The hostel runs a free talk everyday at 3pm. They also do rentals of equipment, etc. I signed up for a guided trek and turned out way more expensive than other local options. The fact that an American runs it, staffed by individuals who speak good English, probably explains the extra price they charge. I was given a guide who... More

We stayed at Erratic 2 for three reasons. 1) Erratic Rock (and Erratic Rock 2, where we actually stayed) is probably one of the most hyped hostels in the trekking/climbing/Patagonian world - particularly for their free talk about trekking Torres del Paine. 2) The American Alpine Club advertises a 25% discount for card carrying members (we were promised a 10%...

Nice, clean hotel located close to the bus station, a couple of blocks from downtown, the (well-stocked and very affordable) supermarket and the ATMs, and a couple of more blocks from the waterfront. The staff is great! I've had lots of fun chatting with them, and they were as helpful as they were friendly. Rooms are clean and comfy, with... More

Ella was extremely helpful and friendly to us the moment we stepped foot into ER2. She gave us tips for our 'W' trek as well as restaurant recommendations in town. When she heard that the Chilean border was closed due to the labor strike, she even called our bus company to find out the details to make sure we could... More

The hostel itself is fine, the rooms are basic and clean although the walls are paper thin. The staff on the other hand are entirely incompetent and extremely rude. It all started when we arrived at 11pm after a 15hr bus trip and surprisingly were told by 'Ella' that we needed to pay in advance for our room. We were... More

Great place in PN! We stayed for a night before our W hike and 2 nights after. The rooms are clean, it is located close to downtown and the staff are amazing. You wouldn't go wrong staying here. Thanks Erratic Rock for a great stay! P&O

Basic rooms, moderately clean, but helpful and very friendly staff. The price is relatively high for what you get. The location within Puerto natales is ok, a five minute walk from "downtown". we could park our car in front of the hostel.

This hostel was perfect for us. Central heat works great, bathroom is clean, shower works great, breakfast is great, and the common area is cozy with a fireplace, TV, and books. We highly recommend this hostel especially because of the great staff. They are at your beckoning call and give helpful recommendations. The walk to town is very easy for... More

Simple yet cozy and homey. That's what you get when stay at the Erratic Rock 2 in Puerto Natales. Its a bit of a walk from the main part of town but a great pick if you want to get great attention and a quiet rest. We had a great experience organizing our day trip to Torres del Paine. We... More

My friend and I travelled from Canada to trek in Patagonia. Marcela (who runs ER2) went consistently above and beyond what was expected as a hostel operator. She was very welcoming, highly responsive to emails and phone calls, and helped us organize our trip by contacting various refugios in Torres del Paine. In a place where many of the locals... More
