I stayed with a friend during new years in the hostel.
from the first moment on we felt at home there!
It´s the perfect place to surf, eat and to sleep :D
we went everyday together to the beach to surf and to eat the best empanadas in the world!!
New years was awesome and everything is so easygoing there. It´s a dream for every traveller who likes surfing and the easy things in life.
it was the only hostel i have been to without wifi and i think that made the difference. because you kind of have to talk to each other ;) and there is free wifi in the citiy itself just in case you really need it.

First of all, it is the cheapest hostel in pichilemu, which could totally negate any expectations, or pre-conceived notions....but this is trip advisor.

7 mil a night, but here is my experience.

we arrived, were checked in by a welcoming hostess i guess could be the word. kind of a barebones hostel, not overly clean, not insanely dirty, somewhere in between. we set down our stuff, and set out to cruise the town by foot, no this wasnt our first time to pichilemu.

we were told about the security system and how to access 'it'

when we came back to the hostel, no one was around so we tried to use the key to get it the door, without luck. i didn't want to just keep using force because breaking a key is not a cool thing to do.

so we sat and waited and luckily people arrived within 15 minutes. unfortunately these guests weren't overly friendly, even asking us if we had payed and checked in already. ( no... we like to break into hostels before we decide on staying there, and how did we know where the key was?) bad form.

after breaking into the house through the back, we finally were able to go to our room, where after getting there, we left again. this place doesn't exactly make you want to hang out and get comfortable in the common areas, plus the empanadas at casa de empanadas are worth the wait.

long story short...i think, we came back and tried to go to sleep around 11 or so (yes i know about chilean time scales) so kind of early, but we were beat from traveling all day and kind of wanted to enjoy that last part of the name. "sleep"

not happening, the other guests decided to party until 5 am outside our door, with a bar break inbetween, so after returning were even more considerate than before. a couple guests even decided to try and use the indo-board after getting all toasty, worst decision ever. good thing they fell a bunch of times...luckily without injury.

so in summary, i saw one person who surfed at this hostel, the kitchen stuff was pretty dirty in the sink from prior use, and i didn't sleep more than 15 minutes.

change your name, maybe you won't get people like me with 'pre-conceived notions'

never again

Room Tip: try to keep the door closed or you'll become a buffet for sancudos (mosquitos)

The nice Swiss owner has been traveling himself and you can see that in the way he runs the hostel. He knows what backpackers need.
The atmosphere is really relaxed and the cozy living room makes the guests feeling like a big family. He organizes BBQs and always helps with questions.
I recommended the hostel to other travelers I met. It's really worth to stay if you plan to go to Pichilemu.
Thank you Oliver ;)

We had such a great stay here! We only planned on staying 2 nights and ended up staying 5...we only get stuck in really jive places! Anna, the girl who works here was amazing! We surfed, we ate and we slept! The place gets cleaned on a daily basis and has really really comfy beds! Anna was quite clued up on the surf as well and gave us info on where to jump in at the point and also where to hire gear. We had some great times here! Place is a bot hard to find as there is no sign outside..but all adds to the 'i found a secret awesome spot' feel!

Stayed here last April for about a week while planning on staying just 2 nights. I even returned again after a couple of weeks. Oliver and Lorena are very nice and helpful people. Every night we had a family dinner together with the other guests staying there. Here I met some of the nicest people on my trip through South America. The common kitchen is very small but there's everything you need. The beds are incredibly comfortable, a great relief after sleeping in so many crappy hostel beds. This hostel is basic but perfect.
