I had a great experience at this hostel in Santiago. I came late with a friend on a Saturday night (no reservation) and the receptionist-Juan Daniel- was extremely helpful in finding us a room on a busy night and making us feel welcome, and the next day gave us tons of information about the city, all in perfect English. The...

I had stayed in dorms for 5 days. Actually hostels in Santiago are not quite cheap compared to other cities in South america. So, according to my experience it was a good budget hostel. The shared shower room was not "clean" that much. But besides that, I was satisfied with this hostel. Friendly staffs (We talked a lot when I...

We booked this hostel as a treat and were really forwards to staying in one of the rooms advertised online with a view onto the plaza. However, the room we were given was horrible. It was really dirty and full of dust and the ancient bed really uncomfortable. The crockery in the kitchen was dirty and the bathroom disgusting. The...

It's a cheap and comfortable hostel, with no luxury but it's a good one. The attendants are nice and helpful. They have a simple breakfast and small heater at each bedroom, clean towels and private bathroom.
