Good place, Difficult to find - the taxi drivers don't know how to find it, an dump you at the top of the stairs, rather than the bottom street. It is not easy to find -Need a bigger sign.
From the station/ cruise terminal/ bus terminal, then catch the trolleybus for $1, rather than a taxi etc. Email the Hostal and they will tell you how. From Santiago airport, do the public transport - bus is $few, and good and easy (change of bus required at a terminal near the airport - just ask) compared to the ridiculous taxi fare.
Positioned really easy and central to see the best of Valparaiso. excellent supermarket nearby, and good eating joints around. We are so pleased to have chosen days there over spending more days in Santiago. Walk through to the centre, up the street-art-covered hill, or across to follow the shoreline.
Staff have good English, good event and knowledge of local interest , and are easy on the eye!
Relaxed place, internet available. It attracts good interesting travellers. A Bohemian area, with interest on every street as you walk around.
