This was the first place we stayed at on our journey and was mediocre. The reception staff were very good, helping us to get taxis when we left, giving directions all over town etc. However in terms of the location, this hostel is away from the touristy spots and they are a good 45 mins walk away. It is definitely... More

Ok I am going to be honest. I did love this place it reminded me of being young and care free. What I mean is great people and awesome service. But a little messy not unclean just messy. And relaxed/chilled. Like a crash pad in college. This place has a great enery and I stayed there twice and will stay... More

We had a horrible experience in this hostel back in january 2012. We ended up "sleeping" in the lounge as our beds/room was infested with bedbugs. To be fair to them they gave us our money back and we had a free breakfast.

GROSS. If you like sheets that smell like the previous occupier of the bed, then go for it. The breakfast is nice, the staff is great,, but obviously there is NO staff that cleans the bathrooms or dorms. disgusting.

Very home-like hostel. Holliday-atmosphere. Safe feeling. Nice terrace and bar outside. Surprising breakfast with a sunnyside-up egg, fresh fruitsalad, yoghurt, cerials, bread, tea, coffee. Great. Large TVroom with leather sofa's, big screen and lots of DVD's. Wifi everywhere. Rooms and beds are very ok, bathrooms large and home-like, though a little old and not so clean. Fantastic staff. Cool, fun,... More

I arrived at this hostel late at night, but before I called to assure everything was in order. The manager wasn't well aware of my reservation and told me to go anyways. When I arrived the manager was a bit waisted and had a glass of wine in his hand. Obviously he failed to give me a receipt and promised... More

We stayed here over xmas in a private double room on the top floor. Room size was okay, but it got alot of sun and without a fan was way too hot during the day. Room also had very noisy floorboards, so the neighbours below probably hated us! Bed was big and comfy though! Location great only 10 min walk... More

From the moment we arrived, we were welcomed and made to feel at home. We liked it so much, that we came back on our way through again. The breakfast in the morning is pretty good. The staff are a great mix between friendly and professional. We made long lasting friendships there and left feeling well rested and relaxed.

The guys helped us so much to knew Chile. They could show us a lot of packages to make snowboard, to go to other citys and to eat at good restaurants, always using the cheapest and shortest way. Beds are comfortable and the room counts with a air heater, protecting you from Santiago winter. Every day a well balanced breakfast... More
