Beautiful refurbished traditional Chilote house. I went in the off-season, so had the place almost to myself, but was told that in the busy season it can be difficult as you can hear anything and everything going on in the building due to the traditional materials used to build the place. Breakfast was good and staff were friendly and attentive. They have a boat you can use to tour the bay. Overall, a very positive experience!


The biggest plus of this hostel is the amazing location. The hostel is a little far for the center, but to stay in a real palafito overlooking the bay was unforgettable. The building was warm and comfortable, but the walls were thin and transparent sections near the roof let too much light into the rooms. The service wasn't great, and having to make my own bed each day was a bit much to ask with the price. The value is not very good, even with the view.

Really enjoyed our stay at this hostel. The view over the water is fantastic and it was so nice hearing the water (and sometimes rain) from the bed. Lovely dorms with very comfortable beds and lots of blankets! The staff were so helpful and made sure we felt welcome and at home. Also they encouraged us to ask for anything we needed. The breakfast is much better than most hostels, cereal, fresh bread, yogurts and fruit! Plus tea and coffee all day. Great restaurants nearby too.

It was a beautiful place to stay. We got lucky and had a four bed room which had a window on to the sea. I am not sure whether we would have thought it good value had we not had this room. Staff are really nice.Great location in castro :)
