We really enjoyed meeting the dutch couple running the hostel in November and the surf is closeby. Good spot to land.

I stayed two nights and left when the people hired to clean, never did. The couple that left when I got there, warned me about no cleaning the one toilet shared by ten people. The owner only cares about the restaurant, which charges twice as much as other places and you get half the portions.

Seeing hostals in Argentina, we expected a bit more. Surf hostal was more bare bones than expected, providing a bed with clean sheets and a shower.

We had to ask for towels, and they seem surprised that we were asking. However, we were not the typical tourist-surfer, so many this is why this was the case. Also, no soap or such was provided, so make sure to bring all yourself. (We thought the soap was expected at any lodging where a bathroom was provided.)

However, when searching for accommodations in Pichilemu, this was one of the few. Arriving into town there are quite a few "cabanas", so if you are looking to stay multiple nights you might want to look into those.

However, if you just want to crash for a night with good company and English-speaking guests, this would be a good choice. The lounge was very nice, included a good choice of beers, two restaurants next door and a fire pit off the outside deck.

I stayed at Pichilemu Surf Hostel over Christmas 2009 and I had a great time. It is a unique place. Yes, it is a little rough around the edges and the hot water is somewhat unpredicatable but it is also one of the loveliest hostels I have ever stayed in and the welcome is fantastic. If Pamela is still working there, you will feel welcome right away. I recommend staying in the upstairs dorm as it is nicer and has awesome sea views. Recommended for young, adventurous travellers!
