We stayed in the dorms at Refugio Torre Norte (right next to the central and run by the same people) and it was perfect. The rooms and facilities were good quality and provided a great sleep before we got up and started our hike - you walk straight from the hostel to start the walk. The price was fairly expensive...

This was one of the nicest Refugio's of the W trek, the food was great and they have a bar/restaurant there you can buy food if you don't buy the dinner. But order early because they run out of food, they were out of potatoes the day we were there. The beds were very comfortable and the showers had lots...

What you can expect... This is an incredible area of the magnificent, Torres del Paine National Park, and there are not a lot of lodging options in this area. We stayed at the 'Refugio Torre Norte', because we didn't have another option. We paid $144 USD, for 2 people ($72 USD each), overnight. Your $72 will get you 1 overnight...

This is a refugio like a hostel. bare minimum. Awesome location and very clean. We loved it for our purposes of trekking the o circuit. Food is not the best but ok. Lots of white bread. Wish the espresso bar was open earlier in the morning.

Torres del Paine is an amazing national park however it is not well run so you will have to accept long queues and unhelpful staff. Here are a few tips to help you avoid some of the unpleasantness we had to endure. If there are at least 3 of you rent a car to take you to the park it...

Loved the welcome drink.The breakfast was ok, eggs, bread and cheese, juice and tea/coffee. Dinner was soup-main meal-dessert. Soup was not good at all pumpkin soup,...

I stayed in the camp site next to this Refugio for 2 nights, we were a group of 17 military so are used to things being tough. However, to say the refugio was disorganised chaos would be compliment. We had booked an evening meal for our last night, but had to change by one day, which was difficult at best,...

I had two nights of accommodation at the smaller refugio called Torre Norte which is just behind the Torre Central building. Torre Central is where they have their kitchen, restaurant, and main facility, and is larger than Torre Norte, I was happy though to have my room in Torre Norte since it is smaller, cozier, and less crowded and noisy,...
