Nice place with good breakfast and welcoming staff. As with any older building (and most iin Chile),bring earplugs, as the floors creak and the walls are thin. (We have been all over Chile and are light sleepers--just bring earplugs unless you wall yourself in a Sheraton). Gabriella was very helpful and speaks English well, though she was patient with our attempts at Spanish. Wifi good and hot water as good as can be expected in an old building ( be patient!). Plenty to eat nearby. Clean.
Great hostel, very cool building with lots of character. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was really good. Good location, close to lots of pubs and restaurants.
Nice enough hostel. Shabby chic is the thing in Valpo, but a bit of tidying up and some fresh paint would make this place so much nicer. We stayed in std double ensuite three nights. If you, like us, arrive from Argentina be prepared that the restaurants and bars you've been used to don't exist here. Food around this hostel is a bit pretentious, expensive and not that great. For your beer you'll pay 3/4 times that in Argentina! That said, Valparaiso is like no other place and we loved it.
Very good location, in the center of Cerro Concepcion, close to many restaurants and attractions. We had an interior room with no view, but very quiet - consider that when booking. Nice breakfast (included). Very nice and helpful staff. Recommended!

La Colombina is a fantastic choice if you want to stay at Valparaiso. Located on top of Cerro Concepción, you will enjoy fantastic views and atmosphere. Breakfast was great and the staff friendly and helpful. Unfortunately we had a small incident, somebody tried to enter our room and others while being there. The problem is that the main reception is not connected with the access to the dorms. It can be easy for somebody to enter without being noticed wonder around. Thankfully nothing happened
It is a great hostel in the hills of Valparaiso. If you want to be in the middle of Valparaiso this is a great pick. My only comments are as a foreigner its a little hard to find (as are any hostels in the hills of Valparaiso) and its a little cold in the rooms. The blankets are great, but it is still cold in the night. Staff is super friendly.
La Colombina is a fantastic place for a weekend away. Double rooms evoke Valparaiso's 19th Century past, with high ceilings, antique furniture, and very comfortable beds. The view from the rooftop deck is great and the new lounge/reception area has a working fireplace and very friendly staff. Quiet for backpackers looking to party or have activities planned in the hostel, but the breakfast is great. Highly recommended!
i hadn´t realized that i needed to bring a towel, but otherwise, it was great!!
