All of the staff members are helpful, friendly, and a pleasure to work with. During my stay I was fortunate to meet a variety of interesting guests from many parts of the world. Interesting adventurous travelers who are enjoying life. Some in their 20's some in their 70's and all ages in between, which makes for a wonderful balance. In... More

This was a great hostel. Really helpful staff, clean and in a great location. Great atmosphere and quiet at night. We had a double room upstairs which was a bit hazardous walking down to the bathroom at night but worth it for the view! Would recommend a stay here

We stayed here for three nights between Christmas and New Year. The hostel is housed in a lovely old building, the staff are very nice. It is in an excellent location, near lots of restaurants. We had a double room, with bathroom, at the front. The bathroom was ok but a bit 'tired'. There were a couple of disadvantages: there... More

We stayed a couple of nights in a double and so far it's been one of the nicest rooms in Chile, for the average price you pay for a double, 25,000 pesos. Janak and others are wonderfully helpful, keen to make sure you have a great stay in Valpo and the surrounding area. Breakfast is the norm for chile with... More

I stayed at Luna Sonrisa for 5 nights. Location is pretty good: even though the place is high up in Cerro Alegre hill, it's only 100m from Plazuela San Luis where you can take a bus from bus station or a colectivo from Plaza Anibal Pinto / Cumming Street (night life hotspot). Walking down the streets is pretty cool even... More

I spent 11 nights at Luna Sonrisa. It's in a lovely, bright, house and in a great location, close to several cafes, restaurants and bars as well as within short walking distance of some of the most interesting and most beautiful parts of Valparaiso. The staff and owner were wonderful, always friendly and helpful. Dorms and private rooms - I... More

We stayed two nights in the appartment. The check in was very distant, we did not felt welcome at all. We got many informations in a 5 minutes-monologue. On the homepage the appartment is called luxury, we found it average. 2 of 4 chairs are broken, we hurt ourselves. We found 3 wineglasses, all different size, one broken. All dishes... More

Loved Valparaíso and this hostel played a massive part in that...so much so I will be returning to Luna Sonrisa in my travels of South America (I think this says it all!) Clean, best breakfast I've had in Sth America, all the staff are absolutely fantastic with great advice/help, great location...what more can I say. If I seem fullsome, it... More
