About us

Katja and JensIn December 2001 we bought an old and worn-down property colonial style in the center of La Serena to make our dream come true.

Our goal was to create an international meeting point for people from all over the world who love to travel and who are looking for a place where they can exchange thoughts and ideas with fellow travellers and relax as well.

The Hostel El Punto” was born.
With lots of dedication and hard work we renovated this house and changed it into a cozy, colorful and modern hostel. In August 2002 we could already welcome our first guests.

The positive feedback from our recent guests has shown us that the combination of creative ideas and our hospitality is appreciated by our Chilean and international guests as well.

The central location of the Hostel is perfect. And more, we want everyone of our guest to feel at home.

We are happy to welcome you!
