a noite, com duchas quentes também. O atendimento é excelente.

É um posto para quem está de passagem. Possui toda a qualidade da rede Full, o que quer dizer hma ótima internet é ótimas instalações. Mas é extremamente barulhento, e por isso ficamos apenas uma noite.

We spent one night here. 24-hour post and store with clean bathrooms and very fast wi-fi (including pick up in the parking lot). In addition to the convenience store, there is a store with car items, a souvenir shop, a pharmacy and a grill in front. We don't need to use the shower. Truck stop station, which makes it very noisy, even at dawn. Friendly staff.

Passamos uma noite aqui. Posto e loja 24 horas com banheiros limpos e wi-fi bem rápido (inclusive pega no estacionamento). Além da loja de conveniência, existe loja com artigos para carro, uma loja de lembranças, farmácia e na frente uma parrilla. Não precisamos usar a ducha. Posto parada de caminhões, o que faz ter muito barulho, inclusive de madrugada. Funcionários simpáticos.

Safe place to stay, good wifi, clean bathrooms but shower only for truck drivers. Many travelers bathe here talking to the manager, we fuelled but he didn't authorize it. Too much noise at night.

We asked the staff if we can stay overnight and they we really friendly and said "yes sure". After a few minutes it was clear that it is quiet common. 4 other motor homes stayed here with us and the trucks. Nice place, but very noisy as trucks are leaving during the night.

We parked behind the gas station with the Trucks.
It was a quiet night, totally protected from the wind.
The showers are only for the truck drivers, but after fuel our tank with gas (70L diesel) they allowed us using the showers.
The Wi-Fi is really good and fast, and the bathroons were always clean.

Uno-home. Mais um pernoite. Posto ponto de descanso dos caminhões e motorhomes, por isso bem movimentado. No outro lado da rua do posto, tem um local (La Picada) ótimo aberto até tarde da noite (entramos depois das 00:00) para comer uma refeição honesta, pizza, lanche ou petiscar (todos bons) com chopp, cerveja ou vinho. Local também movimentado pelo pessoal que pernoita no posto.

Uno-home. Ruta 3, Rio Gallegos. Atrás do YPF, uma área com caminhões estacionados tem uma casinha com banheiros e chuveiros bons, quentes e limpos, Wi-Fi com senha informada na área de espera com sofás. Se abastecer completo no YPF e mostrar o comprovante, ganha o banho. Pernoite possível em uma das vagas nas laterais do posto, em frente a farmácia ou no outro lado. Posto bastante movimentado.

Abastecemos com gasolina, não nos deixaram tomar banho, somente para caminhoneiros.

Report Check-In

Definitivamente o melhor YPF de todos. Completamos o tanque e deu mais de AR$1300,00. Ganhamos um café e os banhos na faixa. Peça o ticket e fale do banho também que eles dão um outro ticket que é maior e tem um código. Os banheiros com duchas pecam só na privacidade, então enquanto toma banho no feminino peça pra alguém ficar de olho na porta para evitar constrangimentos, mas a pressão e temperatura da água são ótimos. Parando na frente da conveniência Full o wi-fi funciona dentro carro.
.
Best YPF so far! We filled our gas tank AR$1.300,00 and won a coffe and free showers, but you have to ask for an especific and larger ticket for the showers. The showers could have more privacy, ( the womens showers are visible once you open the door, so just ask someone stay outside to keep an eye on the door as you shower to avoid embarassment ). Very good pressure and temperature! If you park in front of Full store the free wi-fi works inside the car.

The bathrooms with showers are behind the station, in a place where there is a kitchen with barbecue and TV room included. We refuelled and the frentist told us that with the petrol ticket we could take the baths (2). Arriving at the place, we saw exclusive plates for truck drivers and the person in charge told us that we couldn't take a shower because the place is (really) exclusive for truck drivers. After talking, he told us that with the authorization of the person in charge of the station we could take a bath. We went back to the station and looked for the person in charge who signed behind the ticket so we could take our baths and even use the space if we wanted. It is a very clean place and it looks very new, excellent showers, clean and spacious bathrooms. We do not use the kitchen. Despite the little "mess" it was the best bath of the trip!
Nomadic routine

Os banheiros com os chuveiros ficam atrás do posto, num local onde há cozinha com churrasqueira e sala de tv inclusive. Abastecemos e o frentista nos disse que com o ticket da gasolina poderíamos tomar os banhos (2). Chegando no local, vimos placas de exclusividade para caminhoneiros e o responsável nos disse que não poderíamos tomar banho pois o local é (realmente) exclusivo para caminhoneiros. Após conversarmos, ele nos disse que com a autorização do responsável do posto poderíamos nos banhar. Voltamos ao posto e procuramos o responsável que assinou atrás do ticket e assim pudemos tomar nossos banhos e inclusive usar do espaço caso quiséssemos. Local muito limpo e parece ser bem novo, chuveiros excelentes, banheiros limpos e espaçosos. Não utilizamos da cozinha. Apesar da pequena “confusão” foi o melhor banho da viagem!

Great YPF Gas Station. We were told that it’s ok to camp here, at least if you leave before 8. I think if you pitch you tent behind the trees at the back it’s no problem to stay longer (very protected and quite hidden there as well). In the back they have a great common area with bbq spots were invited to use with the truck drivers there.

Truckers parking behind YPF fuel station. Toilets, showers and kitchen as well as some shops and a restaurant available. Staying is free, showers are ARS15. Maintenance and cleanliness of ablutions no less than the average Argentinan campground. Rather noisy. Protection from wind by screens, trucks and buildings. Wifi available.

Simple but quiet during the night and more than OK after 1000km on ruta 3! Hot showers from 8 am - 11 pm at the truck stop just behind the YPF (15 ARP, nice and hot showers). Woman managing the truck stop might just start her working day at 8.30 am though, so don't plan an early departure when you're in need of a hot shower!! ;)

Well we finally did it. To compliment our long haul driving days down RN3 we stayed with the truckers behind a gas station. Free bathroom and showers (+wifi in the sitting area), but Alabama cassette tapes, belt buckles, and trucker hats should be self furnished. This YPF also had the 5W-30 synthetic engine oil we had been seeking.
