My stay at Hostal Calafate was terrific! The hostal is centrally located in Punta Arenas- a few blocks to the main square, the downtown core, great restaurants (check out La Marmalita located one block away) and tour outfits.

We had a downstairs room and the walls were very thin, so we constantly heard people in the lobby and checking in and out at the front desk. I would think that the... More

Hostal Calafate is just half a block from the Plaza de Armas and is right across from the regional museum. It is a modest place but efficient and offers ameneties such as laundry, Internet Cafe open from 8 am through midnight, fax services, tour reservations for Torres del Paine, Perito Moreno, etc. My room was small but clean with cable...
