“Great value”
Reviewed December 16, 2011

Third floor has 4 rooms, separate bathrooms for girls and boys and great kitchen. Rooms were large enough and kitchen nicely equiped. Average breakfast, but great value for the money.

The rooms were very large but VERY noisy. You could hear every footstep from all of the surrounding rooms and felt like all of your neighbors were in the room with you. The owners were very nice and accomodating and even set up breakfast for us earlier than usual so we could catch our tour. We really enjoyed the hostel but if you are a light sleeper I would go somewhere else.

We stayed at this hostel during the gas strike in Punta Arenas so we were probably on a bit of a downer whilst there. However, we felt so lucky that we were staying at Keoken, as did the other guests who were there. The beds were excellent as were the showers and the breakfast was cereal, toast, cookies, jams, coffee and lots of different teas. Sometimes there was also cake or flan. The facilities for cooking your own food were also pretty good too and that's what most people did due to restaurant closures. We had a room at the top of the house with shared bathroom but it was opposite the room. We also had another kitchen in our separate annex. I think including ours, there were two other rooms sharing it but it was never busy because there was also the downstairs kitchen. We had a double and a single bed and the room was very spacious and light. The duvets were amazing. The owner, Ricardo was very friendly and seemed to oblige everyone with lifts to parks, airports and buses etc. He also made a number of phone calls for the guests. I know that people really appreciated this during the strike but I think it is also normal service from this hostel. We loved it here and have been traveling a while so know it compares well against others.

I had a great experience in Hostel Keoken, and only regret that I didn't have time to stay longer. The rooms were clean and cozy, the beds had down comforters (definitely a plus for a place so far south!), and the hot water worked great when I took a shower. They have a kitchen with all the pots and pans you need to cook, and I met some really interesting fellow guests, 30-something travelers, when I was making dinner. The breakfast they provided in the morning was great.

The only criticism: They didn't seem to understand that we were in a hurry to catch a bus, or didn't explain this to the taxi, so I wound up arriving at the bus station a little too close to the departure time for my comfort.

This place is slightly removed from the action, maybe 10 minutes' walk from the Bus Sur station. It was a great place to rest, especially since many travelers in Punta Arenas are on their way to or from some really intense outdoor adventure... I only recommend that you try to avoid having an 8:30am bus the next morning like I did, so you can sleep in and enjoy the very comfortable beds!
