 didn't feel welcome in this place. I was sent there by the hostel next door because they were full. I stayed in a single room with shared bathroom, problem is to go to the bathroom you had to pass through the dining room used for the breakfast, which very often was used by the owner's family, having dinner or watching...

Positives. Chris, the young host was very nice, helped us out with providing breakfast to go (para llevar) when we were out early to seen penguins. Location was fine, not right in the centre but an easy enough walk. Room (room 1) was comfortable and warm. Slept great, except for some noise issues the last night. Breakfast was good by... More

It seems like Hostel Ainil has some good rooms and some pretty bad ones. My husband and I got a tiny room in the building that's on the left when you enter the property. The bed was fairly uncomfortable. The main problem is that when there's wind (which was all night during our stay) some power lines slap against a... More

The place was busy, so the owner apologetically rented me a "small room." No joke! Barely any room to turn around, but private bath, clean, warm etc. Because this teeny room was part of a larger "suite", it was fine, especially for the price. I had access to a large living room, and the very serviceable kitchenette. Another plus, really... More

It's a good hostel. Staff is super friendly and helpful. Their breakfast is great and very generous. It's in walking distance from downtown Punta Arenas, in a very quiet street. Wifi works fine. Rooms are a little run down and bathrooms don't look good but work. For the price I paid it was excellent.

If you plan to do any kind of activity before 8:00 AM, you better forget about the breakfast "included" in the price. They just don't serve it if you happen to leave at 7:45. Our room had the worse bathroom I've ever seen so far, thin and dirty walls, better not to mention the conditions of the "shower". If by... More

29000 pesos for à double bed with Tv and wifi. The room was newly repainted. The bathroom is brand new and clean (rare in Chile). The breakfast is rich and served in à friendly place. You feel like home! The staff is friendly and called the boat to Porvenir for us to know about the schedule. 3-4 blocks from city... More

Magaly, with the help of her daughter, run a great hostal. We arrived close to midnight on a Sunday and they were still available to help us out. We did make sure they knew we were arriving late, but it was nice to be met with nice people. Magaly doesn't speak English, though her daughter has a good grasp of... More

Good value for lodging in Punta Arenas. Location is a few blocks from downtown (but don't trust google maps' interpretation of the address), basically a 5-10 minute walk. Rooms were small but felt cozy and all had good heaters in them. The host was very helpful in planning our visit ahead of time, and had good recommendations for restaurants and... More
