Gardel  - Director of Entertainment

This legendary Peking duck has appeared on more facebook pages than the hostel.  Gardel is named after  Carlos Gardel.  He sings constantly and dances under feet for all who enter the garden. 


Yesy - Queen Bee

Yesy is a founding member of the hostel.  She began working with us when we started in 2001 in the General Lagos location.  This Valdiviana embodies the famous Southern Chilean hospitality.  She works hard to make you comfortable and keeps the hostel pristine.


Viella - Hostel Slave

As she often jokes, the hostel owns her not that she owns the hostel.  This California native can be seen running around working on her list of never ending projects. 

Viella took over the hostel from her dear friend Lionel, in April of 2010.  She came to Chile in 1996 to direct Public Relations and Undergraduate Recruitment for the University Austral de Chile for six years after which she returned to her homeland.  In 2010, she visited Chile and as fate would have it,  ended up taking over the hostel!
