La Torre Suiza Reviews

Lovely place, great staff, yummy breakfasts.

Staff were extremely friendly, knowledgeable and helpful, particularly Helena, who 1) let us check in and sleep as soon as we arrived off the bus in Villarrica at 8:30 am, even though we hadn't even made a reservation and 2) not only booked our trip for us up volcano Villarrica, but got up at 6 to make us breakfast before we left. Our room had a gorgeous view of the volcano, and though small, the bed was very comfortable. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, would come back again.

I had a completely amazing experience in Chile, but the hotel kind of ruined it!

La Torre Suiza Reviews from the Web

Liked: Well located, Supermarket right around the corner, only a few blocks to the lake front, House nicely decorated, kitchen well equiped.  Disliked: First of all, they lost our reservation from hostelbookers so they did not even know we were coming. Luckily they were not fully booked, so we could stay. Next Morning, we wanted to get breakfast, as it is included in the price. However, the table was not set. The girl told us, breakfast is not included, standing right next to a pricelist, hanging on the Wall, were it said in big letters: breakfast included!

The toilet and shower was dirty when we got there and was not cleaned during the two days we stayed in the hostel. Also, the hot water did not work. Additionally, toilet paper was empty. As no one felt responsible replacing it, we ended up buying our own.

At the end, we decided to change to another hostel, as things just did not get better after two days complaining. At least, we got money back because of the missing breakfast...

Liked: Good kitchen facilities. Breakfast was nice. Beds were comfortable  Disliked: Staff were disorganized. It took a long time for them to open the gate when we first arrived (made it worse because it was raining). They didn't seem to know that we were coming, so our 2 bed dorm had been given to a walk-in customer. They were nice enough to upgrade us to a private room w/ private bathroom for the night, but failed to tell us that they would charge us the difference in price for the rest of our stay. We moved to the 2 bed dorm the next night and it was VERY noisy - it was right beside the bathroom, which had a very squeaky door and you could hear EVERYTHING through the wall. Internet connection was constantly dropping.

Liked: Spent three wonderful days and nights in this really cosy and clean hostel.

I liked most of all the friendly staff, the well equipped kitchen, the location close to the Bus-Terminal in Vilarrica and the breakfast with tasty bread and even homemade cake!

By the way I think that Villarrica is a far better choice to stay than Pucn, less touristic, more authentic, cheaper... - and still very good bus connections to the National Park.  Disliked: Doesn't come to my mind.

Liked: Beet and Claudia were wonderful hosts and very helpful with organising our trips. Breakfast was delicious and even though we had to get up at 5am to climb the volcano, they made sure breakfast was ready and waiting! As it was off season, we were the only guests so can't comment on if it is a fun place to meet people but the kitchen was a good space for hanging out as was the large front room, with loads of books, maps and games. Would most certainly recommend, Claire & Stewart (UK)  Disliked: Claire left no negative feedback.
