“Not bad for a room this cheap”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2013 via mobile

We only booked seeing the price and overall, not really bad considering how cheap it is. OK, the building does look like it's made of carboard, water pressure far from strong, the kitchen not amazing, the back garden looks like a dumpyard(but no need to go there), and noise is heard very easily from room to room. But location is fine, close to Unimarc and the bus station, wifi is very strong and fast from room. Maybe expecting good service or great cleanliness is too much. But for just a short stop when you arrive late, not bad(but there are better options).

Rough around the edges, but I really enjoyed my stay here - moreso than the modern hostels i've stayed in. The manager, Claudio, is very helpful and friendly, there is plentiful hot water in the showers, it is very clean, there is a strong reliable Internet connection, it is very safe ( the manager lives there) the beds are comfortable, the the place has a great overall character. The price is very reasonable, lower than most places in town, but more enjoyable. You can store gear there for free without worrying about its security while you are trekking in Torres del Paine, they can make travel arrangements for you, and rent you gear if you need it. This place was full every night, so book in advance.

Stayed January 2013, travelled solo

We stayed at the 4-bed room which was nice, very clean and comfortable. The atmosphere was home-like and the staff was super helpful and kind. It has an equipped kitchen, wi-fi and two common showers. Recommended!

This hostel does what it's price tag suggests, it's a bit rough around the edges and pretty cold but there is a decent place to cook, the showers are hot, theres wifi and the host is really helpful and knowledgeable (particularly with suggesting about Torres del Paine). You can even rent hiking equipment there. Don't expect the ritz but for the money, it's ok :)
