United States


Great location next to the national park for hiking. The town is very safe and is full of tourists, so it feels like a suburban town in the United States. There is a grocery store within walking distance and easy access to tourist activities.

I had a great experience while staying at the hostel, the owners Ivan and Orianne were very welcoming and accommodating. The hostel itself was very cozy, well organized for guests and volunteers. The hours were flexible and the tasks were easy to complete plus I learned many helpful things while working there. There's plenty of time to explore the town along with the National park nearby and I met many wonderful people and bettered my Spanish. I am honored to have helped at this wonderful place! the hostel will always have a special place in my heart. 💛

Ivan and Orianne are amazing hosts. From the beginning they were extremely welcoming and made our stay as pleasant as possible. As I went to photograph, they took me to the most incredible places I've ever been. I hope that they enjoyed the material made and that they make good use of it. I'm sure that in the future I'll come back to Puerto Natales to know more places and for sure find them again.

Agradecida de haber vivido la experiencia en este acogedor hostal. El equipo ha sido increíble y el hostal es comodísimo. Puerto Natales es impresionante y no puedes irte de allí sin ver las Torres del Paine y tomarte un completo del slowly!!!! A pesar de estar tan lejos de nuestras casas sin ninguna duda vosotros habéis sido un hogar en el fin del mundo. Gracias Vane, Cony, Paul, Iván, Ori, Joaquín, Carlos, Fer y Facu … porque de vosotros nos llevamos Bernardo y yo el mejor regalo que nos podíais hacer: La experiencia de haberos conocido!! Os queremos
