BEYOND any other hostel service! This hostel ticked my 'it' boxes- safety, location, wifi, cleanliness. Off the plane from Australia my sister and I arrived in valparaiso without speaking a word of Spanish. Our communication with Luna Sonrisa had already been amazing with quick replies and directions to the hostel via bus, taxi or foot if you prefer. We caught... More

Luna Sonrisa was extremely impressive from the moment we stepped through the door. We opted to take a taxi from the bus station, as we had just landed that day from Australia. I would recommend if you are going to take a taxi to get them to agree on a set price (between 4-5000 peso), not use the metre. We... More

We got a taxi from the bus station to Luna Sonrisa given the hostel is on one of the many hills of Valparaiso. Once we had our bearings it was very easy to get around & the hostel is situated in a great location - close to many restaurants & bars, a great bakery & grocery store. We had the... More

Hostel owner was an absolute star and really did me a big favour helping me out with bookings. He is very knowledge and friendly. Rooms were clean and comfy. Plug sockets and lockers by the bed. Secure hostel. Very homely decoration. Breakfast is delicious bread, teas/coffees and fruits.

Really pleasant hostel in a great location. Room 11 was sparse and up a long set of stairs, not so good for beer drinkers in the night The owner also has a bakery nearby so the breakfast bread was really good and fresh. Rather weak USA style coffee, but plenty of it. Decent kitchen, pleasant staff. A good place

Dont really have any complaints about this hostel. Good location, great breakfast, clean, helpful, good showers. We were in a dorm, with bedside lights and big lockers. Great kitchen. Good atmosphere. Near a mini-market which was open late every night. One of the double rooms had no lock on the window. But the place is, and feels, really safe as... More

Great breakfast(goat cheese, good coffee and selfmade marmelades, melons!), clean and colourfull,being situated in a great hippy area! The stuff helps you out with any questions you have. Good wifi connection, and you get in contact with many other travellers from all over the world. Would love to come here again!

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights in a twin room located next to the bathroom and then a double room upstairs, both with shared bathroom. Both rooms were clean and comfortable although I preferred the double upstairs. Breakfast was included in the rate and was a lovely spread of fruits, coffee, bread and jams. The kitchen facilities...

Excellent little hostel, perfectly located at the top of the "hippest" area in Valpo. Staff is super friendly and helpful, creating a very welcoming atmosphere. Most rooms do face the inside hall of the hostel, so maybe a little noisy for light sleepers (depending on reciprocal respect between guests), though I personally didn't notice... Everything is very clean and tidy,... More
