22 April 2010 Ken would recommend this property

Liked: Our experience was spoiled by people smoking in the kitchen at night for seversl hours. We are non smokers. Non smoking signs were ignored and we were woken up by cigarette smoke permeating our room. Non smoking signs need to be more prominently displayed and the non smoking rule stressed to clients as they arrive.

Disliked: Ken left no negative feedback.

Liked: Great value for money. A little out of the centre but it's walkable and close to bus station. Lovely old style house with big rooms. Staff have limited English but very helpful. Small kitchen and you have to light boiler everytime you want hot water but all in all a lovely little hostel.

17 February 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: It was a great hostel with SUPER comfy beds. The staff were really friendly and helpful. However, if you leave your bags for the day you are told not to really use the facilities which I thought should not have been a problem. There were loads of ants in the kitchen (so dont leave your food out) but they are building a deck on the roof which should be done soon. Huge rooms with tonnes of space.

Liked: The staff were really great. They took us all out to bars on friday night and we had a great time drinking. I never would have found the one place without them, on the outside all it was was stairs down to a basement but it turned out to be really sweet inside!

Conni Bock

23 January 2010 Conni would recommend this property

Liked: I liked the character of the old building. The kitchens were not well equipped. They need to go to a street market and buy some utensils and equipment for cooking. They also need to do something about the hot water. You have to light the water heater every time you want to use it and then it cuts out, leaving you in cold water.

Liked: nice staff member. They sat us down for half an hour when we first arrived to explain to us what we can do/see/eat etc around town and explain to us where is safe and not safe to go etc. The location was a little far from the main tourist area, however it did offer some peace and quietness from the hustle and bustle from the tourist area.

17 December 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Staff is GOLD !!! So friendly they take you out for drinks, show you valpo´s nightlife and upgrade you from shared dorm to single lovely room when hostal is not full. Good location too. The hostal is a (flat) 5min walk from the bus terminal, not up hill to touristy area cerro concepcion o alege where most of hostals are. It's at a reasonable walk distance to main sighttings and the main beach in Valpo is close too.

30 October 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The staff was very friendly and helpful, though I wish someone was around 24 hours. The bathrooms could have been better kept, and bath rugs and handtowels would be a good idea. The rooms were big and nicely decorated.
