To run a hostel not only means watching TV and collecting money, it means also maintenance and CLEANing! The owner is a nice chap and helpful when it comes to draw a walking tour on a map, location is good also, but toilet and room is soo dirty, I haven't seen such a mess on my travels to Bolivia, Peru...
Pick another hostel if you can!

Everything was great! The hiatal is right on the border between cerro Alegre and cerro concepcion, steps away from grocery stores, restaurants, and cafes. The house is really cute and welcoming, and the owners couldn't be friendlier or more helpful! The space is limited due to it's small size, but it adds to the homey environment, and there are still two bathrooms with showers! The price can't really be beat either!

It is a very friendly and welcoming place to stay in valparaiso. You live with the owners, but they don't make you feel uncomfortable like there are always someone supervising you, you have the complete freedom there. They gave you lots of tips for the city and where not to go. The rooms are very clean, the owners clean the rooms themselves everyday and always mop the floor and clean the kitchen. They let me check out late with no extra charge and helped me to dry my clothes outside on the balcony and even invited me to watch game of thrones with them together on Sunday night. I would definitely recommend this hostel to everyone.

Locatoin is good. Cable TV in the double room.

But the double room was TINY! There was not enough room to open our 2 backpacks. Because it was so small. Then just with the bags closed there is not enough room for 2 people to stand in the room. The bedspread was dirty and old.
Hot water on day 1 was boiling, then cold, boiling, and repeat. Had to go ask for the hot water to be turned on on morning 2.
Breakfast not included the only common area inside is shared with the family of the house, so you're interrupting their lounge room if you sit there. Same with the kitchen. Towels not included, pay extra. Pay extra to use the kitchen after check out ($2500 pesos).

Room Tip: Double room is Tiny. Dorms looked like there was more space.

We were welcomed by Gerrardo and Christian very friendly. They showed us on a map where (not) to go and what to see. The hostal itself was extremely clean and the kitchen is well equiped. The central location on the beautiful Cerro Alegre was great. We could visit the city by foot. The area has a lot of nice Cafés and Restaurants. We could also give our clothes to them for washing at the price you get it at a laundry. We really recommend this hostel to everyone.
