My husband and I stayed here for 3 days. We paid 27,000 per night and had hoped for a little something extra for our money. We felt like we were being squeezed for every extra penny they could get out of us. -Very noisy: the second night there was a party downstairs untill 1.30 am that the staff were involved...

The hostel has comfortable rooms and plenty of charm. But to me there are many drawbacks. Long waits for the bathrooms, faulty lockers (mine had a huge gap at the back!), useless garden (serves as a parking lot/campground), expensive extras (examples: almost 1.5 euros for real coffee at breakfast; 10 euros for a load of laundry), faulty information (I was...

Compass del Sur is up on a hill (close to centre of town) so it can be a trek if your luggage/backpack is heavy. You can either walk up a set of steps or walk up the inclined roadway. I came from Chiloe through Puerto Montt with Cruz del Sur bus and got dropped off at the edge of town...

Ok, so to start with, this IS generally a reasonable hostel in an old interesting building. Communal areas nice and clean. Breakfast small portion and basic. Unfortunately our experience as marred by the general rip off attitude of the management: - Despite being members of the Ho.La hostel network we were told that not all Ho.La hostels offer a discount...

I arrived in puerto Varas with the idea of staying 2 days and ended up staying 6. Partly because the weather was not very good when I arrived but mainly due to the fact that Compass del Sur was such a nice hostel. The dorm is big and the bed is extremely comfortable, the breakfast is free and very good,...

This is an excellent choice, but book in advance. It is spacious, has lots of communal space and the rooms are large and clean. It has a certain charm, the chill out area was very comfortable and there are fires lit and the kitchen is well equiped and large. The breakfasts were basic however. Would recommend this!

We stayed here for two nights in May, being low season we where almost alone and had the kitchen and bathrooms to ourselves. We liked everything about this place: - most important: heating!! Anyone who has been travelling in Chile in winter knows that the houses are very chilly usually. The common areas where very nice and warm and the...

We stayed here for three nights. The staff were wonderful and helpful. The hostal is very central but the lack of enough bathrooms and their conditon was very disappointing. Due to the age of the building there needs to be considerable upgrading. However cleaning was excellent I was in a dorm room where my locker was broken and unable to...

Compass del Sur has a sweet owner from Sweden who speaks great English, and her husband is from Valdivia nearby. The front desk staff is extremely nice and gave us very clear instructions on where everything is upon arrival. There are two community computers and good free wifi throughout the lovely, old house with solid wood floors.. The bathrooms are...
