I stayed here about a year ago and was there for Christmas, the staff were super friendly and made every one feel at home had great advice if you needed anything.

Beds were what you would expect in a dorm and it wasn't too expensive in the scheme of things and was pretty central to most things downtown.

give her a shot i'd recommend the place for sure!!

Hospitality 100%, beautiful rare old private rooms, cheap, great bar in and out-doors, the pool area is magnificent, you even get a in-pool bar. Breakfast is good and cheap. You can choose from a variety of different combinations for a reasonable price. Fast internet throughout the whole place, and is huge!

The location was quite good, close to metro, a supermarket and quite a few bars and restraunts. The area felt less touristy than Bella vista which was nice. The hostel itself is OK. It was very noisy, as in you hear EVERYTHING. A lot of work went into renovating the building although it doesn't appear to have been maintained, floor boards worn, peeling paint etc. Our double room had no outside window- only onto walkways, which people were always walking past and looking in, so not very private. The bathrooms were OK, a lot of seating areas, and nice dining area. Kitchen was bearable and we did cook in once. Breakfast was very good, cooked eggs, toast, fruiut sale and tea.
The bed was uncomfortable.

La Casa Roja is a converted old mansion and, judging by the photos on the wall, an immense amount of work went into bringing this 'old girl' back to life. The owners should be commended for their efforts and their vision.

However, because of the building's age, it is rather draughty and cold in the winter. Our room (a double with shared bathroom) had no natural sunlight and two unsealed doors joining it with the outside, which let the cold air seep in. On our first night, the receptionist brought in a heater but, to our surprise, he said that he would return in 30 minutes to retrieve it and take it to another room.

Breakfast is a real treat and above average compared to other hostels we have been to (freshly cooked eggs, fruit salad, hot toast, juice and real coffee with milk). However, we sometimes had to wait up to 30 minutes for it (even on mornings when we seemed to be the only guests around).

My husband enjoyed the cricket practice net was and this was a nice way to meet people. The BBQ night was nice and good value.

The vibe of the hostel sometimes felt a bit strange, with it at times seeming that every other "guest" was in fact a staff member.

The location is interesting, in a up-and-coming area of the city with a nice plaza and restaurants. The hostel is within walking distance of two supermarkets and both the red and green metro lines. It's close to the excellent Museum of Memory but it really is quite a long walk to trendy Bella Vista and at times it felt like we were on the "wrong side" of the Autopista.

The hostel is an absolutely gorgeous converted mansion in a great location, Barrio Brasil, with the Plaza de Armas and neighborhoods such as Lastarria and Bella Vista in walking distance. There is a good, social atmosphere between both the guests and the staff and there are plenty of common areas for socializing. Unfortunately when I stayed here it was in the low season, so the pool and bar weren't in use, but I can imagine it would be a great, social place in the summer.
