Service is of very low quality. Money is more important than quality of service. The reception desk is not helpful and having no experience. The refugio is very expensive for what you really get. No hangers in the room, no possibility to dry wet clothes or boots. There are no real lounges where you may may have a rest, there... More

The location of this refugio and camping is fantastic! It offers basic accommodation in bunk beds. We camped there for 2 nights at the start of the W. As you get there, you have to look for your site anywhere you like. Everyone was accepted and the camp area was overcrowded. There is no covered cooking area. There are some... More

S50°58.389' W72°52.514' the newly added ablution block refugio Torre Norte offers nice warm showers after a day trip hiking Torres del Paine. Do not confuse refugio Torres Central with Torres Norte. The dorm bed in the unisex room slept well in December 2014. Do not forget earplugs for noisy sleepers and leave your smelly shoes outside in the hallway. This... More

I spent two nights at this refugio while doing the W trekk and found it to be of a decent standard. Rooms were clean, food was not too bad, probably overall too expensive. The highlight is the coffee in the bar, the best you will get in the area. Try the espressos and capuccinos prepared with much care by the... More

You wouldn't choose to stay here and especially not at $126 per night full board. Six to a room ( and some were mixed makes that more expensive than the top London hotels, and you had to rent a towel for $2 a night. The beds were comfortable and a nice duvet on the bed. The communal showers were clean.... More

We stayed in Torres Norte for 2 days as we were completing the 'W' track. There's nothing else around to do so we hung out at the bar for coffee and tea quite a bit. Considering that food, milk and coffee were scarce over there, coffee served at the bar was the best throughout the whole trip in TDP. We... More

There is no (or very little) hot water. No electricity points except of the reception place. The rooms are cold with no heating. At night time the wind blowing in all over. The prices are HIGHLY expensive and doesn't reflects the quality what so ever. The service are very unwelcoming. At the time we arrived they demand an extra 15... More
