I'm not sure of the value of doing a review of our accommodations along The W, since unless you are camping, you really don't have many options. The monopolistic nature of the refugios does seem to contribute to some of the surly staff comments found in other reviews. But, you have to recognize why you are there, how these refugios... More

Initially we were to stay in the hotel next door but this was already closed due to winter shutdown. There wee only multi-bedrooms like in a youth hostel, which was not the problem, but the personnel was so very much unfriendly, not even willing to hand over a key for the rooms (where we had all our photo equipment), they...

First off, we visited Torre Central at the very end of the season (April 2016) which is important for context. It was our first stop on the W trek and in general was a very pleasant stay. The home office had misrecorded our visit one day later than we had booked which led to some early confusion but the staff... More

The Refugio's were great, better than I had expected, the accommodation and bathrooms were good and the meals and packed lunches fine. We had taken sleeping bags but never needed them as the 3 we stayed in all either supplied sheets or sleeping bags, I would suggest a sleeping bag liner. Even if you are not staying in the Refugio's... More

Stayed two nights, food excellent, rooms nice & beds comfy. This is also a really warm comfortable lodge and a great base to explore the walks to the Torres. Only downside was male reception staff are insolent & seemed to resent serving guests.

The Refugio has a nice location with a great view of the Torres. The bunk beds we slept in were very comfortable and the showers were nice and hot and surprisingly clean. After reading a lot of negative reviews on here about the refugios being very dirty I was a bit anxious but the bathrooms were absolutely fine. The food... More

I, like many, did the 5 days W trek of Torres del Paine. Most of my hike, I stayed with Fantastico sur and had no regrets! The accommodations are nice and very clean, I was pleasantly surprised.

Trained and informative staff, used to handling large numbers of non-Spanish speakers; efficient without being overly friendly. No connections available for wifi or even charging your electronics. Have fun!

We stayed one night here in one of the shared bedrooms. Overall a good experience! Friendly staff, good food, more space than other refugios (in the bedrooms and common areas), clean, comfortable, nice atmosphere.
