The terrace was awesome, as was the common space. Decent kitchen and really cool staff who were very helpful and fun. The location is perfect and the vibes were good. Buena onda, definitely will come back here!

Takes about 10 min by bus to get to the hostel. Hostel is based on the bottom of a hill within walking distance to the old town of Valparaíso (great bars, coffee shops and resatrants) We enjoyed the hostel a lot apart of the cold showers and the average breakfast (bread, 2 types of jam, butter and instant coffee).


Nice staff, friendly atmosphere, hot showers and good location. There is not that much space in the kitchen though, so you might have to wait if it's really crowded.


I was walking back to the hostel after buying dinner (just 2 blocks away), and was robbed. Both my iPhone & wallet were stolen from me. The girl working behind the desk was really nice to help me file a police report and gave me just enough pesos to get to the bus terminal. Other than that, the hostel itself is nice. Breakfast is the usual bread, butter, jam & some fruits. Anyways, beware of Valparaiso. It's dangerous!

Hi Karen! Valparaiso is as dangerous as any city could be. The hostel has one of the best locations as it is one of the safest places in town. One can be robbed in any place and any country. Hope you are more calm down now and keep enjoying your trip. Regards


Really nice hostel, great location and good atmosphere. Beds were comfy and didn't queue for bathrooms. Only 2 power points in an 8 bed dorm was a struggle though


It's located in a pretty good area of Valparaiso, close to the main bits. Has a good rooftop area and big communal area. Kitchen is quite small though so if you're Gordon Ramsey you might be disappointed. We liked it.


Hostal Po is a great place to stay, its in a great location and has everything you need, 4 bathrooms, 2 kitchens (kitchens are small as are 2 of the bathrooms and hot water is a bit temperamental post 11am), big bedrooms, the lounge is a great place to meet others and the roof terraces is the best. They offer free breakfast and wifi, the staff are there to help you out when needed and there is the best empanada place across the street. I'd definitely recommend a stay at Hostal Po


We had a wonderful stay at Hostel Po! It's a beautiful hostel, with wicked comfortable beds. We met a lot of awesome travelers and had a fantastic weekend! There is a ton of stuff to do nearby. As far a we wandered it seemed we were always close to Hostel Po! The showered are hot and have second water pressure!! Would definitely stay here again!

Hi Rebecca! Thanks for your comments. We are glad you enjoyed it. Hope to see you soon!


Had a really great stay here. The roof top patio is really awesome and we were able to meet a lot of super cool people. Duvets on the beds were a plus. Kitchen is quite small but well stocked. Breakfast was descent. Check out is at 12:00 which is nice.

Hi Hilary! Thanks for your comments. Hope to see you again here. Regards


Hostel po is a great hostel. Very nice and extremely clean! You also get duvets on the beds :) It's in a great location, the only thing is the atmosphere isn't great (when we stayed anyway) no one really spoke to each other even though there are really good communal areas including a huge rooftop terrace! Not really the hostels fault. I suppose! Has a good kitchen and free tea and coffee all day!

Hi Trish! Thanks you for your comments! The atmosphere depends on the day, the mood of the guests and other factors. It is usually the opposite of what you said, but sometimes it is very quiet and you can't do much about it. Hope to see you again and that way you can experience how the hostel is when you get good vibes here. Regards :)


Calm hostel in a good area with nice and helpful staff and a great terrace! Basic breakfast. The rooms have big lockers and they and the bathrooms are very clean. Not so the small kitchen, which would need a cleaning lady. It would be perfect to have Wifi at the terrace!
