TravelPod Member ReviewsHostal Oro Fueguino Punta Arenas
This accommodation occupies a middle ground between a hostel and a hotel where you have more privacy than a hostel, but a small 13 room location means that you have the opportunity to interact with other people staying at the location. The overall price reflects said middle ground as one will spend more to stay here than at a hostel, but less than at an average hotel.
The rooms had simple, but functional furnishings that gave them a very homestyle feel as opposed to a staid hotel feel. Both doubles and a few triples were available. Each room had its own bathroom and shower which accorded some of the privacy mentioned above.
A continental breakfast is included in the rate. Also had a computer (older) with internet access available for guests.
The Hostal Oro Fueguino is in an excellent location on a dead end road below the mirador that overlooks the downtown area. So it's a little more quiet (although you still have to deal with the stray dogs barking), but still close enough to walk to the downtown areas.

... we have disembarked we start walking down the hill as this is very hilly. We were told how to walk on the snow and ice as the hills were icy. This place is large and we walked to the Russian Pavillion to be divided into 3 groups. Our group then went inside the Russian pavillion before we started to tour the Chilean part of the base. The main road divides the two camps. The Chilean base consiste of a school, a bank, church, a PX for souveniers (Eric got a hat with ...
- Days 3-5 of sailing: So what have we been up to? Woke up at 4 in the morning on Wednesday, could hear a harmonic sound rushing by the boat. Staggered to look out the window only to be met by a 1000 foot cliff face about 500ft from the boat. We were sailing through the Chilean fjords of Southern Patagonia. Quite the view. At 7:00 the dulcet tones of the boats port advisor Joe from Buenos Aires alerted us to the fact that we ...
... nesting pairs and the rest are either this years babies ( they have the fluffy feathers in the pictures) or juveniles. They made me smile to watched them clean their nests and each other, sun bathe at the opening to their nests, or head to the beach for a swim or bite to eat. Really, it is serious business for them ...
... a view over the water. The restaurant, though, it seems has gone downhill since last year. I prefer the one at the Dreams Hotel, the other place I stayed which is a glass monstrosity on the water’s edge that is totally out of character with the rest of buildings in Punta Arenas. There are many other restaurants around town I like – too many to mention – but a lot of choices everywhere.
So now I wait for Thursday ...
... off point before Ushuaia. The journey took only about 5 hours by Bus Sur, not the most comfortable relaxing journey as I sat next to a guy who had a small child that would not sit still and kept fidgeting. My headphones were on the whole way! Punta Arenas is actually bigger than expected, not very pretty but the biggest town we had been in for some time. We walked the 30 mins to the hostel which was basic to say the least. It was not the nicest place we had stayed ...
