Hostal el Raco is a decent place to stay but there are problems. The room are a little small, the linens are worn, and the plumbing needs a lot of work. Our toilet did not flush and the owner's solution was to show us how to remove the top of the tank and pull on the metal chain. Our room... More

Somehow we think that the regular management of this place must be on holiday and left their distant country cousins in control. Overall, a great place to stay in a quiet location some 25 minute walk to town (or close to metro station) in an area with a lot of old period architectural charm & a lot of local street... More

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. My room was large with double bed and ensuite. Wifi was fast, room had Tv though I did not use it. The staff... More

We arrived late, but received a smiling welcome. Our large double room with ensuite shower was spotless and warm. Staff provided us with a sit down breakfast albeit simple it was at 5.30am, so thanks for that. A little street noise at night but that was probably due to the start of the Easter holiday, rather than the norm. We... More

we did not have high expectations given some of the reviews but even this didnt prepare us for what we found. Dirty sheets, dirty bathroom with only cold waater to shower in. 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

The people are very kind and service is good. However, do not expect the hostal to look as it does on the website. 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
