Santiago, Chile
Reviewed 15 January 2017

This hostel has a great location, really safe, well connected and really close to the waterfront. It`s really clean and beds are comfortable. There's kitchen but no restaurant, so you have to go out if you don't want to cook.

Rooms are clean and the place is fine but they don't have breakfast neither food at all and WiFi is not the best, also the cleaning staff sometimes was not nice at all so I think location is the best thing about it.

Thanks for your review. We do try make it clear we do not serve food and we are surround by great little eating spots and plenty of free food delivery companies. Our WiFi is something we are working on and look forward to our much anticipated fiber to be installed.

Shuttleservice on arrival is safe and conveniënt. Great and helpfull, friendly reception on morningshift! Best pillow during my stay in South Afrika. Dormitory open, not a lot of privacy. Though nice seats to do your email around the pool or on the bar.

Thanks for your feedback, not sure how we could improve on privacy in dormitories but will give this some thought.

Auckland, New Zealand
Reviewed 9 January 2017

The staff were very helpful when we had a seasonal bug issue, which was resolved very quickly. The facilities were really nice and clean. I could only fault the size of our room, which was really cramped for 2 people. The fan was also offset from the bed, which resulted in us getting quite hot in the night.

I stayed in Sunflower Backpackers just for one night. The structure of the hostel is good, especially the kitchen. The staff was helpful and polite all the time. Besides its location is very good. There's a market and some restaurants in a walking distance.

The kitchen is big and with plenty of space for cooking, as well as the fridge. The bathrooms were clean and with hot water. The people was very nice with us! The location is quite good! For a short time there we found nothing bad to complain... only some noise over night on the corridor and other areas... besides that...

Amazing hostel, a relaxing oasis to hang out and enjoy life. It's located close to the city center so it's quite easy to get around. Staff is very friendly, always help you with everything, so just ask. The rooms are nice and bright, beds are super comfy. There's really nothing I can complain about and I'd always come back to...
