We chose 'Airesbuenos' for a variety of reasons including: - sustainable ethos, which they live up to fully; quiet admirable in fact! - reviews! Countless glowing reviews - affordable (better than being in a standard hotel/hostel room, for many reasons) As it turns out, the hostel has a funky, unique vibe but is still warm and welcoming. Staff does everything they can to make you happy & comfortable. Breakfast was 'nice'. In aiming to be perfectly clear - which I try to do on TA - I'd give it a 3.7. All good reasons mentioned above but: - no parking (which would be nearly impossible to do, and they send you about five blocks away to an appropriate/affordable spot) - our room was cramped (sure, that's part of the 'mystique'/style of the place, but it was actually difficult for both of us to move in the room at the same time and one of us had to 'hug the wall' to sleep! This was in a private double) Worth a stay if you're not too picky about these things.

Upon arrival the owner didn't engage with us but abruptly told a very lovely staff member to 'not forget the door code'. We felt like an inconvenience to the owner. Had good advice from other staff and friendly welcomes and good mornings. Be aware the Hostal only takes cash or PayPal. The communal areas are welcoming. The beds and one pillow each were really hard and I absolutely hate paying for a double bed and getting two pushed together singles. The walls are thin and if other guests are loud it's impossible to sleep. The room and bathroom was small but adequate. The breakfast was average;bad coffee, a small but tasty fruit, oats and yoghurt mix, hard bread with butter and jam. Be aware you have to pay for towels if you don't stay 3 or more nights. The water pressure on the shower was very very low. When we saw permaculture we expected permaculture gardens - but their interpretation is more about permaculture culture (water wastage). Our stay was okay but wouldn't stay again unless there were no other reasonably priced options

This is the best example of a good hostel: clean, friendly and everything works. They serve a basic but very nice breakfast with homemade jams and a yoghurt with fruit and granola that is great. The shared kitchen is in the garden and it’s full of everything you need to cook. The atmosphere was great. Highly recommended if you are visiting Valdivia.

It is a clean and picturesque hostel but it is missing the laid-backness of a real hostel. Management is just in for the money with tons of rules, like to leave the property at 11am. Since it is new, this will get worse in the future, promised.

Booked in three nights, stayed for five. Jo, Viela, Sarah, Vincent and the whole staff is wonderful and helpful. Breakfast is simple but tastey, and the hostel is very well stocked and setup. By far one of the best hostels I've stayed at in the past five months of travel and Valdivia is a lovely city.
