We stayed here for 2 nights in March in a private double en-suite. The room was comfortable, with lovely high ceilings but is in need of a little TLC. It's definitely got character in bucket loads but felt a little rundown. The reception area however is completely the opposite and is beautifully finished with great vintage touches. The breakfast is... More

With no doubt, one of the very best hostels I've ever been to. The house is gorgeous, the stuff is super king and the room they gave us was quite big, with great decoration and very full of style. I found it to be a bit pricy, but worth it in the overall.

I landed at La Colombina by chance after having knocked almost all Valparaiso's hostels doors. By chance there was a bed available in the room. Luck! It was easter 2012 but I didn't took that in account while planning to visit Valparaiso, that's why it has been so hard to get a bed. The staff has been super. Always kind... More

Made a reservation a few days before the intended stay and payed half the sum with my credit card. The agreement was that if the reservation was cancelled within certain time the payment should be fully credited and returned to my account. I cancelled the reservation well in time as our travel plans were changed. But the money was never... More

Just spent New Year´s Eve in this charming little Hostel. We were a group of 10, so they gave us 3 rooms in one wing of the place that had a private terrace overlooking the port, where Chile´s biggest firework´s show takes place. The rooms were comfortable and clean, good beds, nice sheets. Our room had a private bathroom, but... More

I have two complaints, and they're pretty minor. 1) The hostel kitchen was lacking in plates, but I think it's partly because people steal them, and I don't think the hostel can be blamed for that. 2) I don't know if I was supposed to bring my own towel--and I wish it would have been mentioned somewhere if I was--but...

Hostal Colombina is awesome!  The place is owned by the amazingly vibrant Señora Carmen who runs the hostel with her daughters. They are very accommodating and will see to it that you have the best experience in valparaiso possible.  The rooms are all nice, kitchen, patio, and lookout are all great!  This is really one of the best and most...

The owner who serves breakfast in the neighboring restaurant was the sweetest lady ever. The rooms were huge. the shared bathroom was also very clean. I loved the location.

Really wanted to let people know that this is a great little hostel run by a lovely women and a bunch of friendly & enthusiastic people. Apparently it used to be hotel and has now become a hostel - very nice old building, high ceilings, great shower, kitchen, rooftop & a very delicious breakfast. Will be staying here again soon!
