Hostal Independencia
Ranked #5 of 36 Punta Arenas B&B and Inns
Reviewed March 29, 2013

We paid 12,000 for a double room, which is less than half we have paid anywhere else in 3 months in Chile. We adjusted our expectations because of the price and were pleasantly suprised. Clean room with big cupboard, great wifi in rooms, a tv, and a kitchen. Hostel sleeps 18 + campers, capacity in kitchen is about 6 so be prepared to wait, and the other living areas are petite. However for this price we coudlnt believe the excellent breakfast and customer service. Ten mins walk to supermarket/city center.

Room Tip: Book the one double room ahead. Two other dorms upstairs and reccomend these as oppose to the 3 dow...

Visit this hostel if you're in Punta Arenas and want to have a outstanding "value for money"-deal.
The very friendly owner Eduardo, takes his time to explain you all the whereabouts regarding Punta Arenas. They have one shared dorm of 4 persons and private rooms. The rooms and the bathroom is clean, the interior is very cozy, the kitchen is a bit small but neat.

Although a bit out of town it is an excellent place to stay. Very homely and clean rooms, warm, bathrooms with power showers and a very friendly host! He serves one of the best breakfasts in all of Chile. You won't go hungry and his omelettes are delicious. The price is very reasonable, making this best possible value for money!

Even if this hostel is not in the center of the city, it was excellent. The best breakfast I´ve ever had in a hostel, confortable rooms, clean and new bathrooms and a very reasonable price! Edouardo will provide you all the info you need for your travel.

Nice clean hostal with very modern showers and bathrooms. Well heated. 4 computer stations available with wifi also. Eduardo makes the experience. He is easy going, friendly, and very helpful as well as knowledgable in all things Punta Arenas. His spanish was understandable and he could make sense of my terrible español. I can't imagine finding a better value in Punta Arenas.

We wanted to see whales in Punta Arenas and Eduardo gave us a great tip! He told us we could leave with a small boat to see whales and much cheaper then Whalesound, it was a great experience and came back after three days. You go to the same area as Whalesound so don't hesitate if you have the opportunity!

My partner and I stayed (camping in the garden as we're cycle touring, which worked out cheaper than the main hostel) earlier this year. Eduardo really 'makes' the experience, as he's extremely friendly and helpful, even while he's rushing about dealing with other guests, cleaning, sorting out the computers, etc. It's very impressive. It's not the swankiest place, and is a bit shabby inside, but it is very clean and the price and the service from Eduardo more than make up for it. There is good wifi and two good, hot showers. One thing to note if you're planning to camp: the garden is small, so you need to turn up early in order to grab a pitch.
