Overall a good hostel except that our bed (private double room 2) was extremely noisy anytime you even slightly moved...
Just great, I think one of the best hostels where I've been, everything clean, secure and great staff.
they have free fruit and real (!) coffee all day long. Really comfy (!) beds. In the morning when I needed to leave, the front door was locked, so i had to look for the key at the reception desk which was not occupied... Besides that incidence, everything was really great
The hostel was ok, but not as shown in the pictures. It is a lot smaller than it appears to be. The bathroom wasn't very clean. It's very chill, don't stay there if you expect meeting people. The staff was nice and the location is great tough. I would stay there again.
Pros: Nice common areas and beds. Have REAL COFFEE with proper coffee makers and leaf teas. Cons: Hot water in only one shower. No breakfast. Still a good choice.
The dorm beds were great! Very wide, with cozy comforters. While breakfast is not provided, you have access to unlimited fruit and coffee/tea. I was able to make expresso in the morning, which was a treat after all the instant coffee in South America. Enjoyable atmosphere- would highly recommend!

Great, low-key hostel - beautiful location, decent-sized beds in the dorms, hot water in the bathrooms, decent coffee, and a consistent wifi connection.
Brief stay in a private double room. Located near the base of Cerro Concepcion, only a few blocks from many bars and restaurants. Small facility. No breakfast included. We luckily stayed on a BBQ night and, with the aid of copious amounts of wine, befriended many good people. Receptionist was very friendly and knowledgeable.
Only strayed one night but had a great time and met some great people. Staff are really friendly and helpful. They have a BBQ one night of the week and the food is good, with wine and a great way to meet other people in the hostel.
I had a great stay at Casa Volante! Location is excellent for exploring cerro Conception and cerro Allegre! Area felt secure and staff opened the door personally for each guest to make sure no unwanted people could enter the hostel. Very cosy (and clean!) atmosphere and common areas, and friendly staff. Muchas gracias, I would definitely stay here again!
We only stayed one night, so I cannot say to much. Staff was friendly, rooms were clean ;-)
Casa Volante was great! The staff was very helpful, especially with checking about the border crossing into Argentina. Fruit available all the time was nice, as was the coffee and tea, especially since it didn't seem like anywhere was going to include breakfast. Location is great, walkable to everything. Laid back atmosphere, communal table facilitated conversations. Under bed lockers fit a ton but are horribly annoying to use, mine kept getting stuck under the bed or would block the door.
It is very nice hostel with very good location and very friendly staff that is ready to help anytime needed. The rooms and the bathrooms were very clean. Well-organized common area to socialize with other guests. Very good value for what I paid.
Nice hostel in a central location. The staff are very welcoming and helped us book some more nights with another hostel when they were sold out. I liked the free fruit concept. We had a double off of the right wing of the house. The room was warm and quiet. Would stay here again if visiting Valpo
We stayed here because of the great reviews, and this place lived up to it. Most helpful staff I've come across. Great fruit bowl you can help yourself to all day long. Bathrooms were spotless and the showers were hot. Just a phenomenal hostel. Can't recommend enough. Plus REAL coffee and tea available throughout the day too.
Last minute booking, place was a little difficult to find but lovely location. Right in the heart of everything. Staff really helpful and most speak excellent english. Loads of posters around the place for lots of things to see and do. Relaxing atmosphere not really a perty hostel if thats what you want.
Awesome hostel in the coolest place I've been in South America so far. Set in the hills surrounded by street art, shops and restaurants. Staff were really helpful. Rooms and nah rooms were clean. Good wifi. You can't ask for more!!
This is very good hostel. Though it isn't on the top of the hill, but very close to it. Awesome space for common area and very friendly staff.
Very noisy during the nights as there is a cultural party center in the same building so no sleeping before 2 am.
Friendly staff, really clean and cute hostal. Near transport so easy to get to the bus terminal. Not enough bathrooms and it would be good to have a separate toilet. It was also freezing in the common places but ok in the room. Good lockers with a key for the room. Dorm had only 4 beds and good blankets. Free coffee and fruits all day I would stay here again!
