Unsure of what to expect on our first full day in Chile, we arrived in Punta Arenas glad to find that our accommodation was just what it promised online–a quiet atmosphere with the best view of the Magellan Strait right outside our bedroom window.

We had pre-booked Patagonia B&B on hostelworld.com after all the listings on booking.com looked pretty run down for a high price. Judging by the pictures, Patagonia B&B looked new and well-kept, and it proved to live up to our expectations.

Private Room:

Our private room was wonderful with its main highlight being the large windows looking over Punta Arenas and the Magellan Strait. The room came with a TV, desk and closet space, towels and toiletries, and a radiator. The free WiFi worked great in our bedroom. We also had a private bathroom that was spacious and clean.

Amenities:

Patagonia B&B has the best complimentary breakfast in Punta Arenas. Breakfast included yogurts, three different kinds of cereal including chocolate cereal, four different freshly made juices (peach, pineapple, orange, apple), toasts, a variety of meats and cheese, coffee and tea, and fresh fruit. The juices were our favorite part of the breakfast.

Pricing:

We paid $40/night for the double room with a private bathroom. This cost seemed comparable to other budget hostels in town, but Patagonia B&B seemed to give a better quality for the price.

Location:

Patagonia B&B has such a great view because it is higher up than most of the town. This is great for aesthetics, but for those who hate to walk, it may be a nuisance to walk up and down the 4 blocks to get to the main square. It wasn’t a problem for us except for the day we checked out when they were having issues swiping my debit card to pay for the room. So I had to run four blocks to an ATM and then run all the way back to the B&B, quickly pay with cash, and then run all the way back down with my heavy backpack to barely catch the bus I needed.
