This was one of the smaller and more charming refuges we stayed at while doing the TMB. The couple who run it are really great hosts and look as though they enjoy what they're doing. We stayed in an 8-bed room with bunkbeds and a sink, which was kind of a step up in comfort from the big dorm rooms...

Nothing special or remarkable about this Refugio other than being smack in the middle of some of the most beautiful scenery on earth. Food was good, showers and toilets a bit rustic, service was attentive. The outdoor lawn on a sunny day would be perfect for lunch!

We were hiking TMB, and decided instead of staying in the town, we hiked ~ 1 more hour to stay at this refuge. They have hot shower, and 6 dorm-like rooms with bunker beds, they provided nice dinner at 7 pm, and breakfast the next day from 6:30 am. You can also ask them to prepare a to-go lunch for...

We did found this place fitted for the purpose it is made. We had been treated well after a pretty hard day. A hot shower, a clean and nice room, a good dinner and a nice veranda with a beautiful view. We recommend this place for a night stop before a hard way up.

We stayed here twice once in 2014 and once in 2015. Owners friendly, the rooms are clean, service is good. The dinner is unfortunately sub par. No originality. The same dinner meal was served both times and we confirmed with others that it is always the same. Breakfast is not special either. I would not recommend the packed lunch. There...

There are no small rooms at Nant Borrant so you have to be prepared to sleep in the same room as strangers. The Refuge is clean and a wood burning stove in the Common room takes the chill off the place. The Refuge is very well organised and run with precision by its owners. We had the demi pension option...

Staying here reduced our walk and elevation gain for this day. It is a well kept refuge and the owners are very obliging. Although the toilets are attached to the building, you do need to go outside - could be a bit cold depending on the time of year. No wifi here. The views are beautiful and a good location...
