    This is the perfect place to stay before your trip to Torres del Paine or any other part of Patagonia. Can't stress how great it was and how accommodating they were in helping me get everything together before my trek!

    This hostel is cozy- you immediately feel like you're at home. The owner works really hard to make sure you enjoy your time in Patagonia- he has lots of great advice, and some equipment if you need it. He also drove us into town one day when it was raining - my friends and I appreciated how he goes above and beyond. In the room, beds were really comfortable and lockers were good size for valuables. Kitchen has everything you need to cook. Would recommend.

    Great place to stay. Very clean with good bathrooms and hot water. Francisco is very nice and very helpful with planning torres del Paine. Breakfast is bread, yogurt and coffee and tea. The kitchen is very good as well. Only con would be small rooms. 10min walk from the bus station.

    Francisco is an amazing host - helpful, funny and flexible. The hostel is just four blocks down from the bus station and very close to restaurants and hiking gear rentals. Bathrooms are clean. Rooms are small, but Francisco let us keep our bags in the corridor. He also stored out luggage for free when we went backpacking for four days. Wifi is not great. There is paid laundry facility. This hostel is our favorite in our 12 day trip to Chile.

    Francescos (jr and sr) and both really nice guys, and very helpful. We were driven into town one night to grab cash and food for the next day - really kind guesture! The problem the hostel has is that it’s small - small rooms mean you feel in each other’s space and you can hear the other guests really easily. Overall still a great hostel

    I'm so so glad we chose Zaltaxar for our night before the W trek! Francisco stayed up with us until 2am helping to pack our bags efficiently, giving us advice, and even lending us one of his own backpacks. If you're heading into Torres a little under-prepared, stay here--he'll help ya out. We were also able to leave extra baggage at Zaltaxar to pick up after the W.

    The owner of this hostel is one if the nicest I met on my trip. Amazing guy and if you have any question on anything about Torres del Paine, he'll know it. He even helped me remove a red wine stain (caused by my own stupidity). Please be aware that this hostel is reaaaallly noisy. The walls are super thin so you hear everything. This is really annoying in the mornings, as many Israelis don't seem to get the concept that most people are asleep at 5 am and that whispering might be polite.
