La Junta is a privately owned valley that is almost a mirror image of Yosemite with huge granite cliffs towering above it and hence a huge draw for rock climbers. It is accessed only by horsepack(3.5h) or hiking in(5h) and there are 2 hostels and a campground so no lodging over a 2 star rating and don't expect orient express...

Beautiful place to stay 4 hours into a beautiful valley. However keep in mind it is a Refugio. Granted it has window screens (seriously, first place I've seen them in South America, but definitely required up there for the horse flies), comfortable beds, and serves Pizza and delicious vegetarian meals. But they do get their electricity from a water-turbine, so...

This was truly the highlight of our month trip in Chile! We stayed at the Refugio for 5 nights and that was the perfect amount of time. It is very clean, the women who work there are super welcoming and friendly, the view is amazing and the food yummy. We cooked some nights and ordered their homemade pizza two nights....

No gain without pain! Oh I hate that sort of stuff it's reminds me of unfinished homework! The 13km trek in was a challenge for old legs through mud, marsh, gullies and driving rain but once there the refugio team swings into action. Silvina pulled us across the river in the flying fox and 5 minutes later Daniel met us...

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights in the dormatory and had a wonderful time here. The dormatory is a 18 person dorm and arranged in two rows of bunkbeds, all next to each other, but is quite nice as they have a divider every 2 beds so we felt like we were in a double bed. It is...

My husband and I recently spent two weeks at the Cochamo Refugio and we feel in love with the place, the people and the location. As soon as we arrived we were welcomed by the whole crew with hugs and warm smiles and we immediately felt like we were at home. In every aspect they went out of their way...

This is one destination/valley we shopped around, but not much to shop for. If you're staying in the upper valley, which is the whole reason to go, you have a choice of either Refugio Cochamo or Campo Aventura. Refugio Cochamo was half the price, more spacious, recently built, clean and had a fun, organized team. Great hiking, don't need a...

We camped at La Junta and stayed many more nights than we planned. Cochamo Valley is one of the most beautiful places in Chile and the campground is perfectly positioned for the finest views around. The owners were beyond helpful for recommendations for hiking, swimming, climbing, etc... The refugio is located just across the river and those camping are welcome...

This was a major trip advisor find, spent Christmas here with some great folks in a beautiful place. You have to be prepared of course, there are great showers (but they are heated by wood and available only at about 6), the trek in is indeed muddy and not the most lovely hike ever (we did it in just over...

This beautiful refugio has I think two rooms for couples (with a space above, like a loft, for a third adult or a child), and it was in one of these rooms that my wife and I booked for five nights. Outside these rooms is the dorm accommodation, which is much the usual sort of thing: two tiers of mattresses...

“Dorm was fine but I preferred the private room on the far end.”

“Book early if you want a private room.”
 of 5 bubbles Aegir101, 28 Feb 2014 | Read review
“There are are only two double rooms. Part of the dorm is being converted to another double soon. If you want privacy book early although the dorm is well set up with partitions. Breakfast is provided and delicious pizzas can be ordered as well as an evening meal. If you need to save money pack in some lunch stuff and evening tucker but their meals are great.”

“Rooms fill up. We had to change our itinerary slightly for getting availability. Book ahead of time. Careful of the showers. Unlike other barely warm hostels we stayed at, this place has firewood heated tanks, and the water is great yet can burn if not careful.”
