“Home away from home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

Angelica is a really good hostess and makes you feel soooo welcome. We travelled with our baby girl and Angelica just adored her and went out of her way to help us. She even gave us fresh fruit from her garden - amazing melon and plums. Yummy. The double room was lovely and beds very comfy. She does have a Japanese spa but was not working - when she does that will be an great extra touch. I recommend to ask for the double room near front of the house near the lounge as very large and spacious. Hostel Vida 2000 was recommended to me by the tourist information centre in Santa Cruz. Santa Cruz is a quiet town with beautiful buildings and the tourist information centre are brilliant and very helpful for information on vineyards and activities around the area. Visit the vineyards as that is what Santa Cruz is about. Enjoy.

Room Tip: Double room at the front of house which is spacious and very clean. Ask for that one as quieter.

I stayed at vida 2000 for a week, and I really enjoyed my stay there! The rooms were very cozy and clean, the service was spectacular and breakfast was delicious every morning. This is a really wonderful hotel!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

We stayed at Hostal Vida2000 for two nights, with the intention of wine tasting in the region without the expense and limitations of a formal tour.

Gabrielle very kindly picked us up from the bus terminal in Santa Cruz at no extra cost. He then provided us with a comprehensive listing of wineries and attractions the area had to offer. Making the relevant reservations on our request. He then drove us to and picked us up from several wineries in the area, again at no extra cost.

This service made our tours of the wineries much cheaper and more relaxed than if we had booked them through a tour agency (although note it is impossible to taste at many wineries without taking the tour of the winery often at considerable expense (US $40.00 pp).

The hostal itself has an intimate family atmosphere - we met most of Gabrielle's family upon arrival. As such it felt more like a home stay than a B&B or Hostal. Gabrielle is a very friendly host, eager to please and speaks functional English which was very helpful in making reservations as our Spanish is poor. We also left some shoes in the room, and he very kindly sent them via bus to our next destination.

In summary, the high level of service was the best part of our stay. In the absence of the personalised service (e.g. driving around the wineries), the cost of the room itself ($70) would have been overpriced. Hostal Vida may not be suitable for travellers that prefer a higher level of privacy. The beds are comfortable and a basic breakfast is included.

The hostel has a beautiful garden in the back, clean and tidy rooms, and an extremely friendly staff. The rooms are cozy and some are very unique (there´s a pyramid room!).

When we first got here, the hot water in the shower wasn´t working but they fixed it quickly. The hotel staff was very accomodating to our needs and requests. It´s a ten minute walk from the town square, so very central.

This hostal is so homey. The owner and her sons take care of every person as if they were family. From breakfast to internet to heaters in every room, I felt very comfortable here. If I am ever in Santa Cruz again I will definitely stay here. Say hello to the dog Fiona as well! She will adopt you just like the owners.

A really comfortable, friendly place to stay

I was working in Santa Cruz for 1 week and stayed at the Hostal Vida 2000. The location was great, the room was excellent and spacious, and set within a beautiful garden. The breakfast was fantastic and the perfect start to long, tiring days at work. The owners were friendly, flexible and always friendly. Highly recommended!
