Chimanga Hostel in Puerto Varas, Chile

Puerto Varas in Chile is at the border to Patagonia. If you want to visit Chile’s magical south, you have to pass through here. That said, this is already the Northern part of Patagonia. To experience nature, you can easily stay several days in this little, sleepy town on the shore of the Llanquihue Lake. And if you want your stay to be comfortable, you should definitely check out the Chimanga Hostel in Puerto Varas, Chile.

This cozy hostel in the very center of Puerto Varas is managed by a German-Chilean couple. As you will see, this is a common combination in Puerto Varas, which was founded by German settlers and still retains the charme of a little town near a lake in Germany’s black forest.

Everything is very clean, neat and well-organized. You even get your own basket with a nametag for the fridge. The fridge is located inside the big, well-equipped, public kitchen, near the dining room with cable TV.

Even if you don’t want to prepare your own food here, you will want to stop by for the free breakfast every morning. It’s not a poor man’s breakfast, but rather the real deal, with fresh yoghurt, cereals, milk, orange juice, coffee, tea, bread, cheese and slices of sausage.

Chimanga’s Lounge

After revitalizing your spirits with this big breakfast, you should explore Puerto Varas’ big outdoors. At Chimanga’s front desk, you can book all kinds of tours: trekking, horse-riding, kayaking, rafting, canyoning and their specialty- fly-fishing.

When coming to Puerto Varas, you should bring sunshine with you, as in every outdoorsy place. But in case of bad weather, relax in front of the hot stove in Chimanga’s little lounge. If the books, magazines, travel guides and the guitar fail to entertain you, just book a massage in the hostel’s spa.
