Hostal Jacaranda & Home, Valparaiso, Chile

5th Oct 2014

We had a nice comfortable room and the staff were friendly. The kitchen is good for cooking in. However, this hostel is really small and it lacks communal space- there is just one small sitting room. Also there is no computer for guests to use, which is diappointing.

This is an average hostel- OK for a couple of nights stay. Staff are friendly and the kitchen was well-equipped. The computer was a bit slow and there was only one, which was frequently in use.When we were there the hostel was very busy and there was only one functioning hot shower on our floor.

This is a comfortable and clean hotel in a good location. The breakfast is excellent. The only downside is there is no free Internet access- Despite this, I recommend it.

This is not really a hostel to be honest. It is more like a hotel as the rooms are big and have big private bathrooms and daily maid service. Also there is no kitchen but there is a small restaurant. The location is near the centre and a metro station so it is handy for getting around. However, the area itself is a bit dodgy so if you prefer to be on the glitzy side of town you might not like it!

This place has a lovely swimming pool, welcome in the heat and great communal areas. It also has a good kitchen to cook in. We stayed in a private room without bathroom, which was at the top of the house and very dark and small. The bathroom was at the bottom of the house so it was quite inconvenient. However, the dorms looked really nice so I would recommend this place if you stay in dorms. For a decent private room you may want to look elsewhere.

Hello Thanks for staying with us and enjoying our hostel. We would like to point out that you reserved a private room with a bunk bed for your wife and yourself and this in now way reflects our other matrimonial rooms in which all of our past guests have been very happy with and speak highly of. Our description for the room in question reads "small private room with a bunk bed, A/C and shared bathroom." We are sorry you weren't happy with your booking and wish you a happy travels

We absolutely loved our week long stay here. The staff are truly awesome- friendly, welcoming and helpful- they create a warm, homely atmosphere. Our private room was spacious and bright and the rooms are cleaned every day including the rubbish being emptied, which doesn't seem to happen in every hostel in South America. The terrace overlooking the city is a fantastic place to have breakfast and to relax in the evening. It is in a good location close to Laps, with good transport links.

This is a really lovely, peaceful hostel, set in a beautiful garden. Our private room was in a little separate chalet, which was great for privacy. It also had the best shower we have encountered in any hostel anywhere on our trip in South America (been on the road for 9 weeks so we have stayed at a few!) There was a fantastic communal area. We really enjoyed our stay here and thoroughly recommend it.

The only good thing about this hostel is the breakfast, as everyone says. Otherwise, we found the staff to be unfriendly and unhelpful. The room and bathroom were really small. The shower was particularly tiny in our private room. There was a construction yard in the front as they are building a swimming pool so the picture that shows a pool is false. The location is next to the supermarket, so there are noisy delivery trucks all the time. It is expensive too. Look elsewhere.

"being from somebody that extend the stay is hard to understand your comment Staff 94% rated is unfriendly and unhelpful? The private rooms are small but the value is fair. We are in central area (means bit of noise in rush hours). If was expensive why did you extend? We finish a NEW BETTER swimming pool & and other chiill out area. You want pics of the contruction (during 3 weeks that took to build it) Now is winter and cold, time to do it, nobody was using the pool."

A friendly hostel in a good location. They let us into our room very early as we arrived on the overnight bus, which was great. They can do a good deal on the Vanzella to Bonito, cheaper than booking it at Hotel Nacional.

This is a lovely hostel, with really friendly and helpful staff. The breakfast was great- nice to get some eggs and hot coffee. Our private room was a bit small but the bed was comfortable. It was quiet when we stayed so we got a good night's sleep. The outside communal area is really beautiful with a shady garden and a pool. We really enjoyed our stay here and totally recommend it to others.

This is a lovely, clean and bright hostel in a good location. The breakfast is very good and there is good soundproofing. The best thing is the staff, who are very friendly and helpful and speak excellent English for those like me whose Spanish is still at the pigeon stage! The only negative was that the WiFi was really hit and miss when we were there.

This hostel was much too noisy. The music was very loud in the evening and it went on until 1-2am. I was not able to sleep well at all.
