pros:
Place is nice. May be a little bit too expensive to be honest, but other hostels charge you the same for less, so its ok.
nice bed linen
kitchen-sofas tv-pool table-breakfast

cons:
although towels are included, its VERY hard to get them. They are constantly "out of towels" (??)

wifi NOT in the rooms

we switch one night to a double bed room and it wasnt that nice, it was very very little, no window, and the bed was still a weird kind of bunk bed: a double bed down and a single one over (??)

--------------------------------------------

breakfast is fine or ok (accurate):
thee/nescafe(not real coffee)
bread/toasts with one kind of jam, dulce de leche, butter
two kinds of cereals
scramble eggs
hot/cold milk

After exploring the entire city, Bella Artes is by far the best area to stay in. We booked in for 4 nights and two apartments for three of us. These are studio apartments in a large multi building apartment complex. 'The Andes Apartments' are just a small random collection in this skyrise complex. They are all identical, nicely decorated and very comfortable. They desperately need better quality knives and a coffee maker or French press though. The grocery store is next door and there are lots of restaurants and sites within walking distance (get a map from the front desk at the hostel building check-in). Supposedly, you get a fantastic view of the city from the rooftop at night (we made the mistake of going to The W Hotel, which no longer offers a rooftop bar).

Our stay here was fantastic except that the electricity blew on our second night, so the flustered receptionist guy moved us from one on the 3rd floor to the 8th floor and then for some reason made us move to one on the 6th floor the following night. I thought they were upgrading us for a night, but no they were all the same. This was a hassle with all the luggage and groceries, but at least there's an elevator.

Walk or take the tram if possible. Taxis are as expensive as NYC. Negotiate a price ahead of time. We got in one with a rigged meter.

This is a huge apartment block run by the same people who operate a hostel a block away. You check in at the hostel front desk and have breakfast at the hostel. The people at the front desk speak perfect English and could not be more helpful. The hostel/apartment is in a central part of town, just 5 minutes walk from the Plaza de Armas with a grocery store next to the apartments, several restaurants and bars, and one terrific ice cream place, very close by. (Not so much shopping in the immediate vicinity). Our apartment was terrific, modern, with small kitchen, full fridge, balcony, huge bed and even a bathTUB in a large bathroom (but no soap or shampoo). There is daily maid service The inroom wireless router gave a consistently strong signal. Safety is not a concern. Two guards operate a large gate at the entrance to the hotel block which is large
and tall, but high speed elevators are very good. Once inside the gates, you are greeted by small gardens with some trees, white tile, a most inviting environment. We paid US$80 a night for three nights and thought this great value. When we return to Santiago - which we liked a lot - we will certainly try to stay at these apartments again. Breakfast was poor (designed for a hostel), but that is our only quibble. We highly recommend this place.

We are just ending our Chile / Argentina vacation with our final 2 days at Andes Apartments. I can only say fantastic. The apartment is much more than we ever expected and very reasonable price for what you get. We started our trip one month ago at the Andes Hostel which was good too. From the hotel staff, English speaking front desk, to the great breakfast served daily.
The hostel has a lot of fun art work too.

Hostel was really good...geared a little more to younger travelers but great for any adventurous age. The apartments suited us a little better but both are good

We highly recommend either place.

Sadly, unlike many hostels in South America we found this one overrated. Staff were rude or indifferent at best, hostel could have been cleaner, reception lounge area is poky and the storage area was a place where bags were thrown rather than placed, the airless kitchen and breakfast area beneath street level and rooms small and noisy....and really overpriced compared to the spacious and very clean double rooms in nearby hotels such as the Viktoria .....across the road ( though the Viktoria was not really English speaking and unlike a hostel not a great place for meeting other travellers)

Some hostels (a minority) appear to be just too cool and act as if they are doing you a favour by letting you stay there ....we found this to be one of those.

Room Tip: Dont bother
