I was there for the new year so the price was high. Thus I can't give high score for the value for money. Otherwise, the hostel was perfect. Nice staff, good location, and clean- pretty much everything that one can ask for.

Of course! We remember you! We had a great time here for the new year eve. We always appreciate guest like you and most of the guest of that days. Very social, kind and friendly! Hope to see you soon, of course with normal rate now jajaja. Best Regards!


Very basic hostel with very little on offer and although it is close to the bus station, it is a decent walk to the city center. Our private room wasn't cleaned once over the 5 nights we were there and the reception opening hours are not very accommodating for travellers who need to catch the early morning or late night buses which head out to othere major cities.

Hi Adam, as you say, this is a hostel, not a Hotel. The rooms only have a clean up when your stay is over, this is not a Hotel. Or if you stay more than a week you can have cleaning per week. Receptions opens from 8am to 22pm wich is all day to communicate anything that you cannot do in other hours. And we find this rating out of place. Specially you. You never talk to the staff when you needed to check out morning. And you decide just go and not pay your stay, wich is a crime here in Chile. Now it's all set. But we could call the police for this situation.


This is a good hotel if you want an inexpensive private hotel room in Valpo with your own bathroom. It is a quite hotel which is good if want to party in the town but keep it quite at the hotel. A good communal area etc. I ended up staying 13 nights as Valpo is a good city with some gear bars and clubs

There was never enough breakfast for all the guests staying there, and we were never able To find the staff after we checked in to ask any questions. The whole hostel is really cold. None of the bathrooms were restocked with toilet paper. Showers were awesome and hot. Close to the bus terminal, far from everything else.


Positive: friendly staff, our own keys for access, nice shared living area, clean bathroom, large room Negative: only shutters on the deck doors meant lot of light came in the room,the street was v loud (w ear plugs ok), noise of animals (cats? Rats?) in the roof running around at night, cracks in the floor in our room let catfood smell from the shop below in, 20-30mins walk to main area (ok for an walk though).


Only stayed here for a night due to the proximity to the bus station. Lady on reception was very helpful and even offered to get up early to serve us breakfast before the usual time as we had an early bus!


Great hostel with nice rooms. Location is a bit of a walk to the old town but not too far and on the plus it's a short walk from the bus station which is handy. Wifi is good. Showers are hot and powerful.


Good facilities and very nice welcome. Excellent location.


Great hostel. Staff are really friendly and informative. Nice and close to the bus terminal. The hostel was pretty quiet but that was to be expected as it's not in the main backpacker area however it's easy to get to all the tourist spots from there.


Hostel close to bus terminal but everything else is on the other side of town.


B-Side hostel is located in centre of the town making it perfect to discover both Valparaiso and Vina. The house is a lovely colonial building with tall rooms catching the old charm of Valpo. Dorms are not too crowded and it is cool enough even in the summer. Atmosphere is more than a great good for backpac - no curfew - no bullshit. What makes this the best hostel in Valpo is however the staff -Roberto and Katy (chill as hell) are just simply the perfect owners making you feel really welcommed.


The owners were very nice to me and very helpful, told me everything about the city and even invited all the guests for a Christmas dinner. The rooms are allright, but there is only one male shower. The city bus station is just a couple of blocks away, but the downtown and the main tourist attractions are in the opposite end of Valparaiso


Great to tea and coffee available all day but refuse to buy milk for breakfast
