Liked: Blue House I is better than most hostels in Punta Arenas... That's not saying much but the accommodation is clean, walking distance to shops/amenities and the staff are friendly. I even got a free, unexpected, shuttle from the bus stop, which was a nice bonus.

Disliked: Breakfast is standard -bread, bread and more bread! No lockers for those wishing to lock up their stuff.

Liked: Claudio, the receptionist is very helpful. He can organize your trips and attractions, and helped with bus tickets and hostels in Puerto Natales, our following destinations.

Disliked: The hostel was somewhat unclean, and the worst part was to take a shower in extremely cold water, especially after coming back from a very cold day in the penguin island.

Liked: very cheap. clean rooms and facilities. even including breakfast

Disliked: Regarding the price, there is nothing to dislike about the hostel. The only thing is the fact that there were many islaeli guests with really bad manners (like leaving the door open while peeing, not cleanig up their own mess)
