Very helpful and friendly staff. Answered all our questions and arranged a rental car for us. Great kitchen with ample cooking vessels and tools. The whole hostel was clean. Would definitely stay here again.


Helpful staf that go out of their way to help you plan your stay, find place for you if the hostel is overbooked (which happens often because of the popularity) and is there for a chat about this and that. Good common space though the garden is used mainly for tents. Nice beds and great breakfast with freshly made scrambled eggs and a variety of options (which you have to pay extra for) but the basic breakfast is good enough already.


Really enjoyed my stay here. The dorms were very comfortable and I loved the reading lights by your bed.. The breakfast was good too. Above all the owner and staff were so friendly . The atmosphere was very homely with the owners children playing happily in the lounge.


Great hostel, very clean, comfortable beds and large bathrooms. Highly recommend


We would absolutely stay here again!! We had a great experience and the private bedroom and bathroom exceeded our expectations.

Great location and very helpfull staff. The bathrooms needed some work, but that was not a big deal. The low point was the ambiance - extremely noisy, because walls are very thin and every floorboard creaks.


Very convenient to lake and buses, rooms bright and clean, bathrooms need an upgrade - showers should have doors not curtains since they flood if someone doesn't pull it inside. Downstairs dark, big kitchen but no common spices, etc. Camping is still expensive, and you don't get a key if you do...get hostel bed instead, better bathrooms and better treatment. Staff helpful but one woman came to me while I was actually eating dinner with fork in hand to whisper to me to pay?she's there til 12!


In fact the hostel is very good: nice showers, nice bedrooms, and everything clean.


Camas buenos, todo la casa era linda y limpio. El ambiente no me he gustado. Creo que es bien por familias o parejas. Pero para encontrar gente jovenes no estaba bien... Pero quiza solo las 2 noches quando estaba aca... no se... In general a good Hostel. But the atmosphere wasn't suitable for a solo-traveler like me, it may suit more families and couples. Thanks anyway.


Fabulous hostel!! Though, bring ear plugs as the wooden floors are very squeaky.


The only thing I didn't like was that it was a hot night and yet there was no top sheet, only a duvet which was too hot to have covering you on a warm December night.

Walls very thin and every floorboard creaks therefore not easy to sleep.


There is nothing to complain about in this hostel, but nothing really exciting neither. The staff is friendly but reserved. The highly appreciated "real" coffee costs extra. There was no really backpacker athmosphere.


Had a really enjoyable time here, the hostel is really friendly and clean, great breakfast and the staff are very helpful. Another home away from home, really comfortable beds.


The hostal is in need of work. Walls are coming apart and facilities are not that good. Breakfast is poor compared to most hostals we have stayed in and you have to purchase things like juice and eggs. Some staff, women, are friendly but one guy working there was pushy and rude.


Nice place with a well-equipped kitchen, large lockers and friendly staff. Also, it's a nice breakfast and the extras (porridge, eggs etc.) that you can buy are filling and cheap.


so nice stay! friendly staff, close to the city, good advices concerning trips and adventures. thanks a lot!


Fantastically helpful staff, beautifully big kitchen with heaps of new utensils!! very clean and well maintained, owner is amazing he even picked me up from the airport in Puerto Montt and drove me to the hostel and gave a detailed layout of the surrounding areas and their happenings, location is on a hill above the main square but despite the painful climb up the stairs after a long day of hiking it is very worthwhile to be in a nice neighborhood
