A very warm welcome from the manager especially at 11:45pm! Toilet clean no t.p.. Paper thin walls so you could hear every word until 02:30am and also hear the smokers outside the front door and as well the two chilean girls who talked in the dorm room until I begged for silence at 01:30am. Apparently the locals have no respect for sharing common space and for quiet time. Breakfast extremely basic and boring / hard white buns with marmalade or dulce cream, tea, coffee, no real milk. Worst hostel


Pros: - close to town - cheap and good for a one night stay (as I did) - free pickup from Bus stop Cons: - dirty kitchen and few utensils for cooking - no lockers in rooms or in hostel - lots of Israelis - only 2 plug points in a 6bed dorm.

hello, sorry if someone use a utensils and not clean before you, we have lockers in another room of the hostel, if you had a bad trip apology, moreover we have time if you wanted to keep silent party in the city's pubs .at the hostel we have someone who is always cleaning the hostel, bathrooms, kitchen thanks for everything ...


Friendly and really helpful staff.


Just stayed the one night en route to Puerto Natales.. cheap as chips, you get what you pay for. As stated in other reviews, rooms smell - think there's some leaking plumbing. Also it isn't an English hostel, so make sure you bring your Spanish skills or a dictionary!

Enjoyed staying here, building is a little run down and kitchen is not the best I've seen but good atmosphere, warm & friendly. Claudio is a great host, and incredibly helpful.
