“One Stop Service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

More than just a hostel! 13 Lunas is definitely a melting pot for 'long-lost-brothers-and-sisters' all around the world! I never feel like a stranger there. It's located just 5 minutes walking from the city center. The staff (and even the owner!) mingle with all the guests really well! And they treat all the guests more like family and friends than just as guests. Very handy and helpful! The building is very well-maintained and clean. Comfortable bed, clean bathroom, big common area, fully-equipped kitchen, ping pong table, 'asado' almost every night, and also movie night! The breakfast is amazing! And you don't want to miss the Penguin Tour (ask them to take you down to the beach. My fave one is Playa Brava, you'll be spoiled!). I couldn't ask for more!

We stayed 2 nights. The showers were great! The beds big and comfy! And the penguin tour a must! Everyone was super friendly and helped us figure out transportation for our next destination :) Breakfast had everything you would include in the typical Chilean banquet plus delicious eggs! And in the basement they do asados and have a ping pong table.

I can't say enough good things about 13 Lunas hostel. My friend and I arrived at the colorfully painted house just in front of the Cruz Del Sur bus station on a rainy night and we were greeted warmly by the staff and a couple of cute fuzzy doggies. The hostel looks brand new, with lots of artesian handicrafts decorating the walls. We were shown to a room with two twin beds, super cozy, and the shared bath was impeccably clean. We had a great night playing cards and drinking wine, chatting with the staff and a couple other guests. In the morning they had a full breakfast prepared, eggs, yogurt, fresh bread, jams, juice, etc. I would highly recommend staying here if you are looking for a warm and friendly place with a delicious breakfast !!

This hostal is located right across from the bus terminal, which is a great way to just drop off your stuff, and especially helpful when it's raining (which is a lot of the time). The hostel is big and cozy, but I was especially impressed with the service. We were staying in a room in the basement when it began to flood (probably due to the nonstop rain), after alerting the staff they immediately moved us to an incredibly nice room on the first floor, that seemed to be the room of one of the staff! They were very nice and helpful, and I definitely recommend this hostel.

The hostal is very nice, straight in front of the Cruz del sur terminal, which is particularly handful when you arrive under heavy rain.
Staff is really welcoming and the hostal is very well maintain (well, it's almost brand new but it is kept super clean). The dorms are very airy and the bunk beds are the biggest I've ever seen. Super large and comfortable. Very good choice!
Common areas are huge as well and the kitchen is super well equiped. Breakfast is big and complete.
Go for it !

The hostal is brand new, so everything is satisfied ex. large and cozy bed in dorm room, plus nice breakfast including egg and cheese. Also, the staff, Claudio, is more like a friend and very helpful. You can feel he does want to take care of his guests. I just wish I could stay there forever. :)
