Liked: Wonderful hostel, I believe that the only one in chili that recycles bottles and it has a garden that produces varied types of you, tomatoes, lettuces, maizes, basil, ciboulette, flowers " " sunflowers " ", of everything you can occupy and enjoy a beautiful terrace in the middle of an enormous city, a very clean place attended by 2 boys (does not live through a family as he says a comment) .gerardo and christian do everything for whom your demurrage is perfect! Maps, tips, cards for train,The value is very low for the location and all the comforts that offer you since "hostel" " does not include breakfast, (he says in the page) but you can occupy you, coffee, sugar, cereals, there are small supermarkets closely together like that that alone he buys what I was lacking, and it was very economic! They do not also charge for the towels (but in the page he says that if it is necessary to pay for them, this way that is another wonderful attention of the owners " they do not like to charge for them ") this hostel it has exelentes comments and also it the lonely panet says 1 place!

Liked: Come to this hotel for recommendation, Reserve during one night and I let's still have him three,we sleep in the shared, very wide bedroom of 4 beds, very clean, then change to the private bedroom, which is small and for someone who travels with a rucksack as the normal people it is perfect, it has tv satelital, and in the nights they facilitate a private bath to you, the value is very low, this one in winter season, this way that is normal that it does not have included breakfast, serious to abuse to question it!But it is to occupy at any hour and all the times want: coffee, sugar, sweetener, cereals, grasses in the garden if you want natural you, also they possess basil, rosemary, oregano, cibouette, tomatoes, the maizes were growing this way that we could not eat, they plant sunflowers and other varieties of very beautiful flowers It has an incredible location, a terrace to share with Internet full you illuminate musical sign satelital ESPNHD SONYHD WBHD HBOHD and MOVIECITY! You eat we get bored in the nights, you prop gerardo and christian have a lot of information and tips of the city, concerts free, exelentes bars in vineyard of the sea and valparaiso

Liked: The guys that run the hostel are very friendly, they provide a good overview of the city, highlighting what is good to see and what to avoid. The hostel is small and friendly with a decent sized communal areas located in a great part of town. It's quiet with fast wifi too.

Disliked: I stayed in the only private room, whist the bed was comfortable the room was practically the size of the bed, comfortable though!

Liked: Locatoin is good. Cable TV in the double room.

Disliked: Tiny -In the double there was not enough room to open our 2 backpacks. Because it was so small. Then just with the bags closed there is not enough room for 2 people to stand in the room. The bedspread was dirty and old. Had to go ask for the hot water to be turned on on morning 2. Hot water on day 1 was boiling, then cold, boiling, and repeat. The bathroom that they say can be 'private' at night has paper thin walls and when its not private you can hear every movement in the bathroom of your fellow travellersBreakfast not includedthe only common area inside is shared with the family of the house, so you're interrupting their lounge room if you sit there. Same with the kitchen.Towels not included, pay extra. Pay extra to use the kitchen after check out ($2500 pesos).


The property's response is

This hostel does not live in a family! to never charged for a towel, and not en suite bedrooms, the bathroom is facilitated by attention to the passengers, the hot water works from 7 am until 24 pm, if you shower at 2 am impossible for this system connected as people that normally sleeps, also if you are traveling with 4 backpack is impossible that any space is wide, plus the value of the room, you can not expect that in addition to being with you 30% off breakfast

Liked: The owners, Christian and Gerardo, are incredibly warm and helpful. The property is the cutest thing ever with a small, intimate terrace with an herb garden. It's a small house, so it feels like home. The kitchen is free to use for cooking. The dorms have lockers and the beds are nice and comfy. Most of all, the location is perfect. It's a great place to explore the wonderful city from and it's in the neighborhood with the best restaurants and bars. One of the coolest hostels I have ever stayed at.

Disliked: Absolutely nothing.

Liked: This was the best hostal in which we have ever stayed! The owners, Gerardo and Christian, go above and beyond to make their guests comfortable and welcomed. The place has a great vibe and laid back but meticulously clean atmosphere. We met other really cool travelers there as well while relaxing in the front courtyard. Gerardo even let me use fresh herbs from his garden the night I cooked dinner! Felt more like visiting long lost friends than staying in a hostel!Amazing location as well! Enjoy!

Disliked: Loved everything!
