Homely and comfortable hostel with great hosts. The bed was as nice as anything I've slept on, the memory foam pillows were particularly great. Breakfast is not included but the kitchen is very well equipped and is well stocked with condiments and herbs/spices. We rented gear for the w through the hostel and it was all of a high quality so I can also recommend this. Andres' advice about the torres del paine was invaluable. Highly recommended.
I only stayed here one night before moving on to Ushuaia, but I quite liked the hostel. Andres and Monica were very helpful and accommodating and knew all about Puerto Natales. A nice quiet place, not really a party vibe there, so its good if that´s what you want/need. Recommended.
Really excellent hostel. Owners very welcoming and accommodating. Securely stored our luggage whilst we trekked Torres del Paine. Would wholly recommend! Only improvement would be to include breakfast, however, plenty of facilities and a well stocked kitchen to prepare your own meals.
Nice hostel, good value for money. Breakfast isn't included but as there's a well equipped kitchen it doesn't matter at all. Our double room was spaceous and had a really comfortable bed. Monica gave us about an hour of her time to explain us everything about the region which we appreciated a lot! Recommendable!
A brief one night stay, but was very impressed by the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. If I pass thru Puerto Natales again, I will be staying here.
Andreas was very helpful and friendly. The hostel was warm, with good showers and an excellent kitchen. Just don't use Andreas's favourite wok!

Andres and Monica the hostel owners are amazing. we arrived in the afternoon planning to start the W trek the next morning optimistically. they rented us a tent, sleeping bags, mats, all cooking equipment (everything we needed) all very quickly, and arranged us bus tickets to Torres del Paine as well. the gear is good quality and reasonable price - less than US$70 each for 5 days total. rooms and common area are great as well, and bathrooms clean. these are certainly two great hostel owners.

Three girls who wanted to go to torres Del paine found the perfect hostel. The owners helped us with everything, we could rent all what was needed from a tent until a torch. And they informed us about all we needed to know. In total we passed 4 days in this cosy hostel with good showers and very good beds. Lovely details and clean!
We passed a perfect time at this hostel and with the help of the owners it was super easy to organize our torres Del paine trip ( they organized everything for us for a really good prize ). After our trip we came back and felt like coming home. Perfect beds and good showers in a very nice peaceful harmony.
Excellent hostel and absolutly lovely and helpful owners. Fabulous place to stay and prepare your trip to Torres del Paine and return to after a multiday trek and relax.

The couple that runs this is amazing! They definitely take care of you. They'll tell you where the best places to get food are, the best priced bus tickets, and will rent gear at a very good price. They also made sure I had a place to stay when I finished the circuit even though I wasn't sure how long it would take. They've been the most accodationing hostle I've stayed at.
Loved staying here, it's a wonderful hostel. Bright and cheery atmosphere and well equipped kitchen and plenty of space. The owner was extremely helpful with our trip to Torres del Paine and renting needed gear.
A familial like hostel with only 1 dorm and few private rooms. The owners are amazing, very dedicated and helpful, they make you feel at home. Everything is clean and comfy, many bathrooms, good wifi. We had a nice stay before and after a long hike in torres del paine. An excellent hostel! One thing missing is breakfast...
Nice place, nice location, clean and great great staff!!!
it's such a good hostel. staffs are nice. good location. good atmosphere the hostel itself is painted with various colors, which made my mood better. good cooking facilities,
Rarely leave any feedback, but we had such an amazing stay in El Patagonico that they truly deserve it. Monica and Andres are wonderful hosts and helped us prepare for our hike in Torres del Paine...not sure we would have gotten out there without them :) after several months traveling it was really nice to get the feeling of a "home" again. Definitely one of the highlights of Pureto Natales, thank you for a great stay :) Vilde

A great hostel, Andres and Monica are both very welcoming, informative and helpful. We stayed in a 4 bed dorm and it was perfectly comfortable. The hostel is comfortable and has very spacious cooking, eating and relaxign areas. Powerful, hot and clean showers/bathrooms. Only slight issue is that it is a little noisy if someone is walking in in the hallway later in the evening, no big deal though as it is a hostel! Perfect to relax before or after trekking in Torres del Paine. Would def return
An excellent hostel! The owners (an Argentinian couple) are awesome! They can explain you everything for Torres del Paine, sell you the bus tickets, rent you the gear you'll need. The hostel itself is great, with a lot of space, a very good kitchen and awesome beds!

Super séjour et staff, vous vous sentirez comme chez vous, tout est là. Bien placé dans la ville, super conseils pour Torres del Paine et le Chili. Allez-y, je recommande. Genial Hostal y staff, te hacen sentir como en casa, todo está acqui. Situado en el centro de la ciudad. Yo recomiendio.
Great hosts! They have very good knowledge of everything about Torres del Paine and the surrounding area. They also help guests to book bus tickets.
