    Funky hostel in Valparaiso, owners Miguel (human) and Milo (cat) are both lovely! Room was comfy and reasonably quiet. Located between the bus station and the tourist areas of the city.

    Miguel made a nice continental breakfast. As the name implies, you should like (at least not dislike cats) if you stay here. The older cats were personable, and generally quiet and kept to themselves.
