5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

The place was good, nice staff, and very clean. The beds were comfortable and the rooms got enough space. The breakfast was OK, not bad nor good. The location was the best, inside the cerro Alegre, near all the main attractions. Recommended

This was my worst hostel experience ever! Staff incredibly rude. They made a mistake with their booking system and treated me as if it was my fault! Francisco snapped at me and wasn't apologetic for the inconveniences at all. Wouldn't recommend anybody to stay there ever if you can avoid it!

Booked well in advance of New Year to ensure a reservation at this busy time of the year only for them to cancel our booking shortly before the date citing a system error and that we'd been given the wrong price. Instead of approaching us sympathetically or presenting us with an alternative, they forced us to cancel our booking. A... More

Nothing was too much trouble. We stayed an extra night, simply because of Ana's hospitality. .Our room was small and compact but clean. Breakfast was good and the... More

This is a great hostel. I poked my head into many hostels in Cerro Concepcion and Cerro Alegre, and this is the best one I found. Super clean rooms, friendly staff, terrace with a great view. Not as crowded and chaotic as some other hostels you will find in this neighborhood. Fruit stand next door and best empanandas in town... More

I turned up at Acuarela without a booking quite late at night. The guys on reception were so friendly and led me to my dorm, which was clean, well laid out with nice hot showers. The breakfast was one of the best I've had in Chile. Brown bread, jams, fruit, yogurt and muesli. But my favourite thing was that there's... More

Really good value here: the place is really beautiful, clean and with a nice kitchen. The breakfast was included and tasty. The place got a nice terrasse with an amazing view on the pacific ocean. I just had some trouble with the shower which is really not practical in the dorm.

Our room could of done with a vacuum but otherwise it is clean. If you're not into shared bathrooms then this is not the place for you, in saying that the... More
