The good things first: The hostel has a good location really close to the bus terminal and it is owned and managed by a super nice guy. The prices are fair for Valparaíso and the old house has a special charm. However, especially the kitchen and the bathrooms need to be renovated. I am sure the 2010 earthquake hit the house hard but since then nothing really happened to fix the damage. The hostel is not the cleanest and the breakfast is just standard for Chile (toast, butter, jam, and instant coffee).

Room tip: Try to get a room not facing the main road, so rather the opposite side of the entrance.

Gustavo, the owner of Nuevamente truly loves his job. We arrived late, and when I called to tell him we were behind schedule at the border, he told me not to worry, to be patient and have fun! He waited up for us, and then ordered us a midnight pizza so we wouldn't have to go look for open restaurants. The next morning he sat us down with a map and a pen and wrote all over the city map with helpful tips and tricks. Restaurant recommendations, bus routes, which ascensores were closed... he knew it all.

The hostel itself is bright colored and light feeling. It appears to be an old house, with hardwood floors and original french doors into each room.There are only 8 rooms (some dorm style and some doubles) and there is a shared bathroom on each floor. It was kept spotlessly clean. There were two kitchens, also one on each floor. Breakfast was bread, butter, jam, coffee, cornflakes and yogurt, and was included. The common room was large, with a decent dvd collection, cable and a nice TV, if you are interested in watching TV in the evenings. The double room we stayed in was HUGE and had french doors onto a window-balcony. Also, they had reliable wifi, which I've found most other places will advertise but it never comes through.

It is not in the port area of the city, but the walk is pleasant (no more than 20 minutes), and there are also parks and plenty of food places around the hostel. Supermarket, bakery, butcher are all only a few blocks away.

The place is easy to walk to from the bus station (less than 10 minutes) and Valpo is a very well-lit city at night. We actually walked at 11 pm and felt very comfortable. I highly recommend this place!

Gustva the owner is just the best - he was so kind and lovely and even helped us book air plane tickets on a Chilean website as we couldn't read the Spanish. He gave us good tips on what bus to take to see Valparaiso so we didn't have to organise a tour, answered all our questions, advised us where the shops where and what to see and even lent us his heater as the rooms get so cold. You could not ask for more from a host. Even his girlfriend and the cleaning lady were lovely and helpful.

The house is beautiful with spacious, tastefully furnished and clean rooms that have comfortable beds. The kitchens are a little small but adequate to use and the bathrooms are simple. The TV room is great with a decent selection of movies and a good TV. As with all hostels in Chile (and south america) there is no heating in the rooms but the showers have hot water and there are always extra blankets available. As far as I could see the dorms were all single beds, not bunk beds. Not a house for people with mobility problems as the stairs are narrow and steep.

I would definitely stay here again, especially in the summer as some of the rooms have balconies and when the sun floods the house is lovely.
