The refuges in Torres del Paine National Park offer economical accommodation for walkers with simple dormitories, a sociable atmosphere and dramatic mountain views.

The refugios (refuges) providing economical accommodation in Torres del Paine are not quite as basic as their name might suggest.  Formerly they consisted of virtually unfurnished wooden sheds without facilities. Nowadays you have a choice of several  cosy refuges which are modern, bright, wooden structures with corrugated iron roofs, cooking facilities or simple restaurant, hot showers and toilet facilities, all heated by wooden stoves.  Yes, you sleep in bunk beds in mixed-sex dormitories accommodating up to 8 people, but there is usually a communal lounge where you can relax, chat and read before you go to bed.

Refugios offer beds made up with sheets and blankets or sleeping bag ; alternatively you can use your own sleeping bag.

The Paine refuge is one grade up, with a bar, souvenir and supplies shop and a couple of computers with internet access.

The refugios are all in stunning locations, with mountain views from their large windows and walks and trails from the front door.
