Lovely place; excellent location and friendly and open staff. My room had sweeping views of the Bay - worth spending a little extra for! The breakfast is fine - I like the communal breakfast room, especially as a solo traveler. Location is good; there is a funicular close-by.

Really nice and cosy place. It's not in the heart of Valparaiso but it's not a problem. Prefer the double room with a view on Valparaiso. By night its really nice. Could be a liitle bit noisy during the night.

I will agree that the staff were friendly, actually we got lost driving around the city at night and were very late arriving around midnight and they waited up for us, which was much appreciated. The breakfasts were very nice. The rooms were extremely small, had to keep all 3 of our suitcases piled on top of each other on... More

Amazing hospitality, very nice place and an incredible view on the port: enjoy it during the sunset! The breakfast was rich and very good, and the hosts gave me interesting suggestions and a free map of Valparaiso. I definitely recommend it

Valparaiso is an amazingly beautiful city, and the views from the windows of at least two of the rooms in this hostel show it off really well. The hostel itself is clean and quite basic (in a good way!), with the owners attentive without being overpowering. If you want a lovely family experience where people will do things for you... More

We spent 3 nights at the Yellow House. When booking we realized it was a bit out of the main part of the city. Though, Ana and staff were extremely helpful in helping us to get to where we wanted to go. Ana lent us a card to use on the metro to visit Viña Del Mar, called numerous restaurants... More

We recently had a lovely stay at the Yellow House. Our room was clean and comfortable with spectacular views over the city and the harbour, and we enjoyed the generous, tasty breakfasts, which set us up for each day's sightseeing. We found the staff to be very friendly, helpful and hospitable. We would certainly recommend the Yellow House to others.... More

Anna and Connie were very friendly and made us feel welcome. The breakfast they provided at a big community table was generous and good. Our room was pretty basic [mattress & bedding sure need upgrades] but had a fabulous view through huge windows [Oceana room]. Those were the good things. The biggest downside was that there was only one little... More

A lovely B&B with the most helpful and friendly staff. The place is on a hill, so make sure to book a room facing the ocean. The rooms facing the ocean has LARGE windows with very thin frames, so the view is spectacular. Very basic but well worth the price. Highly recommended!

Quirky, cosy, wonderfully friendly staff, terrific location, great views. I just wish I could have stayed for longer than one night! Will definitely come back if I ever have the chance to visit Valparaiso again.
