I have been to Erratic Hostel on thanks giving day. Couldn't be better. Amazing dinner with everybody cooking together.. a family atmosphere. They have everything you need for W circuit on Torres del Paine. Their no booking system is amazing. Just the truly backpackers stay there. Be sure to arrive in the morning to get a place there. The owners...

We spent there two nights, they offer different types of accommodation, shared room or private, although you have to make the reservation there as they don't allow you to book online or by phone. Breakfast is very good, they have free wifi, a computer and a whole bunch of movies and Netflix to watch.

If you're in Puerto Natales to hike the W Circuit, you must stay at Erratic Rock. This is a super clean, super cozy, super comfortable and well-outfitted hostel. The breakfast is hand down the best hostel breakfast I've had - and I've been traveling in South America and staying in hostels in South America for the last 9 months. Breakfast...

I stayed here during the start of the quiet season in Patagonia. The staff are really friendly and approachable and willing to help with whatever you need. The free breakfast in the morning is great and has a good variety of food, including fresh bread and a freshly cooked omelette. The location of the hostel is good, not quite on...

Very hard to get, had to stay somewhere else and put myself on a waiting list. Thankfully managed to beat everyone else to it the next day. You do not have to stay there to listen to their ultra informative talks but you get alot more by chatting with the staff thru the night. Also very comfortable everything, especially after...

We didnt stay in the hostel but went to the 3pm talk which was not only helpful for our trek but also helps to educate visitors on ethical and environmentally friendly preperation and trekking. They also have a free items basket which is great for items like garbage bags as they get reused. We also hired our equipment there and...

The hostel is currently taking bookings in person only, so we missed out, but this info session (run by the same ppl that run the hostel) is essential for local knowledge of everything from bus/ferry logistics, to local weather/trail knowledge. If you are going to camp and cook give yourself more than just 1 afternoon after this session to write...

We have had such a blast getting to know this crew. REALLY IMPORTANT free 3pm talk given about the trek and what to expect/you need. Must do if you are doing the walk. If you want to climb or get to know the area, these guys know what's up. Clean rooms and kitchen, fun can-do attitude all around. BASE CAMP...

We stayed here for one night either side of visiting Torres del Paine. The staff (both in the hostel and the bar next door) were really friendly and helpful. And send you off to the park with a good breakfast! Chilled out place to stay, comfortable beds and two cute pet cats. Get there in time for the briefing about...

“Avoid the mini double unless travelling alone. There is also a dorm room nicknamed 'the cave' which is a cupboard next to the kitchen... We didn't stay there but it looked terrible. The other dorm rooms were very pleasant.”
