Overall I had a great two night stay in Hostel Florencia. It was conveniently located right beside the bus terminal (we arrived from Santiago) and was a short bus trip from many of the interesting and exciting sights of Valparaíso. The room we stayed in was comfortable and clean although the decor was on the older side of things. The owner was friendly, helpful and accommodating, though we needed to rely almost entirely on Spanish to communicate. We had excellent access to hot water and wifi, for those extra comforts too. If there was one drawback it might be that it seemed slightly more expensive compared to other hostels and homestays of the same quality - but we were able to overlook that as everything was up to a decent standard.
