This hostel is located in an old house, which gives it a very nice atmosphere. The dorm was spacious and clean, although very light in the morning. Due to the aged house, there is a lot of noise (wooden staires and floors), so a long sleep is not assured. Breakfast is absolutely delicious: very tasty bread, goat cheese, marmelades and... More

Great place, friendly and clean. With good kitchen facilities for the number of guests. Not a party hostel at all, good place to rest after days or nights out in Valparaiso. Very good location in nice part of town near restaurants and bars. Booked through their website, very easy.

The hostal is in a fantastic location, although the door is subtley signposted so can be overlooked easily. Once through the door the hostal opens up to a large house with a slightly kooky feel and a nice tiny courtyard. The person who received us was super helpful and gave us a map and advice on the area. You can... More

My partner and I couldn't wait to leave the smog and crowds of Santiago and head towards the Pacific Ocean. If you're arriving by bus, do yourselves a favor and take a taxi or 612 bus to Cerro Alegre because it's a decent walk. The hostel looks very quaint from the front and that in itself is the appeal, no... More

Although the room was basic, it was comfy and had everything we needed. We booked a double room with private bathroom which was clean and had a good hot shower. The breakfast was fantastic with fresh fruit, bread and excellent jam/marmalade. Overall it was a great quiet place to stay in Valparaiso.

Valparaiso is surprising mainly because it is built on several hills. The Luna Sonrisa is right in the middle of the birth of the town. It was a chalenge to push my heavily loaded bike to find this hostal BUT it was worth it! My room was small but perfect and clean. The place was quiet and really well maintained.... More

This is my fifth visit to Valparaiso, a magical city that is for me one of my favorite places in the world. I have stayed four times in El Nido, an apartment with the privacy of a duplex with a kitchen and a bathroom that has a view of the city ... that day and night makes me feel at... More

We booked the matrimonial room and we ended up in a very small room, very dark with a small window on the very noisy street. It was not at all like in the pictures. I've been sick in the afternoon so we went to see a doctor, with no phone to reach the hostal to say that we wanted to... More

Let me start by saying that we always try our best to satisfy our guests’ needs and help them to have a happy stay with us while they explore our wonderful city but sometimes this is just not possible.
