Safe, clean, and good location. Not the most exciting decor inside, but at the price and location a good deal. Design and higher price are next door at the Hostal Caracol. Short stroll to the heart of Bellavista, hipster and foodie center of Santiago. Manager Luis was helpful with directions for taking care of errands and appointments in parts of... More

Ideally located for downtown Santiago and the clubs and bars of the Bellavista area. The hostel is spotless but could do with a lick of paint. We stayed in a double room with shared bathroom. I thought that the bathroom to rooms ratio was rather low. Security was high with remoted controlled external gate from the road. There was a... More

Whatever you do, don't stay in room #3. It's right outside the check in desk and front door. Since hostel is near a lot of cool bars, you can imagine the noise late at night and early in the morning. Also, the security seemed very minimal. The gate and the front door weren't locked when we came in at night,... More

Excellent location in a "must see" neighborhood, near to everithing you want, clean, staff very friendly and willing service. I recommend the rooms that not facing the street, because on weekends there may be some noise (not much anyway). The only complaint was a mix up with our reservation, which forced us to stay in a room with shared bathroom... More

We had 2 nights at the hostal in Aug. We booked a double room with private bathroom. When we arrived the previous occupants had taken the room key with them so there was no way the lock the room door! While the staff were waiting for the locksmith to arrive, they offered us a double room with a shared bathroom... More

Myself and my partner spent 3 nights at Hostal del Barrio in March 2012 and were very impressed. We paid 20,000 Chilean Pesos a night for a double room, with a shared bathroom, including a hot shower, and breakfast. Our room was spacious and clean, as was the shared bathroom. The communal areas, such as the area out the front... More

The germans know their game. This was the third german-run GH we visited while in Southern America and weren't disappointed. The guy who runs the place is a great character and very helpful. Our room was on the 2nd floor, it was bright with three windows and quite pretty. The outdoor seating area is also very nice indeed and so... More
