Warmy place and well located really close to tube station... good wifi connection and good breakfast included in the price... staff nice and lovely. Rooms are clean and so is the shared bathroom. Communal areas are good for spending some time and there is a bbq that u can use if u want to cook some nice meat

This is a well equipped hostel, the bedrooms, lounge area and kitchen/dining area are of a decent size. There is also a pool table, table tennis table, a large cable TV and in a separate room a smaller TV for DVDs. The wifi in this hostel is exceptionally good, myself and two other friends were all able to FaceTime simultaneously.... More

Great Hostel in safe area if Santiago. Stayed there for 3 weeks. The staff was most helpful and professional. Better than average breakfast. Very very clean. The cleaning lady was anal though. I constantly had to make sure my clothes was packed up and neat in the locker.

This review was supposed to be positive review, but after a massive robbery during the night - I lost all faith in this hostel. To make a long story short: anyone can walk in and out of the hostel; and that is what makes it a very insecure place to be. I luckily didn't lose anything - but a group... More

For more than 6 months i was used to going there for a few nights, and it became a kind of second home. It is well located, clean, and the back yard does not make you feel like being in such a big city. The staff is just adorable, helpful, and very friendly, and make you feel as if you... More
