Property Description

We have painstakingly renovated a cultural building with the hostel experience in mind, with large kitchen and common areas, interesting exposed 'Barrio' traditional brick walls and antique timber pillars, double glass insulated windows for less street noise and warmth/coolness, modern big bathrooms and a location fantastic for both relaxing in or enjoying the night life close by. Rooms include free Wifi, use of well equipped kitchen and book exchange. Hostal Licanantay is truly a great choice when searching backpacker hostels in our colourful and creative city Valparaiso.

We are conveniently located close to the plan on Avenida Ecuador, so easy to get to by foot, bus (number 607 stops out front), colectivo or taxi, and located only just on the outskirts of the exciting bar night-life, meaning not so noisy when you sleep, but close and convenient walking distance to get back to the hostel if heading out.

Our rooms are recently re-built and renovated, with insulation, thick doors and double glass windows for noise and temperature control for complete comfort for our guests. We have rooms of varying bed numbers, from a private room of one set of bunks (2 beds), 3 rooms of 2 sets of bunks (4 beds) and 2 rooms of 4 bunks (8 beds). All havesupplementary wifi.

It’s an alright hostel, it seemed like people were living in our dorms though and they felt like they owned it and were very rude to us and would come in while we were sleeping turn the lights on and play music loudly. I mean I get it hostels are loud and not private but that was just rude. The staff were extremely unwelcoming as well and if you try to leave the hostel at night you have to pay for a key to get back in after 1am. Just felt very unsafe and I welcomed here

We booked the cheaper two-people room. When we got there, we were assigned to the more expensive two-people room, without being told. We thought we just got another room than the picture in hostelworld indicated. Later that day, we realized that we had payed more in the hostel than said by hostelworld. The personal told us that we got a more expensive room and had to pay for this room now. They did not seem to feel any sorrow for the inconvenience. Besides this, the hostel is very lovely!
