The hostal is not very comfortable and clean and the owner is never here. However, you feel at home, you can cook and do laundry, meet people. The owner work at the shop in front of the hostal (must know that before coming)

This place is a 5 minute walk from the bus station, it was great to walk and not get ripped off in a cab! It's a short/easy trolley ride to the main centre, our room was lovely with lots of pillows and quilts to keep us warm. Nice and quiet as well to relax after a long day exploring beautiful...

We stayed at Hostal NuevaMente, Vaparaiso, Chile for 3 nights, and it was our good and happy time.

The hostal kitchen is equipped with everything, needed for cooking. Alvaro had...

So this is one of the cheaper hostels in Valparaiso, but not a place I would choose to stay for any length of time. We were there for three nights. When we arrived, the hostel was deserted. No staff, no guests. The front door was open so we sat and waited for twenty minutes before the owner turned up (he...

Stayed here over new year eve. Lovely house and friendly relaxed owner, who let's you go as you come and please. Our twin room had no window so got quite hot, so maybe ask for a room with a window. Location is walkable from bus station (email the hostal before arriving to get a pdf map) and so easy, quick...

The good things first: The hostel has a good location really close to the bus terminal and it is owned and managed by a super nice guy. The prices are fair for Valparaíso and the old house has a special charm. However, especially the kitchen and the bathrooms need to be renovated. I am sure the 2010 earthquake hit the...

Gustavo, the owner of Nuevamente truly loves his job. We arrived late, and when I called to tell him we were behind schedule at the border, he told me not to worry, to be patient and have fun! He waited up for us, and then ordered us a midnight pizza so we wouldn't have to go look for open restaurants....

Gustva the owner is just the best - he was so kind and lovely and even helped us book air plane tickets on a Chilean website as we couldn't read the Spanish. He gave us good tips on what bus to take to see Valparaiso so we didn't have to organise a tour, answered all our questions, advised us where...
