    Lovely Hostel

    We had a great time at La Joya Hostel. The room was a private twin room. It was really clean and well presented. The staff were super helpful too. They have a lively bar which do great Pisco Sours!

    I appreciated the availability and helpfulness of the staff; the partner-restaurant-bar next door provided a hearty and varietal breakfast.

    Great hostel experience

    This is a lovely clean hostel with great staff and a great restaurant attached. Our room was a bit warm and dark, but other family members’ room was pleasant. The common areas are well lit with daylight and very comfy. The kitchen is minimalist— no stove. A great feature of this property is the rooftop deck. It is a great place to hang out! This area of Valpo is pretty gritty. It’s near the market but far from the historic port area.

    not worth extra cost compared to other hostels

    Well-designed communal areas. Private room was fine by not worth additional cost compared to other hostels. Good breakfast, rooftop terrace and bar. Felipe very helpful on reception desk. Near bus station - no reason to stay in this area!

    Very cool hostel with great decor in all the common areas and rooms and a fantastic free breakfast, including eggs, fruits, bread, coffee. The bar on the terrace is also a nice place for a drink. The hostel was quite quiet when we were there but that could have been the time of the year. Not in the centre of town (20 minute walk), but very convenient if you are arriving and leaving by bus, as it is right by the bus station. Would definitely stay again.

    100% recomendado

    Fue una experiencia muy buena, el servicio fue genial, el restaurant 100% recomendado, exquisito. La única incomodidad es que hasta las 22 hrs había mucho ruido y como a las 4 de la mañana comienza otra vez, pero todo lo demás espectacular

  • 8.0.Very good


    2020/2に2泊しました。一階は駐車場、レセプションや部屋は二階にあるので、チェックイン時はインターホンを鳴らし、ドアを開けてもらい入ります。 チェックイン後は入り口と部屋の鍵の二つをもらいます。スタッフは英語が話せる方でした。ロビーはくつろぐスペースがあり、レストラン、ダイニング(簡易キッチン付)、キッチンが別にあります。 ドミトリーの部屋もあれば個室もあるので、私達は二人用個室に泊まりました。アメニティは石鹸、シャンプー、トリートメントがついていました。タオル(一人2枚)もあります。シャワールームは狭かったですが湯圧、温度共に充分でした。 部屋に冷蔵庫はないので、共用冷蔵庫を使うことになります。近くのモールにスーパーがあるので、材料を買ってきてダイニングで食べることもできます。朝食は簡単なものですが、パン、フルーツ、卵、ホットティーなど十分な量ありました。 可もなく不可もなくといった宿です。バスターミナルや駅にも近いので、観光には困りません。 宿から徒歩距離の mirador baron には必ず行って下さい。絶景が見られます。

    La joya de Valparaíso

    Me encantó el lugar, la atención y todo. Muy conveniente el restaurante al lado. El sector es un poco peligroso en la noche pero nada que un taxi no solucione. Las habitaciones son preciosas. La ubicación es demasiado conveniente. Iría de nuevo y lo recomiendo.
