In my 6 month trip to South America this was one of my favourite hostels. We only stayed two nights due to budget restraints and had to move to another hostel. The two nights I stayed were quiet, breakfast was good and the staff friendly and helpful. It was decorated for Christmas when we were there and felt like home.... More

This hostel was just ok. I would recommend you stay somewhere closer to town - there are lots of options. Positive points are: rooms were clean and beds comfortable. Nice, friendly staff. Downsides: although clean, bathroom smelled like stale water; the curtains were bamboo blinds so at night you had to keep the light off if you didnt want people... More

We booked in to stay here for one night and ended up staying four - Las Carretas is an absolutely fantastic place! The place seems newly renovated, and all the rooms are decorated immaculately to an incredibly high standard - more like a boutique hotel than a hostel. The breakfast was really good - great coffee, and you could pick... More

We booked a double room, shared bathroom for 10000pesos / person. Pros - The place is very clean, smells great. The owners who work there are nice. The owners bake their own cake for your breakfast the next day. The owners will ask to see when you want your brekky and the coffee they serve is fabulous. The double room... More

Las Carretas is the best hostel we stayed at in all of Patagonia. The rooms are beautiful, clean, and incredibly comfortable. The atmosphere is warm and friendly and the breakfasts are very tasty. Laundry service on site, kitchen, and television in each room for those who need to veg out after trekking. There is even a bar and lounge on... More

We stayed here for five nights in January. It is a simple B&B but excellent value for money. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good. I am not giving it a five star because it was quite difficult to sleep at times. I think we were unlucky to have a group of very noisy Austrians staying... More

Beautifully decorated rooms, very clean and cozy. We had a twin room with bathroom and it was a perfect change after spending some days in different refugios in Torres del Paine. Nice breakfast! A great place to stay! Unfortunately the guy who was there during our stay did only speak Spanish. Location: not directly in the center but within easy... More

We spent one night in Hostal Las Carretas after returning from Torres del Paine. The room with twin beds was nice, and it was very quiet. The owners were friendly but I don't think they spoke much English, so we had to try to get along in Spanish. The breakfast was nothing special, quite the basic fare that you normally... More
