Patti looked after us very well during our stay in Puerto Williams offering advice and storing our excess luggage during our Los Dientes hike. She cooked us dinner on a couple of nights, breakfast was bread, jam & cheese.
Very friendly host (Patricia) and staff, making you feeling as being part of the family. Clean rooms, kitchen can be used for private cooking and socialising with other guests. Amazing local experience, one of the best experiences on our Chile trip!
I called Patty, the host, from Punta Arenas and while looking for somebody to make the further conversation for me, I apologized for my very limited Spanish - which was the first positive moment; patient and friendly she replid: " go ahead, I do understand you!" We arrived on the ferry from PA early in the morning and were served coffee and bread. By noon the rrom was made - a simple dormitory with 5 beds, a bit crammed, of course, but clean and a wonderful hot shower in the shared bathroom. It is a hostel with 3 rooms (2 double, 1 dorm). Anyhow, the best is, when Patty, who cooks daily, serves centolla (king crab) and nice salads, her homemade aji and mayonnaise for dinner (plus a main course plus dessert!). Vegetarian dishes nicely done on request. You are just part of the family and according to other guests it is more or less the best food you can get in town. BYO wine or beer can be bought at the supermarket next door. Quite often, people from the yacht club drop in to eat with the little "community".…
**I stayed at this place in January 2014** Accomodation in Puerto Williams is extremely limited in terms of variety and luxury. Hostel Pusaki is the best place to stay. Although small, it is warm and clean and the host, Patti, is a wonderful cook and conversationalist. Socialising with the other guests was fun - we were a small group of people from across the world, at the end of the world together. Evening dinners were invariably accompanied by wine and good discussions. Patti was always the life and soul of the place. A very memorable experience.
We were so lucky to stumble into Patricia's home. We arrived via boat from Punta Arenas very early in the morning. Patricia opened up her home to us, helped answer all our questions about our trek, gave us a map and offered us gas for cooking. She was extremely helpful with everything we needed. The rooms are cozy, there were four of us in one small room. But we had plenty of blankets, the room was clean, and we got hot showers after a cold rainy day. Her food is amazing! She serves a delicious dinner that changes a little from night to night. I would highly recommend staying here if you want a local experience.
