The hostel is really nice but we stayed in a new part where the floor was waxed with some chemical so it smelled quite bad the whole time. Also our breakfast was in the new part and not with the others in the cosy and lively main building. That was a little sad.
Good location . Friendly staff . Close to touristy places.
Great location and value for the cost. We were 3 of us girls and we signed up for a 4-person room, but they bumped us up to a 3-person room so we'd have our own, at no extra cost. Very nice! We were greeted by Marcelo who was super helpful and friendly. Music and wine set a lovely scene in the evenings. Bathrooms were a little underwhelming and cramped. Our second night there were a few families with many kids running around.. so that was a bit odd/loud early in the morning but oh well!
we stayed for only 2 nights, two receptionists were very good, gave us lot of tips about where to go for food, entertainment, safety tips etc. one guy sitting later that day was kind of clueless. But overall a good stay, the facilities were clean and well kept, the location was central and we walked everywhere.
Absolutely loved this hostel, would say it was the best on our south america trip. The hostel is clean, beds are amazing- feels like home and pillows are high quality. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming; particular gabi the manager. The hostel hosts social nights which i didnt go to as i had plans, but the food looked great and everyone seemed to enjoy. Wanted to stay longer but booked out :( the bfast was delish. Definitely recommend this hostel!!
Overall our stay was nice.I would recommend this hostel for travellers without high expectations. At times it was difficult to get bathroom as there were only three but they were kept quite clean. The kitchen was nice and it was also kept clean.
Excellent breakfast......percolated coffee, yoghurt, rolls. Missed the steps off the street initially because Fischer Passage is not marked..... Very quiet at night - perfect ! Communal area was a good place to chat to other travellers.
The hostel is very well located near in the heart of the must-see neighborhood and near to main square and harbour. Good breakfast, good advice from the staff, comfortable beds, well equiled kitchen pleasant common area although a little cold. I totally recommend it.
Really nice place to stay right in the mix of things. Close to touristic & bohemian areas of the city but also within walking distance to downtown and the waterfront/metro train. The space was nicely designed and had excellent security. The beds were comfortable and had individual outlets for charging devices, a nice touch.
Loved staying here. Great location, super cool building. Staff was lovely, tailored recommendations to us. Big, open dorms with great views. Having our own kitchen on the second floor was a plus. We were there on a Friday and partook in a Chilean BBQ which was great. Had a great time with the people we met. Only negative comments-- silence in common areas from midnight to 7am, bathrooms and kitchens could have been cleaner.
Room and area was cute. Typical breakfast. Only problem was that our room smelled bad. I'm not sure why, but it didn't go away for the entire 24 hours we were there. Smelled a little like manure. Everything was clean, but just smelly.
Decent breakfast and good location to walk around to see the murals and explore valpo
Clean hostel, amazing breakfast, perfect location. Although the dorms wwre not too big, this is not a significant disadvantage. In addition, polite staff and good wifi. I would stay again!
Awesome hostel and the people are very welcoming. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Good showers, great breakfast, amazing hostel!
A great cozy hostel with some of the best beds we have slept in. The hostel has good wifi, great staff and the free fruit all day is a nice touch. The location in good, not in the center of the madness, but close enough if that is what you are looking for. Gaby is a superstar!
Hostel was nice and security very good. Location is perfect, close to everything. Staff is nice, kitchen is good, breakfast very nice, free fruit, coffee & tea all day was such a surprise! Social area is a little small but it's very cosy and nice! Beds are good as well! Would definitely recommend this hostel, liked it!
