This mountain lodge is fine and clean enough for 1-2 night stay. The problem is it's quite expensive for a bed in 6 person shared room (they even charge for towels). It really is a no frills lodge but the location is great to climb the towers in a day hike; so I guess that's the reason they charge a... More

We stayed here for two nights at the start of the W trek - the two main options if you are starting at the towers end and are not camping are this refugio, or the considerably more expensive Hosteria Torres down the road. Location wise there isnt much to pick between them - staying at the Refugio basically just adds... More

Stayed at Torres Central and El Chileno in January 2013. OK but highly priced for what you get, at least at Central which has good communications with Puerto Natales. What really upset us was that we had to pay tax because we couldn´t show the immigration slips (had left them at the hotel in Natales). Foreigners are not supposed to... More

This a good option for lodging in Torres del Paine and also affordable. We had lodging including breakfast, lunch box and diner. Food was okay especially considering it is basicly just a hostel. Service can be better because there is too few staff. Rooms with good beds and lockers for your luggage (don't forget to bring your own padlock). Good... More

We booked a program with "Fantastico Sur" to visit Torres del Paine... bad choice!! just when we got to Puerto Natales to start our trekking we were told that our program got moved back one day just because they didn't book us in for the transfer to Torres del Paine!!

Dear Pancho O, Thank you for your opinion, it will be very helpful to improve our services. We have talked to our sales team, and as we noticed, they offered you an option without changing your flight tickets. In fact the mistake happened because the Bus Company didn´t start their regular frequency to Torres del Paine when they were supposed... More

The refugio is placed at the begining of the day hike to the Torres del Paine hike. The refugio is clean and the beds have nice down comforters. There are only dorm rooms available with 8 beds. The meals are ok. Nothing special. There is not much to buy there if you forgot some supplies. Make sure you bring everything... More

To be honest, this is the worst reservation process I have experienced fo my whole trip in Patagonia. All my other contacts were friendly and explicit. Here, I merely had a reply without a word but attached documentation. When asking for details, got told that “eveything was in the documentation”. And I wrote in Spanish, so they cannot say they...

The Refugio is in a spectacular location, with a view to the Torres. There are few other choices for non-camping accommodation in the park, which is probably why they can get away with charging hotel prices for bunk beds. If you want bed linen, they charge for that. A towel? Additional charge. Bag storage while you do a hike? Yep,... More

Prior to our trip, we had been booked in a different area of Torres del Paine. With the recent fire, our booking company scrambled to find us accommodations so we could experience some hiking of the W and booked us at the Refugio. At first we thought "no way" can we do this but then with a change of attitude... More

Before going to Torres Del Paine I was worried to be in a poor refugio so I stayed in the Hotel Las Torres (very expensive). But just some steps away there was this nice refugio, clean and new. For young trekkers, I think it is the best cost benefit in the area. I'd stay here for the next vacation. You... More
