“I found home in Chile”
Reviewed April 23, 2010

Wonderful! Spacious bedroom, dining & living room, great kitchen that I cooked. This old house with German architecture is warmth, cozy and comfy to stay. This is a must for solo traveler. The living room is always with the nice music. The people is so friendly that you will not feel like away from home.

When we have arrived in the morning from the Navimag ferry, our rooms were not available yet. But it was no problem, because the staff has given us in this time very well Informationes about excursions and Activitis.
Directly in the afternoon they organized spontaneouslya half day tour to the volcano Osorno. The guide Mauricio was really great and he knew all about the area.
The rooms were really clean and also if the house is really already very old, you can feel like your home.Actually, we wanted to remain only one night in the Compass del Sur, however, we felt so good that we have remained 4 nights.
The staff was really the best and most professional on our trip in Chile.

For all people who will go to Puerto varas. Goes to the Compass del Sur.
Best regards for Maria and Jacqueline. And the Tour Guide Mauricio.

There are not enough great things to say about this hostal. The city of Puerto Varas is incredible and this hotal provides the ideal place to complete the experience. The beds were amazing! The beds were heavenly (so soft and clean), the rooms were spacious and clean, and the bathrooms are equally as well equipped. Hot water 24 hours and the management staff is more than accommodating. A free breakfast is served every morning, and I must say, the bread and jam are delicious!! Overall, this hostal was truly a great place.

Our stay at Puerto Varas was one of the highlights of our trip to Chile, and we were very happy that we chose to stay at the Compass del Sur. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The bathrooms were fine and sharing them with the other guests was rarely a problem. They had a great kitchen that was fully stocked so well that many guests were able to cook up seemingly awesome, detailed meals. This is a hostel, so as you might not have a stay described as "luxiourous", what you will have is the opportunity to meet some great, friendly people from all over the world anxious to share stories about their trips through southern Patagonia and the Lakes District. The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly and gave great recommendations as to which excursions we should do (we went canyoning and it was awesome!).

For people traveling on a budget, looking for adventure and/or hoping to meet great people - we highly recommend the Compass del Sur!

Very close to the main area in Puerto varas (which is not much anyway). Nice charming place, got a very comfy feeling. The staff are nice and friendly, but try to sell you their expensive tours, all of which you can do at your own pace at a fraction of the cost, which was a downside for me.
But the rooms are nice and the bathrooms are spotless all the time. The breakfast was quite a spread.

We arrived in Puerto Varas on a very rainy day in December. The hostel was easy to find and had plenty of free parking behind the building. The building itself seems to be a quaint old house and has very clean and spacious rooms. There is free wifi available in the whole property which is also a plus.

We had a shared bathroom which was fairly clean, but not perfect.

The staff is great and are able to offer help with tours or any other information. The woman that makes the breakfast in the morning is very kind and always makes sure you have enough. We needed to talk to someone at home, and they let us receive a call at the front desk and talk for about an hour.

The kitchen was great and was very very well stocked (probably the best of the trip). We stayed just before Christmas and I was able to make some more elaborate meals so that it could feel a little like home. I was very happy to see this.

There is a great common room that is stocked with games and a good book exchange.

The only downsides for me would be the shared bathrooms need a little sprucing up, and there is a 15 minute walk into town if that is a problem for you (wasn't for us).
