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.

This hostel has definitely been one of my favorites in Chile! The staff was super nice and gave us great tips about what to do and where to go for food and drinks! Other than that the hostel was very clean, had really good showers, nice rooms, a lovely kitchen, good breakfast and a beautiful garden with a cute duck....

We paid 24000 CLP/night for two bunks in a 6-bed dorm. You can contact hostel directly to avoid extra fees from booking sites. The subsequent days will be less expensive. PROS - Clean bathrooms, very comfortable beds, spacious rooms with plenty of storage - Delicious yogurt & granola, and fresh bread for breakfast - Wonderful, friendly, English-speaking staff and owner...

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...

This hostel is a gem. All rooms are clean, there's enough bathrooms and the kitchen ok. There are huge boxes under the bed as lockers (perfect for a large backpack). The staff was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable of Valdivia. Wifi ist fast and stable and the shower has hot water (during the day). The common-room is great for meeting people...
