Really nice hostel, perfect location. In a big house with high ceilings, feels more like a home. Good hot powerful showers. Not particuarly social but not a real problem.

Very nice centrally located hostel. Quite one but in the heart of one of the nicest and most colourful spot of Valparaiso. Staff was increadibly helpful. During my stay I was unfortunately injured but the hostel owner and staff made my stay completely different. They went beyond the mile and offered some extra care! :) thank you all guys! Highly recommended!

Great hostel with perfect facilities (good kitchen, small patio, TV room, etc.). They don't serve breakfast but cereals, marmelade and butter are available: just buy your own bread or milk and you'll be fine! The best thing was a great and friendly atmosphere Easy to meet people. Bad point for the reception opening hour though: from 10am to 8pm only, which might be a problem if you get there in the morning... Otherwise, I recommend it!
Location was fab! Communal area not great - not much atmosphere, this is a chilled hostel. Clean beds very comfy. Showers ok, not quite enough of them. Security great, felt very safe. If you don't speak Spanish this may be difficult for you as the staff don't speak English! Overall good, would recommend!
A nice enough place, in a convenient area of the city - but difficult to find, and be warned if you're arriving on an overnight bus - the staff doesn't start working and the buzzer is turned off until 10am, so don't even bother trying to drop luggage. The staff is not particularly attentive or even on site for much of the day - at least the day I was working it was impossible to find the brazillian woman in charge - she left the place a mess, no toilet paper, to lounge and do her own thing.
Excellent place to stay! Especially due to of the pretty nice hosts it's worth to go and to stay. Room was very small, loud and no shelf, rack or locker inside, but didn't matter because of the amazing atmosphere in the rest of the house. Breakfast was fantastic
Beautiful house in great location on the Cerro (hill). Not much of a atmosphere, as only 'communal' area is almost like a formal lounge. My friend and I stayed here for NYE and so prices were high everywhere in Valpo and this hostel was one of the cheapest. I would probably stay elsewhere next time for more of a hostel vibe and to get breakfast included!
