Budget travelers take heart: youâ€™ll be challenged to walk more than a few steps anywhere in Castro without seeing signs for a â€śhostalâ€ť or â€śhospedaje.â€ť Even at the very low end, Castro hostels within walking distance of the main plaza can be snagged for $10. In Castro, hostels come standard with warm, comfortable beds and hot showers.
Thereâ€™s also a solid array of mid- and high-range options, though be sure to shop around, as quality can vary widely in Castro. Guest house accommodations are also available. As in the rest of ChiloĂ©, prices can climb 15 percent during the high season, but rates are often negotiable other times of the year.
