This hostel was awesome. Comfortable bed and amenities, clean, the staff and owner were social, fun and helpful. Location is walking distance to the metro, restaurants and bars. Nice outdoor courtyard, always someone to sit and have a drink with. And the hostel dog that skateboards is always entertaining. Special mention to Gigi, Orianna and Nadia for all thier help...

Had an amazing time in santiago and it was thanks to this hostel and the people i met there! Lovely staff! Orianna makes the best nachos! The dog can be annoying sometimes if you want to eat outside but if he is not around you miss him!

This is my favorite place that I've stayed in all of South America! It is such a comfortable place to stay, it really feels like coming home. The kitchen is totally equipped and it's been great cooking big elaborate meals with other guests from all over and then enjoying them either in the dining room or the lovely back patio... More

The hostal was in a good location for exploring Santiago. The staff were helpful in giving us recommendations and tips for the area. Our room was spacious, with a very comfy bed and a nice balcony (double with shared bathroom). Only downside was that you could hear alot through the walls - hostal guests, barking dogs etc! talking of dogs... More

Thanks for the compliments!! Sometimes our dog gets a bit rowdy and barks during the bbqs but he always calms down once he has a few drinks. (just kidding btw). More

We're lucky finding this in busy Santiago! It's located strategically, just few minutes walk from the Metro and the park! The grocery store is just in the corner too! The owner is hands-on that's why you'll appreciate this place better! The great thing about this place is meeting m!ore matured travellers= the kitchen, toilet, living room are all clean! It's...

Great staff. Beautiful old house with lots of area to chill and meet fellow travelers. Nice patio. Sweet dog. Spacious bedrooms with comfortable beds. Only downside was the noisy street - maybe inevitable for a Friday night in Santiago.

Thanks for the compliments. Regarding the street noise - this is a rare complaint as we are in a residential area but once in awhile the locals will sing on their way back from the bar. And the Spanish students in the house across the street from us will have a party once a month or so but its never... More

Liked: Really nice room, and German girl at the reception is really friendly. Disliked: Breakfast was not really nice, 2 really dry pancakes. Only stayed here for 1 night, but we recommend this place!

From the kind and welcoming staff to the breakfast waffles (no joke) this is a top place to stay and is remarkably inexpensive considering its location in the centre of a lively and fun capital city. This place did all the basics very well: secure, clean, warm, comfortable beds, good internet etc. It also went further with lovely living areas... More

Very clean hostel with a good crowd. This place seems to attract people that were open friendly. The owner was also genuine and friendly. He organised a BBQ while is was staying there with some of his friends and the people staying in the hostel. It felt like a big share house. This hostel doesn't have a bar so if... More
