Wifi only works in rooms, not in kitchen or living room. Not enough chairs. Staff is always using the kitchen and chairs therefore there is no where to go but your room. Showers and bathrooms irregularly cleaned. Annoyingly loud staff. Great location. Frustrating staff and facilities. Would not stay here again.

ONE toilet in a musty, foul, stinky bathroom. Jacaranda has NO atmosphere whatsoever. The kitchen was FILTHY when I got there and it stayed that way for several hours. The wifi signal is... More

The dorms are on main site nearby, we were in the 'guesthouse' with two charming, polite and helpful owners. Good use of kitchen, clean room, just very quiet as completely on our own. Would advise being on main site for... More

Stayed in a 4 bed dorm with my fiance. Really good location with loads of cafés and restaurants close by, extremely clean with comfortable beds. Great value compared to other hostels, I would highly recommend to other travellers.

A beautiful Hostel located in the beautiful Cerro Conception. The staff were knowledgable, wonderfully friendly and welcoming with fantastic tips for walking, eating and drinking in Valparaiso. With their help I was able to experience much more of the colour and life this town has to offer. The house itself is a beautifully decorated very well maintained old style home... More
