My friend and I arrived here late one evening and that is the only reason we stayed the night. We asked for the cheapest beds (which were quite cheap) but that was a mistake. There were so many beds in the room that the poor people sleeping on the top bunks ( like myself) did not have a ladder to... More

It's a really nice place! I recommend ask for a room away from the lobby because it has music until 1:00 am! It is an awesome hostel, with breakfast, tv room and a lot of bathrooms! The hostel is in the downtown so everything is close to there!

I've been there in 5 times in I think is the best place if you want to know people from differents countries and hang out to restaurants, pubs and clubs because is located in a central area and close to the Valparaíso and other beaches. The staff is very kind. You should go there.

My girlfriend and I stayed at Hostel Kalagen and loved it! The rooms were clean, the staff was friendly and informative and the atmosphere was great. There's a nice lounge with a big screen tv and a variety of movies to choose from and watch for free! We highly recommend it and can't wait to go again when we return... More
