Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Casa Volante Hostel is located at the foot of Cerro Concepción in Valparaíso. I arrived without notice and was able to get a room very easily.

The place is extremely close to some must visit sites in Valparaiso. The red door, piano stairs, a famous slide, and of course lots and lots of murals and places where you can go to eat.

They serve breakfast from 9 to 11 am, but you have to either pay 5 to 6 thousand Chilean pesos or just get a deal for an extra thousand pesos at the moment of booking your stay via web.

I guess what I liked the most about this place was the hospitality and how passionate Marcela at the front desk was to guide me through everything I needed to know to have a good time while wandering through the hill.

I didn’t even have to ask too much and she just started talking about how I could get to the places I wanted to visit and even took the time of circling the spots on a map so I could find them easily. Plus you could tell she felt very enthusiastic when explaining about it all.

Finally, they also give you a towel even if you stay in a shared room which I think was pretty nice.

I would 100 percent come back.

Casa Volante is awesome. That's it.

The staff is lovely, prestative and charming.

The hostel is well located in the heart of Valparaíso and the acommodations and good.
It's located in a touristic point of Valparaíso, close to everything you may need and the nightlife.

The house of the hostel is an classic Valparaíso style house, the hostel was always clean and lot of bathrooms available for use.

Nice beds, pillows and structure and a really nice natural breakfast with some good options of bread, fruits, juices and cereals.

For sure would stay in Valparaíso and this is my first choice, Casa Volante!

This place is impossible to find on a gps however that’s what makes it great when you finally find it. It’s up or down some steep steps with amazing street art. Next to all the shops and so close to everything you need. So overall the location is perfect. I arrived really late and had a room at the very very top of the hostel which goes to the top of the hill. The room I booked was a private double and had super large ceilings and an absolutely amazing view. This probably made my trip of Valparaíso just perfect. You could see everyone going about their day and watch the sun go down in the evening. For me everything was great there was a kitchen and bathroom on my floor. It can be quite noisy due to wooden floors and high ceilings and also the hostel across has a rooftop area which can get soooo loud but this was a problem only because I had a two year old travelling with me and they did actually stop before 12. In the night you can sometimes hear saxophones playing which reminded me of the film aristocats which I watched as a child. The hostel has a really nice atmosphere and plenty of space. The WiFi works just fine. The breakfast is really good there are a few options. I would definitely stay here again and I really liked the place! I met some great people here.

Not a bad place to stay if you are easygoing and like to meet new people.
There's not really enough bathrooms for the number of guests when its full, and you better get to breakfast early.

The staff were super helpful and lovely, until we had a problem with our room and then things got a little tense. Maybe a place for people who can put up with anything. We're open-minded and experienced travellers but expect good customer service when things go wrong.

Stayed here for two nights in a twin private with bunk bed. Our room was in the back building which comes with an own kitchen which was just like the main one quite well equipped. The room was fine apart from the window which couldn't be closed normally and would let the cold air in from outside. The bunk beds are wider than the avg. beds we had so far. The shared bathrooms were rather dirty and NOT cleaned daily. There was the same trash lying in one of the showers for two nights. Another review from March already mentioned this for the same bathroom to which the management replied that they will improve tge situation which is obviously not true. The common area is nice and there's also a bar downstairs. The location is excellent. You can pay with credit card but they surcharge you a 4% fee compared to when paying in cash. They justify it with that as a foreigner you don't need to pay tax (19%) but that has nothing to do with their 4% surcharge! Not sure if that's even allowed in Chile...

Although location very good and hostel's hallway is artsy and promising, negligence is felt all over the place - no toilet paper, no hot water in some bathrooms, cheap leaking faucets and weak Wi-Fi in very basic rooms.
Informed reception girl that there is no toilet paper got back from the city few hours later there were still none, went to the loo at night - no paper.
I know that this is only hostel but still - a little improvement, attention would get better rating but for now wouldn't recommend at all.

Given all the amazing reviews, I was expecting this place to be really good. On the positive side, great location, breakfast buffet for $5usd per person, lovely living areas (and several of them) and a well supplied kitchen where you can cook if you want. Watch out on the rooms, avoid room 16. Room 12 was good. The upstairs bathrooms and the two rooms we stayed in, could all do with a fresh lick of paint to get rid of the stains and some mould (bathrooms).

Don't get me wrong, this is a great hostel and I would highly recommend. It is located in a great area of Valpo, which felt really safe. There is a really cool and laid back social vibe here and the hostel is well equipped with two kitchens and lots of bathrooms - No waiting around! The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly, especially when my friend cut his head open and there is also a great and reasonably priced laundry service as well.

However as the bed is a fairly fundamental aspect to a hostel experience this is where we were ever so slightly let down. We stayed in a private twin room which consisted of a double bed, with a single bunk above. To say that the top bunk wasn't stable, is an understatement. Every time you rolled over, the bed would sway with you, making one hell of a noise and in turn waking you up. Definitely something that needs looking in to and from speaking to other guests it wasn't an isolated issue. That being said we really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely return!

Pros: This hostel is near the waterfront and close to a supermarket. It has a good breakfast and a shared kitchen. There is a table football in the common area and also a small balcony area on the second floor. There is a room to lock your bags away before check in/after check out.
Cons: The bathrooms were not super clean and sometimes it was difficult to find one that was free. You might have to try different floors. The floors are wooden and gave me a splinter in the bedroom. The staff are not very flexible when it comes to check in (even asking 10 minutes before check in time we were told we had to wait). The sofas in the common/reception area are not fit for purpose and you can feel the solid structural insides when you sit on it.
