Property Description

We are a laid back, backpacker hostel in the heart of B-side Valparaíso. Come and have a relaxed holiday in the middle of the most authentic street market of this bohemian, harbor city. We are located close to the main bus terminal, in an old building from 1897 which used to be, back in the days, a brothel. We are just few blocks away from the pier with sea lions and a small beach. We have a nice kitchen where you can feel inspired to cook and share!
We only expect you to make good friends while staying with us and understand our sarcastic humor. Hope to see you soon!

    Great hostel, clean tidy and the staff and volunteers were amazing. We stayed during the protests and never once felt unsafe in the hostel. The staff kept us informed on what was going on, we had some great nights sat outside having food and drinks with everyone, brilliant atmosphere, would definitely stay again if I was ever in Valparaiso.

    Very nice hostel with a very nice vibe! We really liked our stay with the lovely people and great atmosphere. There is always something cozy beer drinking on the patio at night but it's always possible, so you get the best of both worlds. The hostel owner is very nice, and makes everyone feel welcome. The location is good, since you can buy cheap fruit all day at the fruit market. All in all, very good stay, which is why we ended up staying 12 days.

    I stayed two weeks. The location is very centric near the bus terminal and main roads. Bus stop is just 5min away walking distance. The food market is just down the stairs where you’ll find a lot of local fruits and veggies. There is a butcher next door and botelleria across the street. Panadería is just around the corner as well the fish market. I loved Muffin Hostel and it staff members, the place is super clean and tidy. friendly staff they’ll help you at anytime. Breakfast is so great!

    Like many of the other comments, I didn't plan to stay as long as I did. This hostel has everything I look for in a great hostel. A sociable hostel where people would love to hang out, and where you meet new friends. The hostel owner is the best guy. He has made a welcoming atmosphere. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There's a great vegetable market right outside the hostel. The hostel is very clean and has well-equipped common areas. Even homemade bread for breakfast!

    Not in a nice place once the market is closed, but close to the Bus terminal. Beds and showers are definitely not made for tall people...

    Hostel very conveniently placed next to the bus terminal and produce market. Staff were very accommodating when I needed an extra night there due to National Strike day when I couldn't leave the city. Breakfast is excellent - authentic manjar (caramel sauce), homemade seedy bread and sliced fruits.

    It comes at a good price, well located and good breakfast, but some things just can't be ignored. Cleanliness and facilities could get a renovation. rooms are so close to the Main Street, its really loud all day long. Had to make my own bed with the provided sheets.

    Good location - very close to the bus station. The morning market right outside the hostel is very loud and obnoxious in the morning if you're trying to sleep in. Breakfast was tasty and the staff were helpful! Only one shower had hot water.

    We picked this hostel due to the proximity of the bus station, which was more important to us than being close to the city center. A popular market occurs in the neighborhood which starts at 5:30am, so it can get a little loud. The bathrooms were small and dirty. The breakfast includes fruit, tea, coffee and bread with butter/jams. The bread is freshly made and it's so good! We were warned about the safety of the neighborhood but did not experience anything that made us feel unsafe.
