“Very good hostal with hotel amenities”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2010

Was really surprised by the price quality with this hostel which felt more like a hotel. The room was comfortable with private bath and cable TV which at $16.000 pesos very reasonably priced. They changed the sheets and towels every day which in my opinion is wasteful so I suggested they give that as an option for guests. The shower was nice and hot and they provided small bars of soap. The breakfast was nothing special but sufficient with warm breads, jam, cereal, yogurt coffee or tea. This is definitely not a back packers hostel; its better suited for 30+ crowd or anyone looking for a quiet place to sleep.

Nice small hotel that is easy to find and close to everything. Helpful staff. Not much parking. Close to the lake and main square. Good value for the price. Good restaurant suggestions. Try the fish place - Restaurant Manuel Marin - Ultima Esperanza at Eberhard 354. Very good.

The owner of this hotel has to be one of the most unbelievably rude and incompetent managers i have ever come across. He went out of his way to harass and annoy us jsut after a 5 day trek around the Torres del Paine - we were understandably tired. He was so rude we decided to simply leave and leave him to it. I would advice going around the corner to other similar hotels which you will find considerably cheaper.
