Ancud is a small town, and Chiloe has this "rustic" feel to it. You will either find the island inspiring and refreshing or unsettling, depending on how used you are to creature comforts.
If you are travelling by bus, the location of Hospedage Austral is a bonus - 1 block from the bus station. The rooms are simple (no TV, not much space around the bed), but super comfy - and the whole place is spotless clean. I also liked the "wood cabin" feeling, and if it is cold in the morning, the wood stove will be on at the breakfast area. After taking a look at several other hospedajes in Ancud, I felt very happy that I chose Austral to stay at.
It is true that if you are used to having a full breakfast - or to having breakfast early in the morning, you should go to one of the bakeries nearby or at the downtown area (La Hormiguita is great).
Mirta and Pedro are very nice hosts. This is their house, and they are obviously taking good care of it and of all guests. Mirta's sightseeing recommendations are really worth taking into account.
