My stay here was awful.I actually feared for my well being.they played loud music and partied all night long until 6 o'clock the next morning.I was unable to use either the bathroom or the kitchen as they filthy beyond belief.when I complained to the night clerk she laughed and said what do expect this is a party hostel.we had to barricade ourselves in our room to keep from being accosted. it's a great place to stay I suppose if you want to get your throat cut.

I arrive at 10am before the checkin and they made me pay 5000 pesos because I fell asleep on a couch! The bathroom are always dirty, the wifi is bad and works only at the reception, there are almost no plugs in the dorms (only two behind the bed of someone else in my 8 bed dorm). The staff is great but the owner is unsympathetic.


The staff didn't speak spanish. A shared room with 4 beds, no window cost usd150 per person. The shared bathroom was absolutely dirty!!! The front door was always open: very unsecure! The hostel smell like alcohol everywhere. They even tried to charge us for keeping our bags 4 extra hours in a room full of bag with no tags at all. It was the only hostel available that is why we booked it but it was the worst experience! Way too expensive for a dirty and smelly place. They basically stole us.


24 hour party people


The hostel was FILTHY! The wifi worked only in the reception. The breakfast was terrible: White toast and coco pops. The security level was bad: Anyone could just walk in. And everyone spoke only spanish so I felt a little bit excluded. Do not stay here. I would not recommend staying here, take a hostel in Valparaiso.


I didn't actually get to stay at this hostel as my plans changed at the last minute. However I do highly recommend this hostel. They were really understanding of my situation and didn't charge me for any accommodation, even know the rules stated I had to pay for one night. The location in Viña del Mar is unbeatable. They are located downtown in Viña and close to everything you need. The main bus terminal is only a short walk down the road
