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

I have spent about one and a half month in a Valparaíso and Chile, and i have been living in different hostels. But i must admit, that i've been spending four of the six weeks only in Luna Sonrisa, which i only have good things to say about! The staff was super friendly and helpful, and the owner was a...

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

A very good adress, great location right in one of the most typical area of Valparaiso, cosy and comfortable with great breakfast. Welcome is very friendly and even more fair than expected. We reserved an apartment for 5 and actually were just 3 as the 2 others decided to rest in Santiago...and we get a reduction.. Very appreciated. Very good... More

This is a great place to stay if you want a quiet and relaxing trip. The owner is extremely helpful, booking us our bus tickets and giving amazing advice about the city and Chile in general. The rooms are big and clean with comfy beds. The breakfast is excellent, with homemade jams, and is one of the best we've had... More

Hostel located in a beautiful old building at a great location on Cerro Alegre. Nice, helpful staff that gave us good information about the town upon arrival. We had a nice room and the shared bathroom was good. Really good breakfast with homebaked whole grain bread, different fruits, cheese and homemade marmelade. Would have been nice with yoghurt though. Good... More

Not only is it a beautiful hostel, but the owner, having written travel guides on Chile and South... More

Pros: excellent location in Cerro Alegre. Nice communal areas. Beds have great pillows and mattresses. One of the best breakfasts I've had in Chile. Cons: Younger staff aren't that attentive and very loud when amongst themselves. There was a tap leaking all the time in the bathroom unless you turned off with a lot of effort. I also think the...

I loved the breakfast: home-made bread=) and always fresh fruits, cheese,... the dormitory was great as well, you could feel that the owner has travelled a lot. Each bed has its own reading lamp and power point plus a huge locker kinda build into the wall, were a big backpack would fit. I also had enough room to spread a... More
