We booked a twin room which was good with a desk and a chair, a cabinet where you can put your clothes. There is no window but a door with glasses so you still have daylight. We saw other twins that were bigger and with window. Shared bathrooms are good too. No towels. You can use the laundry washing machine...

My wife and I had a fantastic and accommodating stay at Hostel Los Gaviotines on New Years Eve. I highly recommend this hostel in beautiful Valparaiso. The hostel is well situated for exploring the city, riding the various funiculars, and being close to the heart of the action.

I spent one week in a single room on the first floor and was extremely happy with the place. The place is perfectly run by host Jaime, who is like a father to his guests, and a calm and kind person. My room was simple, functional and clean. Eveything was working, no damages, no bad smell, no creepy crawlies. Bathrooms...

I loved my time in this hostel! It's got a great atmosphere, and the owner, Jaime is welcoming and helpful. It's mostly college students, some local some from abroad. Great location. Close enough to places you'll want to see or to transportation to get there. There's wi-fi, hot showers, laundry and the rooms are clean. Very cutely decorated. And cheap,...

I stayed with Jaime at Gaviotines for a month. The house is beautiful, all the rooms open up to a central patio and kitchen area. The place attracts quite of few chilean university students who come to Valparaiso from elsewhere. I thought this was a really nice change of pace from other hostels with only gringos. The owner, Jaime, is...

Where do I begin? This place is incredible! Hostel Los Gaviotines is all the vibrant colour, sounds and flavour of Valparaíso within the walls of a single building. It feels like home but the many rooms and living spaces ~dining room, TV room and three outdoor patios {!} make it feel like a small bohemian village. I will never forget...
