The Alta City Pension is centrally located, tucked down a short narrow lane way off the main street. A big advantage to it's position is that it is sheltered from the road noise and loud late night music from the bars across the road. Your sleep is sure to be peaceful. When we walked in off the street, a ground... More

I have stayed here on 2 separate occasions now and its a good deal. Nothing fancy, just a clean room with hot water, air con and right in the middle of Puerto almost on the crossroads opposite Tikki Bar. 5 minutes to the airport, 10 mins to the bus terminal and you can walk to all the usual city food...

The room is clean and the staff are accommodating :) We tried to borrow two cups with hot water and they gave it to us faster than expected :) Though the room is comfortable, expect to hear voices from outside that it will surely wake you up from sleep. Also, they do not have a generator, I woke up around... More

We were 6 persons sharing a room for 3 persons, so they ended up putting 2 extra beds that actually managed the three of us on the floor. They... More

This place is just off the main street, right in the middle of town. We were lucky enough to get one of their economy rooms which already were a tiny bit over our generally tight budget. But it was well worth the price. Rooms were spacious and clean with comfy beds, aircon and tv. Bathroom is shared for economy rooms... More

Bernadette, the front desk employee was very friendly and helpful. Because our room was not yet ready when we arrived, she took care of our luggage and had them delivered to our room. The staff quickly provided us a candle when we experienced a short, unannounced brown-out during the night. She stored our luggage the next morning when we joined... More
