This hotel in quietly positioned across the water from the main town of Castro but within 15 mins walking. And we were very pleased to be out of the centre in something a bit quieter. The wood construction sitting on on stilts above the water is very picturesque. We had a double room at the rear looking out across the... More

Very nice hotel, nicely decorated rooms with enough space. The view of the room, overlooking the bay was superb! There is also a bar with very good sandwiches (bar has limited opening hours though) and at breakfast there is a lot of choice, and the breakfast is prepared for you on the spot. We had a terrible problem with Alamo... More

It is a bit difficult to rate this hostel. First for the positive: The interior is beautiful, tastefully decorated, subdued natural tones, great bed and a good shower. It really is a nice building. We spent the first night in one of their rooms facing the water and it was very nice. You actually have a very nice view over... More

We like finding out of the way locations and this palafito overlooking the bay, away from the center of town, was perfect. The all natural wood decor throughout the hotel is beautiful, and is complemented by the art and tapestries. There are three spacious floors with lots of common areas and the interior windows provide unexpectedly pleasant views. The efficient... More

What a charming and friendly little hotel. Light, airy and inviting. Great views. Great local art. Comfy bed. Yummy breakfast. Offering to light the fireplace to get rid of the chill of a damp day would have made everything perfect.

As budget travelers, this hotel is a little out of our budget, but we decided to book it anyway. I am really glad that we did. This place is awesome. The decoration and design is comparable to some of the hotels in Castro that is going for USD 200-300 a night, however, we are only paying a fraction of that... More

Palafitos 1326 is a very nice place. It is on the edge of town (across the bridge), about a 15 minute walk (much of it uphill) into town. The staff are extremely nice and helpful. I had reserved the wrong date, but they were able to accommodate us without any problem. Our room overlooked the bay and was light and... More

We stayed at the boutique Hostel Palafito 1326 in Castro for one night whilst on route to Puerto Montt. The fee was $78000 Chilean Pesos (approximately AUD$155 or GBP£78) per night including breakfast and Internet access via WiFi. No on-site parking and television was available during our stay. Our room contained a large double and single bed. The adjoining en-suite... More

This place is so special, is a stilt house so you will be relax listen to the sea and watching the tides. The hotel is clean, comfortably and well decor. The breakfast is good too. Excellent and friendly service.

First impression: clean, modern, spacious, well equipped and ideal for travel weary travellers in a great location. Lovely decor - a mix of traditional features and mod cons. Good wifi. Handy clean kitchen and lounge. 10mins walk from town centre but by a lake. Only con.... no TV :(
