“A cosy, friendly home from home”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

We arrived here after a 42-hour journey from San Pedro in the North and it was a wonderful, wonderful relief to find such a well-run, friendly, clean and comfortable hostel so close to the central plaza (1 min walk). The owners are really lovely people and will help you with anything you need for your Torres Del Paine trek (equipment, tips, luggage storage, bus and boat tickets) and try to make your stay as relaxed as possible. There are great, powerful, hot showers and roomy, very comfortable beds (we slept for 17 hours straight on our first night and woke up feeling like new people). The breakfast, which is included in the price, is delicious and plentiful. Cereal, milk, yoghurt, unlimited and scrummy warm home-made bread, real butter, coffee, tea, juice....just what you need before five days in the park. It is also served from 6.30am so you can get a good meal in before the bus takes you to Torres Del Paine. There´s a small kitchen available for guest use and the communal areas are light, clean and comfortable with tables for lunch and sofas for lounging about. Above all its an incredibly calm and restorative place, we will recommend it to as many people as possible.

This is a great place to stay, and they were very helpful in trying to set up things in Torres del Paine. I arrived at the end of the season, when services in the park were in flux, and it was a bit challenging to make things work. They are very friendly, the rooms were fine, and the breakfast very good.

This hostel has a series of shared-bath rooms; the perfect base for going trekking. Best of all, they have a huge, lockable set of shelves where they offer to keep some of your luggage as you go trekking. Perfect.

The breakfast was a little haphazard (not great when you're going trekking all day), and the owner/manager seemed confused about everything a lot of the time - but the rooms were clean, their rental equipment is competitively priced and in great nick, and it's a good budget option!

These guys helped us with all our travel plans, booking buses and making suggestions when the fire in the park changed our schedule. It is a local travel agency and affordable hotel in one package. Breakfast is good and rooms are clean, clientele is mature, mostly Europeans. Cecilia and her Swiss husband speak English. Fancy, it's not, but I still really enjoyed it, we did 3 separate nights as we explore the area.

We stayed here for 2 nights before our trekking in TdP and 3 nights after. We had a good experience but I dont think I can claim I experienced the same level of excitement as others have posted. Mr Werner seemed to be managing the place solo and I think this may have taken its a toll a little on his hospitality. He was very nice and generally helpful but just seemed a little down and didnt go out of his way to offer advice on ways to see TdP and the surrounding area (especially considering the recent fire damage) for eg when we asked him for advice/feedback on using JBA tours to see TdP he didnt mention that they offer a significantly lower level of service than the other companies.
Rooms - smallest we have experienced relative to the other half a dozen places we have stayed in Patagonia. They were clean - although the "spare" pillows did have a lot of hair on them. We asked if we could have larger room but were told that was being saved for some returning guests from TdP which is fine but considering when we returned (for 3 extra nights) we were given a similar small room (on the ground floor which is very noisy).
Bathrooms for our rooms are shared which is fine for us - they were small but generally clean (although I think the bins need to be emptied at the end of the day considering the no flush policy).
Common areas - awesome and the real highlight of this place. Large and bright (opposite to the rooms) and a great place to relax and meet your fellow travellers. There is also a kitchen for travellers which makes it really handy with 2 fridges so plenty of space for all.
Overall - I would recommend as the price is reasonable (in an expensive town), common areas are awesome, wi-fi and shared computer very reliable, overall cleanliness (especially common areas) is good, breakfast included (and lovely fresh bread), luggage storage while in TdP, a lot of information available in reception, mult-lingual host. Only negatives were rooms were a bit cramped and i think host was a little understaffed and tired in peak season.

Room Tip: try and get upstairs room as below it sounds like trampling elephants above you

we stayed at the upstairs matrimonial room for 1 night. It was a bright clean room with modern bathroom. Location was good: 3 to 4 blocks from the plaza de armas. Breakfast included (simple tea, coffee, bread and spreads), a small kitchen available to prepare meals (we didn't use it), cable tv (on an old box tv) and best of all, the owner spoke English and was very helpful with providing information on things to do. We originally planned on during the full W trek but because of the fire at TDP and closure of 2 lodges, we had 2 extra days/nights free. We had wanted to stay on at casa cecilia but they were fully booked (ended up staying at hostal de los castillos on bulnes st - equally excellent accom)

Casa Cecilia welcomed us with a lovely very very clean B&B. Werner gave us all the tips of how to arrange our stay in Torres del Paine the best and cheapest way. Cecilia is a great woman who is checking everything what is needed and helps with a big smile. The breakfast was fantastic! The best we had in Chile and so far after 2 months in South America. They bake their own bread, there is always cheese, juice and other goodies. They are amazing organizing the trips to Torres del Paine and also helping for onward tickets. The rooms are basic, but comfy enough.
