    Decent location. Avoid if staying on Friday night.

    Hotel was nice but we were there on Friday night so there were riots/protests outside until about 2:30 a.m. We stayed in a private room with private bathroom which was nice. Towels were provided. Breakfast was decent. The staff was very nice. They have games available and beverages to purchase along with nice clean shared common spaces.

    Very Social hostel with a lot of sponsored events. There were always people in the common areas. Rooms were clean and the location was close to tons of things...but the street was a little sketchy at night.

    Private room with ensuite. Do not stay!!!

    Our room was not clean!!!! Don't stay here. Its been the worst place we have stayed in the whole of South America and we are not fussy travellers. We also had a private bathroom which was also dirty, so dirty in fact I did not even want to use it. We went for this hostel as it had high reviews but it definitely wasn't at a high standard. The breakfast that was included was also rubbish.

    The staff as this Hostal was extremely helpful and the environment was perfect. They had everything you could need. The man at the front counter even printed my bus tickets for me so that I could get to Puerto Natales which I thought was awesome. I would recommend.

    Great location, staff and the place to go if you want to party until the wee hours of the morning with staff in the communal area. Very noisy with no “quiet time” if you want to get some sleep.
