Fantastic location from which to explore Valparaiso and numerous Bars and restaurants on your doorstep. The rooms are basic but clean with high ceilings and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Gerardo gave us several tips for exploring the city and was at hand for any questions.

They checked me in at the main building in Almirante Montt and gave me an characterful cheese-shaped (a wedge of Camembert, that is) room, number 6, with a nice high ceiling in keeping with the uniquely quirky nature of Valparaiso. Later they asked me to move to the other building in Urriola, which is the "Home" part of the establishment.... More

Great location. But we were not fully satisfied with the hostel. For what we got, the price seemed too high. It was quite noisy (not only because of other guests, but even the staff were playing loud music next to our room until late at night). The kitchen was very basic. And in our room we found trash and dirty... More

Wifi only works in rooms, not in kitchen or living room. Not enough chairs. Staff is always using the kitchen and chairs therefore there is no where to go but your room. Showers and bathrooms irregularly cleaned. Annoyingly loud staff. Great location. Frustrating staff and facilities. Would not stay here again.

ONE toilet in a musty, foul, stinky bathroom. Jacaranda has NO atmosphere whatsoever. The kitchen was FILTHY when I got there and it stayed that way for several hours. The wifi signal is... More

A good option in Valparaiso. If with private room, check where you are- there are two separate sites for Jacaranda. The dorms are on main site nearby, we were in the 'guesthouse' with two charming, polite and helpful owners. Good use of kitchen, clean room, just very quiet as completely on our own. Would advise being on main site for... More
