Great location, Altho its a 5 minute walk back down the street to the beach, no steps directly to the beach! Otherwise a great hostel besides, friendly staff, secure, and unbelievably well decorated!! Plus the view of the sea is amazing.. Highly recommended!


Reñaca is much (much) nicer than Viña. Was there out of season, so had a little out of season chilled feel to it. The hostel has magnificent views over the coast and splendid sunsets. The place is tricky to reach but once you're there, public transports to viña (15 min) and valparaiso (45 min) is cheap and reliable. The hostel is quite funky in its decoration. I doubt the staff speaks much english (if any), but they were absolutely adorable with me. No lockers in the dorms (felt safe tho)


House rules aren't clear. Breakfast was very irregular. Some days you'd get orange juice, others you wouldn't. This was not nice.


Nice place, area and people! Recommended.

The Hostel is not located in the city of Viña del Mar as it says. You have to take a bus from Viña to the small beach town of Reñaca. In high season (summer) expect a travel time of approximately 1 hour from Viña due to dense traffic on the coastal road. The view from our room over the bay was priceless though. We didn't like the atmosphere in the hostel.


Love this hostel! great views of the beach, rooms not too crowded, different areas for mixing with people, good pool, good breakfast. Most importantly excellent staff, Martin, Mathias and the girl with the frizzy hair (sorry I forgot your name) were especially good, fun, friendly, open minded and partied with the guests. Only improvement would be to put some lockers in the bedrooms for valuables. Buenisimo! quedase aca si vaya a Viña o Reñaca.


By far has the best and clean facilities I have been. Close to the beach bars and restaurants. It is on the pricey side of hostels but well worth the money.


Perfect hostel! Beautiful view on the beach and you can see all the way to valparaiso. 5 min walk to the beach and the center of the town. The hotel is in '70 style and so nice! Would recommend it to anyone who wants to chill on the beach in a very nice and chill surrounding! Only one small disadvantage: one shower went cold all the time.

The hostel is fine, especially because of the superb location, with the best ocean and Valpo Bay view and the relaxed, homely atmosphere.. But it is completely ridiculous that they don't sereve breakfast before 10, claiming that it is a party hostel and peope sleep all morning. Even party people may want to spend their mornings doing other things tban sleeping, considering they may have travelled from the other side of Earth. Moreover breakfast is VERY basic when at last it arrives :-(
