We stayed at the hostel two nights. You can't beat the location! The view is beautiful, right onto plaza de armas. We had a room on the 4th floor, it was outdated and sadly dirty (the comforter had lots of stains) but for the prize it was ok. They had a party with food to share and free churripan which...

You can't beat this location. The view from the 6 floor patio is amazing. It gives you Plaza De Armas and a chunk of city center, beautiful day or night. The location was the main selling point when we were looking for an accommodation and it delivered - the closest hotel was still a couple of blocks away and view...

Really nice hostel, great finishing and a lot of areas to hang out other than just your room. Also it's in the plaza de armas so your right in the middle of the city. Beds were really comfortable and had a two great nights sleep. Decent place to meet travelers.

Paying 29.000 Chilean Pesos for a private room that was more like an apartment completely separate from the rest of the place (even another floor) was great while we had all the access to the public areas. The staff was nice and helpful, the sleep was calm and the location great and the crowd seemed interesting too. Can only recommend!

Nice location, but the rooms are not nearly as nice as the photos on their website. It wasn't so clean. It felt like the website was dishonest, so we decided not to stay there further. Really for the price they ask they should offer higher quality. We found some really nice hostels in Chile, this wasn't a good choice.

Great location but the hostel itself is lacking! I went on a trip in the summer of 2009 (actually winter in Chile).The view of the Plaza de Armas is very nice and the fact that it is elevated far above the Plaza keeps the noise of the hustle and bustle of Central Santiago down. The central location also helps in...
