Compass del Sur: Compass del Sur (Compass of the South)

I spent two nights at this guest house, a converted a traditional house. There are dorms and private rooms available with shared bathroom facilities. Breakfast is included and there is a kitchen available for self catering.

The friendly and knowledgeable staff can organise days tours locally and beyond such as the ferry journey down to Southern Patagonia or the Lakes Crossing into Argentina. There is also free internet access and you can also relax in the lounge areas..

This is a hostel I highly recommend for anyone visiting Puerto Varas. It's a short walk to the centre of the town and the lake.

Compass del Sur: Lovely, well priced hostel

We had a twin room here which had two double beds, which were very comfy! It was like a log cabin and was kept lovely and warm by wood burning stoves giving a lovely smell to the place. There is free internet access in the lounge (though only one computer). Breakfast is included (toast and eggs). The people in reception are really helpful and there is space for drying your clothes on the landing.

The cosy atmosphere- the comon room encouraged socialising!

Hotel El Bosque: Vistas al Lago / Lake views

Da. Ana nos trató estupendamente y nos ayudó a organizar nuestras visitas
El hotel está en la parte alta de una colina , en el centro y desde su terraza se puede ver Puerto varas y el lago
Las habitaciones son cómodas , te pueden poner una calefacción si tienes frío y el desayuno es bueno ( probamos la mermelada de calafate)
Mrs Ana gave us a very good treatment and she helped us to arrange our visits
The hotel is in the top of a hill , in the village center , and from the terrace you may see PuertoVaras and the lake
Rooms are comfortable , they may put you a heater if you need and the breakfast is good ( we had "calafate" jam )

Compass Del Sur

Compass Del Sur was a delightful place and one of the best backpackers I've stayed in around the world let alone in South America. The service was great, the breakfast was ok, the rooms where exceptional and very romantic, and the location only a 5 minute walk to the centre of Puerto Varas made this a such a great to find after the walk up from the bus.

The hosts where fluent in many languages and knew all the answers. They also have a free internet computer.

Ellenhaus: Really nice hospedaje - Vraiment sympa

Very nice and clean rooms - Kitchen, laundry, T VCable... and a ping-pong table (Chileans are unbeatable !).

Vraiment grandes, les chambres de cet Hospedaje. Propres egalement. Cuisine, laverie, TV Cable... et un table de ping-pong (les Chiliens sont redoutables !).

Owner very friendly, though seeming not to have so many information to give.
Price : around 4500 per person per day (6.5 USD).

Proprio tres sympa, meme si on a l'impression qu'elle a pas grand chose a dire.
Prix . autour de 4500 pesos par personne par jour (6.5 USD).
