Hostal Newka Cerro Alegre
Reviewed April 8, 2014

This is one of the best hostels I've been. A friend recommended it and I recommend it as well to all of Valparaíso visitors. It has a perfect location in Cerro Alegre from which you can walk everywhere. It is very homely and you soon feel home. It has great views and great staff who is always open to answer your queries and give you tips about the city.

This hostel made our Valparaiso experience even better! Beautiful friendly owner who was patient with our terrible Spanish and plays awesome music throughout the day. Free maps, tea and coffee all day and all the spaces are well equipped and super clean all the time. Our beds were comfortable in a spacious dorm with beautiful views out of the window. The rooftop space has incredible views of Valparaiso and the harbour across to Vina del Mar. The hostel is also in a great location just up the hill from the best empanadas in Chile and a bunch of tourist attractions are just around the corner. We had hot water all of the time and the bathroom was always stocked. Wonderful hostel - do stay here if you visit Valparaiso :-)

I stayed in a 6 bedroom dorm for 4 nights at this hostal. The hostal is in a great location, 2 minutes walk from two of Valparaiso's major attractions and one of best deep fried empanada eatries in Valparaiso. The hostal owner was very friendly, he showed us through the hostal when we arrived. He has free maps and tourrist vouchers. The hostal has spacious dorms with amazing views. A good kitchen and very good bathrooms. Hot showers and good rooftop lounge. The hostal is quiet an very clean. I would definately stay there again.

Mucho Gracias

As the title says, this is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in (and I've stayed in quite a few by now).

The hostel is perfectly located on Cerro Alegre and is just around the corner from one of the furniculars that take you up the hill (so convenient when you don't want to walk and the furnicular is only 100 clp!)
The rooms are big and spacious with an amazing view! The bathrooms as well are big and clean with plenty of hot water. And the rooftop is absolutely amazing and it's a great hangout place to enjoy a drink and the view.

The owner is chilean and is ready to help with any questions or doubts and will happily help you get to Viña or other nearby places. On our last day our bus left Valpo at 21.30 and even though we checked out that morning he let us leave our bags in the hostel all day so we could go to the beach!

Best hostel in Valpo. Enough said. :)

Room Tip: The doors have no locks tho and there's no lockers either. But I have stayed in other hostels ar...

Stayed two nights in this hostel and really enjoyed it. It's a place with own character and fits perfectly in this climatic part of Valpo. Hugo, the owner, is super friendly, helpful and puts great music on. The only downside is that there are no locks on room doors.
