I find the previous review hard to understand as Marcelo, the owner, was nothing but friendly, helpful and courteous to us. We stayed here twice, each time for one night only. The hotel is above a shopping centre and relatively basic. However the rooms are clean, comfortable enough, there is free wifi, self-service breakfast and complimentary tea & coffee available in the small dining room in the afternoon / evenings. Marcelo was happy to store our luggage safely after we checked out and also allowed us to use the communal facilities before going to catch our bus. He was most helpful sorting out for us to visit the nearby penguin colony with a local tour company. This is probably the cheapest hotel that we have stayed in during our time in Chile and the service was just as good, if not better, than some more expensive places. Although, to be fair, service everywhere in Chile has generally been excellent. The hotel is above a shopping precinct on a Main Street and the walls are a little thin so it may not be the best place for a very light sleeper. Also there was a minor issue with the hot water - we had to run our shower for a long time before it warmed up. However, if you can live with the 'quirks' this is a great place to stay when travelling on a budget but requiring a private room with its own bathroom.
