The staffs were very nice but the hostel was kind of old and noisy. It was written that the price includes a breakfast (from 8.30 to 10.30am) but at 9.30 am, nobody was awake because they went out the night before... That means no breakfast finaly...

The staff here are really friendly and go out of their way to help you out. We stayed in a double bed room, it was basic but clean. The hostel is in a good area, where there are lovely little cafes and restaurants nearby. The bathrooms were kept clean, however the shower wasn´t that hot (in between warm and cold)... More

The breakfast is the best I ever had in a hostel: they bake delicious wholegrain bread every night for next morning's... More

We stayed at Hostal Acuarela for New Year's Eve 2010. Valpo is the place in Chile for New Year's and pretty much everywhere has special super-expensive prices. Acuarela was excellent value for this in demand period. They made a real effort to make the big night special, dinner for all the guests, then champagne on the roof terrace, with an... More

The guys on reception are really nice but dont speak much english but do make an effort. There are not a lot of rooms which makes it nice... More

My bf and I spent the New Year's eve in Valparaiso and found this cute Hostel with the most amazing view over the bay. The owner's are really nice, they even organized a midnight barbecue for all the guests staying that night in their hostel. The owner's are a young couple full of energy and enthusiasm. Everything was clean, the... More
