My wife and I stayed with Rudy at Blend Hostel one night 10/18/2012 upon entering Chile and one night 11/09/2012 upon exiting Chile. Rudy is a fantastic host with extensive knowledge of Santiago, Chile and the world. He is very attentive and can direct you to great places. His hostel is perfectly located near Cumming Metro for easy access to discover all of Santiago. You can also walk easily into the bustling City Centre. Rooms are comfortable and meet a traveler's needs.
