“Great Value - Great Staff”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

We enjoyed our time here. My friend and I had a private room with two beds. The room had everything we needed (I was surprised to see a TV, keep in mind it is a hostel) and was exceptionally clean. Bathrooms and kitchen were just outside the room but didn't cause any issues with noise (which I thought it might).

Best of all was the staff, very polite and helpful, at one point we had an issue booking out next hostel and the woman called around the town we were headed to for about 30 mins until she found us a room, so nice! The place had a quiet and relaxed vibe.

Room Tip: If you can swing the extra $$$, go for the private rooms on the top floor.

Stayed here one night with two friends. We pretty much had a full apartment that could sleep 7 people in it. Tv, fridge, kitchen! Definitely a bang for the buck. It's far from luxury but it was a place to crash. Free wifi in lobby. Free basic continental breakfast. 10 min walk to straight of magellan and 5 min walk to center square. If the price is right, it's a fair place to stay.

They haven't had availability for the time I needed but they phoned several nearby hostels before they got a room for me! I can only imagine how great a stay at this place would have been! Also, the Internet worked great and thw subtle smell of food was delicious - I arrived at dinner time.

We stayed here for one night in December 2012. Our stay was fine, with the breakfast in the morning being the best bit. The beds were pretty comfortable too. I don't think it was great value for money, but I think all the hostels in Punta Arenas seem pretty pricey for what you get.

The room was simple but nice, comfortable bed, good shower, everything you need to be comfortable.

The heating was super effective which is something super importabt in this part of the world, particularly during winter.

Breakfast is included in the room, and consists of instant coffee/tea, milk, cereal, fresh bread, butter, jams and cookies/pastries. Fruit would be a great add-on!

There is a kitchen but I didn't feel comfortable using it considering it is like in the house of the owners - the rooms are upstairs and their house / kitchen / living room is down-stairs. Also, the hours to use the kitchen are limited. But it can be used.

There is laundry facilities on site at a fair price - a plus!

Overall pleasant stay and decent value for money. We ended up going back a second time, so that's a good sign.

Only 9 blocks from the bus station, so perfectly located for us. Very ample room with all the amenities including our first TV on this trip.. Only caveat is if you need to use the kitchen to cook a bit of dinner, it is chaotic.. That said, the proprietors young son is probably the cutest kid ever and will entertain you through the chaos.

We only stayed 1 night after a cruise before our early 5:30 flight the next day. The hostel is clean enough, reasonably priced, and the owners are very pleasant. It was a bit farther from downtown than we expected, though very close to the interesting cemetery. Our problem was we paid (quite a bit) for 1 load of laundry to be done, and it was not done until around midnight (we had to get up at 4 AM). If the staff did not have capacity to do the laundry they should have told us rather than keep saying "just a little bit longer". Also the comments about the place being rather loud inside (hardwood floors with no sound insulation) are correct, so keep that in mind if you are a light sleeper.
