Check-In and Check Out: The average check-in time is from 15:00 (3pm), while the Check Out time is before 11:00 (11am). Hostels usually offer luggage storage in case you arrive earlier or leave later. Make sure you check if luggage storage is free or if there is an extra cost.
First up we bring to you a sustainable, entertaining and down-right beautiful hostel known as Casa Volante Hostal.
This is the kind of hostel that brings all traveller types together. So no matter who you are, welcome!
We love the design and how committed they are to sustainable practise. Help them out by recycling during your stay.
Easily the place you’ll likely spend most of your time is in the La Scala restrobar. Check the menu and treat yourself to a delicious cocktail, lunch or maybe dinner.
Either that or head on up to the coffee bar on the first floor. Grab yourself a speciality coffee and something fresh from the bakery. Yes please!
Good to know: Breakfast isn’t included, but it can be ordered at reception anytime.
To make up for it, the staff offer up free tea and fruits during the day. Shall we have a sneaky peak at the room selection? Let’s show you:
4, 6 and 8-bed mixed dorms
Basic single & twin privates
Standard twin & double privates
4-bed family room
Private rooms with 3, 4, 5 and 6-beds
Pretty inclusive, right? They’re certainly all homely, no-frills options. To accommodate for everyone, Casa Volante boasts 3 shared kitchen spaces, and 3 dinner-lounge spaces for people. And let’s not forget the garden!
There’s a book exchange to keep you entertained, plus unlimited free Wifi.
Location: Situated in the historic Cerro Alegre neighbourhood. Stay here and you’ll be surrounded by cafes, street art, bars and just minutes from the beach, market and port area. It’s the perfect location.
With more than 1000 square metres of modern design and home comforts to enjoy, La Joya Hostel is a top choice if you like to be spoilt.
The spacious common areas are definitely a highlight, but you’ll likely have the most fun up on the rooftop terrace!
I mean, it’s not every day you get to hang out on a terrace that’s also equipped with a hostel bar and games room – so cool.
If that wasn’t enough, each morning there is a FREE buffet breakfast that includes freshly baked bread.
As for the rooms? There’s something suited for everyone, including…
Single/double room with private bathroom
8-bed mixed dorm
Twin, triple & quadruple rooms for friends, groups & families
Alongside bright walls, the rooms are really well decked out with solid beds and inspiring quotes painted on the walls.
In fact, all of the rooms come with an ensuite!
Down in the kitchen-dining area there are tables perfectly set up for digital nomads to get some work done.
Location: La Joya is strategically located just four blocks from the bus and metro station. The largest supermarket and shopping mall in town is a few steps away, too. Move around with ease, and enjoy a ‘no curfew’ that allows you to make the most of nearby nightlife.

CLOSED: Hostel Voyage Valparaiso
Update: Our former #2 hostel has permanently closed its doors.
Hostal Voyage is quite simply “…a meeting point for travelers from all over the world, a place where art, ecology, culture and, above all, joy are integrated”.
This bubbly, friendly hostel is where you come when you’re interested in getting to know other people. It’s fun, fun, fun.
And it’s made so easy for you! Once you’ve dropped your bags, you can look forward to:
Music jam sessions
As you can see from the photos, the outdoor space is just perfect for hosting events and having fun, sociable experiences.
The patio and terrace is also where you can try your hand at outdoor games. The question is, how good at the slackline are you? Your stay includes a FREE breakfast, too. It comes with a hot coffee, scrambled eggs and fresh fruits. Score!
To support their eco-efforts, there is an opportunity to get involved in workshops with the local community. If you like bigger dorms, you’re in luck – here there is a 12-bed mixed dorm. Single and double privates are also an option.
Also: reception is open 24 hours a day and there is no curfew if you want to hit the town in the evening.
Location: In a superb central location just minutes from the main sights such as Museo al Cielo Abierto, Ascensor Reina Victoria, Arco Britanico and Natural History Museum.
