About Luna Sonrisa
We are not a big hostel – we only have space for 16 guests. We think that this is the perfect size for you to feel at home here and for us to give you the best attention possible.
We serve one of the best breakfasts you will have on your travels including handmade wholemeal bread, fresh fruit and cheese, our wonderful homemade jams and, of course tea and real coffee.
The hostel is owned and run by the author of the Footprint guide to Chile. Janak has also contributed to the last ten editions of the South American Handbook. As an expert on independent travel in Chile, he (and the rest of our friendly staff) will be on hand to answer any queries about your travels in the country and help make your stay in Valparaiso more rewarding.
Our staff all speak English, Spanish (and in some cases French and German). We can also help arrange local trips and excursions.
We have rooms to shape all tastes and budgets, from our spacious split level dormitory to singles and doubles with shared or en-suite bathrooms and our top floor luxury apartment.
Please note that we can only receive new guests between 8am and 10.30pm.
We are on a pictureque cobbled street on Cerro Alegre. The hill is the heart of the old "English quarter" of the city, first settled by wealthy European merchants in the 19th century. Here you will find weird and wonderful buildings in all sorts of architectural styles. The neighbourhood, while peaceful, is home to most of the city's best restaurants as well as dozens of boutiques, art galleries, museums, cafés and promenades with views over the bay.
A winding walk along the hills will lead you through ever changing views of the city and bay to Pablo Neruda's famed house and the open air museum, while the bustle of downtown is only 5 minutes away on foot or via any one of the three funicular railways that link the city centre with our hilltop neighbourhood.
