The Experience

We are in one of the best locations in the city. Away from the noise of downtown, but close enough walking. We are in the tourist center and patrimonial of the city, as is the Cerro Alegre and Cerro Concepción. This is where you will find the best gastronomic offer in the city and excellent boutique shops.

El tiempo que estuve en Acuarela Hostel sin duda hizo que Valparaíso pareciera aun mas hermosa! Allá encontre gente maravillosa y arriesgo a decir que el ambiente más acogedor y buena onda de toda Valparaíso! En el hostel las horas de trabajo pasan volando y las horas de alegría y diversión son incontables, para siempre voy a extrañar nuestras previas y carretes. Dani, Toño y Ale, ya les dije, pero repito: segui viaje pero una parte gigante de mi corazon quedo ai con ustedes, ustedes son increibles.

Working at Acuarela Hostel was a very good experience! The hostel is very well located and I felt in love with the city of Valparaiso, also I had plenty of free time to get to know the city. The owners and staff are very receptive and "buena onda". Thanks for everything!
