Liked: In the middle of the great hill.

Disliked: They trew away my full bag of chips while I was away for a little while. The owner love to smoke. He does it in his own room but you still smell it. Doing laundry is possible but very expensive. When we asked were the tour (tour4tips) was he showed us the wrong place on the map. It would be nice, if we get advice that it is correct advice.

Liked: We love and enjoy our stay in this place, I would rather say its a friends home where you could meet and welcomed by other friends. It's in the nice neibourhood which either walk up and down the 'cerro' would make you enjoy all the cafe, shop, viewpoint :) don't forget to gather with other travelers and requesting the best chef Gera to make you a meal (for sure you have to pay) but its sooooo yummy (best we had in our stay in Chile). Dorm is spacious, double room is bit small but it's ok, the living room is cozy and enjoy it much! Gera is a very very clean person and make everything so comfortable to stay. Simple and typical Chilean sandwich and lovely fruit juice as breakfast . Thanks.

Disliked: Wancy left no negative feedback.

Liked: The location, the bath room and the bed rooms were very nice. Breakfast was ok.

Disliked: It feels more like a family house than a hostel, it didnt feel comfortable to us but for some people it may be.. I would not recommend people to go their on their own because it is very small and you won't meet other persons.

Liked: Hands down the best place to stay in Valparaiso! Cristian and Gera completely open up their home to their guests. We had to find a new place to stay a few nights after we got into town because we did not book enough nights and they found us a place down the street booked it for us and even helped us carry our bags to the other hostel. The entire house is super clean. Showers have awesome water pressure. And the shared area feels like home. The location is perfect too, very central to everything. And for where it is located you couldnt find a better price.

Disliked: Nothing, this is place is great.

Liked: I stayed here in November & ended up returning for Christmas, Herado & Christa were so lovely and really do all they can to make sure that their guests have a nice time. They helped us booking our next hostel too & occasionally gave us fresh juices or snacks from the kitchen. This is a small friendly hostel, not really a party hostel, although we stayed up late in the pretty courtyard drinking wine & the guys didn't mind..

Liked: Pretty good location, ascensor ride to a major supermarket and great views. Tons of restaurants, shops, cafes, etc. in the area. Staff do barbecues on warm days, and are really friendly, helpful guys.

Disliked: 5 bed dorm looks poky, but not so bad really. Bit noisy in the night time when people watch tv downstairs. Tiny kitchen can be awkward when several people want to use it.
