Top choice guest house in Valdivia
Image by

Valdivia's best hostel is run by a friendly northern Californian who has turned this long-standing traveler mainstay into one of Sur Chico's most ecofriendly sleeps. Solar-heated showers, rainwater catchment, permaculture, vertical gardens, compost, Egyptian bamboo towels – it's all here. Besides the sustainability, you'll find comfy, colorful dorm rooms and simple, well-done private rooms that are a little on the small side.

Breakfast boasts real coffee and house-made muesli. It's a five-minute walk to the river and bus station. You may be charged a small fee for dawdling too long after checkout.
