“The only place to stay in Valaparaiso”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2010

This is one of the best hostels we have stayed in South America. The owner Alejandro and his wife Karen are great hosts. They were so helpful and informative about Valaparaiso and Vina del Mar. The breakfast is brilliant, beautiful Colombian coffee, fruit,eggs,toasted cheese sandwiches and fresh bread. They have two guest kitchens for cooking and a really comfy tv room with lots of dvds. We had a private bathroom with a really comfy bed. We had to share a bathroom but all the bathrooms are cleaned thoroughly each morning. Alejandro was very kind and booked our bus tickets to our next destination on his own credit card. Their friend Bobby does a really nice walking tour of Valaparaiso.

This hostel has real character to it. It´s in an old building and has a beautiful courtyard at the back, perfec t for chilling out during the day or eating dinner at night. Breakfast is included in the price and is really good. It´s clean, quiet and in a good location in the old town, close to nic e bars and restaurants. Staff here are amazing.
