Me and my wife spent only one night at Kalagen Hostel. The price was reasonable and accommodations were simple but fit exactly in our needs, a private room with two beds and shared bathroom. The service is fine, staff are very friendly and helpful, everything looked impressive cleaned, even the shared bathroom which is a huge problems in other Hostels.... More

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.
