Good hostel in great location. A few people seem to live there but that seems normal in south america. Everyone is very friendly. Nothing to complain


Nice hostel and the best staff!! So friendly and helpful! Really nice people! They care about you!! :) The beds are confortable and good shower!


The staff was very supportive and gave good advice about what to do in Valparaiso. The löcation on the hill above the harbour was very nice and clos to the main attractions. The building seems to be quite old and partly affected by the weather.

The hostel is great! I'll start with the bad things though: at 23:00 you must make silence, which makes you leave the hostel when the best part of the night is coming or if you are just having a beer with some new friends. Also the showers worked fine only the first date. I couldn't bath the following days. It was so cold!!! Everything else was totally great. The staff is awesome, the facilities are ok and the location is maybe the best in all the city. I definitely recommend this hostel.
