I really enjoyed my stay at Valpackers. The hostel is beautifully decorated and has plenty of charm. Although it is an older building, the facilities are excellent and is the best shower I have had in South America. As well as being a hostel they offer delicious gourmet tea and coffee. Karen and Jose, the hosts are very lovely people, they were very helpful and made me feel at home. Karen even took me to a nice vegetarian place for lunch as I am a solo traveller. My favourite hostel so far!


Nice hostel, a old house in the downtown of Valparaiso, colorful, a lot of murals inside, nice and helpful staff, excellent breakfast, oatmeal and fruit, bread, scrambled eggs and real coffee!!! that was the best.

Great Hostel. It's close to the Bus Station but a bit out of town once you get to grips with the local transport this isn't a problem. Staff are great and very friendly and helpful. Would definately stay again.

It was really nice to have you 2 =) I hope to see you again walking over our hills =)


Location was ok, you just have a bit of a walk to the tourist bits. Staff friendly, place was clean. It was quiet while we were there so atmosphere wasn't much! Kitchen good. Breakfast was poor.
