It's a lovely place well located in Valparaiso. The staff is nice and helpfull, and everything is really clean. Plus, I loved the design of the place. There's a kitchen to cook your own meals or plenty of restaurants in the street if you don't want to cook

As the title suggests, the Hostel is perfectly located, even for those who dread uphill walks. It's artsy, comfortable and the staff are extremely helpful and ready to offer advice at any time. I enjoyed staying there. Ps. The hot water issue has been fixed :)

This property is well located in Valparaiso and proactive in serving English speaking tourists. The sprawling converted house is located about halfway between the city centre and the top of the hill (cerro). The room we stayed in is old with two double beds so that one served as suitcase storage and sit down space. The bed we slept in... More

We had poor experience with Plaza De Armas hostel in Santiago and this one was a pleasant surprise. The location is perfect. Our room was clean and comfortable, with good soundproofing. The room and halls were decorated with owner's art work. The artist clearly has unusual vision and sense of humor. The only complain about the room was difficulties to... More

Fantastic place. Great location, helpful staff. But if you book in USD, bring them to pay with, because you wont get the best exchange rate. Rooms are big and comfy. The kitchen is more a kitchenette, and probably only good for one person at a time, but no one else really used it anyway. Rooms overlooking the street have a... More

After staying two nights at this hotel, I was inspired to read recent reviews and found to my amusement, many remarks by the management insisting that the hot water problem reported by others had been fixed. This is not true. Instead, amusing signs are placed in the bathroom, explaining that they have 'recently' installed a solar hot water system and... More

The owner Ed is a great guy, very accomodating. Gives you a printed itinerary of what to do/see in Valpo. Staff is awesome. Met some great people there, one even tagged along on our trip to Vina. Common room is very cool, chill, atmosphere. Solid location.

I stayed here for 2 nights. Breakfast was excellent. The staff at the reception is very helpful. There are nice restaurants not far from this B&B. The room I stayed in was basic, has a small TV and heater inside. The bed was comfy, that was all I needed. I recommend this place to anyone visit Val.

This is a great hostel. The large room had a flat screen TV, was heated, and very clean. The staff was helpful and friendly, and the breakfast was great (with fresh juice each morning). The only downside is low water pressure in the shower, but I can live with that. As far as hostels go, this is one of the... More
