Great hostel which was in a quiet suburb close to the beach, it is a social hostel with great staff who always had a big smile and lots of enthusiasm to help with every need. Showers were great and hot water. Had a great time here and would definitely stay there again.
Great place as always in the "che lagarto's"
There were way too few toilets and showers in the hostel - two to three for everyone and one was out of service most of the time because it was so dirty because people cut their hair. Most people there are loud and drink a lot and the staff has no control over them, letting them party all night, slam doors, play loud music, yell, etc. We would definitely not go back there again.
Good, chill hostel. Only stayed 1 night but I thought it was nice. Most of the common areas were outdoors which was interesting. A bit of a trek from the center of the city, but good area.
According to my experience, the best hostel in the Vina/Valparaiso area. Friendly staff and great atmosphere.
My stay at Che Lagarto was great. Awesome staff that provided a fun atmosphere and helped us find things to do around town. I would go back next time I'm in Vina del Mar
The staff is very kind and always keen to help! The location is amazing cause the hostel is close to the beach and the city centre, including bus and metro stops! Just improve the facilities and you'll be a top 10!! Great stay in Vina, many thanks!
The experience was great overall. Location was excellent for our needs, room had a lot of space and a great bed, bathroom was great as well! The staff were EXTREMELY friendly and helpful, and reservations via Hostelworld / checkin / checkout went by without a problem. We were unlucky enough to have a large team of pre-teen cheerleaders staying at the same time who were terribly noisy and disrespectful, but I realize that was out of the Hostel's reach. Would definitely recommend Che Lagarto!

Nice clean hostel in a good location,best thing about the place is the staff who are super super friendly and really helpful!
The hostel is a 2-floor house with large rooms. The staff is great and very kind and welcoming. The rooms are a little bit old, and it was cold during the night, because there was a door towards the exterior of the house in our room. The location of the hostel was good, being a couple blocks from Viña downtown, 15~20min walking, and close to Miramar subway station (5~10min). The breakfast was good, with natural orange juice! :D
