This is a lodge/refugio, not a luxury accomodation. Values is excellent given there are no other food outlets there. But also, food is plentyful, repeat servings is wanted.
Bar is extremely helpful, will accept dollar payments and return Chilean Pesos, at official rate.
Rooms have bunk beds, can be mixed gender, but are clean and comfortable. Shoes are mostly left outside the room (by guests' initiative), which is helpful in hiking environments.
Warm, cozy log fires are lit in public areas on cold nights.
Reception staff is very friendly, as is kitchen staff.
Common area bathrooms are poorly fitted - not fault of the hotel, but the organization - saving in the wrong place.
Perfect place for meeting fellow hikers/treckers and making new friends.
Next to the landing of the catamaran.
I rated the sleep quality as not 100% because the wind was howling too much!
