“Very cool boutique hostel/hotel.”
Reviewed November 26, 2012 via mobile

Landay Barcello. Really cool building, big rooms with high ceilings, and comfortable beds. This place has real character, it looks more like a boutique hotel than a hostel. Shower was a bit rubbish. Location in the centre is great for the bus to the airport.

Overall I enjoyed my stay there.
The hostel is housed in a classical building including a tiny inner courtyard. The whole place is very clean, bathrooms and facilites (kitchen, living room, TV room) are modern and in good condition. Staff were great at any time, the bed was really comfortable, big with a new matress. Most nights it was dead quiet.

I only rate it average, though, because:
One night the owner had a barbecue in the courtyard, making sleep almost impossible.
During four days, Wi-Fi never worked.
Hot water worked only on the first day!

Room Tip: When it's full, try to get a room not facing the courtyard as people there might be chatting lon...

Dear Fahrgabunt,

thanks for your opinion, we really appreciate your coment and we would like to make sure you know what happened those days.
We had some electric issues, that caused our Wi Fi failure and took down the water heater for 1 and a half day.

Cheers.
Guys at Landaybarcelo.

We found ourselves in the neighbourhood during the Independence holiday, looking for a hostel that had been closed down. A friendly local pointed us to this hostel, which we were unsure about as there was no sign above the door. Turned out to be a great decision. Nice private room and the setting in an old mansion is unusual. Kitchen and bathrooms were spotless. Staff were friendly, and on hand when needed.

I spent a week in this hostel, and the place is really cool! The staff is very helpful, the place is very clean, the kitchen is fine for making some food and it's a secure place. If I ever go to Santiago again, I'll stay there.

After a three month trip around South America Landay Barcelo Hostel was an amazing breath of fresh air. It is a gorgeous little hostel that has been beautifully decorated. It's is very clean and well looked after and the beds are extremely comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped and spotless. It's well located between two underground stations and only a couple of stops away from the central bus station. The staff were great, always accommodating and very helpful. I would recommend this hostel to everyone. It really was an amazing place to end our trip.

I am a single woman (let's just say over 45). I always stay at hostels because I like the safety aspect of this type of accomodation. The location, just around the corner from Ave Brassil was perfect. I felt safe walking to the many eateries not 5 minutes away. The walk into Santiago central was 10 minutes. I booked a single room and it was perfect. So clean. Nice sheets and pillow, soft towels. The staff were friendly, informed, helpful and the 24 hour on site staff was terrific. Airport bus 5 minutes walk away. Great place.
