The breakfast is good, with oats and yogurt as well as bread and jam, there is tea and coffee available at all times. The owner and staff are very helpful. The hostel... More

The place is amazing and in the centre of Valdivia. The staff is super friendly and everyone we met there was nice. Rooms are better than your average hostel and they have a focus on recicling and using solar power which is a big plus in my books.

Great staff, rooms, breakfast and location. Very clean and comfortable, you can meet many people in the hostel as there is a friendly environment. One of few hostels that has the definite backpacker feel. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to a friend.

This hostel was a great find! They found space for our group of 8 weary travellers at 10pm and not only did Lucas give us a comprehensive tour of the hostel at this hour, he also recommended a great spot for dinner and beer. Could not fault the cleanliness of this place, the bathrooms were always fresh and the toilet... More

The staff were very friendly on welcome, there is a nice shared area, the garden out the back is a bit run down but rustic. The kitchen is undercover but outside, which is not ideal in inclement or cold weather. I had a room with a private bathroom on the 3rd floor - the bed was comfy, nice new TV,... More

This place should be high on the list for hostel travelers. The breakfasts are lovely, the kitchen is really cool and well stocked, the bathrooms are clean, the reception is very very helpful and the environment is... Environment-friendly!
