Hostal de la Patagonia
Reviewed January 12, 2011

The place was overall very clean. However, like someone else had previously mentioned, the people at the hostal quote to rip you off. She initially quoted a transfer to the airport at $50(US) or $22000 CHL. We refused the offer and asked the lady at the front desk to call a taxi to come pick us up, she refused and said that her service was better and went down to $33(US) or $15000 CHL. Suspicious that the price dropped so low and frustrated that the woman refused to accept our request, we decided to just go outside the Hostel and get our own taxi and what do you know? We only ended up paying $17(US) or $8000 CHL. They suck and take advantage of tourists

The hostal is a good value with nice clean rooms at a good price. The friendly middle-aged woman at the front desk was helpful in booking a tour to the penguin island and an early morning airport transfer. Having just arrived in Chile, we were still unfamiliar with the currency and the general costs of things and trusted that the prices she quoted us for the excursion and taxi were reasonable. Later on, we realized that we paid about 50% more for both services than what other people paid.

My recommendation would be to avoid booking any excursions or transportation through this hotel unless you are sure the price is fair. It's a shame because other than this bad experience it was a nice hotel.

Overall it was fine. Convenient location. One room had no window but a skylight. The person at the front was extremely helpful, helped us get our cell phones working.

Two negative experiences - Initially quoted in US$ but had to pay in CLP and was given bad exchange rate. Also, we were told we had adjoining rooms by email. When we got there, found out they were adjoined by the common hallway. Not great for small kids.

Great value for money and the rooms are spotless, very quiet hostal run by an older chilean couple who are very friendly.

just around the corner from the bus terminal which is handy.

cable tv and decent breakfast with standard cheese ham and bread combos. Free internet as well which is on a older computer so can be slow
