The hostel is very basic and rooms and small but value for money. We had room number 2 which faces the street so was very noisy at night. But central to metro etc. Next time would ask for a room away from Street.

This I a great hostel maybe 10 small blocks walk to the centre. But it has local shops, bars, cafes nearby you would probably never see if not staying here. The hostel itself I found very clean.

A little street noise at night but that was probably due to the start of the Easter holiday, rather than the norm. We... More

The walls are so thin we could hear people down the hall let alone next door. Its cheap for Santiago hence the two stars but I would not... More

Wireless internet was not available nor can you place calls to cell phones from the hotel (even for a charge). Breakfast was basic and the house is quite old and a bit shabby, but ok for the...

I really liked the hostal, the familiar environment and the nice decoration called my attencion. The room I stayed was very cozy. Besides the great attention of the owner and the other employees. However if you are looking for a hostal close to a lot of bars and restaurant, this place is not for you. When I arrieved at night... More
