One of the best places I stayed on my travels. Kent knows how to make you feel at home away from home. Highly recommended place to stay.


We loved this authentic hostel and the amazing atmosphere in it. The bbq and the view are terrific. We hope they saw the money we left for the room as there were no one when we had to check out this morning.


Great wifi, roof terrace, 2 kitchens and laundry facilities. Only issues were that the owner wasn't there when we arrived so we were unable to check in for a while, and occasionally we were left waiting outside the main door because no one answered the bell. The location had a great view but being on top of a hill meant a big climb after each outing. When we booked we got some helpful travel instructions but the bus driver took us to the wrong place despite us asking him to tell us the stop.


The beautiful view and Kent are the best the best attributes of this host! Everyone was enjoying themselves...


Great Hostel, individually designed by the owner. Many bathroom facilities which are new and clean. Lots of kitchen space. Free laundry. Fantastic view from the roof terrace.


Hostel mariposas is the best hostel we've ever been! The view from the terrace is incredible and the friendly atmosphere makes you feel like at home. The owner can tell you everything you want to know about chile, the city and travelling arround the world. And much more. You will definitly never regret your choice!!! Thx kent!


Interesting, nice place where ou feel free and just enjoy time


I think this is the first time I've ever left an online review for anything, but this place deserves it. Spent more than a week here and it could have easily been longer; almost certainly the best hostel experience I've ever had. Thanks Kent and Jamie!

Great hostel! The owner is super friendly and very helpful. It's an awesome setup and a great atmosphere.


A delightful place to stay. Very relaxing informal and friendly. Fantastic rooftop views.


This hostel is one of the best I've ever stayed in and probably the most fondly-remembered from my entire trip to South America. The staff were amazing - inspiring even - with how friendly they were and the two buildings they operate from are ridiculously awesome. The place is a slight pain to get to from town, but that's because it's so beautifully situated in Los Cerros. Well done guys, this hostel is increyible!


Maybe not all will be perfect for a 10, but this place deserves one big 10 for the originality, for the perfect location with a perfect terrace and a wonderful view over the city, for the best barbeque and atmosphere in city and especially for the best hosts. Thank you Kent and Jamie! PS: Ask Kent the story about the weird job ever :-))


We loved this hostel! Very clean, so friendly, and AMAZING view!! There are tons of stairs to get to the hostel from the flat, but it is so worth it :) We loved the hammocks on the roof top and the BBQ. We had a private room, and it was perfect. for us.


Amazing stay in this hostel. Unique environment on cerro Mariposa. Lovely welcome from the owner, amazing view on Valparaiso and for the firework. 10 minutes walking from the center by stairs. 2 kitchens. Stay there this place is unique and different from all you saw before. Thank you Kent, Karolina, and Jammie
