Stayed for one night while passing through Valparaiso. Enjoyed my stay at Casa Volante as, although worn, the hostel had a charm about it that suited the timelessness of the town rather well. Communal bathrooms were always clean, with a small kitchen area and gratis fruit/coffee. Location was very central within the district of Conception, the main tourist area and within several minutes walk to both the harbour and the quaint art shops/cafés/restaurants. Staff were always attentive and helpful. I arrived at 7am before the hostel opened and even the non-English speaking cleaning guy Federico was very helpful, using a translation tool on the internet to converse with me. Only thing to be wary of is that early in the morning and at night, muggings can happen; I was pre-warned by the taxi driver dropping me off of this and also met a German girl who had her bag snatched at 11pm, although this sort of thing can happen anywhere at these times. In the daytime, no problems. I would recommend this hostel for travellers to Valparaiso.
