Several bad things. You have to pay to use the common areas after check out time. I've never seen this before. So don't stay here if you are waiting for a bus, etc. Staff have to let you in and out by opening the entrance with a key. Annoying for everyone and a fire hazard. The worst of all is our dorm reeked like gasoline. It was making me sick. It turns out it was due to a bed bug problem and that was the cleaning solution! The location was okay and the breakfast was good but regret booking.
Very friendly staff, the hostel has a great atmosphere and is good if you are up for a party. Breakfast is not the best and toilets definitely needs a handyman and a good clean. Rooms are big and there are lockers for your personal belongings. Overall a good experience due to friendly staff and nice people at the hostel.
Cool hostel, very friendly staff, nice common rooms where I was able to meet some really great people, spacious rooms and breakfast that is actually served to you. All in all, this hostel definitely contributed to the great time I had in Valparaiso.
Me and my boyfriend stayed there for one night. It was really nice there, breakfast was awesome (homemade smoothie, and marraqueta with cheese and tomato baked in the oven!!). The Location is pretty nice, close to Valpos center and still high enough to get an amazing view over the city! The staff was really nice! Thx to Sina, Urban ;) and everybody else - was a great and fun evening! ;)
This hostel seems to attract the best travellers and provides cozy spaces to hang out, share a bottle of wine, play the guitar, cook a meal, etc. The staff take care to keep the space clean, the breakfast is amazing, and the beds warm and comfortable. The hostel is located on a quirky little street lined with flowers and street art located next to tons of cafes and restaurants as well as one of the best views of the city. Only complaint are the showers-either freezing or scalding. No in-between.
Location is about 30 min walk from bus station which is a long hike with a pack. Great facilities - I was here for new year (busiest night of the year) and we never had to queue for bathroom. Lovely staff.
Really friendly and helpful staff, great atmosphere and loved the communal patio so was very easy to meet other people, yummy breakfast, clean showers and great/comfty facilities. Good location too and walking distance from the main plazas. Would definitely come back!

Nice staff, excellent atmosphere. Nice patio at the back where you can have a drink with other travellers. Nice common area inside.
AMAZING location, walking distance to bars, cafes and main attractions. The dorms are big and the breakfast alone is reason to book in. The staff were super accommodating as we continued to keep extending our stay and were helpful in getting us acquainted with the city.
Great venue to see the graffiti in Valpo. Good breakfast and internet was good. Small hostels you tend to meet more people so I really enjoyed this hostel. Only bad thing was some of the other travellers there, coming in at 5am and having a drunk loud conversation in the dorm is not too respectful, but that's only a small minority of people and I was just unlucky to share a room with them.
Low quality bunk beds and small lockers. Besides that a nice base for exploring Valparaíso.
had a really good time there! stuff is really helpful ,great location and clean!
Love love love this hostel! Its in a wonderful location in Cerro Alegre with some awesome street art all around. It felt like home and the staff became like family. They arranged a communal dinner for the guests one night and it was delicious! Breakfast is hands down one of the best free breakfasts around with fresh fruit and great coffee! The shower had hot water and great water pressure, which is really a traveler's dream.
Really cool hostel and really good staff! Have nothing bad to say! :)
Decent hostel. Need to organise breakfast better, had one member of staff trying to cover reception and the kitchen at the same time.

Vibrant, friendly hostel with lots of character. Perfect location in typical valpo area - close to everything! And the breakfast is amazing!!
Enjoyed the short stay. Located in a good spot to get around. My only complaint was that there were kids running around. I think they live on the property.
Great location and big house. I was there during the wildfire, the staff was awesome and supportive. However the streets near the hostel were unsafe, a few friends were robbed outside waiting for the staff to unlock the door.
It was too noisy for me. But that was fellow guests. But pleasant enough. Locker back was broken and doors loosely fitted. Centrally located. Breakfast was different and nice. Nice decor.
