The hostel is simple, just a typical old, but comfortable and clean house in Punta Arenas. The accommodations are nice and I felt like being on my own house while stayed here. Alejandro, the host of the hostel, was very attentive and he cared about my conformability. His suggestions about what to do in the city, where to go and... More

We really enjoyed our one night stay here in late January 2014. Alejandro does have an understated personality and quiet approach, but he couldn't have done more to help us sort out a bus journey to Ushuaia. Rooms are cozy and comfortable enough and the hostel is in a good central location. HIghly recommended!

Clean comfortable rooms and shared bathrooms. The owner is an aloof character. I noticed him being helpful to some guests and quite rude and unhelpful to others including me, which seems to match the differing reviews here, some saying he is helpful others saying he is rude. In contrast the lady who worked there was extremely friendly. The owner does... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. We have found it very clean & comfortable if a little outdated in the decor. Breakfasts are fab - toast & eggs with tea or coffee. Only downside has been the unfriendly/unhelpful staff. The hostel advertises help with arranging buses etc but on questioning no assistance was offered & we had to explore everything... More

My wife and I stayed at La Estancia for 4 nights in December 2013 and we had a great experience. The accomodations are basic but clean and cozy. The place is within easy walking distance to the rest of the town. Alejandro has an understated personality that could be described as stand-offish, but we found him to be helpful and... More

I stayed at La Estancia with my wife for two nights in December 2013 (we're both in our late 20s). The hotel is centrally located, and the rooms (we had a room with private bathroom) are simple (a bit old) but spacious. Everything looked reasonably clean. All together, it's nothing special but reasonable considering the price. One of the reasons... More

I was planning a large trek in a very short time frame and I had basically no idea how it was going to work when I arrived in punta arena. Alejandro was exceptionally helpful and accommodating despite the fact I stayed for only one night. My room was big, warm and comfortable. I had a great trek and went back... More

Perfect location right next to Bus Pacheco terminal. Very clean rooms with heater. Good restaurants nearby. Free breakfast. Fast wifi and computer. Wonderful owner Alex who speaks English and is very helpful. He booked tours and bought bus tickets to Puerto Natales for us in advance and helped solved out our travel issues. Highly recommended!!! Thank you Alex!

I loved this place! Alejandro and his family supported me in many ways during my stay. He is one of those persons who really take care of you. Showing flexibility and interest in my planning, he did a lot to make my time in Chile wonderful. The breakfast is great, even scrambled eggs are served. Everything is clean and cosy.

very friendly staff helped organizing tours and prepared a great breakfast every morning. Rooms are spacious and the common area is very cozy and perfect for meeting other guests! Bathrooms seemed to be new and everything was very clean all the time!
