Can I book a room? 


After 12 seasons in Patagonia we are getting back to our roots and no longer taking reservations at the hostel.

But reservations can be made if:
• You walk in and make a reservation in person, for that night or a different return date

• You have already previously stayed at erratic rock and are returning from your trek

• You are on a erratic rock trekking program
• You are booking for a group 4 or larger - based on availability

So see you soon & safe travels!


Remember - erratic rock is located next to the most happening

pub in Puerto Natales, so there can be live music on the

weekends and can get loud until very late. ♪♫
