We are a family group of 4, of them, 2 are a mixed couple, Chilean-Swedish that we run for 20 years our hostel & agency in Pto Varas.
Inspired by our own trips as backpackers, our life in Europe we started our hostel thinking basically about staying in a cosmopolitan environment, and contact with travelers from everywhere, helping them find the places and activities that most interest them in a clear and transparent way .
From there comes even the idea of our name "Compass" in the sense of orientation we provide.
