I went to this hostel with my mom and my 14 years old brother. The staff was really really helpful! They are super friendly and will try to make you satisfied. There is free tea, coffee, milk and season fruits the whole day. The best thing about this hostel was the bath, the toillet was really clean and the shower was awesome! We could take a hot bath, while in the Ibis hotel my friend was taking cold shower.
The localization is good, it is close to the main touristic places. The only problem we had was the noisy neighborhood, we coudln't sleep, but it was not the hostel's fault. Don't scare when you arrive in the street of the hostel, it is strange, but it has de town's charm. You will get used to it :)

Went there with my two teens, we had a lovely room with shared bathroom, all clean and in good working order, bedding and towels nice too. I loved the location, in the middle of the most interesting part of town for me... safe even at night. The ladies there provided a map and heaps of advice on where to go, where to eat etc. \Empanadas La Pato the best we tried in Chile ever! Also easy access, as we arrived from Santiago by bus and then if you take another local bus for a few minutes just a couple of blocks uphill and you are there. Easy access with backpacks!
Would recommend it and go there again happily.

We loved our stay in Casa Volante. From the start to the finish the staff were super friendly and helpful.

The rooms were great, large and beds comfortable with lots of blankets.

The kitchen was well equipped for cooking meals and they provide tea, coffee and fruit all day instead of offering breakfast.

The hostel was always very clean and secure. They also do a laundry service for a good price.

The only con was it could have been a bit warmer. Our room had a heater and was warm but the common areas got cold at night and you had to layer up to hang out there.

Other than that it had a perfect location right in the heart of it without the walk to the top of the hill like other hostels.

Good for value for this hostel well located in the center of Valparaiso and quite cheap.
People are very nice and give you plenty of useful information on valparaiso, what to do and what to see.
However be careful no real breakfast available when we were there, but fruits, tea and coffee are complimentary and you can make your breakfast with that.
Our room was a bit dark (despite the very bright picture shown here) and the heater is not very performant ( but you have plenty of blanket so you don't get cold).

Gaby, Rene and the entire staff are some of the friendliest and funniest people we have met during our visit to Valparaiso. Perfectly located, clean, well equipped kitchen. Wanted to stay longer but they were full to capacity. Thank you Gaby for helping us find alternative accommodations and to all the staff for being such welcoming hosts.

It was great help and advise I got at Hostel Casa Volante. It is very well located in the middle of Concepción and Alegre and reachable by walking (no elevator nor bus every time). It was quiet enougn, but the birds in the morning might get upset. The TV room is not so big, but why would you stay in in Valparaiso? There was no breakfast at itself, we were allowed free fruits and Te/Coffee, so I walked to a nearby store to have some bread, butter and cereal. However, free fruit saved my day.
The place is clean, quiet at night so as to sleep well. Very recomended

Hola Ignacio,

Muchisimas gracias por tu dedicado comentario y por la buena vibra que nos mandas con el. Creemos que tu descripcion respecto de nuestra ventajosa ubicacion da en el clavo, y por lo mismo incluiremos esos conceptos en nuestras descripciones. Lamentablemente las gaviotas del techo son mas antiguas que nosotros en la casa, asi que no nos sentimos con el derecho a sacarlas, jajaja. ademas, seria muy dificil ya que estamos a 200 metros del mar... y por ultimo, son ella las que dieron nombre a nuestro proyecto, y quien sabe si algun dia toman la casa en andas y nos llevan volando a quien sabe donde.

un abrazo grande y nos vemos cuando quieras!

This is a great place to chill while taking in all the touristic sights around valparaiso. The reception staff were very knowledgable about the area. The toilets were clean, private (could all be locked) and well equipped. I would stay there again if I went back to valparaiso.

Only downside is that the whole building creaks when you walk around, can get very noisy while everyone is settling for bed, but this is only marginal.
