I went to the Hostel in August so I found it really cold (not their fault of course but something to be aware of when visiting in winter). The staff was really nice though and explained us where to go in Vina and Valparaiso. It looked much better in the pictures but overall I think I'd go again if I... More

Do not stay here... unless you want to suffer from being eaten alive by bed bugs. obviously they have an issue here given the previous comment by another traveller. I really regret not having read the reviews here before chosing to stay with them. the staff need to do more about eliminating this issue of bed bugs. Clearly they are... More

Enough said really. I saw them crawling around on the bunk above me at night, then had the tell-tale bites on me the next day etc. I've been bitten by them before, definitely know it when I see it. Other cons: only three bathrooms for the large dorms that don't have their own. Not enough really for the amount of... More

Hello friend. Concerning your comments, we're taking all the measures possible con control the bugs issue. As you well mention you've seen them before and probably are very aware that this is a problem present worldwide. As for the crazy guests and the noise, we work with grown-up people and expect them to behave like that. Unfortunately, it doesn't always... More

The location is very good, although it can be a bit hard to get there if you are not familiar with the bus system. The place is beautiful and the rooms are very nice, with big lockers where you can fit your suitcase and backpack. The staff is very helpful and the breakfast is very good. One of the best... More

I came to this place based on reviews from this site and others, what i actually saw was the exact opposite. The 12 dorm room is barely big enough to to fit 6 beds in a normal hostel dorm. The first half of the room is so small that the unfortunate person sleeping in the last bed near the wall... More

Our stay here couldn't have been better. The staff was fabulous and provided us with awesome advice about places to eat, things to see, and transportation around Viña and Valpo. We really enjoyed the other guests here too. The place seemed to attract travelers who wanted to be in a community oriented place. Highly recommend.

If you are looking for a hotel like experience with all the commodities, please look elsewhere as this is a hostel, not a hotel. I stayed here for a few days and this was the slow season and the place was almost empty so even though I had requested a shared room, I ended up with a room all to... More

Although Vina del Mar is a touristy place with crowded beaches this hostel is a laid back place. The staff is helpful and speaks English. Prices are cheap compared to other places in Vina and Valparaiso is only 10 minutes away on the Metro or on a bus. Payment is a lot cheaper in US dollars or with a credit... More

I had a really bad experience in this hostel and want people to know about this before going here: I made a reservation for this hostel via hostelworld. When I arrived I was asked to pay in advance, but I was not sure the price they asked was the same as stated on hostelworld. Therefore I asked if it was... More

The Che Largarto VDM is part of a chain of hostels that runs over South America, so we were expecting it to be half decent, but it really wasn’t that great - the whole place needs a major face-lift and personality transplant. It was run down and cold, the staff couldn't really be bothered and the 'kitchen' was a freezing,... More
