I booked a bed in a 4-bed dorm for two nights here. The room was a decent size, but one annoying thing is that the bathrooms were one level down - through the living room. Quite a pain when your habit is to make a dash for it in your towel! There were no female only dorms available either. The kitchen area is a little small, as is the living area (it's all in the same room).
The owner makes some lovely bread though that is available to buy every morning. That's about the only thing you can buy in Punakaiki, as the only shop is in a bar and has very few things - not to mention their staff being rather rude, and that's a French talking ; )
The much-looked-forward-to hot tub was out of order, and seemed to have been for quite a while - very disappointing.
All in all, this place offers standard comfort in a lovely spot!
