Great hostel, well equipped for everything you need before and after your trip to Torres or similar. Omar (the owner) is a lovely guy and helpful, good kitchen and close to supermarkets and other shops.
i ve been in this hostel for 3 nights with a friend....what should i say...just amazing...the confyest bed...the cleanest place...the most satisfying breakfast (Omar, the owner, even cooked for us omelettes and made sure that everything was perfect)...and a very relaxing atmosphere....The owner could even manage to book for us a tour for the day after in torres del paine at the very last moment ( 11 pm....) definetely reccomended :)))))

BEST BREAKFAST IN CHILE: a great breakfast is cooked every morning by Omar with omelete, fruit, cereal, bread and marmelade, yogurt...the best we had in all hostels in Patagonia Good advise for Torres del Paine trek and easy booking for your bus tickets to you next destination. Very helpfull staff! Very clean hostel, always prestine hot showers, lost of facilities so you never have to wait. Nice common areas, 2 computer for internet, fully equipped kitchen.
Desayuno is good, clean but the staff is unkind and had trouble with us. The price is too much.
Nice hostel with friendly and helpful staff. Great breakfast!
+ Omar gave us the perfect plan to do the W in Torres del Paine and the perfect equipment (tent, sleepingbag, cooking-stuf etc.) + There a Playstation in the livingroom with FIFA !!! + BEST BREAKFAST Ever!! (eggs, nutella, manjar, cheese, ham, cornflakes, tee, coffee, kaba....) --> perfect before going to torres del paine + perfect clean! Nice and new bathroom! + cheap landry- and dry-service + best equiped kitchen we've ever seen while travelling! + cheaper bus tickets to the park - NOTHING!
Omar was incredibly helpful for recommendations for Torres del Paine, the breakfast is very good too. Just a few blocks walking from both city center and the bus station. The walls in the rooms are a little thin, so it is kind of loud, but otherwise a great hostel.
one of the best hostels I stayed in. for sure it is the cleaest hostel I've seen. great shower, great beds. Omar, the owner, is very friendly and nice. the breakfast is awesome! had a wonderful stay!
This is the best hostel I have stayed in during my trip in Argentina and Chile. Everything was working well, owner is incredibly nice and helpful, ikitchen is fully equiped and breakfast is amazing (best omelette ever in South America!). Also Internet is quite quick and I have met really interesting travellers there. Only hot water is available 12 hours, but for me is sufficient. I strongly recommend this place.
Owner is fastidious, but for good reason. The hostel is always very clean and well looked after. Fantastic breakfast and good equipment hire available for the Torres trek. Super warm and comfortable rooms. Lots of really good showers and separate toilets. Locker storage whilst in the park is for free, as long as you return for at least one night to the hostel afterwards, otherwise it's about $1 a day. Would highly recommend this hostel!
This place does cooked eggs for breakfast. But if you are really fond of stale bread with jam for breakfast you should probably stay somewhere else. Despite what I'd read before Omar, the owner, was incredibly helpful in booking trips and tickets and made organising my Patagonia trip so much easier. Although I'd rent camping gear for Torres del Paines from places on the high street. They were cheaper and similar quality than that offered at the hostel.
The hostel is owned and run by Omar who is a "different" personality. If he likes you then you are all good but if not look out!! The best thing is he is OCD clean!! This is one of the cleanest hostels I've stayed in and has a great breakfast.
WARNING: Do not ask the hostel to book bus tickets - The owner gave me the wrong ticket, I had to pay for a second ticket when I found my seat occupied. Owner admits fault but won´t give me any money back. Do not hire equipment from this hostel - The one man tents that we rented from the owner had severe leaks. The owner is only willing to compensate for the nights it rained. Crazy, god help those for whom it rains all 5 nights of the W Trek. Gets crowded at breakfast and you may need to wait.
The owner is overworked and thus becomes rude. I rented tent and sleeping bag from him, tent leaked and the sleeping bag zipper was broken. He got really upset. He s not the one who got soaked in his tent! I met an other guy who had the same problem with the tent. He is knowledgable and can be helpful for the W, but alone he can t do it all. Nutela for breakfast was a great surprise and a bonus.
This is a really lovely hostel, and Omar is a great host and gives all the information required before leaving for Torres del Paine. The only issue was that once he got angry because we left the dishes to dry, which we thought was a bit unncessecary. Apart from that the experience was great and I think that he felt a bit bad after getting angry and made an extra effort too. Also, breakfast is absolutely amazing.
the owner is amazing! the breakfast is awsome! location is good, located near the centet and all the shops. wifi is good but avilable just in some parts of the hostal. rooms are clean, you can do laundry there and rent gear for torres del paine trek, even though the gear we rent wasn't the best but we could stil handle it, it's comfortable that you take and returne in your own hostal. lockers are avilable but there's not enough for everyone.. great place to stay! feels like home :)
Host was very nice and helped to organise the trip to Torres del Paine. He also rented stuff what was necesary. Kitchen area very nice with a big table and very clean. It is a great hostel to prepare your trip to the national park. During your absence iyou also can leave your big lugagge in the lockers for free!! :-)
-nice hostel!! -helpful staff! -good breakfast
An awesome little hostel. Decent showers and extremely clean throughout. Probably one of the best hostel breakfasts I have ever had. Stayed here on 3 separate occasions. The owner Omar is a friendly and helpful guy, with a quirky sense of humour. And if you play FIFA on the ps3 expect some intense matches with him. Great hostel, stay here!!
