I stayed at B Side House for 3 days during the new years and was a terrible experience. The location is bad, 20 minutes walking from the more tourist part where most hostels are. The staff although friendly, did not know anything about the city and main tourist attractions. The house is old, so the floor is noisy, and the staff walk during the entire night. The bathroom had many problems. The WiFi didn't worked when many people try to connect. The price that we paid for the new year was expensive and we had a horrible experience. Do not recommend.

Valparaíso no es muy grande y para quienes no puedan caminar más de 20 minutos, la ciudad ofrece pintorescas alternativas de transporte tales como Trolebuses y funiculares además de los clásicos microbuses.

Por otra parte nuestro personal está altamente calificado, Son Guias Turisticos certificados nacidos en Valparaíso por lo que estarán felices de mostrarle siempre los lugares mas famosos como también aquellos que se esconden entre cerros y escaleras.

El establecimiento es una casa patrimonial que data del año 1926 y fue remodelada hace 3 años por lo que las instalaciones como baños por ejemplo son nuevas.

Sin duda año nuevo es una fecha ruidosa y de mucho tránsito ya que la gente celebra con alegría hasta altas horas de la madrugada como lo acostumbran muchas culturas.

Valparaíso ofrece uno de los espectáculos de año nuevo más grandes de América Latina por lo que la ciudad recibe sólo esa noche a mas de 1.5 millón de visitantes, lo que produce el colapso de muchos servicios entre ellos la conexión a Internet, que fue lo que esa noche pasó en gran parte de la ciudad.

De igual forma invitamos a todos nuestros futuros huéspedes a comparar precios antes de elegir el lugar de estadía y evaluar si vale la pena pagar un poco más por estar en la zona turística o si están dispuestos a caminar y conocer la ciudad y su gente. Ah! y si es en año nuevo donde hay una altísima demanda reservar con meses de anticipación.

Invitamos a todos nuestros huéspedes a que nos comuniquen sus inquietudes en el momento en que las tengan así podremos resolverlas de la mejor manera. B SIDE HOUSE es un hostal nuevo y crece día a día con la colaboración de nuestros huéspedes amigos.

This hostel is gorgeous. It's new and clean and spacious. My husband and I stayed here in a private room with our own bathroom, the rooms are basic but we don't need a lot. We had wifi in our room, they do laundry for you at a cost and breakfast was great. When we stayed it was very quiet and not a lot of people around to be sociable with, there were also families with children staying there. However we were looking for a quiet hostel and had been recommend this place. It isn't right in the heart of everything but we didn't mind walking and getting the buses. The staff spoke great english and were very helpful. Would stay here again and would recommend.

Hostel was pretty quiet when we stayed there as it was still low season. The hostel is relatively new so all the rooms are clean and well maintained including the bathroom and kitchen. Fairly good price as well. Apparently the area is a bit dodgy so not recommended for walking about at night especially if you're travelling on your own.

B-Side hostel is a fairly new hostel just opened up and is an excellent value for money.
It is spacious, cosy, feels homely, very clean, friendly amazing staff who are extremely helpful and knowledgable. The kitchen was perfect and clean. It also has a balcony.
The hostel is located just a short 5 minute walk from the bus terminal in Valparaiso. We had to carry heavy bags and was not a problem due to the short distance.
There is a lovely antique and vintage market just a few minutes from the hostel. You can find everything. It was fantastic.
Everything you require is only short walk away including supermarkets, bank and local bus stops to get around.
The staff were very accomodating and able to communicate in English very well.
There isnt anything i could complain about.
They have clear wifi signal and able to use throughout the hostel. They also have a computer for you to use if needed.
The breakfast included cereal, yoghurt pots, tea and coffee and sandwich.
The kitchen is fully equipped including an electric kettle which is handy.
I thouroughly enjoyed my stay at B-Side hostel and i would highly recommend it to anyone.

Thank you for a lovely stay.
