My boyfriend and I stayed for two nights and really enjoyed our stay there thanks to Jonathan and the other guests. It is a big house that you instantly feel at home in. Jonathan and Valentina were very helpful and friendly and Jonathan gave us great tips and recommendations for where we should go next in Chile. We had a double room which was huge and the bed was comfortable, and not just two singles pushed together. The breakfast was basic but sufficient, the pancakes on Sunday morning wee great! The Friday night BBQ was great to get to know the other guests. The wifi was fast and occasionally reached our room but it was fine to just use it downstairs. The location was great, a quiet area within walking distance to the main tourist attractions as well as the metro and a supermarket. The kitchen and bathrooms were clean. The only negatives were waiting having to wait a while for the bathrooms to be available and the floors were very creaky but these are minor and I would definitely recommend this small and friendly hostel.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- WINNER OF THE HOSTELBOOKERS 2013 EXCELLENCE AWARD FOR CLEANEST HOSTEL IN SOUTH AMERICA. Come experience a boutique-style fusion of CALIFORNIA SURFER and KNIGHTS OF THE ROUND TABLE, nestled within a large 100 year old house in one of Santiago's most unique and safest neighborhoods. My name is Jonathan, a lifelong traveler and California surfer. This hostel is new, a place I created for backpackers, students, ocean lovers, and gonzo spirit soul surfers. I decided not to cram the rooms with beds so you and intimate groups of new friends can stretch out and have the entire house to yourselves, complete with a large kitchen, patio with BBQ, garden, LED TV room, dining room and computer room. Party all night long or take a moment to relax alone. It's all possible here. We are strategically located in the heart of Santiago, in an area of great historical, cultural and natural value. This exclusive area is very close to the typical places of the city: Parque Bustamante, Plaza Italia, San Cristóbal Hill, Barrio Bellavista, Rio Mapocho, Parque Forestal, a large supermarket, laundromats, restaurants and more. ... more less
