We went during low season, so the hostel was pretty empty. So atmosphere I don't know. The staff (Italian guy) was very friendly though. They have a beautiful garden that makes you feel very relaxed. Good location, near the beach. The hostel was clean enough, except for the blankets and sheets on the bed, that didn't seem too clean. There were no lockers in the room, but that might not be necessary in Pichilemu.. We had a good stay, would recommend it!
The hostel has a convenient location and a nice terrace for partying and meeting with friends (outsiders from the hostel are allowed), and even there is a dancefloor inside with powerful sound equipment. But the hostel is a bad place for sleeping : mattresses are not very comfortable and noise is a real issue. The time we staid there were also friends of the owner who made quite a lot of mess, shouting, even alcoholic fighting in a room.
The hostel has a good location and has a nice terrace and entrance which is really good for having drinks with friends (even outside from the hostel) and partying, even dancing inside. But, for sleeping, it becomes really not so nice. The owner of the place leaves friends of him stay sort of randomly in rooms, it becomes very noisy and nobody cares. The organization s not good, and the bathrooms are not very nice. Finally, the mattreses are rather shallow.
This place was disgusting and I had a horrible night's sleep. If you are looking for a party place with apathetic staff, disgusting sheets, a musty and old smell and feel, and loud music until late at night, this place is for you. I paid for 2 nights and left after one! Horrible experience, and found a much better place closer to the beach that is clean, with internet in the rooms, hot water, and a very nice local staff, called Hostel Jamaica, on JJ Aguirre. Much better place.
