First night before we started hiking the next day was spent at Refugio Torre Central. Nice afternoon enjoying a drink and the view in anticipation of our first day hiking tomorrow. Plenty of outside and inside places to relax with comfortable bunk beds and hot showers. Dinner was good as was the breakfast and the service was great. No where...

The facility is nice and relatively clean(you can only do so much with so many people coming and going). The food was just okay. Service was good. The scenery is unbeatable. There is wifi available for $6 per hour. It is a convenient spot from which to explore the park. The common area with bean bag chairs and a wood...

Friendly staff, comfortable common and private places, shared areas really clean and good food. We chose the full board formula and we've been happy with it. Friendly atmosphere. The prices are much too high but this is the way it is in this park, especially for foreigners...

Had very comfortable and warm beds, great food and stocked bar, they accepted credit cards which was a huge plus, and very friendly service. Given the size of the refugio I was worried it would be a bit chaotic or dirty but it was everything but. Very well-organized shifts for meals and warm.

With how much this place costs for what you get, you would think that they would put some of that money back into it. First of all, the location is great. you can walk out the back and get a great view of los Torres it's on the trailhead for the W/circuit hikes as well. The beds are comfortable but...

The refugio is modern, clean and very confortable even in high season. It is the perfect starting point for the W trail in the park. Reastaurant is good for both breakfast and dinner, personal working there kind and multilanguage (more at the reception than at the restaurant). Suggested to enjoy the park!

We stayed at the Refugio Torre Central (operated by Fantastico Sur) for one night and had a pretty negative experience. The price is exorbitant (USD $86/person), and that gets you nothing but a bed. For everything else - food, towels, water, even internet - they nickel and dime you; none of that is included in the price. The room is...

This refugio is big/crowded but still had a nice feel to it. Great views from the dining space. We were surprised by how good the food was (we are vegetarian/pescatarian). All in all, a great place to start your W hike (the alternative Paine Grande is not even close). The only downside was that the wi-fi was horrible. Don't bother...

Spent one night indoors in November. This was my first refugio and also my favourite. It was definitely the nicest facility of the four I encountered. The common areas were very clean and spacious, with lots of big windows, and there were plenty of places to sit and relax. The bedrooms were a bit crowded, but the bedding was nice...

We stayed at Torre Norte nearby and came here for dinner. Excellent 3 course meal, with the price after a full days of hiking in Torres Del Paine. Great common areas and snack/coffee bar (pricey). Very modern facility in a great setting with beautiful picnic areas. Clean washrooms that you can use even if you're not staying here. You can...
