“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

If you're in Puerto Natales, you need to stay in this hostel. During two months in South America, I think it's the best place I stayed. The owner, Omar, is a great guy - an experienced climber and trekker who seems to know every trail in Patagonia - whatever you're planning, he can advise you. Very laid back guy. The hostel has a lovely kitchen (open to guests) - kept nice and cosy by a vast old-fashioned gas cooker - and two lounges which are great to chill in. You also get a really decent breakfast (no attempt here to pass off a couple of bits of stale bread as 'breakfast'!). Seems to attract a very friendly bunch of guests, too. One twin room and three dorms, all of which are warm and clean. For the price, it's a bargain - highly recommended.

We stayed here for a few nights before and after going to Torres Del Paine. The owner Omar is a great guy with a lot of hiking experience. He can help you with everything you need. In the short time we stayed there, he built a personal bond with us, got to know us a bit, showed us some things that we might like, ...
The kitchen is big and clean. It has all the pots, pans and utensils you need, which is not a given in South America. The rooms are very good, the common areas are big. All in all a great experience, and maybe the best hostel we stayed in in, in whole South America.

This hostel is the best ive stayed in South America and the only country i havent been yet is brazil). Its amazingly clean considering its been open for 7 yrs, the breakfast is really good and you get peanut butter and nutella as well as jam. They have a cave room which is smaller than the normal rooms for 7,000 chp which is good value for money. The owner is really great and very helpful would definately recommend staying in this hostel.
