My stay at Hostal Calafate was terrific! The hostal is centrally located in Punta Arenas- a few blocks to the main square, the downtown core, great restaurants (check out La Marmalita located one block away) and tour outfits. The decor in the lobby is eclectic and open (they have a great collection of old radios). My room was beautiful with... More

Only problem was cold temperature in the evening, but it was out... More

Rooms are big and clean. The staff were friendly and fairly helpful and the location is central. There is no lounge/bar area for backpackers to hang out or kitchen facillities...this is a hotel. The guide books boasted of a great internet cafe on site which was no where to be found. We asked about it and were told, rather rudely... More

We stayed here for several nights while waiting to fly to Antarctica with Dap. The hostal was like a house that had been remodeled into a hotel. We had a downstairs room and the walls were very thin, so we constantly heard people in the lobby and checking in and out at the front desk. I would think that the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Calafate® Hostal is a contribution to the city since we have rescued a beautiful chalet with very big architectural value, built by European immigrants and Chilean people in 1920. We have repaired this place to give the passenger all the comfort and services which belong to a hostal with the concept of “Boutique Hostal” having ten very confortable rooms. Through our personalized service we offer to our guests hospitality, kindness and warmth.Calafate® Hostal is located in the center of the city, three blocks away from Muñoz Gamero Square, 400m. from the Strait of Magellan from where you can observe Tierra del Fuego island. ... more   less

“Request a room on the second floor. My first floor room was great, but the windows face the back yard- so not as much privacy- and you can hear the footsteps of people on the second floor.”

“Try to stay upstairs rather than downstairs to avoid noise and light from the lobby.”
