10.0 Excellent
Pros: A wonderful sanctuary away from town to fully experience the beauty of Chiloe! We enjoyed every bit of our stay—personalized to our likes and interests with the help of the delightful property managers Amalia and Stephanie. The spacious, simple rooms provide a lovely comfortable retreat with beautiful views of the wildlife, wetlands and sunrise. Delicious breakfast fare, wonderful horseback ride through the countryside, ideal for bird watching and hiking along the country roads.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: The breakfast with all organic products and handmade bread. The place is also surrounded by magic and the company was unbeatable.
Cons: The time the hot tub takes to warm up, and the impossibility of doing that activity.
10.0 Excellent

We felt very welcome and very well treated. The location is superb, and the facilities are very comfortable, modern, spacious and clean. I would recommend this place to anyone.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The setting on Pullao Bay is breathtaking! The design of the rooms is amazing. The room was much bigger than I expected with a huge window to take in the extraordinary view. The staff were also great, preparing us delicious breakfasts each morning. We also had dinners made by them. We also did an excursion one day with a boat trip to see penguins, a beach picnic, and a walk in the forest. I only wish I could have stayed longer! The views and sounds of the birds were soothing and magical.
Cons: It was hot while we were there so needed to have the windows open. But the windows don't have screens so there were some mosquitoes. Be aware the road to enter is a bit rough, but we were fine in our small VW rental car.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Our stay at Refugio was a highlight of our trip to Chiloe. Its a very tranquil location yet not very far from Castro and some great restaurants. The room is simple and modern, very comfortable beds and best of all a beautiful view out over the bay. The breakfast was very nice, fresh homemade bread, eggs, fruit, yoghurt and good coffee! A great place for kids ( ours are 6 and 9) to run around outside, and there is a birdwatching area to explore too. No real beach, its very muddy. We went horse riding along the beachfront, horses very calm and lovely ride. Amalia was a great hostess. highly recommend, and we should have stayed longer.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: This may have been one of the best places I have literally ever stayed and I travel a lot. The location was perfect the house is so lovely, it is expertly designed, extremely comfortable and welcoming. I felt like I was at home. The beds were so comfortable and the bathrooms/room clean and just big enough. The breakfast was superb. Best of all Arianne went out of her way to be accommodating, helpful with suggestions for dinner or answering questions about history of the island, etc. I would go again and again if I could. You don't have high enough rankings for me to review.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: This place is amazing!! Our hosts Paula and Guillermo were AMAZING hosts. They greeted us with cheese and crackers and wine and made every part of our trip special and amazing!! We definitely would go back, and we wouldn't stay anywhere else!
9.3 Excellent
Pros: An absolute delight was Arianne the host who checked us in and looked after us. Her English was fantastic, she was warm, friendly and went out of her way to ensure our needs were met and couldn’t do enough for us. She wrote things down for us to help us for ordering in restaurants and the places she recommended for dinner were fantastic and both within walking distance. The setting is a dream overlooking the water, what a view it was! Breakfast was delicious and more than ample with the continental choice and cooked eggs. Glenny who does the cooking and cleaning was also really delightful and ensured we were well looked after. The B&B was very tastefully decorated with the timber design and modern architecture. Absolutely fantastic, we loved it.
Cons: I’m sure this was an oversight but unfortunately our bathroom floor was very dirty when we checked in. It looked like it hadn’t been cleaned after the last people checked out. We found lots of long dark hair, sand, dirt and clumps of dust over the floor and in the corners. We didn’t like to tell Arianne as she was the only one on duty and was busy attending to other guests and so we didn’t want her to come and clean our bathroom floor. Luckily my wife always carries detol wet wipes and so we solved the problem ourselves. There is no parking as such but we were able to find parking on the road.

Pros: Wow the best b&b we ever stayed!! It was amazing. We had the room with the sea view and is was just awesome. So clean and warm and the room is made with a lot of love.

Pros: Excellent communications. We booked late afternoon for midnight arrival of the same day. It was the only accommodation in our budget which offered 24hr checkin after a last minute decision to bus down from Temuco. The bus was over 1 hour late (road closure) but all went smooth. The accommodation was locked but there was someone waiting in a car for us who let us in and showed us to our room. Next morning had a lovely breakfast (best scrambled eggs in a long while!) around the family dining room table and spent an hour practicing our Spanish on other guests. All very clean and organised. We were allowed to store our luggage until the late afternoon. Would return. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Pros: Dining room overlooked lake and was absolutely beautiful. Owners very kind and friendly - had issues with our car and they helped immensely. Rooms were beautiful with comfy beds and an amazing shower
3.3 Mediocre
Pros: Not much ... room was midern
Cons: Dogs up and down the street barking all night. Bathroom was dirty and a thin white film covered the toilet ... probably cleaning powder. Staff was pleasant but not very helpful. The cafe was only for tea, coffee & pastries; not sandwiches or a small meal. Asked for recommendations for a restaurant and I was referred to several fast food places near the mall up the hill. Later on my own I found one ceviche and two seafood restaurants just down the street on Pedro Montt ... including Nuevo Galicia, probably the best restaurant in town. Hotel, if you can call it that just not tuned into tourists.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: This is a very fresh and modern boutique hotel. Its management took care to ensure our stay was enjoyable. Breakfast was quite good.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The bed was excellent and the location perfect
10.0 Excellent
Pros: - great little hotel build with a natural vibe along the sea arm where many fishermen used to live (now it is more and more accommodations and restaurants), but fishermen do still work there - splendid room with lots of light, warmth, beautiful decoration, comfortable bed, everything was so perfect - excellent breakfast (served at the table), excellent cakes and juices served at the cafe during the day - great welcoming staff - our room had a sea view and it was magic to see the birds fly over, plunge into the sea... also great sunrise from our bed - nice restaurants at walking distance for diner - easy to park in the street
Cons: - some questions about payment were not answered easily (we had some issue with our bank before the visit and answers were slow to come and short on details, plus an issue with the final bill but that was solved) - advice on restaurants nearby would have been useful
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Staff very nice and professional.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everyone, particularly Jocelyn and Andres and the women who staffed the tea room, went out of their way to be helpful. Jocelyn spent time with us each day helping us map out a route of things to see. The place was beautifully designed, and the view from our window (room 8) was spectacular - it was a real treat to wake up every morning and look outside. We liked the location - on the edge of town, so less congested, but easy to get into town.
Cons: It would be good if the place could provide bottled water and tissues in each room.

4.3 Okay
Cons: The owner made me pay the taxe, he knew perfectly i wasn't chilean, i should not have paid. When i asked him to refund me the tax,e he refused saying if i paid in dollares i wouldn't have paid the taxe. It's trus it was written in the conditions, but i think he should have reminded me. He didn't give me a official certificate so i never will know if he kept the money of the taxe for him or not. A thing is sure, with the taxe, the place doesn't worth the price!

Pros: Super clean, warm and sunny

8.0 Excellent
Pros: The apartment’s view and facilities’ functionality.
Cons: In “Booking” the private parking was available, I selected it, but when I arrived it wasn’t. So I had to park on the street and my car was scratched during the night. Also, all available bicycles were deflated and in poor condition.
8.3 Excellent

Pros: Nice staff, clean, good bed, good shower. Felt like staying in someone's house
Cons: Unable to use kitchen
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Location, staff, breakfast, very clean and well kept. Good wifi connection.
Cons: Not tax exempt with a foreign credit card - not a problem as such but just letting other travellers know so they can factor it into the overall price.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The homemade bread and cake were so tasty. The position of the house is perfect. The family that live in this hostel are great people with a big heart. The room and the bathroom were clean and the bed was compfy. You can feel yourself at home!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Helpful, friendly hosts. Comfy beds. Good breakfast!
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The host is super friendly. Nice breakfast. Bed and shower is very comfy. Outside is a mirador where you can see the view of palafitos.
Cons: Zero noise isolation. Staying inside the same place of the host family and can hear their kids running, sound from tv, from kitchen and people opening doors upstairs. A bit troublesome to have the staff opening door for me each time
7.5 Good
Pros: The breakfast was good, although no hot food. Breakfast pastry, mixed fruit, coffee, juice, bread, and jam. Private gated parking was nice for peace of mind with my rental.
Cons: I think there is only one shared bathroom on the 2nd story, which isn't quite enough in my opinion. This is clearly a house that they added some additional interior walls to make more "rooms" to maximize earning potential, adding at least another bathroom would have been helpful.
4.3 Okay
Pros: Staff very friendly and accomodating
Cons: No noise isolation. Little to no parking space in the premises or specially outside on the street
6.3 Good
Pros: Location, wifi.
Cons: -You can hear everything from the room - kids running, family having dinner etc. We didn't feel any privacy there. -No common area or any other nice place where you can hang. Only the room which we didn't enjoy staying there. -Breakfast very poor with dry bread from a few days ago. -Foreign guests also have to pay the local tax, unless you have usd cash. If you're looking only for a bed and hot shower in the city center this place is ok. If you plan to hang a bit in the hostel area you probably have much better options in the area.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Amezing and very friedly!!!
9.5 Excellent
Pros: We could not have designed a better stay. It is located at a mirador ( scenic view point ) overlooking The Gamboa palifitos and an easy few minutes walk from the Plaza de Armas, stores and a variety of restaurants and cafes. The facilities were comfortable and spotlessly clean. The staff is always available and constantly working to make your stay “the best.” This is a family owned property and you feel “at home” with fresh baked goods every day - Morning and evening. Your room is freshened and linens and towels changed regularly. Laundry service is available for a reasonable fee and Rodrigo even arranged for our rental car which was delivered and picked up at the property. A treasure on a multi-month adventure.
Cons: This is a popular property and we were concerned that we were not able to book a room with private bath. Everything was fine - the bathrooms were cared for all throughout the day.

9.5 Excellent
Pros: The family that runs the place is more than helpful and super amazing and lovely. The kitchen has everything for cooking and the atmosphere is very familiar.
6.3 Good
Pros: The family, it rather the father, eat nice. Big kitchen. Confortable beds.
Cons: The rooms and the whole house was really cold! The hostel is located outside of the town, accessible only by car or a long walk. The neighbourhood is rather creepy when we arrive and the house is under restructuration. I think it should be mentioned in the description, so that the guest know where they are heading. It didn't seem dangerous at all once there, but the first impression was rather unsettling. The house is all in wood, which means no soundproofing. I had a room next to the living room, the kitchen and the TV, which meant a lot of noise until late in the night and early morning.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Owners are really nice and kind. They took us from the bus station to the hostel much earlier than check in.
Cons: Its good to know that buses dont pass after 8 PM, Hill is not pleasent but its fine, consider such situation when returning back to the hostel
7.5 Good
Pros: The staff was very kind and helpful, nice rooms and kitchen facilities.
Cons: I would probably add another bathroom and credit card payment service.
6.8 Good
Cons: Not friendly. Room prices not posted.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: We had a very quick stay overnight but everything was lovely and clean.. the bed was very comfortable which made for a good nights sleep after a very long day. The owners were also very friendly and kind.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The whole atmosphere was superb. Friendly and helpfull.
Cons: At 81 years old, the location way out of town and uphill was a little too much.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: The living room and kitchen areas are logistically well-planned. Many people entered and left the premises, but the l-shaped space enabled some separation and privacy. Spacious bedroom, large, comfortable bed, and good bathroom. This place's major asset is its owner Alejandro. Although we stayed only one night, he went out of his way to make us feel at home; he even picked us up at the bus station and dropped us off there the next morning.
Cons: The location is a bit far from the center of town.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great position. Very comfortable. Helpful staff. Great view
Cons: No signage to identify the hostal from the street or street number in address. Access via a locked gate which is a problem if you arrive outside estimated arrival time.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The owner comes to pick you up and brings you back to the bus station. Otherwise the location is difficult to reach and not very convenient if it rains. The owners are generally trying to make your stay more comfortable
Cons: The rooms can get very cold at night especially upstairs but the rooms downstairs have no view.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Location is great and it’s very stylish and pretty, being one of the famous palifitos overlooking the estuary.
Cons: Breakfasts appeared a little rationed perhaps!
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Everything
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The kitchen and lounge area were very cosy with a fire always lit and very sociable. Kitchen was well equipped. Room was cleaned every day and every dorm (x4 people) room had their own bathroom which was a lovely surprise compared to most dorms! The staff were super friendly and helpful. If you want to stay in a Palafito we’d really recommend this one!
Cons: We were there in Chile’s Autumn and it was pretty cold in the dorm room (can’t speak for other rooms), but one of the windows didn’t close properly, which made the room as a whole very cold. Blankets were provided and needed!
7.5 Good
Pros: Location and helpful staff.
Cons: Room pretty basic but fine.
6.3 Good
Cons: Breakfast minimal. One member of staff serving un friendly .
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Awesome hostel , so homely and in a beautiful setting . Breakfast is delicious with eggs, bread and fruit - plus drip coffee - a welcome relief after drinking Nescafé. Staff were helpful and friendly plus it’s only a 10-15 minute walk into the plaza / centre . I stayed in the dorm, great shower and comfy beds with lockers - the room is cleaned daily.
Cons: When I got back late I felt so bad ringing to be let in (there’s no curfew) I would suggest looking at a key system of some sorts
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Comfy and clean. The kitchen was perfect. The view from the hostel and the all setting was beautiful.
Cons: The heating doesn't work and apparently it is like that for months. Could get cold in the rooms, extra blankets were provided. The staff lacks tourist information and couldn't be of much help, though they have tried to help to the best of their knowledge. Keep in mind that the hostel is 15 minutes walk from the city center and the bus station and it is a steep climb up hill back to town.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The terrace looking over the river was brilliant. Good breakfast and shared spaces with good facilities throughout the hostel
Cons: Nothing - a great hostel!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Really stylish interior and the view from the Terrazza is amazing. The breakfast is good and diverse. Laundry is pretty affordable.

Pros: The staff gave us good recommendations. Really nice Hostel...too much that I had imagined. Thanks!
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Super nice building very clean and cosy and with loads of character. Beds comfy and good heating. Was great to have a bathroom within the dorm too.
Cons: Paying is such a nightmare! I did receive an email in advance saying that to avoid extra tax you must pay in dollars in cash, but when I came to pay a $75 bill with a $100 note they didn't have change in dollars and refused to give change in pesos. I tried to pay every day for 3 days. In the end I gave up trying and went to the money exchange myself to break the note. I've never encountered this before after 1 month in Chile. So, don't only make sure you bring dollars in cash to pay, but make sure you bring the EXACT amount too. I'd recommend the palafito amends their email to also specify that they can't give change.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Super soft blankets. Spectacular view from our room and delicious breakfast
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Nice setting. Heating and plenty of hot water.
Cons: I gave them laundry at 3pm. They said it would be ready in 24h. When I came to pick it up at 4pm on the following, I found out that the bag of dirty clothes had been sitting under the reception desk for 24h and all I was offered was to wait 24h more, which was not possible since I was checking out on the following morning and I had to wait 2 more days to be able to change socks. Gross!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We loved everything about this hostel it's much more boutique than others we have stayed in. The handwork on almost all the furniture is amazing. Very clean, with great staff - who try to speak English when my Spanish fails. Reommend this hostel/hotel! Views are extra special - wow!
