Nice place: clean, quiet, attentive and friendly staff, great breakfast, excellent value. A little less social attmosphere than the original Erratic Rock I, but still recommended. Note: Wireless/WiFi does not work in rooms towards the back of the complex.

My stay here was meant to be. I had actually booked Hostal Shakana, but when I turned up, they had no record of my booking and were basically very unhelpful. I walked down to Erratic Rock where a friendly and helpful staff member suggested Erratic Rock 2 and I'm so pleased she did. Erratic Rock 2 is really comfortable with enough space in the room to organise your pack before and after hiking. They are happy to store your luggage whilst you go off hiking, and on your return, you have the anticipation of a heavenly hot shower.

Breakfasts were plentiful and tasty. Wifi didn't work at all the first time I stayed but had been fixed by the time I returned a few days later and then worked really well.

If you are looking for comfortable and clean accommodation pre and post hiking, I can definitely recommend Erratic Rock 2. Oh, it is a little walk from the centre of town, but after the hiking you are about to do or have just done, it is nothing!

Stayed: November 2012, traveled solo

We mistakenly went to Erratic Rock I first, a hostel. They directed us to the right place and one of the men actually walked with us part of the way. One of the reception persons was particularly helpful when we had questions. Another did not seem to understand the idea of a wake up call.
All in all a perfectly nice place to stay around the exploration of Torres del Paine, and reasonably priced. they had a nice little dining area with cereal, fruit, good eggs, yogurt, sweet rolls, coffee, and tea for breakfast. A small area for the shower inside a high sided tub - be careful. The bed was comfortable and the lighting ok. We were never able to connect with the wifi here.

My husband and I stayed in Erratic Rock 2 earlier this month, one night before and one night after our trek in Torres del Paine. While located slightly out from the main part of town, the extra walk is worth it, as this was definitely one of the best hostels / b&bs we stayed in while in Chile. Very friendly staff who were so helpful and with good English, comfy beds and best of all a great hot shower with good water pressure - I really enjoyed my hot shower there after five days of trekking!!! They were happy to store our luggage when we were off trekking, it was no problem whatsoever. The breakfasts were also good, with scrambled eggs, home cooked bread and some sweet cake on offer too. If we didn't have onward flights arranged I would have liked to have stayed longer just to chill out and relax in this very clean, relaxed and comfortable place. Definitely recommend!

We stayed there when it was early in the season, but they made accomodation for us being a day late(stupid airport glitch). Clean, quiet. Nice back entry to avoid waking up other or being awakened by late night folks. A bit of a walk from the center of town, but not a big deal .

Room Tip: Ask for the doubles on the separate single floor. Away from the street wasn't necessary, because...

Stayed for 5 nights with the W trek sandwiched in between. Matthais was very friendly, spoke very good English and helped with booking a day trip to El Calafate. Located about a 10 mins walk from town, ER2 was a really friendly, relaxing place to stay. Shared kitchen was a welcome touch after a long day exploring. Great place for couples, solo and groups. Highly recommended.

This is one of the best hostels I stayed at in Chile. The atmosphere is very relaxed and and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Marcella (the boss) speaks excellent English and is really eager to provide you with additional information regarding Puerto Natales and the surrounding parks. We stayed here 4 nights in a double room with a private bath. The room was nice and very clean. The staff only cleans the room if you want to (you have to leave the key at the reception in the morning), otherwise there will be no intrusions into the room like in some other Chilean hostels. Breakfast is generous and there is free WiFi in all of the rooms. There is also one public computer in the reception. Internet is a bit on the slow side, making internet calls and picture uploads nearly impossible.

The hostel also offers tours, which are carried out by other tour agencies from Puerto Natales. We booked two one day tours with them -- Torres del Paine and Perito Moreno. The staff is not entirely up-to-date regarding additional information/costs concerning the tours (park entrance fees for the argentinian Perito Moreno).

In my opinion the only downside of the hostel is its location, It takes about 5 - 10 minutes to walk to the town centre (Plaza de Armas).
