Your house in Chiloé island... We are an equipment of work that shares the tastes for the nature, the magic, the respect for the culture and the people of the island of chiloé.

The famous Palafitos de Gamboa waterfront is speckled with traditional houses on stilts called “palafitos”. One of these charming houses is Palafito Hostel, the first Hostel built on a house on stilts, inaugurated on 2008, located just 10 minutes’ walk (800 m.) from the main square. The Antique facade doesn’t prepare you for the absolutely stunning and completely renovated interior. Inside are 8 rooms, private and dormitory, each with private bathrooms and central heating. Two of the double- bed rooms have balconies with spectacular views over the fjord. Asks for our service of dinners!!
