We recently visited the Hostal Portobello as 2 Canadian couples. The owners were super friendly and helped us with luggage, information, dinner tips and things to do in Valparaiso.
Located in a traditional Valparaiso’s neighbourhood, with a beautiful view to the Bay and to the hills. Under the concept of hostel boutique, we offer to our visitors a comfortable and a cute place to stay.
Portobello is a very special hostel, because it is a project that was created by destiny. That’s why we give the hostel a special seal for you to feel at your place, but just if you have a really cool one.
We love our hill, the one with the best views of Valparaiso and we are part of Artilleria Cultural Center, formed in order to have an environment friendly neighborhood that enjoys of its public places. Also to surround Artillería Hill of art and culture
Our place was thought for you to hang out in our common place, that why we have an Honesty Bar where you can drink a Chilean wine and have a good time with your friends or your couple. Also you can relax reading a book in our comfortable sofas. Our delicious breakfast is prepared with hand made ingredients, such as fresh bread, fruit salad, marmalade and a different sweet surprise every day
We have just five rooms, so the personal attention is guaranteed. Each room has its own color. Purple room, Red room, Burgundy room and Grey room are doubles ensuite for you to delight with your couple. Purple room has an extra bed. We also have the Blue Room which is twin and has a private bathroom a few steps from the room. The beds, linen and towels are of first quality.
We have gastronomic tours, where we go to the traditional market of Valparaiso and then we cook all together in the hostel or we do a fun barbecue at are terrace. We also offer walking tours guided in a familiar and fun way. All tours are bilingual
We are expecting you!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?
We recently visited the Hostal Portobello as 2 Canadian couples. The owners were super friendly and helped us with luggage, information, dinner tips and things to do in Valparaiso. Based on their information, we had a great time in Valparaiso and would recommend this B&B to anyone interested in visiting Valparaiso for the many historic and cultural attractions.
The following should be kept in mind:
1. Valparaiso is very hilly and visitors should be in reasonable shape to take full advantage of the many sights. The B&B is located on a steep street that is not accessible by car, the nearest point is about 200m uphill from the Hostal
2. While the Hostal has a great view of the bay and the working port, container cranes are in operation 24 hours per day, so it tends to be a bit noisy, although we quickly adjusted to this aspect.
Based on the Alejandro's (owner) recommendatiuon, we ate in the Puerto Viejo restaurant and the food and ambience were amazing at a very reasonable price.. Definitely worth it.
This was our virst visit to Chile and we found the people to be very friendly and the values to be great.
Overall, the Hostal Portobello is highly recommended
