The rooms were basic. Very clean. Recently refurbished and newly painted. Staff very friendly. Breakfast was fresh warm bread, cheese, marmalade and pastries. Coffee, tea and cereals. Powerful shower. Centre was close with lovely restaurants. Fantastic views of the mountains.

We stayed in this hostel because the other one we preferred was full and they recommend us to stay here. We did and the choice was not that bad. Price is not very low, expect that. Wi-fi works well. Rooms are clean, cosy but small. Service tries to be really helpful but the problem is that they don´t speak proper...

Stayed here with my dad, staff is friendly and nice, but the room is terrible, so close to the reception and main hostel bathroom and not soundproof at all so it was very noisy at night. The rooms are quite small, but that didn't bother us since we just slept here. The rooms are cold (no heater) and wifi barely...

We stayed here for one night as part of a tour group. Don't let the word 'hostel' put you off. This is as nice as any small B&B we have ever stayed in. The rooms are small but adequate and clean. Bathrooms are nice and modernised with a proper bathmat! Breakfast was just a continental breakfast--cereals, yoghurt, cold meat and...

We stayed there for three nights. Breakfast are good and hotel is clean only issue is they haven't given shampoo which was kind of strange! It's at the last corner farthest from bus station but its 5minutes walk to main square.

I stayed here on two different nights with two very different rooms, but having said that the hostel is very good. The first night I stayed I was put in a large double room, the next night was in a small single but both were clean and comfortable. The one thing to note is that in the bathroom they only...

Hotel is a short walk from the center. No elevator but the front desk staff helped me carry my bag upstairs. In general all the staff were very helpful (e.g. one lady kindly stored my leftover pizza from a restaurant in the fridge). Room and bathroom were clean. Both were good sized. Wifi was very slow. Breakfast was just adequate.

This is one of the great hostal that I would come back if I'm happen to be in Puerto Natales. Room is good size, great receptionist, OK breakfast, clean, great WIFI connection, and good size bathroom. Beds are firm and room is warm enough. Would be a 5 stars, but breakfast is very simple. I like it most is that...

I stayed only one night, on my way home from El Calafate. It is comfortable and clean; the owners very helpful in getting me a bus ticket for trip to the airport. Close to main streets and plaza and to beautiful walks along the costanera. I know Puerto Natales, so was happy with the location and convenience of getting around...

Hostal Francis is located just a few blocks off the main plaza and a couple of hundred meters from the water. Perfect location for exploring the small town. Our room was a bit worn and with thin walls, but very big. The staff was very helpful, the breakfast good and overall the hostel had a very cosy and homey feeling....
