I've been to countless hostels in the last two years but João and Marta still managed to impress me not only with a really cozy and clean hostel but with their hospitality and attention to small things. As if this was not enough, there is a charming garden where you can chill with a pleasant view of the city. Would rate it more than 100% if it was possible. :)
Flawless, as usual.
A really good hostel with an awesome staff and cool activities. Definitely recommended.
I wish every hostel in the world had curtains on bunk beds like this one, it's like having your own room inside the shared room. Beautiful lounge, really nice staff, good breakfast, cool activities. Recommended.
Second time at this hostel: it just gets better and better. I've been doing some math and the results are: Mama's traditional homemade dinner is approximately a million times better than having dinner out.
This is a nice hostel with nice staff, a pretty good bar downstairs, good breakfast etc etc but it has only one REALLY ANNOYING problem: the worst showers ever created by man in the whole history of mankind, in which you have to hold a chain so the water will come down. The good part is that it gave me a whole new perspective about what is a terrible annoying shower, so i'll never complain again about it in any other hostel.
This place COULD be perfect, but minor things kept bugging me all the time: all lockers in my room were taken (just number them, guys!), key card stopped working, rented towel disappeared after cleaning (at least they gave me another without major problems), bunch of teenagers were partying loud and heavy inside next room, laundry machine was broken. On the other hand, the staff was really, really helpful, the place quite clean, the bar pretty cool and the beds comfortable.
Awesome staff, really good free dinner. Thumbs up.
This is my favorite hostel in the whole world, no casual hyperbole. Go there.
Made me feel like i was home, loved it. :)
Really good rooms and super helpful and nice staff, every single one of them. Stayed there for a week and loved it.
Really good, cozy and clean hostel. Every single member of the staff is awesome - especially Cacau, who helped me so much with directions and advices about the city. Didn't rate it 100% because showers are really annoying (you have to keep holding a button for water) and because internet is a little unstable.
This is, by far, the best hostel i've ever stayed in my whole life. Rooms are amazing, showers are really good, common area is perfect. Mama's dinner is so good you'll just want to eat there every day instead of going out for food. Staff is incredibly helpful and super friendly. Book it. Right now. You can punch me in the face if you don't like it.
a guy entered the parking lot with a bike and tried to steal my phone. rooms are waaay below average. pool and barbecue area is good, though.
Seriously, I love this place. I've been to some five other hostels in Santiago and this was by far the best. It's quiet, clean and there is a GARDEN inside with tables where you can sit to drink and relax. How awesome is that? And the staff is super nice - specially Andrea! :)
A friend told me that this is the best hostel in Santiago, but I don't know what's the fuss about this place. It's well located and clean but it's BORING. Almost all guests were either old and picky or just weird.
An amazing hostel in a beautiful area, very close to the center of Viña del Mar. It has a really large terrace with an incredible view of the city - perfect for a romantic dinner ;) Patricio is a very, very pleasant host. He gave us invaluable tips about the city, wines and he even helped us in the middle of the night with the kitchen, always extra polite.
I've been to a lot of hostels with nice staff, but staying in El Quijote made me feel like I was home. This hostel is run by a really kind family that will treat you like you're part of it, and I might return to Bariloche in the future not only because it's a great city, but because I want to see them again.
