Awesome hostel. Great atmosphere with a cool roof terrace where you can chill with other guests. The place has loads of cool artwork and is set out more like a house so feels really welcoming and cosy. Fantastic staff too! Thanks Sally, Richard and Gabby for a really fun stay! Definitely stay here if you are in Valparaiso!!


Comfy beds, cool roof terrace, nice sized hostel. Pretty laid back vibes when I was there but doesn't claim to be a party hostel. Location is perfect.


Hostel Po really reflects the personality of Valparaiso - it's colourful, quirky and old school. It has all the makers of a good hostel - helpful lovely staff, a good communal area, good recommendations and a hair dryer when you need it. Breakfast wasn't much - bread and fruit, but it hit the spot. Also has an awesome rooftop terrace with fabulous views over this great city. Bed was ok. Shower not good, didn't get very hot. Wifi worked. However I'd go back.


Fab hostel, great staff Good location Excellent roof terrace Had a wicked time Breakfast could be more exciting!!!


The room was not very warm. Dormitories seems to be much better than private room. But I had a good stay.

Hi Charles! Thanks for your comment. We always have more covers for double rooms. You should have asked us. Hope you have a good and safe trip. Regards


Small but cosy hostel in central Valparaiso, roof terrace a bonus. The only downside is breakfast, which is pretty average.


Overall, an excellent hostel. Had a ton of fun with the great people and staff and the atmosphere was fantastic, especially the upstairs deck. Really cool. Good showers and facilities and in a good location for seeing the great street art. Good hostel :)


Best hostel in Chile. Super nice staff. Loved it.


Good ambience. Good breakfast. Located near nightlife. One problem: they don't have a system for assigning beds. I was assigned a bed, and then another guest was assigned to the same bed. Not a problem until she came in drunk, woke me up and started yelling at me. The staff was very apologetic and dealt with the girl, but things could be a bit more organized.


Really nice hostel, nice private room. We stayed in a door one night which was nice, hard comfy, warm beds. The kitchen is very small and the showers aren't great but all good enough. Rooftop is really cool in nice weather and lounge is nice too.


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!

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 :)
