Refugio Torres Central is a classic trekking hostel that manages to have a great cozy atmosphere. The location of the refugio is ideal, beautiful and near the trekking path up to the Mirador Torres and into the W.
- great staff, very helpful
- very atmospheric dining area with bar area as well, very nice for relaxing after a trek
- hot water
- delicious pisco sour happy hour
- bathrooms get dirty at night
- rooms are open at the top, so you can hear everyone in the hall. This means no sleeping until everyone quiets down
- the lights are turned off at night, be prepared to stumble to the bathroom if you need to go after midnight
All in all a pleasurable stay with good value for money. If you do not want something more chic, take out your credit card and stay in the very overpriced hotel down the road.
