This hostel was amazing, not only for the very good location and venue (authentic Valparaiso-style house) but most importantly for the people. The stuff there are amazing, extremely helpful and nice, most importantly they really make you feel integrated within Valparaiso community and also at home.... Our stay at this hostel made our trip much more interesting so I would recommend it to anyone visiting the beautiful hills of Valparaiso...this can also be an opportunity to surf the beautiful Pacific waves if you ask for Gabriel.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet.....its is a nice place for a rest

This hostel is in a great location in cerro concepsion- the suburb itself is really cool with loads going on & its just a 10 min walk down the hill in to the central area.
When we stayed, it was really quiet which was a shame as if there were more people there I could imagine it been really fun! (We were the only people in our 8 bed dorm for our entire 4 night stay.)
The hostel was a little let down by its bathrooms which felt grubby, water didn't drain away properly in the shower & they went from freezing to boiling. Kitchen too felt grimmy, had to wash everything up before using it. There was an en suite toilet in our room and the toilet paper bin wasn't changed once during our whole stay.
Those things aside, it is decorated really nicely with cool common areas and the location is great. I would recommend this hostel!

Hi Vikzstar,

Thank you for taking the time to review our hostel. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us in Valparaiso.

With regards to your additional comments, we can only apologise about any hot water issues experienced during your stay. We can assure you that there are now two fully operational showers. The kitchens and bathrooms are both cleaned regulary throughout the day and night, however if at any point you are unhappy with the condition of either you could inform us at reception and the matter would be dealt with immediately. The guests are reminded to clean their own kitchens utensils after their use, ready for the next guests, however we apologise if other guests did not obey during your stay.

We appreciate your comments and hope to see you in Valparaiso again soon, enjoy your future travels.

Saludos,

La Valija family.

This Hostal has a really nice common area, which makes it so easy to meet people. We arrived late without a reservation but it was no problem to check in. The staff is incredible, Gabriel took us around the city next day. If you go to Valpo that's the Hostel to stay at!

Yes, hostel in located near to everything, I dont know why but we always ended in Papudo st where the hostel is located. Josefa, helped us with good information about what to do in Valparaiso. We stayed in a double with shared bathroom, cons we were freezing all night...felt like AC.
