This is a beautiful hostel overlooking the sea but unfortunately the whole experience was ruined by our interactions with the owner, Sandra. She seemed quite nice when we arrived and showed us around the hostel. It is forbidden to wash dishes indoors. Dishes must be washed outside, in the cold. The shower is terrible. Changes between hot and cold without... More

Sandra has created a mini haven to get away from all craziness. With a cosy log fire its lovely to spend your evenings with Sandra learning how to make Native American art. For those who enjoy it the hostel offers many therapies including reiki and massages. The Eco messages is through out all the hostel .You really can feel Sandras... More

Sandra is a great hostess and can make anyone feel welcome. I booked a single bedroom but was upgraded to a double because the room wasn't occupied, so I had the chance to sleep in a super comfy bed with an electric blanket that kept my feet really warm. Sandra also made breakfast and shared with me her vision of... More

Isla Negra is known mainly because of Pablo Neruda, famous Chilean poet. And it is still a Mecca of artists, writers, poets. It"s a magic place and no wonder that artists have chosen to live and work here. The hostel I was staying perfectly fit to this magic place. If you want to spend a magnificent weekend or just rest...

This is a great place to relax and enjoy the general area. The hostel is well supplied, laid-out, comfy, and very clean. The owner, Sandra, is wonderfully friendly and likes to chat and help out with learning Spanish. Also lots of eco-friendly things going on, which is a pleasant change. Big tip: the place is hard to find...call Sandra and... More

The hostel is located close to the beach and only few blocks from the main street. The rooms are nice and clean, and the garden is great for relaxing or having a glass of wine by the campfire. I really liked the friendly and familiar atmosphere of the place. And Sandra is an excellent and very helpful host. A great... More

A wonderful house with a warm and cosy atmosphere! It is close to the beach (100m) and to Pablo Nerudas House in a quiet location. The most noises are coming from the dogs, which I loved from first sight :) the rooms are very nice decorated and clean. I also booked a reflexology which was very good, just in harmony... More

I spend 2 days during the off season (Nov.) and I had a nice time to connect with the owner. She picked me up from the Neruda house when I arrived all lost, and then was gracious in her home teaching me about how to be more ecological. The house was also close to the beach, nearby to the buses... More
