I have traveled throughout the world on numerous occasions and CasAltura is one of the best hostels I have stayed in. It markets itself as a Boutique hostel and it is. This was not a party hostel yet you could meet other interesting travelers that stay in hostels. The service (Italo, Evelyn, Eduardo & Mabel) was outstanding and the staff was always available to help. Being a runner I found the location in front of the park beneficial. Also, the location was in the center of all Barrios with easy access to the metro. The roof top lounging area really provided a good place to hang out and cool down when the heat become too much. The constant chatter around the hostel was "This is the best hostel I have ever stayed in". I look forward to my next trip to Chile and will stay at CasAltura.
