“Highly recommend”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2014

I was here for 10 days or so, and had a very nice single room at the back of the hostel. It was spacious, very comfy bed and plenty of storage. My only criticism would have been not being able to hang anything.
Everything was clean and tidy, and the shared bathroom didn't cause too much of a problem in terms of waiting to use the shower.
The staff were all really friendly and helpful. I had to leave at 3am and they made a nice touch by leaving me out a breakfast of yogurt and sandwiches.
It is close to all main attractions and you don't have to negotiate through any hills or narrow streets or steps like some hostels in Valparaiso.
I would very happily stay here again for my next visit to Valparaiso. They are also renovating and adding a new dining area, so the lack of space will soon not be an issue.

A very friendly hostel, the staff took the time to talk you through what there was to do in the town. The room was nicely decorated and very comfortable, and had two helpful additions of a safe & also some very nice wine glasses in the room. Helpful for "sampling" to the local wine! My only negative comment would be that it only has one bathroom, meaning a long wait for the shower in the morning. I'd definitely recommend staying though.

I stayed two nights in angel Hostal in Valparaiso. Its a small home like place. Shared baths are kept clean. Rooms comfortable and my single room small with a window on an interior courtyard so well ventilated. Kitchen available for guest use. Small breakfast included (Chilean so grilled cheese sandwich and Nescafe). This is a typical hostal so most guests are young travelers from Europe or North America.

The staff are most helpful in how to get around in this confusing, but remarkable, city. They were very friendly and gave me some great pointers on places to eat or see. .

Room Tip: A couple rooms are dorm style. There are a couple of private rooms with the small single room very q...

We planned to stay there for 3 nights, but ended up being there for 9. The city is wonderful and when you have hostel staff commited to make you see and experience all, you just cant leave :) I read other reviews talking about lack of space, and I have to say that yes, it is not a big place. After all, there are only 2 dorm rooms, the rest are private or family rooms, therefore there are not that many people coming and going. I never ended up having to wait to use the kitchen or bathroom. The breakfast is excellent and keeps you full until mid day, and you can not beat the location on Cummings (walking distance from all the sights, bars, restaurants, the port, and very convenient to catch the bus for Vina, or the bus station). For me, though, the heart of the place is in its staff - they work overtime to make you feel at home and make the best our of your stay in the city. there is always advice, latest info on whats going on in the city, what are the best offers etc. Always a kind word and concern of your wellbeing. I appreciated it immensely and felt very much at home.

This hostel is about the size of a shoebox. When the dorms are full, there is no room to move & you are jumping over bags. The kitchen has room for a maximum of about 3 people to stand in. However, worst of all is that there is no real communal space.
There are a couple of 2 seater couches & a 1 seater directly outside the dorms with a small coffee table in the middle. This means that everyone who is cooking basically has to stand or sit on the floor to eat their food. Also, being right outside the dorms, if even anyone at all is still awake & talking the noise carries loudly if you re trying to sleep.
On top of this, there is only 2 toilets & only 1 shower for the entire hostel including the privates, so if you want a shower you usually have to line up & wait outside the door.
On a plus, the staff are very friendly and accommodating, but overall this hostel is just a second floor apartment converted into a tiny hostel for 20 or so people.

Stayed for one night only as that was the original plan. Yet, after check-in and full explanation of what to do and where to go in Valparaiso by the owners, we were tempted to stay for another night.

Common area is smallish yet sufficient, and you get to talk with other travelles which is always a plus. The breakfast was tea or coffee, cerrals with milk, yoghurt and cheese toast. The PC's and WiFi worked perfectly.

Staff is friendly, rooms are spacey and clean, you have enough blankets if you need them (Chile is quite cold county at nights with single layered windows almost everywhere...), and bathroom was cealn with hot water. Two toilets, of which the other in the bathroom.

I would recommend this hostel to anyone visiting Valparaiso.
