Formerly a house of an English banker, some one hundred years ago, this lovely residency is in a ideal spot away from the noise of the main streets. Our double room is large and the bed comfy. Charming local host too. We loved it.

Gaston and Alice were exremely friendly and helpful and there is a nice breakfast in the morning in the homely living room served by Gaston. It is situated down a quiet picturesque alleyway not far from restaurants and stores plus the oldest funicular in Valparaiso, Ascensor Concepcion. The house is a big old colonial-type one with lots of character and... More

Absolutely brilliant spot. There are two adjacent houses, of which I took a private room in the "hostel" side (Pierre Loti 43). Fun people—both those running the place and their guests—great location, comfortable atmosphere, lovely high ceilings, fast wifi. I worked, I played, I ate, I drank, I slept like a baby. Nice place to start off a walk around... More

We found ourselves looking for a hostel last minute, wandering around the Cerros in Valparaiso and one of the hostels that had no room directed us to this one - Residencia en El Cerro. It is a big house right off a main street, in a great location between popular common streets that let you wander anywhere easily. It is... More

I have just spend one night there and I was very pleased with the attention I received. The house has a great location at Cerro Concepción, easy to go to all the attractions and to the "elevator" that can take you up and down the hill for 300 pesos (0,6 USD approx). The rooms are decent, and the shared bathrooms... More

This is a nice little hostel situated in a great location but with privacy and quiet of a pedestrian and historic street. (although room facing the back street can get a little noise - to be expected in this town). When we arrived we did point out an issue with our room, however the staff and owner were very quick...

The hotel has a good reputation and advertises dorms. However, they are in the house of the owner's daughter next door. This is her own residence and she has rooms permanently rented out as well. the dorm room is at the back of the ground floor, a bit dark. The house has cats and there is a pervasive small of...
