“Bad service, private rooms not private”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2012

The rooms are divided by what can only be described as paper thin ply wood so you hear every detail of the neighboring rooms. Coupled with that the room descriptions are very misleading and the prices stated online through other services don't match any of the prices once we arrived. Overall was one of the worst values I've yet found in chile and I've been traveling a while. Honestly my tent or car is a better place to stay... Go someplace else and don't be tricked... Please

This was a decent hostel. I had originally booked a double room with shared bath, but when I arrived they led us to a double with private bath. I had to remind them of my original reservation (without a private bath) and the agreed upon price, as it seemed that they have just otherwise charged me the full rate of the room with private bath. Since I brought it up immediately, they eventually allowed us to stay in that room at no extra cost. The next day, my boyfriend and I were heading to Torres del Paine and were hoping to get information from the staff about camping and the best routes to take, but they were extremely unhelpful. The information they gave us was long-winded and hard to understand (fluent Spanish speakers may find it adequate, but we did not). We later attended an information session held at Erratic Rock I (3pm daily), which was EXTREMELY helpful. We ended up renting all of our camping equipment from them and decided to stay there after the trek to get a 20% discount on the rental (you get the 20% off if you stay there before as well). Overall, Nikos II is a decent place and I recommend it for the double rooms, but not the information they provide.

If you’re looking for a hostel where you can get excellent service as well as help and advice for planning your trip to Torres del Paine, then Niko’s II is the place for you. Paula and John are extremely generous with their help and advice. Paula will pick you up and drop you off at the bus. You can store your excess bags there during your TDP trip. They will make all the bookings for you for your TDP trip, without charging a surcharge or booking fee as other agencies do. They can also give you advice on where to rent any extra gear you need, or delicious restaurants to try.

Breakfast included yogurt, freshly blended kiwi juice, coffee/tea, corn flakes, and thick slices of white bread (and of course dulce de leche and jam). We were tired when we arrived and we ended up sleeping very late the first morning. We were delighted and surprised to be served breakfast just before noon -- no problem! How kind is that!

We stayed in a double, private room with private bathroom. The room was a good size and had a small TV with some English channels. Our only complaint would be the other guests who were noisy and the snoring guy in the next room.

There are a couple of computers in the lobby for guests to use, plus WIFI in the rooms if you have your own laptop. They can arrange to have your laundry done for a very reasonable charge. There are dorm rooms and a kitchen to share if you want to cook your own meals.

A highly recommended place in Puerto Natales!
