Nice mid-range lodging is hard to find on the Carretera Austral, so El Puesto is a find. Our room and bathroom were very pretty and clean and the sitting area downstairs was very comfortable. Breakfast was much better than the usual Chilean breakfast. We didn't know that they served dinner - in fact the desk clerk referred us to another... More

My wife and I stayed in this hostel for two nights in January 2015. We arrived in fraught state as we had suffered a double blow-out on our hire car about 18km from town. The local Tyre Man had come out and rescued us but we still had to somehow get two new tyres for the jeep and the nearest... More

My immediate family and that of my brother and sister spent 6 days at El Puesto. What a fabulous experience for all 20 of us! The lodge is much more than that... Super comfortable and spacious rooms, with beautiful rustic and native details. The share spaces are cozy, warmed by a big wooden stove. I love the detail of everyone... More

I wouldn't call this place a hostel, it is so much more (unless that is they run out of room and put you in their overflow property). The main hotel is beautifully done with very comfortable rooms and an ambiance that is inviting and exactly what you're looking for when you are traveling around Aysén. We have memories from this...

It feels very homy there if you get in and change into woolen socks, a big oven in kitchen/living room gives warmth and the people are so nice, helpful and you feel great. We can also recommend to have dinner there, we have had a very delicious menu: spinach soup, salmon, tiramisu. They care a lot about their environment, separate... More

He was extremely helpful, responsive and an overall great person and guide. in our short three day trip we did: - Hike and camp on glacier (food & Mate included - Francisco... More

We were with my friend about to stay less than one day in Puerto Rio Tranquilo, but the activities of El Puesto convinced us to stay 3 days! We didn't stay at the very pretty hotel, but we share the amazing activities there! Indeed, Rio Tranquilo is famous for the marble caves, but the experience of going into the caves... More

A well designed, thought out hostel. Relaxed, laid back atmosphere with friendly staff! Beds you just don't want to get out of in the morning! Home made breads, jams and yogurts! Mate and coffee! What more can I say! Love the place can't wait to go back!

Puerto Tranquilo is a small town but we had to ask for directions. Hidden away from the main road is a wooden hostal with spacious rooms. Staff spoke little English. In our room we missed a cupboard for our clothes. Decoration is elementary but it fits in this "natural" hostal. It is an nice place to stay but the dinner... More

This is a charming little hotel, probably the prettiest and most comfortable in Puerto Rio Tranquilo. Made of wood in a charming style, the place is well isolated and quiet, with warm water in the rooms (not all of them, apparently, so you'd better check this out when you contact them). The staff is friendly and helpful, and they have... More
