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. As soon as we walked out of the door, the sleeping bag cover broke.
After the trek we were exhausted and when we arrived at the hostel, the last thing we wanted to hear was critizims by the guy at the reception. He immediately started commenting on us drinking coke and smelling of food. Also, we were accused of breaking the cooking stove, which was in the same conditiona as received. Furthermore, the bus tickets that they were supposed to reserve, weren't reserved. They had left it to the last minute so there were no seats left. We ended up taking random buses through Rio Turbio and delaying our trip significantly. Even calling a taxi was difficult for these guys, so we just got one off the street. Accomodations were ok and breakfast was decent, but stay elsewhere if you can.More
