Been here twice, the first time a few years back when it was Patiperro Hostel, and again last year. Very well run with great WIFI, clean, fun hostel, in a good location in Valparaiso up the hill. The staff make you very welcome and the breakfast is excellent.

Really nice hostel, cozy. Dorm bunkbeds a little flimsy and bathrooms limited. However, the staff are so so helpful and friendly - when I had a problem they did everything they could to help. Good location, nice breakfast, really pretty courtyard and social area and decent kitchen. On a pedestrian street with some really cool street art, so quiet at... More

A really nice hostel run by a kind, friendly family. I stayed for much longer than I originally planned because I had such a nice time at PataPata. The staff are very friendly and willing to help, and the facilities are good as well. Overall, the atmosphere is lively, without being over the top. This made for a really enjoyable... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights and the hospitality was great. We were served breakfast and made amazing banana milkshakes. Great pit stop while exploring the beautiful city. You can manage to walk to the beach and some nice views throughout the city.

First time in Valparaiso and the Patapata treated me right! I stayed 4 days at the beginning of December and had a great time. The staff was friendly and very helpful getting me acquainted to the town. Isaac gave me the best advice, just leave the map and lose yourself in the town, he was so right! At every corner... More

Last month I went with a friend to Valparaiso to enjoy for a couple of days. I booked online and paid the total. When we made the check out, received a bad surprise. The manager of the hostel wanted to add an extra night, because found suspicious that we paid all the nights in one time. We explain it in... More

Staff are rude and would not take responsibility for anything. I.e. lack of water and bed bugs. They took 3000 pesos for family dinner and provided the smallest food portion possible. Spent less than the budget and ate for free at the expense of the traveller. Unacceptable. Find another place.

This is a lovely, lovely hostel - on the beautiful Templeman, with big rooms, comfortable beds, the best wifi we encountered in Chile or Argentina, with a great range of guests, and a homely atmosphere. Whether sitting outside with a beer, having a great breakfast prepared by staff in a kitchen you can use yourself, or just relaxing on the... More
