Skip double room--connected to the bathroom, so we listened to a symphony of functions. Nice greeting and such, but didn't have towels and others at hostel seemed brusque. Breakfast is spare relative to the same price elsewhere. Hostel is noisy even by Chilean standards due to thin walls and street noise. Clean enough, but bins not emptied in bathrooms (and with so many people to 2 bathrooms...) Note: with free breakfast, wash your own dishes (ok, but no sign). Avoid--bad value, noisy, $$$.

First if all, we are sorry that your stay was not satisfactory and we are saddened to receive such a bad intentioned commentary. All of the house in southern chile are noisy, as they are made of wood. We do lend towels, free of charge, you just need to ask. We offer homemade bread daily for breakfast and try to accommodate everyone. We are sorry that you didn't see the sign to wash your own dished, in the future we will try to make it more visible. Sincerely, Paradise Pucon Hostel.

Hostel La Colombina

Valparaiso, Chile

Nice place with good breakfast and welcoming staff. As with any older building (and most iin Chile),bring earplugs, as the floors creak and the walls are thin. (We have been all over Chile and are light sleepers--just bring earplugs unless you wall yourself in a Sheraton). Gabriella was very helpful and speaks English well, though she was patient with our attempts at Spanish. Wifi good and hot water as good as can be expected in an old building ( be patient!). Plenty to eat nearby. Clean.


Sur Pension

great! stayed here twice. The rooms are small, clean & safe. The staff is friendly and honest. had some confusion on rate, but quickly settled over phone in our favor. We don't speak Turkish, but the limitations are no problem. They'll get someone who speaks English, if needed. Drank lots of tea and had chats with other guests and staff practicing English. Nobody was pushy or tried to sell us anything. Great value in overpriced Istanbul if you want clean and safe. breakfast nearby.
