Where to stay in Concepcion

A youthful and modern cultural center, the city of Concepcion boasts an extensive range of places to stay, within easy reach of the buzzing main neighborhoods. South of Los Carrera lies the main choice of accommodations, with backpacker-friendly hostels, modern boutiques, and simple hotels all located close to the main bars, restaurants, and hangouts.
