Hostel is clean with warm water. Owner is hard to understand. Protective of his books. Maybe he had bad experience in the past, but any time I borrowed a book, he would be more worried about that coming back to him, than the comfort of our stay. The man who cooks breakfast is very good. Nice man who wants people...

I stayed here four nights and can't say I saw any of the negative points from below. It was definitely one of the best hostels I've stayed in with respect to cleanliness (and the shower upstairs is amazing) and coziness. It's not a party hostel though! If you're out trekking in the day it's nice to come back to in...

This was my very worst experience of a hostel. I had asked Omar (the owner) to book my bus ticket out of Puerto Natales after finishing the W Trek. He gave me the wrong ticket so on arrival at the bus station I found someone else in my seat. I was forced to buy a second ticket at great expense....

This was the WORST hostel experiences I've had. Omar, the owner of the hostel was rude, hostile and e-mailed us a threatening message after a misunderstanding over the hostel bill. I recommend that this hostel be AVOIDED if you want to enjoy your trip to Torres del Paine. Upon arriving the night before our trek to Torres del Paine we...

We arrived at the hostal before doing the torres del paine trek to rent some equipment. We got what we needed but the guys did not try to hurry up at all when we clearly said that we had a bus to catch. We also arranged for them to reserve bus tickets for us for el calafate five days later....

The facilities are okay. Rooms are clean as are the bathrooms. The guy who works at the reception is just plain rude when asked simple questions. When he found out that we've sorted out our bus tickets etc and brought our own gear for trekking and it was clear he wasn't going to make any more money from us, he...

I stayed here for 4 nights and was amazed at how far these guys went to help me! They are such good guys with the best intentions. The breakfast was also superb. Nutella, eggs and peaches were even included. The rooms are spacious and the kitchen is fully equipped. They have everything you need here. Yes there are a lot...

So I arrive and all is hunky dory. Guy gave me good info and showed me around. I was unfortunate to have booked the male dorm which was opposite the kitchen and next to the lounge. Initially the smoke alarm was needing new batteries and no-one was doing anything about it so I told them about the constant beeping which...

It was a great hostel. I had a bed in a 6 bed girls dorm, which I shared with one other girl. Omar was very welcoming and and informative. He helped me with booking tours and bus tickets. He even recommended that I join a group of guys staying there, who were independently trekking, but I was too lazy to...

I stayed here for a night before going on the W trail and again for a night after I came back. Omar was great. I was able to rent everything I needed for the trek from him, and also left most of the stuff in my backpack in the lockers for the few days that I was gone. The floors...
