03 February 2013

Liked: Very clean bathroom. Nice breakfast (with fresh shakes).

Disliked: We could hear the people in the other rooms very well. Although the hostel is non-smoking, our room smelled of smoke. People in the room underneath us were smoking in the room. Our room had one double bed and one single bed. The single bed was very weak (we did not dare lying on the bed). The main road passes right in front of the house with a lot of through traffic (and noise). There were long queues at the bath room, especially in the evenings. There is one bathroom per floor and not separate toilet. Laundry service seemed quite expensive.

Disliked: A little tricky to find. Make sure you locate the place *on the map* if you drive or walk to this place. But it is short walk (5-10min) from the city center and very quiet.

Liked: homemade marmelade, if the owner likes you banana shakes for breakfast

Disliked: we didn t get the room we reserved, if you feel welcome depends on if the owner likes you or not, sometimes very noisy from other travelers and the street nearby

Liked: Atendido por su propio dueño, amable y servicial. Tiene 1 estacionamiento y nos permitieron hospedarnos con un perro chico. El desayuno es generoso e incluye un jugo de "vitaminas" hecho al momento. Nos dieron la información turística que necesitabamos. En fin, me volvería hospedar.

Disliked: Hacía frío en la habitación y no había calefacción, es lo único.

Liked: Great place, feels more like a B&B than a hostel. Freshly squeezed juice in the morning. Warm bed spreads and spacious rooms.

Disliked: Could use some heat in the morning and hand soap in the bathroom.

Liked: The hostel is incredibly well-maintained and the it is run by a wonderful and entertaining family. During our stay my sister and I were invited to join in the host's birthday party which he was holding in the backyard where we met his family and friends and tasted delicious Chilean grilled meats. In the morning we were served the best breakfast of our stay in Chile, including freshly made smoothies. The kitchen was also open for our use.

Disliked: Nothing to dislike! It's a short walk away from the main square of town (about five minutes), which helps keep down the street noise at night.

Liked: The staff was friendly. The room was big, light and clean and the bathroom too. The breakfast was GREAT with homemade jams, fresh juices and real colombian coffee. It's a quiet place, so if you want to met people it's not the best place, but absolutely a nice place to stay if you like calm

Disliked: Nothing really
