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.

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

This hostel was one of the best I've stayed in so far in South America. The property is a small, homey house with quaint, gated patios surrounding the building, which allows for easy socialization with the other guests. With how the lounges are set up, it's so easy to chat with the other travelers. Moreover, John (the owner) is one... More

I have stayed at this hostel a few times and it is consistently great. Convenient location, fun and helpful staff, beautiful patio... very relaxed environment but also with plenty of energy conducive to meeting people. Always clean and the building itself is beautiful as well.

This hostel was great - sociable and fun without being a crazy party place. Friendly people working there and a great bunch staying, cooked dinners together etc. The communal breakfast is nice and it's small enough that you know most people who are also staying. Everything was clean and worked, warm showers, and a good well-stocked kitchen. It's in a... More
