Super location. Loved the stairs leading up to the hotel saying "we're not hippies, we're happies", The view of Valparaiso's port from the top bedroom is superb. Good size room, comfy bed, nice bathroom, pleasant common area, good breakfast and friendly, helpful staff. What's not to like? I'd stay here again if I came back.

This hostel was the best! From the friendly and helpful staff to the rooms, the view from the terrace and the clean facilities, the variety at breakfast to the ps3 in the common room. It's a quirky building in a great location and no cons. It was also pretty reasonably priced in comparison to other hostels in the area and...

We stayed here for two nights and were mostly very impressed with the hostel. Firstly, the building itself is lovely, and very well situated. The double room was pleasant enough, and the shared bathroom did the job. The kitchen was a definite high point - well equipped and definitely the nicest we've had in South America. The common area was...

I stayed at Acuarela while traveling solo in South America. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful in booking bus tickets, explaining what to do and to see in valparaiso ! The house in which the hostel is located is charming with wooden panels, a forged-iron staircase and a cute little terrace perfect to chill with a drink! Very tidy...

'Best hostel in South America' might seem like a big statement, but we really felt that to be the vase for Hostal Acuarela. We arrived here wanting to stay for 2 nights, and one week later and we still don't know when we will leave. The location of the hostel is ideal, as it is situated in one of the...
