Tonstart with the vest, the view from their doorm is one of the best I've seen from a hotel room anywhere. And that in a town with as beautiful views as Valparaiso. Enjoyed my stay there very much, great room, good beds, nice bathroom, good kitchen, pleasant community room with oven and a helpful staff. Excellent choice and a great... More

We stayed here for two nights and were mostly very impressed with the hostel. Firstly, the building itself is lovely, and very well situated. The double room was pleasant enough, and the shared bathroom did the job. The kitchen was a definite high point - well equipped and definitely the nicest we've had in South America. The common area was... More

I stayed at Acuarela while traveling solo in South America. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful in booking bus tickets, explaining what to do and to see in valparaiso ! The house in which the hostel is located is charming with wooden panels, a forged-iron staircase and a cute little terrace perfect to chill with a drink! Very tidy... More

'Best hostel in South America' might seem like a big statement, but we really felt that to be the vase for Hostal Acuarela. We arrived here wanting to stay for 2 nights, and one week later and we still don't know when we will leave. The location of the hostel is ideal, as it is situated in one of the... More

We have just stayed here for three nights and loved the place. The guy working there said that it was under new management, as of just a week ago. I wasn't quite surely the set up - there seemed to be three of them running it (perhaps they have bought the place together) -but all the guys were really friendly... More

This is great if you want the real Valparaiso experience. I stayed there and fell in love with the city and the hostel. Really laid back, you feel like you live there. You get an idea of the culture and meet the locals. Friends of the owner (artists and homeowners) came by and chatted to me and gave me good... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in October 2012. We stayed in a 5 bed dorm, but as we are a group of 4 we had the whole place to ourselves. The beds were warm and comfortable, although oen of our group felt the duvet was a bit smelly and hadn't been washed in a while! The strange thing about... More

Looking for something a bit smaller and quieter than the widely publicised hostels, we found Hostel Acuarela in a charming Valparaiso neighbourhood. Upon entering the hostel, we knew it would be perfect for us. There is a small communal area with computer to access the internet, a dining area and a country kitchen with granite benchtops and a handy dishdrainer... More
