The "Hostal 168 Santa Lucia" is located just opposite the Cerro Santa Lucia in the center of Santiago de Chile. The subway station "Santa Lucia" is not far away, so you can reach it quite easily from the main bus station or the airport. The staff at the hostal is friendly and helped us with all problems.
The Hostal is mostly frequented by backpackers, so one cannot expect the comfort of a high class hotel. But the rooms are big enough and equipped with the simple things, one needs. You can choose between private bathrooms and shared bathrooms. But the bathrooms are horrible. Our private bathroom was so small, that one could hardly turn around in it. The shower was coverd with mildew and it took more than two days for the cleaning person to refill the toilet paper ... .
The room was not cleaned up during the whole time of our stay. The waste was not taken away, so after a short time, it got somewhat uncomfortable in the room.
Breakfast was ok but nothing special. One pretty good thing is the nice roof terrace with its beautiful view over the Cerro Santa Lucia.
In conclusion: The Hostal 168 Santa Lucia is ok, if you are just planning to stay for onne or two days. The price is ok. But do not expect anything special and do not expect a very clean place ... .
