“Very poor place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2012

Terrible basic rooms.
No locks on the doors.
No heating in rooms.
No furniture, minimal lighting minimal everything!
Not enough hot water for a shower.
Very kind hostess.

Small house with a couple of rooms. Shared bathroom (2 sinks + 2 showers/toilets).
Breakfast in the kitchen with a (good) herbs omelet, yoghurt, cereals, hot drink, fruit, cereal. Powder milk can be surprising (possible to store food in the fridge for your own preferred stuff).
5,000 pesos of you want to do a load of laundry (air-dry outside or inside by the stove).
Very nice living room to hang out, computer, music, wood stove.
Basic accommodation but Paola and the staff are really nice.
Travel agency for any extra travel needs.
Walking distance everywhere in Puerto Natales.
Allerigs beware: there is a cat in the house.

Room Tip: Room 1 is a twin-bedded room.Nice but in front of the entrance door of the house.

We only stayed here because our other hostel was full, but we we were really pleased with it. It has a cozy, homey feel and the lady who runs it is really sweet and she made us scrambled eggs for breakfast. When we were there, a young German guy was helping out, and he was super nice as well. They cleaned constantly as well.
We had to fly out late in the afternoon, but they let us hang out in the hostel while we waited. I´d certainly have to say we got our money´s worth! (Hot showers too)

Having spent eight nights in a tent we looked forward to some comfort on our return to Puerto Natales. Not to be! This was without doubt the worst experience of out great trip to Chile. The building is not clean, the room was cramped, and the breakfast was a joke. A single bread roll (on the table since the night before we guessed) washed down with coffee made with tepid water from a thermos. No staff of any kind visible on that morning. There is lots of good accommodation in Puerto Natales...avoid this place.
