“Stayover night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014

Just a night stayover in Santiago so did not have much expectation, we just need a place to stay and rest.

Since we stay in the andes apartment, which is a block away from the hostel, checked in at 2pm something, room is out of our expectation which is good indeed. Equipped with a small kitchen you can cook with, the room is clean and the WIFI is okay during my stay.

The next early morning we check out and go ahead to the airport, we booked the taxi service at the counter and the taxi came on time, much appreciate.

There is a supermarket right next to the apartment, so convenient. And this hostel just across a road to the railway station so is easy to access.

This is an inexpensive option in the centre of Santiago, well located in the Bellas Artes district. The apartments are located a block away from the hostel, between Merced and Huérfanos. The apartment was tiny but comfortable, with an almost useable kitchenette and a small refrigerator. It is conveniently located next to a good supermarket. Breakfast in the hostel on Monjitas is included, but it is not good -- fake juice, fake coffee, fake dulce de leche, and salty eggs that run out very often, all in a small room with limited places at the basement of the hostel. The apartment was cleaned every day, but we had to ask for a third towel daily because it was always removed when the room was cleaned. This is a reasonably priced option but the apartments are run like a hostel.

It's a great place to stay! Cheap and clean with plenty of fun events and lots of socializing. Mornings and nights in the common room are very lively, and you can always find someone to talk to. It seems to be very well run, and the people working were always happy to help me! I would definitely stay here again.

The staff were really helpful and the location is pretty good. The main thing to remember is that this is a hostel! So lots of youngsters and the energy that goes with it. The place was very hip and a nice place to hang around but it was a bit noisey at times through the night. The rooms were basic but clean. This place worked for me but it did remind me that I am getting old. I rate it average based on the basic and slightly noisy rooms but I can imagine a younger person rating it very good.

I was totally shocked when I saw our service apartment. Its located centrally and very safe. Since we took hop on-off bus, the hop on location was very near to our place of stay. We stayed in a 1BHK apartment. Very clean apartment and laundry services. There was a supermarket just next to apartment. We enjoyed our stay.

Andes Hostel is in a great spot of downtown Santiago. There are always activities going on in the hostel and the staff is super friendly and helpful. Andres helped us plan transportation and tours around the city.

I stayed at Andes Hostel for a week in July of this year, and I have nothing but good memories! All of the receptionists speak English and Spanish, which was helpful for me because it was my first time in a Spanish-speaking country. Our favorite receptionist Andres helped my sister and I get acquainted with the area and also taught us some chilenismos (very helpful for learning chilean spanish). It was definitely the cleanest hostel I have ever stayed in, and felt very comfortable sleeping there. My favorite part was the events that they have - there's something going on almost every day of the week that makes it really easy for travelers to get together and talk, eat, party, etc. Stay here!
