A very good location to walk to Neruda's house and along the coast. Very friendly staff, you feel like home in this house. Good breakfast with homemade marmelades (we bought some of them, which are excellent). Thank you Sandra !

This is more than just a hostel, an amazing retreat away from city life. It offers yoga, massage and therapies. The host is amazing too and make you feel very welcome. Its very close to shops and the beach. There are 4 dogs and 3 cats so its really homely too. I highly recommend staying here....:-)

I have stayed one night in the hostel. I had the room for myself. The bed had an electric blanket, which was wonderful for cold nights over there . The breakfast was the most delicious I had during my 1.5 months travelling. Most homemade. The only minus was not enough warm water.

We stayed there in May and in October, and we just loved it. This is really a perfect place to rest in Isla Negra. It's very close to the sea and to the house of Pablo Neruda. The owner is super-nice, and now they propose some cultural visits in the area, which is really interesting.

Finding this BnB by car was one of the most stressful experiences during my South America adventure - both Google Maps and Expedia showed the residence a few blocks inland of it's actual location, where the road is cut in half by a line of trees. Luckily, the house itself is a haven for those looking to relax. We de-stressed... More

Beautiful hostel in a beautiful, peaceful town. Loved the hostel and loved Isla Negra. Rustic, Eco-friendly hostel, close to the ocean and only a short walk from the 'main strip' of town. Clean rooms, great service and an awesome outdoor area where we enjoyed a fire and live music one evening. While here I also learnt to make different types... More

I absolutely loved this hostal. I found this hostal, and Isla Negra, the perfect place to connect with others, with nature, and with one's own spirituality. The rooms were very clean, rustic, and colorful. The quotations painted on the walls had me pondering, and the general atmosphere of the hostal was geared towards inclusion, community, and teaching. Many different types... More

This is a beautiful hostel overlooking the sea but unfortunately the whole experience was ruined by our interactions with the owner, Sandra. She seemed quite nice when we arrived and showed us around the hostel. It is forbidden to wash dishes indoors. Dishes must be washed outside, in the cold. The shower is terrible. Changes between hot and cold without... More
