Location of this hostel is really great - it's on the main square in Santiago. Stuff is also very good although not everyone speaks English but they are friendly and helpfull. There are rooms with shared and private toilet, although showers are all shared. Hostel has great balcony with perfect view, there is WiFi, travel guide books and pamphlets about what to do in Santiago, Valparaiso and Vina del Mar which is very useful!
The only thing that was problem is cold. We were there in winter and it was really cold in hostel, but bed sheets are really warm so no problem during the sleep.
