This is a great refugio. We would highly recommend to anyone going to Cochamo. The hosts are very kind and accommodating. This is a beautiful valley not to be missed by anyone traveling to Chile. Hopefully we will get the chance to go back one day.

I stayed 4 night in this hostel. It’s very nice, charming, cozy and clean place. Hot Water in the Showers is only in the evenings available because they have to heat it with fire. This Hostel is a very nice opportunity if you do not like to camp or don’t want to bring your own tent to the valley. Be...

We had been wanting to hike in Cochamo for three years, but the weather made us cancel our trip the previous two. Other than a rainy day hiking in, the weather held for us. We were happy to arrive at the Refugio after a 5-hour or so hike in through a sometimes sludgy woodland trail. We were joined on the...

There are a number of hikes in to the Andes in this area, but a lot of them are in national parks and the access and facilities can be haphazard. The land and refugio here are privately held (which comes with its own set of problems), so the trail and facilities cater more to higher volume public use. That said,...

It took us 5 hours to hike into the lodge, and it was well worth every step. Be prepared and take it seriously, but it is not a difficult hike. The sun in summer does not set until 10pm, so start early and you'll have plenty of time to take breaks to enjoy the temperate rain forest that you hike...

If you're fit enough to get to the Refugio it will be an unforgettable experience. I'm not sure there's a more picturesque place you can stay with such great accommodations only minutes away from a bunch of incredible hikes. My fiance and I are in our mid 30s traveling for 6 months and so far this has been one of,...

We recently spent two nights here and I can say it sure beats packing in your tent, sleeping bag, stove, etc, etc. Reservations are a must, especially in peak season (Jan, Feb) when the valley if full of climbers. The ladies who staff the Refugio were great and enormously helpful. Their English is quite limited but there are always Spanish...

The Refugio Cochamo is really fabulous and we loved our experience staying in the dorms there. Since you can rent a bed and sleeping bags, you just need to bring clothing and a toothbrush! It’s definitely worth booking in advance since there is limited space, and also worth carrying in a good amount of snacks (and maybe a box of...

La Junta is a privately owned valley that is almost a mirror image of Yosemite with huge granite cliffs towering above it and hence a huge draw for rock climbers. It is accessed only by horsepack(3.5h) or hiking in(5h) and there are 2 hostels and a campground so no lodging over a 2 star rating and don't expect orient express...

Beautiful place to stay 4 hours into a beautiful valley. However keep in mind it is a Refugio. Granted it has window screens (seriously, first place I've seen them in South America, but definitely required up there for the horse flies), comfortable beds, and serves Pizza and delicious vegetarian meals. But they do get their electricity from a water-turbine, so...

“Dorm was fine but I preferred the private room on the far end.”

“Book early if you want a private room.”
 of 5 bubbles Aegir101, 28 Feb 2014 | Read review
“There are are only two double rooms. Part of the dorm is being converted to another double soon. If you want privacy book early although the dorm is well set up with partitions. Breakfast is provided and delicious pizzas can be ordered as well as an evening meal. If you need to save money pack in some lunch stuff and evening tucker but their meals are great.”

“Rooms fill up. We had to change our itinerary slightly for getting availability. Book ahead of time. Careful of the showers. Unlike other barely warm hostels we stayed at, this place has firewood heated tanks, and the water is great yet can burn if not careful.”
