Came here intending to stay one night, ended up staying four. A nice place with a good kitchen and a great patio and common area. Definitely not a party hostel, but also not too trankilo. Roxanne is the best! And make sure to check out the gourmet empanadas up the hill.

I had a great time staying at PataPata. The staff are all supremely friendly and helpful, and all are bilingual, making it easy to get information when you need it. The breakfast was delicious, and they work with a local tour guide who gives the best walking tour of any city I've ever been in. Well done!

This place had the best breakfast I've had at a hostel yet: tea/coffee, fresh blended fruit smoothie, ham and cheese / banana & dulce de leche sandwich. The staff was friendly and helpful... but they did take FOREVER getting our rooms together. They let us in way past checkout time.

We stayed here in november 2012. The location is nice. Nice neighborhood with some nice restaurants and emporios. The breakfast was pretty good. sandwich with fruit and coffee/tea. However, the hostel is very noisy. There seem to be no silent hours. We stayed in the double room which is pretty much in the living room. Also the showers are not...

I really dug this place overall. Its in an old, big house with lots of character both in the structure itself and with the design and decorations. The back patio is sunny and homey, the staff are really friendly and down to earth. The breakfast was an amazing step up from the bread with manjar you get everywhere else... coffee,...

Stayed here for 2 nights. The Staff are really helpful and friendly. It's a good location on the hill- 30 minute walk or so to Pablo Neruda's house. Bathrooms are a bit grubby and the hot water was hit and miss. Also not sure when it became okay for people to switch on the lights in a share dorm at...
