  • Description


    We are a family of 3 and we have 2 dogs and run a small hostel in the andes of Chile, 9° region, at 8 hours from Santiago. Our place doesnt have 24 hours electricity; we have solar panels and a generator that works on the evenings and sometimes in the morning.
    Most of our clients come here for trekking, skiing and discover the beautifull nature of this preserved area named Reserva Nacional Malalcahuello- Nalcas. We live very near to the Volcano Lonquimay and we love spending time outside during the summer and we love snowboarding in winter.
    We are owner run and operated and pride ourselves on being social, creative, professional and fun.
