The owners are amazing and very, very friendly. They gave us a lot of information about the place and what to do and really took care of everything.

as a bagpacker no kitchen is a big problem because Chilean restaurants are quite expensive
Very clean hostel!

Very comfortable - I always looked forward to returning after a day’s excursion.
Wifi occasionally spotty.
A bright, airy, spacious room overlooking the hills. A delightful couple - Mitra for breakfast very thoughtfully always managed to seat me with someone English speaking. Good breakfast Chilean style. Meticulously clean. Comfortable bed. No bathroom line-ups. TV great. Ideal location if you want to explore other parts of the island as the long distance buses all stop at the Terminal Municipal, a five minute walk away (except Cruz del Sur, but which you can flag down or request to stop as it goes by) and you can get on the local buses down the street and off at the back of the terminal.

Señora Tita is very ‘caring’ but too much in my opinion It took at least 45 mins to tell us the basics of Ancud Uncomfortable mattress
Close to the bus terminal Clean hostel

Hostal Austral is a very cosy and friendly place. The owners make you feel at home right away.

Lovely stay! Super clean!
A bit of a walk to the city centre
Lovely to have a cheap single room after a long time travelling. Great breakfast, with the owners. Very homely feeling. They gave me a map with an itinerary that covered all to see in Ancud. Really lovely stay.

Comfortable hostel close to bus terminal
Close to the bus terminal but a fair walk to the centre. Minibuses pass close to the hostel, but not frequent on weekend or at night. Breakfast of bread and instant coffee, explained as 'typical'. An hour's explanation of the rules, which are all quite standard.
Clean, light, airy and up to date, with quite a good view. Host provided a walking map, that was interesting and covered the highlights of the city well.

Mirta and Pedro did absolutely everything to make our stay in Ancud even better. They were very warm and helpful.

Controlling lady of the house and poor bed
The lady of the house was very controlling. We felt like we were 2 children who were staying at there grandparents house where nothing was allowed. There was even a list in the room of everything that was not allowed. And we had to show up for breakfast at exactly 9:25, not kidding! I guess she tried to be nice, but we were glad to be leaving after 2 nights. Furthermore the bed was really not good, very soft and we rolled to the middle. Breakfast was ok, but you were asigned a seat and had to ask for another piece of bread.

Left early and would not stay here again. Would not recommend.
The owner should not be in the hostal business. She meant well but was extremely demanding and spent what felt like an hour instructing us about where to place our bags (never on the bed!), what to expect for breakfast (be there only at 9:25! to get a piece of bread!). No soap provided, and towels only upon request. Lots of nearby barking dogs.
A convenient location and a clean room.
