One of the best hotels I have ever stayed at! Well located on one of the nicest streets in the city. Short walk to alfama (old town), main train station, metro. Activities on every night coupled with friendly and knowledgeable staff make life very easy for a traveller

Really friendly member of staff (T) greeted us and showed us our room. Which unfortunately was very dirty and had hairs all over the bathroom. The pool looked very dirty and the general area around the hostel was not very well kept. Furthermore the hostel is quite far out from the main bars and general backpacker activity in the town.

Hostel is in ideal location on the Zocalo (main square) and close to the underground transport system. Also really cool roof terrace, pity we were there in rainy season. Room really clean although slightly noisy due to wooden shutters not protecting against the noise from reception.

PataPata Hostel

Close to bars and restuaraunts. Staff are knowledge and can advise you on what to do in Valparaiso. Something on in the hostel every night to mingle with other solo travellers. Showers were warm which is needed in the South American Winter. Only thing like all hostels in Chile they could do with investing in some more heaters. Kitchen good for cooking own food and nice garden area to chill out.
