To cut a long story short, I messed up the booking we made with La Colombina. Unfortunately I didn't realise until we arrived early in the morning on the 31st of Dec - the busiest priciest day of the year in Valparaiso. After some confusion, upset (where else would we stay!?!?) and talking with the owners, they VERY kindly found... More

Looked at a lot of hostels and b&b's but ended up deciding for this one which was a great choice, located at Cerro Concepcion close to all the "paseos" and great staff + breakfast is included and the woman who serves it will make sure you have a great experience. Definitely recommended

I have stayed a number of times at this nice hostel run by two sisters Pamela and Marcela. They are wonderful hosts and their hostel is within a lovely old patrimonial house that they are restoring. They have a mix of room sizes , with either private bathrooms or some that are shared. The location, right in the heart of... More

Good base in Concepcion to explore Valparaiso. Prime location and super friendly staff. I only had a hiccup on my first day as the staff forgot to serve breakfast, which they made up big time on the second day. I spent three nights and the room was not cleaned but that was not a big deal. Overall, very good value... More

Walking distance from everything, nice breakfast, very friendly staff, clean, and with a great reading spot on the roof overlooking the bay. The only minor caveat was that half of it is under construction, minor noise, and I didn't see a good "lounging" place to hang out. Definitely recommended.

We stayed here for 2 nights in March in a private double en-suite. The room was comfortable, with lovely high ceilings but is in need of a little TLC. It's definitely got character in bucket loads but felt a little rundown. The reception area however is completely the opposite and is beautifully finished with great vintage touches. The breakfast is... More

With no doubt, one of the very best hostels I've ever been to. The house is gorgeous, the stuff is super king and the room they gave us was quite big, with great decoration and very full of style. I found it to be a bit pricy, but worth it in the overall.

I landed at La Colombina by chance after having knocked almost all Valparaiso's hostels doors. By chance there was a bed available in the room. Luck! It was easter 2012 but I didn't took that in account while planning to visit Valparaiso, that's why it has been so hard to get a bed. The staff has been super. Always kind... More

Made a reservation a few days before the intended stay and payed half the sum with my credit card. The agreement was that if the reservation was cancelled within certain time the payment should be fully credited and returned to my account. I cancelled the reservation well in time as our travel plans were changed. But the money was never... More
