As a person who takes hostel review very seriously I want to let future travels know how great this hostel was. I stayed here for six nights and did not want to leave. I truly felt like I was home. The rooms were comfortable, everything was very well kept and clean and the food was delicious. The atmosphere of the common area is very relaxed and is perfect for a Chile get away. Also less than a five minute walk to the west is the ocean with a swimmable beach and great restaurants.

To be honest all of these aspects were great but what is best about the hostel is the staff. I felt like I was living with family. They were so nice and so helpful and made my stay mare than perfect. We became friends over my week there and I made sure to get a picture with them so I could remember them better. Truly some amazing people. I hope that by reading this review you take me seriously because this place will no doubt make your Chile experience.

Room Tip: The whole is hostel is great, I don't think the room matters

The B@B has a great location. It is located in a very pleasant neighborhood, within easy walking distance to tourist attractions, the beach, banks and restaurants. It may be a bit tricky to find as it is on a small but cozy street. The area and the building felt safe. The bus station is within walking distance as well.
Our room and the entire premises were clean, cozy and well maintained.
The staff and owners were very hospitable and informative (one spoke English).
The shared bathroom with bathtub was large, bright and clean. Our twin room was smallish but big enough to sleep in. The beds were comfortable and the linen and towels were decent and clean. There is a pleasant back yard with seating area and grill. There is a well equipped kitchen available for guests as well.
The Wi-Fi was good and reached our room as well. Breakfast was exceptionally good. Both were included in the room rate.
Their website does not work properly, if at all…!
This was a good choice. I would recommend this place to a friend.

Martha and Patricia were very warm and welcoming, the breakfasts were excellent, the public areas of the hostele very comfortable. I appreciated the location: walking distance close to restaurants, the beach, and public transportation. I felt very safe and secure in the building. The fellow guests were equally warm and friendly, so the Jaguar very quickly felt like a home away from home. Since I was travelling on a budget, my room was small but had the en suite bathroom I desired and plenty of storage space. Most of their rooms were larger, and I found I had everything I needed. I hope to return to Vina del Mar and would definitely stay at the Jaguar again.

After having spent 3 nights on the hill, we wanted something closer to town, but the accommodations always look fine online... till you actually see them. So we checked out at least 5 hostels/hotels in Vina del Mar within a similar price range. Res. Jaguar was the best, it is in a great location and within walking distance of the beach, restaurants, buses etc. We loved the decor and the ambiance, and our bed was very comfortable, and the breakfast good. You have access to the kitchen which is always clean and ready to use. There is a living room and a patio that are great places to just hang out.

This accommodation really doesn't have a description, it's kind of a B&B and kind of a hostel but it's definitely a deal. I had my own room and bathroom for $30 a night. The room was spotless and Patty made me a great breakfast (and big) every morning. She made my bed and cleaned my room every day. Now for the odd component. I was there during the off season, so I was the only guest. The rest of the house was filled with college students who live there. Richie (owner) told me that when they leave for summer break (December), then he fills the rooms with travelers. Richie speaks English but no one else does so it's a little weird and lonely if you wanted the typical B&B experience. I was visiting my daughter who is studying in Valpo, so it didn't matter to me.
