I wasn’t expecting much when overnighting in Puerto Natales at Hostal Alcazar before transferring to Torres Del Paine in late November 2012. I didn’t realize when booking, but the hostel is conveniently located near the bus terminal for the bus from Calafate (Argentina), slightly downhill and only about 2 blocks away (see the attached tourist map from the bus terminal info desk). Some posts worried about the surrounding neighborhood – sure houses are a bit run-down but it’s not much better in other parts of town, and I felt quite safe walking from the hotel to the main town center (maybe 10-15 min walk). The front desk staff were friendly and helpful enough. I was happy with my 2nd floor room, which was larger than I expected for a “hostal”. It was clean and well kept with a large, comfortable bed and large windows overlooking the street (not much of a view though). There was no in-room safe and no closet, but a wardrobe. The bathroom was more compact with a shower and no bath, but again clean and well maintained. Maybe my only complaint was the included breakfast, which was very basic. “Alcazar” conjures up images of a castle - it wasn’t, but I thought it was good enough and much better than my expectations.
