We put our tents in the garden, with an access to the house. Everything is clean and Eduardo knows how to receive people, thanks to him to his hospitality and for the work he's doing since 22 years ! I recommend this place for sure !!!

We stayed at there for 3 nights before and on return from our trip to Ushuaia. Eduardo was a great host and when we came back we felt at home. He gave us lots of useful advice and prepared a wonderful breakfast for us. I'd definitely recommend it for it great quality/price and hospitality. Thank you!

We camped here in our van for one night. There is sufficient parking for a few vehicles and a large grassy area for tents. Inside the hostel we had use of the kitchen, bathroom and living room. The whole place is so clean and cosey. Eduardo is such a helpful guy, helping us with booking taxis and allowing us to...

We were super stoked to find a place in town to camp. We lucked out as the camp area/yard seems to fill up fast. 5.000/night per person for camping; no breakfast available, but you can use the kitchen after 10a. WIFI and hot showers included. Eduardo was super helpful with Ido as well. Hostel also seemed to fill up quickly....

Eduardo is the man. He takes care of everything and he runs a great, small, cosy and clean hostel. Smallest kitchen we've ever seen, but it works. He has camping opportunities in his "garden" and knows a lot about the activities around Punta Arenas. The rooms were always clean and cosy!

Not a party hostel, comfy clean bed and rooms, showers had hot water, basic accommodation plus friendly welcome and assistance. Cramped kitchen but manageable. Great for budget travellers, ambiance makes it so nice! Good location, space for motorcyclists bikes, Eduardo and Pamela are terrific.

Clean, warm & friendly. Eduardo worked like a machine to keep the hostal humming. Breakfasts were good too. Inexpensive for a bed or cheaper again to put your tent up in the yard. Good location, easy walking to city centre or grab a collectivo to get to the shopping centre at the far end of town.

Doesn't look like much on the outside and the camping area is cramped, but Eduardo has created a warm and friendly atmosphere and has made it something special. His eggs in the morning are great as well. Someone posted that the room sizes were small, but they aren't any smaller than most hostels and they aren't crammed with bunk beds,...

Eduardo makes you feel like home in Punta Arenas. His breakfast is one of the best in whole South-America and the atmosphere in the hostel is warm and social. The place to meet new people! Showers are clean and hot and it's fun to cook in the kitchen. And all this for a cheap price. Awesome place!

“We had a nice double room on the 2nd floor. Quite, warm and cosy”

“Get the double room upstairs if possible, the one downstairs that's near the kitchen (but not inside it) is very cold as the rooms are not heated!!”
meeky82, 2 Dec 2014 | Read review
“Most rooms are co-ed bunks, but there are private options. Rooms upstairs were a bit nicer than downstairs generally. Except the large front room we were in for a night.”
  • When the rooms are full, you can camp in the yard.

“Book the one double room ahead. Two other dorms upstairs and reccomend these as oppose to the 3 downstairs as im sure they would be quieter.”
