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


Very nice place, enough sockets in the rooms, no problem with the Wifi, big lockers, polite personnel


My friend and I enjoyed the whole time we stayed in Compass del Sur. We stayed for a total of 5 nights and it was so sad to leave. We were feeling better than at home! Maria Jose (front desk) was so helpful and smiling! She was awesome! We've been to a hundred different hostels and will rate this as our number one. Breakfast was delicious, convenient, enough and carefully made. It was our favourite time of day. We will definitely come back to Compass del Sur very soon.
