The main attraction of this hostel definitively is the garden with pool, which is a great place to relax. The location is fine if you don't mind walking. The hostel itself however urgently needs to get a makeover. Problem is that everything is really old and not so clean. I can live with scaling paint and some black mold in... More

What more do you want for breakfast. We gave you every day tea, coffee, milk, oatmeal, yogurt, pancakes, fruit, jam, butter, ham and cheese. You want something more? The cleaning is done every day and we are not required to have latest fashion furniture. It is a simple and clean hostel with pool and gardens to relax. Not a 5... More

We stayed for a couple of nights in a room with shared bathroom. It was all clean, but the room was tiny, as was the bathroom. I'm 6 foot and couldn't stand fully in the shower. The place could do with a redecorate as all the sheets and towels looked old and worn. The garden was lovely, the location was... More

It is a very cute little hostel or more like a guesthouse run by its owners. We felt very safe because it has private parking. The bathrooms are clean and good hot showers. Rooms are cleaned every day and delicious breakfast included in the price. What more could we need!

First, Gisela and Carlos are very sweet people with one of the better hostals I've ever stayed in. It was my dads birthday and they sang to him and gave us a bottle of wine. Extremely kind and generous. The location is great and the rooms are extremely clean. They have a kitchen available but it have no stove. They... More

Gisela and Carlos were so nice as hosts. That is what made the stay good. We found throughout Chile that heating is a rarity- we travelled in winter. It's lucky that we had our snowboarding stuff, because I freezed here at night. Gisela and Carlos were great though, giving us extra hot water bottles and blankets. The breakfast was great... More

Despite being full, Gisela and Carlos did all they could to find us somewhere else to stay when we turned up, before offering us a mattress in a small room, which we accepted. They were very helpful in telling us what to see and do in Viña and Carlos even drove us to the bus station on our departure (for... More

Gisela and Carlos welcome you to their home and the fantastic facilities like a family member arriving home. There are only 5 guest rooms so there is never a problem with overcrowding.

A very nice retreat from the busy streets of Vina. Wonderful breakfast served late enough for a sleep in. Super friendly and helpful. Small basic rooms. Nice outside areas to relax in deck chairs, although the pool is a little green.

This was one of the best places we stayed in Chile. They were so friendly and the place was very tranquil. Breakfast was amazing and the locations is close town. We had our room on the top floor which had it's own bathroom and was close to the kitchen and dining area so it felt almost like our own suite!... More
