Really nice hostel. Good staff and atmosphere. Beds were very comfortable but the hostel was a bit on the cold side. The location is great, close to metro, supermarket and Plaza Italia. Would stay again.
It seems to be a house turned into a hostel so feels quite homely. It is in a residential area so good if you want a quiet night's sleep but maybe not so much if you want to be with the parties. Good kitchen and common area and when we were there everyone was very friendly.
I have nothing negative to say about this hostel! It was really relaxed, the staff were extremely kind and welcoming and I felt like I was at a friend's house rather than a hostel. Hope you guys enjoyed the pisco!
Castillo was an awesome stay for my travel. It was the cleanest place I´ve been on Santiago and the staff were just sweethearts helping me out with my no-spanish problems (!). There was a brazilian girl that even tho when she was not working she was available to give advices on my language! Awesome!

Good location near the bars and restaurants in Bellavista. Staff were super friendly and gave us good recommendations on where to go in the evenings. Overall a good atmosphere and a fun hostel, and Duke is one of the funniest dogs we've met on this trip - even if you don't get to see him skateboarding.
Nice hostel, good location, clean and friendly staff. Beds are very comfy! Bit cheeky that you are charged to use the kitchen or showers after check out, first time we had seen a something like this - eapecially since the kitchen isn't that great.
awesome hostel, very friendly people and i felt welcome strait away, as a solo traveller that is important! made some great connections here and would recommend to everyone. Only thing that could improve is breakfast, other than that all good!
Small, friendly hostel with nice patio and amiable dog. Location good, close to metro and walking distance to supermarket, bars, cafes etc and on a quiet street in a nice part of town.
Awesome staff, super friendly and helpful, cool mix of guests, nice rooms and clean bathrooms. Internet is pretty slow and the floors upstairs creak with every step, but after you've had a couple of pisco sours the beds are super comfy and you don't hear a thing. Quiet location and a noise curfew, but still walking distance to party areas. A lucky last minute find.

Cool hostel with good atmosphere. Good kitchen and spacious rooms. Staff are very chilled. Would definitely stay again.
The staff is extremely helpful and welcoming (I even got a hug goodbye from one of the receptionists on my way out!). I stayed three nights and came back for two more. They don't advertise 24-hr check in, but I had a late flight and they were more than willing to accommodate me. Located in a very nice, chill neighborhood, extremely close to the metro and bus lines.They are by no means a party hostel, but they also aren't so strict as to keep you from having fun. I will definitely be back here!
We stayed in the double room which was huge! We had a balcony looking out onto a quiet, sunny street. The location was great - so close to lots of lovely little areas, a big supermarket and the subway too. We weren't in the party bit, though - that was just a short walk away. The one disadvantage was the wifi, which was intermittent to the point of frustration. Regardless, we tried to stay again when we returned to Santiago - unfortunately, they were full. Nice place :)
Nice quiet hostel, very friendly staff, beautiful neighbourhood. Breakfast is basic but nice. Good wifi, kitchen and areas to chill out. Highly recommend.
Hard for us to comment to much as we only spent one night here. The breakfast ran out only 20 minutes after it started and the girl at reception didn't seem to happy about replenishing it. Didn't find the place to have a great atmosphere but perhaps if we stayed longer we would have had a better experience.
Great hostel - very fun and friendly atmosphere, but still very calm and quiet at night. Definitely a good place if you want to meet nice people but also want a good night's sleep! Waffles for breakfast are a nice touch, and Duke (the dog) is a sweetheart, sven if he is a bit boisterous at times! Would love to go back someday.
Nice hostel, but the owner was away when we stayed there. The girls looking after the place were too busy to really worry about running a hostel. I'm sure it's better when the owner is there
Really cute spot! friendly guests. the staff was super helpful. there was parking available right there. they had a barbecue the night we stayed
Great hostel, with an exceptional atmosphere. Good chill areas, and superfriendly staff make this hostel absolutely awesome!
Stayed here several times and always a good place to stay with friendly helpful staff
