“look no further, this is your hostel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2010

Las Carretas is the best hostel we stayed at in all of Patagonia. The rooms are beautiful, clean, and incredibly comfortable. The atmosphere is warm and friendly and the breakfasts are very tasty. Laundry service on site, kitchen, and television in each room for those who need to veg out after trekking. There is even a bar and lounge on site. Location is only about 3 short blocks from the main street - perfect. The staff are extremely helpful, kind, and also hilarious; they made our stay very memorable.

We stayed here for five nights in January. It is a simple B&B but excellent value for money. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good. I am not giving it a five star because it was quite difficult to sleep at times. I think we were unlucky to have a group of very noisy Austrians staying who would come back at about 2 in the morning at get up at about 6, and decide to slam doors and speak very loudly all the time. If you are a light sleeper, be aware that the walls are thin. But overall, I would recommend this B&B.

We really enjoyed Puerto Nateles and the general area, including the parks. It is a nice break from the cities.

Beautifully decorated rooms, very clean and cozy. We had a twin room with bathroom and it was a perfect change after spending some days in different refugios in Torres del Paine. Nice breakfast! A great place to stay! Unfortunately the guy who was there during our stay did only speak Spanish. Location: not directly in the center but within easy walk.

We spent one night in Hostal Las Carretas after returning from Torres del Paine. The room with twin beds was nice, and it was very quiet. The owners were friendly but I don't think they spoke much English, so we had to try to get along in Spanish.
The breakfast was nothing special, quite the basic fare that you normally get in Patagonia.
The location is a few blocks from the center, but not much more than 5 minutes walk, in a quiet residential street.

This hostel is very cosy, comfortable, beautifully designed with good amenities but overall the best are the hosts, especially Richard who made sure everyone feels at home, well taken care of, well informed and generall confortable. highly recommended!!!

  • Liked — the staff
  • Disliked — a bit off the main tourist area but that could be an advantage too. its a small town anyway.
