Our stay in this hostel was good, but with small problems. The room was good and the beds really confortable (which is great after doing the W-circuit) and the hostel offers camping gear and information about Torres del Paine. However, we found a little annoying that from time to time there was no one in the reception and we also... More

I stayed here a night after completing the W trek at Torres del Paine National Park. The bed was decent and it had a lot of blankets which I liked. The hostel is 3 floors and probably has about 18-20 beds total in different rooms (I was is a 4 bed room). My room was pretty small and basically fit... More

I stayed here with little knowledge of how things worked in Patagonia or what to do. The owner of the hostel was exceptionally helpful- he booked a great horseback riding trip for us and explained every detail of what we should do. He even offered to lend us camping gear. Great place to stay on your way to Torres del... More

I stayed here 4 nights waiting for a friend and got eaten by bed bugs the first night. The breakfast was good but using the kitchen wasn't easy as the family who live there take it over sometimes so I had to wait for the sink while they washed up. Staff didn't speak much English or try to understand that... More

Friendly but disfunctional. Stuff is dirty and broken. Hot showers but not working properly. Good breakfast but out of a dirty kitchen. Smelly from dog urine. Lacking in communal facilities. Overal it represents poor value for money. Other reviews may be misleading. This one is on the slide.

W-Circuit Hostel in Puerto Natales is a very nice place to stay. Located in the city center, it is owned by a friendly family who is really helpful and flexible. The double room is beautiful. The dorms are ok too. More bathrooms would make things easier. Breakfast is excellent and varied.

The hostel is one block away from the main square of Puerto Natales and within 5 minutes walking distance to mini markets, a supermarket, pharmacies, various stores, the handicraft mall, and so on. The owner and his family are extremely welcoming and very friendly people. The house is clean and the breakfast is a delight. The hostel offers guided tours... More
