Big Bang Patagonia
Ranked #12 of 50 Puerto Natales B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 8, 2013

Me and my family stayed here for 3 night. We had the room 1 y 2 for ourself and they have everything we were expecting: Bath for ourself, breakfast and nice beds.

They have everything you need if you want to visit Torres del Paine, the glaciars, etc. The price it's right, the even have a storage so you can trek lightweight.

Imagine this.

Everyday.... you get up, make breakfast, see the kids off, clean the house, change the sheets, welcome a new load of kids, answer all the same questions the new kids have that the ones yesterday had, check all the new kids are ok, go to sleep, get up at 5am to make breakfast, see the kids off.... tough eh?

But Bill and his small team do this effortlessly and with such care. Juggling a reservations book of kids not knowing whether they're coming or going must take the patience of a saint and perhaps 'Saint Bill' might be fitting.

With a brother that runs a bar next door, equipment hire and the legendary 3pm TdP advisory 'talk' (free to everyone even if you're not staying at the hostel), Saint Bill will guide you and care for you.

Here endeth today's lesson. Ignore it at your peril.

We were planning to stay here before and after the W trek. The first time I contacted them for a reservation, I got no reply. The second time, they confirmed the reservation, but upon arrival there was no record of this. Maybe they recorded the reservation for erratic rock 1, even though I clearly indicated on the reservation form that we were making the reservation for erratic rock 2.

We ended up staying the first night anyways since they had a room available. It was comfortable enough but nothing special (though the bathtub might have been nice after the hike - most other places have only shower). More like a truckstop motel than a bed & breakfast. We wanted to sleep in a little before the hike so we got to breakfast near the end of the designated time range - the eggs had been left out that whole time so were cold and gross.

We moved to Hostal Amerindia for the second night, and liked everything about it (rooms, location, breakfast, service) much better.

We, like everybody else, stayed here the night before and the night after our trek in Torres del Paine. They have a great breakfast, scrambled eggs, salami, cheese, yogurt, cereal, home-made bread, fruits, coffee/tea. The rooms are simple but very clean and comfortable. We had room 4 and 3 (1st night and last night) and wifi didn't work in both rooms. They do have a computer in the lobby area you can use for free. People leave half empty cans of fuel in the lobby area so if you forget to buy fuel it seems that they always have some. We saw at least 4-5 of them sitting around both times. It's maybe a 5-10 minute walk to the center of town where they have a big grocery store, banks, junk shops, and restaurants. We enjoyed a fabulous meal at Angelica's after our trek. One more thing, if you pay in Chilean pesos, they give you a slight discount :) great stay!

This was the perfect spot for our night before and after Torres del Paine. It's described as a "hostel for couples" which I believe is pretty accurate. It really has everything you need; we had a nice room with a bathroom, no frills, but very comfortable. The bus to take you to Torres del Paine will literally pick you up from the hotel, which is great, and even better, we could leave our extra luggage in their storage room which we picked up after the hike. The rooms weren't very soundproof (we had some loud people next door on the first night) and the wi-fi doesn't work much further than the common area, but overall, I was very happy to stay there. And after the tents and refugios in Torres del Paine, coming back to a private room with a clean, non-muddy bathroom was such a great feeling!

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!
