“Loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

We stayed at the hostel only 2 nights, but we were so thankful to have found it. Very clean, comfortable beds, good showers...truly the perfect spot as a base to Torres del Paine. Laura went above and beyond in helping us plan out our trekking route, arranging buses, etc. They prepared breakfast for us, which was wonderful to have. On our way back through Puerto Natales, we had a few hours to wait until our bus departed for Punta Arenas, and Laura even let us store our packs so we didn't have to lug them around all day. Wonderful experience. We recommend it to ALL travelers as a home away from home!

Room Tip: Book well in advance during busier seasons!!

One of the most pleasant hostels I've had the pleasure to stay in. Owners are very friendly, and always available to help and give advice. They organised our bus to Torres del Paine and gave us information on where to hire camping gear, also easy to store things while camping. Very clean place, beds are sooo comfortable! Breakfast was good too. Owners also make an effort to be green, and have recycling and reusable shopping bags available. The place is very small, but it makes it cozy and easy to get to know all the guests. Easy walking distance to shops and restaurants.

This cute little hostel only has three rooms (two double, one dorm). Our bed was really comfy and the room well heated. Bathrooms were super clean as was the kitchen. Breakfast was really nice with good bread etc. Owners and staff were really friendly and on call next door whenever you needed them. Highly recommended!

So glad i picked this hostel, we were just there for one night but got so much help from David and Laura and felt so at home that I wish I had been there for longer. The place just has a few rooms so it feels very safe and friendly. David was there to welcome us when we arrived, weary after a day of travelling and gave us great advice on where to eat etc. He was so friendly without being overbearing and dealt really well with a double booking. The help-yourself breakfast was plentyful and good and they were kind enough to let us store our bags with them while we were treking, even though we were not coming back to stay. Bathrooms and rooms where clean and everything worked. A great place to relax before or after visiting TDP.

We felt so at home in the Tin House hostel in Puerto Natales. Laura is a wonderful host- from the start she answered our questions about the W trek and the surrounding area, and let us know we could arrange everything upon arrival. The rooms were good sized, super comfy beds, a lovely lounge area and nice communal kitchen table - perfect for tea/cake planning sessions, and cooking dinners together. Really recommended.

One of the best hostels we have stayed in in Chile, where we have been travelling for 2 months. We are a couple age 30 and stayed 2 days pre-'W' and 3 nights after.

Good:
- Excellent value for chile (we got 10% off with 'get south' - double room 21 000)
- All our post 'W' laundry done and dry the night we got back from the treck!! (4000/5kg load)
- Fantastico sur messed up our reservations for the 'W' and then closed on a sunday, so Laura (the owner) sorted it all out with them on monday morning (after we had left for the park) and emailed us with our booking!
- Laura and David run a travel agency so are very knowledgable about the park. Their agency is not for backpackers (more specalised and guided trips) so there was no 'selling' or conflict of interests.
- Well equipped kitchen, big, great breakfast available any time you want it (within reason!)
- Lovely comfy bed, heaters in all the rooms, warm heavy showers
- Speedy wifi, and a speedy spare computer
- Right round the corner from the erratic rock where you can go to the 'W' talk and hire gear, and supermarket 2 blocks away.

Bad
- Nothing! We saw some people found creaky floorboards but we were in one of the double rooms that openend onto the kitchen and werent bothered by noise. Guests I found quite considereate as its only an 8 person hostel.
- Its not a party hostel - there are only 8 guests, of which 4 are likley to be couples.

We stayed here purely by chance after our other hostel had double booked us. They called in and made a reservation here for us so up we rocked. What a wonderful, warm and comfortable place to rest up after the trek. We were in the dorm room and were one of 8 people staying here which was lovely. The breakfast was great and included eggs. Also catered for those leaving early. Good wifi. Laundry service offered. Outdoor area with hammock. Don't stay here if looking for a party. Two clean bathrooms. We didn't cook in the kitchen but was a good size and looked well equipped. Would recommend and stay again for sure.
