“Pretty Basic”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

We had two nights at this hostel, close to the centre of Valdivia. They don’t advertise parking, but you can pull into their gated drive and park there. We arrived a little early, but check in was strictly 3pm.

Up to our room on the first floor, which had a double & a single bed. Quite a Spartan room and a tad threadbare, along with a scruffy looking wardrobe, but it was all clean. Good sized bathroom, but again very basic with thin towels.

Breakfast – the most meagre breakfast we had on our trip. Hot water in a thermos on the table to add to your powdered Nescafe (our worst nightmare). A dish of cheese, a couple of jams and a cake. We were then brought a yogurt and white bread that had already been toasted. There were a couple of apples one day and some unripe plums the next. We didn’t starve, but it was a very frugal affair.

There is nothing particularly wrong with this hostel. It is well located, warm and clean, but for all that, pretty basic.

Tip – don’t miss the fantastic fish market by the river, with the sea lions being fed off-cuts by the fish filleters. What a sight to behold and very entertaining.

This hostel (or more a hotel actually) is really really nice. The rooms are comfortable and the location is perfect, walking distance to the city and the sea lions and also walking distance o bus station.

Staff helpful and welcoming, and on our day of departure the nice lady working night prepared breakfast 1 hour earlier for us than breakfast is normally served.

A nice hostal, staff were pleasant but could not speak English, the room was large and clean. Heating was great and breakfast was generous- a cake, toast, yoghurt, cereal and coffee/tea. Great location very central.
