We read loads of great reviews of this place before booking and think it was a little over egged. It's not the best hostel in SA and neither is it the best breakfast either. Maybe we were expecting more due to the great reviews.
As soon as you go through the front door you are straight onto a steep set of stairs which take you into a living room. Off this room are bedrooms, a kitchen and bathroom. Another set of narrow stairs take you down to another floor - toilet, bathroom, more rooms, a seating area and kitchen.
We had to cancel our first night because of buses and we phoned and emailed Patricio - however when we arrived there was some confusion and we weren't sure at first if he was going to try and charge us. he didn't. We arrived at 9am and if we had taken a room at that time he said he would charge us. But then decided we go into the room after all.
The first room we were given had no windows to the outside - only high up windows into the corridor - these windows did not have a curtain across them, so if the light disturbs you, this isn't the room for you. The room was large with a decent sized bed, but there was a damp smell.
We asked to change room as we wanted a window. This one wasn't ready so we waited a short while. It was a smaller room but had 2 windows. The bed was smaller, the mattress was very thin - so thin that when you sat in bed you could feel the slats of the bed through it.
The shared bathroom was always clean and the shower was hot and strong.
The kitchen on the lower floor was not as well equipped as the one on the first floor - we had to go up for a shape knife, pan big enough for pasta and a decent sized frying pan. There was no hot water in this kitchen, so to wash up we boiled the kettle. The teatowel was always wet so it was difficult to dry your dishes.
The breakfast was available between 9am and 10am and it consisted of warm bread, meat, cheese, sometimes avocado and jam with tea and coffee. OK, but nothing out of the ordinary. If you got there near 10am you generally only had the pick of the biscuit style bread.

... 5 or 6 levels but very small rooms (you can hardly fit in the stairwells!) Massive views of the city from every room made this place feel like a mansion. After walking around the museum saturated for a few hours we called it a day. Some fun facts about Pablo Neruda: Pablo's house was loose! He was a famous poet in the early 1930s who was a pivotal character in the independence of Chile. His home had absolutely Incredible views ...
... hills. Bright public street-art adorns the city. In the late 1800s, Valparaiso was the stopover for foreign vessels including whalers, and the export point of Chilean wheat destined for the California gold rush. The opening of the Panama Canal in 1914 saw the city’s decline. Today its main purpose is tourism and as a cruise-ship stop-off due to its award of Unesco World Heritage status. ...
... feces and broken glass that is everywhere. All the while our backpack seemed to grow heavier as the sun and jumping took there tole. The graffiti for the main part was not what we would call artistic and there were bars on every window and door of the buildings we passed. Arriving at the hostel we were greeted us in Spanish, sadly our Spanish is not great and the lady was not confident at English, so naturally the solution was to speak in German! It turned out ...
... sailed on the “Calle Calle” river. Two hours later we got off the yatch and visited the “Teja island”, there we went to a museum called “Van de Maele” and also to a contemporary art museum. It was too late so we had to go back to the hotel.
... of the street so we didn't get wet. We finally made it, completely exhausted and it was closed, for some reason, guessing it had something to do with the water situation as there were signs on the gate with the words agua spliced across them. So down we trek all the way back and ended up in a bar with a mojito in our hands. We then went in search for some food and came across as REALLY cheap Chinese place ($4 meals) so the motto goes, when in chile....eat really cheap Chinese food. Day ...
