It was clean, the breakfast was everything they say it is, the best in South America, and it's served till late. The staff is very nice, although not all of them spoke english. They would suggest things to do in Valparaiso. The Cerro Concepcion is filled with amazing street art, bars, cafés restaurants and culture, and the hostel is in... More

I stayed in a double room with a shared bedroom. Everything was in order. The guy in the front desk was really good with directions, what to do and visit in Valparaíso (special mention to the free walking tour by Wally). Clean place, nice breakfast. A very advisable place.

This hostel has clearly had bedbugs for at least a couple of months, and they´re disgustingly in denial about it. Even one of the girls who WORKS there has bites, and denies that they´re bed bug bites. Several people in my room got bites, and I can see from previous photos that this has been going on since at least... More

Casa Valparaiso is located centrally in Cerro Concepcion, just above the port meaning you have pretty much everything on your doorstep, which is a great place to start. The welcome was friendly and from my experience, the hostel seems to attracts a good mix of people. The communal area is sufficiently sized for the guests with a decent kitchen for... More

I've spent weeks at Casa Valparaiso and it is one of my favorite hostels in the world. Why? Because the staff/owners really make you feel like you're part of their family. The hostel has room for about 22 people. With the building layout, everyone has the opportunity to meet each other and hang out. You feel comfortable and happy here.... More

Everytime I want to escape to Valparaiso this is where I go. I've stayed 3 times here over the course of 2 years and all have been great. It's a hostel but not a party hostel, it's fun within an atmosphere of respect for fellow travelers. I've met some great like minded travelers here and the breakfasts are awesome! more... More

Cool hostel in awesome location, amazing murals and artwork in the area and really safe. Has a great lounge common room style where everyone hangs out together. Downstairs shower is terrible but upstairs shower is good. Cool staff always willing to help. fully recommend.

I stayed there with a friend for NYE 2011/2012 and we had a blast there! We came across this hostel on hostelworld as one of the last one with free beds (Valpo is very popular on NYE) and we were happily surprised. On our arrival, we struggle to find it but when we got to know Valpo we realised it... More
