We stayed in Hostel Don Pilon one night in February of 2016. We paid US$117 - I think I requested a double room, but we ended up in a room with a king sized bed plus two bunk beds, so perhaps I was paying for a bigger room than I wanted. We ended up in room 5. Here is what...

I went there on a budget. I love VLA and this was one of the cheapest places I could find. I went with a friend and I would go back the next time. The beds are good, the pillows are decent. The bathroom is a bit small and old fashioned but its OK. The staff is VERY good. Very helpful,...

We stayed at the hostel 2 nights. Because of the ashes of the volcano and because we stayed more than 1 night we got a good discount. The owners and their staff tried everything to get the dust out of the hostel, which is the biggest problem at the moment. There's a kitchen that can be used and breakfast with...

We recently stayed at Hostel Don Pilon when we visited the lake area. We travelled with two guests from South Africa (we live in Argentina). The hostel owners and staff were very friendly and helped us wherever they could.The breakfast was delicious and we were served with fresh fruit salad and homemade bread every morning. We checked out very early...
