Holy shit this place is genius! We haven't come across many free things in Chile, I can say this place has one of the cleanest bathrooms and one of the best roadside showers I've taken! The water was HOT (as in; if you slide the lever all the way to the hot side, you'll get burned). AND AGAIN IT'S FREE!

Also free and decent WiFi and a quiet place to sleep in front of the building in the parking lot.

Enjoy!!

And the bathroom is heated!! I can't get over this place lol

Really nice place for the night ! Tourist Center was closed when we were there (Monday) so we could not use the facilities but we still spent a really good night. There are several power spots available around the building, one was not working but the others were so try another one if you’re unlucky with your first try. There is also a water tap outside, don’t know if it is potable but we used it to refill our tank. We used the petrol station wifi which was working pretty fast until other campers arrived and it got slowlier but still working !

The best place we've stayed on our trip. We just went to see if there was a shower and ended up staying for the night as it is a super safe place, the wi-fi is excellent and there is a power.. energy point available. Excellent for a comfortable night and an early go to the border.

Estava fechado, mas os banheiros estavam abertos e funcionando. Chuveiro quente e banheiros bem limpos. WIFI pela cidade.
Fomos até o prédio ao lado pedir informações sobre o local e a moça da recepção foi muito gentil e nos informou como ficar no camping, ligou para os hostels e perguntou os preços. Queria até ir conosco no local para mostrar o caminho, mas não foi necessário, porque tínhamos o maps offline.
Tivemos que voltar ali, porque houve confusão nas informações e ela mais do que depressa ligou novamente para o hostel.
Muito gentil mesmo.
Bom lugar.

Nous sommes venu pour prendre une douche et finalement nous sommes restés pour dormir comme beaucoup d'autres voyageurs en tente comme en van. Abrité partiellement du vent mais très correct pour la nuit. La douche est gratuite comme les toilettes avec également le wifi gratuit. En ville mais super spot pour avoir tout a disposition.

We came for a shower and ended up sleeping like many other travelers in tents and van. Partly sheltered from the wind but very good for the night. The shower is free like the toilet with also free wifi. In town but great spot to have everything available.

Bathrooms are very clean and for free so if we use them wisely many people will enjoy it. Wifi was free in town and we had the best speed at the tourist center. Right now they are working on the surrounding streets but you can still find a good spot here or there. We just parked our van in front of a roadblock. At 9 they started working again so we had a good night. Also good coverage from te wind. Definitely a good stop!

Best shower of all time! Parking is a little tricky at the moment because of the construction around the building. They are make Ng new parking lot. We parked in front of the bull dozer late at night. No issues. Awoke to friendly workers telling us it was still no problem. Quiet little corner, maybe a handful of cars passed in the night. Open wifi was good for us too.

We stopped here on a saturday. The office was closed (opened monday-friday) but we used the very nice bathroom and free hot showers.

Perfect spot to work on your blog, enjoy a tea and talk to Enrique, the information guru. He knows a lot about nature, animals, trails, streets, everything and can give you all the information that you need for your trip down south and/or up north. He is trilingual (Spanish, English, German) and can provide you with maps and inside information on various spots.
