If you're coming to Puerto Natales as a stopping point before a Torres del Paine trek, this is a perfect choice. The owner, Omar, is a tremendous help. They'll rent all camping gear out to you, and it's near Base Camp (where you can learn all about the different circuits of Torres del Paine). Short walk to bus station, great...

This hostal was awesome! The owner is one of the nicest people I have met in Chile. I lost some money while in Punta Arenas and didn't have enough to pay the entrance fee into Torres del Paine national park and he loaned me the money I needed until I returned to pay him back. He and maybe one other...

The Hostel is nice, clean and has a lot of room. It is a 5-10 minute walk to the city center. You can also rent your camping equipment for Torres del Peine there. Though, the owner seems to be a little grumpy in the first instance, he is a very nice and helpful person. Because he was the only one...

I loved this hostel! Honestly, one of the cleanest and best organized hostels I´ve ever stayed in. I know a lot of people of people go to the Erratic Rock but Kaweskar is just as good and with a better value for your money. Also, the Erratic Rock hostel is just around the corner if you want to go to...

We stayed at kaweskar hostel a couple of days before and after the W treck and we really loved it. It is a comfy and warmful place, it is just the perfect spot to get prepared for the treck and most of all to get some rest after it. Breakfast is amazing. Rooms and all common spaces are very clean....

You only have to read the previous reviews about what the owner of this place is like. And yes we experienced it too. A very aggressive, paranoid and judgemental man. How he is still operating is bewildering. Ok so the hostel is rather nice, large, a good breakfast and very clean. So clean, that the cleaner cleans the kitchen from...

I stayed here twice with a group of friends before and after our Torres del Paine W-trek and we had nothing but good things to say. The hostel is cozy with very clean rooms and awesome bathrooms. Yes, there are (sensible) rules about not wearing your hiking shoes around the hostel but that's why it is so clean! Breakfast was...

Upon our arrival the guy at he front desk couldn't find our reservation even though we tried showing him the confirmation email. We had already booked our equipment for the Torres del Paine W because a friend had suggest another place for us to get everything. The guy at the hostel asked if we wanted to rent anything and we...
