This hostel was clean and comfortable and convenient, situated in a good part of town and within walking distance to a number of bars and restaurants. Renee at the front desk was able to answer all our questions and gave us a lot of great recommendations about what to do and see in Valparaiso. The three bedroom dorm was a perfect option for a group of three travelers, giving us our own private space we could lock up during the day. We would definitely stay there again.
Great location, very helpful staff and clean rooms. In a cool neighborhood with lots of colorful artwork. Hostel itself was an old building but with modern retrofitting inside. Full kitchen and three common bathrooms all shared outside the actual rooms. Our room was pretty small but the trunk storage beneath the beds was convenient. Would recommend staying here!
I totally enjoyed my stay in this hostel in Valparaíso. It is located in the marvelous "Cerro Concepción" district which invites you to explore the beautiful area. The hostel's staff was always very nice and helpful. The accomodation rooms and the public spaces are very clean and tidy. Highly recommended!
