No problems at all! Great location, you can do most of the things by foot and metro. Very clean and organized! Great staff! Me and my girlfriend had a great time over there! Good breakfast and kitchen!

This was the first time I had ever stayed in a hostel and it set the expectation pretty high! The staff is always friendly and helpful. Atmosphere is social ... They have a bar so if you want a quiet hostel do not stay here. They cleaned the room and bathrooms everyday, there's hot water, breakfast with eggs, bread. fruit,... More

This is a very popular hostel and it is always fully booked. Without any advanced bookings, your chances of getting a bed on a drop-by basis is very slim. American Airlines lost my lugguage at Santiago (Chile) airport and I had to stay in town before they retrieved my luggage. AA customer service helped me to book this hostel after... More

We stayed in this hostal for two nights in between our trip to Valparaiso. It was VERY noisy both nights, and not preferred. While it was budget accommodations and organized, we did not enjoy the ¨party¨atmosphere of this hostel. Rooms were spacious and clean enough, but the bathrooms left something to be desired. Decent number of bathrooms, but common to... More

Things that were great - Location, vibe, cheaper than normal bar, WiFi, price. But the front desk staff were beyond awesome in helping me and others in English, Spanish, and Portuguese. Erica, Angel, Santiago, Sebastián (two of them), many others that I feel bad forgetting their names. (blame it on the drinks:) The owners did great in hiring them all... More

I really love this place. stayed twice during my time in Chile. Left my bag while traveling no problem and the staff are always so friendly and nice. Computers, eggs for breakfast, this place has it all. It's also in a prime location.

I got a private room/shared bath in this hostel and had no issues - it was a good experience. The people who worked here were friendly, the hostel was cute and clean, I had good wifi, and the other guests were quiet. It's not a party hostel, which I like! It was also very convenient to downtown and the subway.... More

I had a very good time there. I love the place, love the city and love the guests. The change of cultural information with the other guests was amazing for me, I can see how the world is similar in many aspects. One of the best trips ever.

Breakfast is solid here: fruit, toast, make your own eggs. The hostel also offers some neat freebies like terramotos and pisco sour night. Other guests are respectful and it's quite at night. Within walking distance of the subway and many of Santiago's coolest neighborhoods
