29000 pesos for à double bed with Tv and wifi. The room was newly repainted. The bathroom is brand new and clean (rare in Chile). The breakfast is rich and served in à friendly place. You feel like home!
The staff is friendly and called the boat to Porvenir for us to know about the schedule. 3-4 blocks from city center and seashore.
I would highly recommend this hotel.

Magaly, with the help of her daughter, run a great hostal. We arrived close to midnight on a Sunday and they were still available to help us out. We did make sure they knew we were arriving late, but it was nice to be met with nice people. Magaly doesn't speak English, though her daughter has a good grasp of the language.

The grounds of the hostal are pretty and the rooms, though small, are well-appointed with hand-made linens and very clean. My only complaint is that hot water ran out too quickly for two people sharing a room.

Free wifi is available throughout the grounds and quite speedy. There are also two communal computers available to use.

Breakfast was your basic Chilean fare, but tasty and included.

The hostal can be a bit noisy depending upon what room you are in.

While I enjoyed the rooms, what sells me on Ainil is the family running it. Magaly and her daughter were very helpful. We had bus tickets to Puerto Natales awaiting us when we arrived (as requested by email), they held our luggage for four days while we hiked the Torres del Paine, and we were given good recommendations around town and were called taxis when needed. I would absolutely stay here again when I return to Punta Arenas.

Room Tip: Pick something on the second floor of the front building. There are two rooms away from the entrance...

Good value for lodging in Punta Arenas. Location is a few blocks from downtown (but don't trust google maps' interpretation of the address), basically a 5-10 minute walk. Rooms were small but felt cozy and all had good heaters in them. The host was very helpful in planning our visit ahead of time, and had good recommendations for restaurants and things to do. It's worth noting that while email communication was English, she does not speak the language so we sometimes needed help to communicate. Internet connectivity was not incredibly reliable either.

Overall a comfortable room and a standard Patagonian breakfast in a pretty convenient location. Probably not the nicest place in town, but we were satisfied with the value.

My wife and I stayed here for one night on our honeymoon while traveling back north from Ushuaia. The owners are extremely friendly and live in the home. It seemed we were the only guests at the time. We had a private room in a building seperate from the main house. The family personally prepared breakfast for us in the morning.

Down sides...they did not seem to get many guests, and electric and water were turned off in our building upon arrival and when we woke up in the morning. They were doing construction on the building in the morning and it was very loud. They were extremely apologetic about both and promptly turned on the electric/water when we asked.
