“Not a Bad Place to Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

Just stayed here for two nights with my girlfriend and used it as a base for checking out Punta Arenas sights / activities. The location is very convenient for shopping, restaurants, the bus stations, and the shore. We were able to walk to anywhere we wanted to go without any problem.
The room was old but roomy, a very comfortable bed, and the shower worked great for us. The staff was very helpful and called multiple tour operators for us to book activities. The included breakfast was good and the first day it included homemade crepes that tasted great.
The price could not be beat and that was what really sold us on staying here. Overall it is in need of some TLC but I would not hesitate to recommend it to friends.

Fin del Mundo lost my reservation, and I was sent here.

I was given a room on the 2nd floor facing the street. This is a busy street and people were racing up and down, while noise came in from the bar on the corner. This went on all night--I may have gotten some sleep. Early in the morning the neighbors came out and talked. I could hear every word. When I mentioned this to the hotel it was like---you got a room, what do you want? A bad night

Room Tip: find something quiet.

We stayed here a night and wish we hadn't. The room was worn, dirty and the beds were OK to bad. The building is old and was in need of repair. The shower was useless to the extent that we had to clean ourselves using cups from the bathroom sink. The staff claimed it had just broken, but I don't buy it for a minute. The breakfast was OK. The staff was friendly if unhelpful.

The location was good.
