It got a bit hot at night, and a few of the rooms open up to the common area where conversations are loud, but those are really really minor complaints. Nice place.

I loved this hostel! Obviously it's in a palafito, or stilt house, which in and of itself is cool, but it also has beautiful interior architecture and a very cozy feel. The view of the inlet is beautiful! The man who runs the hostel is wonderful and incredibly kind. He really went above and beyond in making us feel comfortable and at home. The hostel is a quick walk from the main section of Castro, but you do have to walk up a pretty steep hill to get there.
Great location on the water. The hostel is built on stilts, which is simply awesome. The service was very friendly. Heads up: after a certain late hour the staff really does not appreciate it if people are talking or hanging out downstairs.
Very loud. You hear every step, sneeze etc. The comforters do not have covers. My room had a big window and no curtain so everyone could see into the room at night. Also you aren't allowed to drink alcohol I'm the hostel. Wouldn't recommend this location.
Cute place on the water, great decorations. Nice kitchen, comfy and clean beds. Not much heating, but warm enough with some long johns. The staff are great, and breakfast was pretty good (homemade bread).
Wasn't a very comfortable atmosphere especially with my friend continually complaining that there were no couches. I also agree that it could be a good investment especially in colder weather and they provide more comfort. A more comfortable environment may promote more social activity. Also, some more tourist information would be great. We left Castro thinking it was pretty bland.
