Mi amigo got there and was almost molested by the staff, he kept on offering her a Ma ssage at five in the morning, whilst using google translate and showing her the screen she couldn't also keep her bag with her, had to keep it downstairs and not in her room, then he tried to charge us more than what we had already paid for That is all, very good carry on

Overall nice and clean and with a good location. We booked a double private room with ensuite but were given a room with a double bed, two bunk beds in it and no ensuite. Apparently these private rooms are still under construction, not sure why they are being sold online... so they gave us a 15% discount. Also next to a few nightclubs and is noisy. I've stayed in two other hostels in Santiago and while this one is not the worst, it's definitely not the best either.

Very clean hostel. The bunk beds itself were interesting and each had sockets which is always a plus. Nice kitchen and common areas. Close to a ton of bars and clubs. Walking to the subway took about 10 minutes. Highly recommend
Great place. 10 or so minute walk from metro. Great location for food and party. Right near the zoo/funicular up the mountain (must do at sunset but catch the last one back down as the walk is ridiculously long!) Staff speak little English, but they try and they create an amazing atmosphere. Everything was very clean, especially showers. Great area downstairs with bar at night and chill out movie room.
Very nice hostel in a great location. The facilities and wifi were good as too was breakfast. Would recommend, especially if you want to experience Santiago nightlife as it's so close to the main bars...
This is my favorite hostel so far in my South American backpacking journey. Really clean, very beautiful aesthetic, close to everything. I had a private room with my bud which was very nice, totally worth the price. The dorms looked really cool too, if we had wanted that. Breakfast could be better, but otherwise awesome!
Very nice staff, good location, nice double rooms and good breakfast. Nothing to complain about. Definitely worth a stay when visiting Santiago

Great location! Friendly staff! They were very helpfully to me in making shuttle arrangements to the airport for an early morning flight. The night attendant was very nice to call again and confirm when they were running a bit late. (The only time I tend to get a bit panicky when traveling)
Girlfriend and I stayed in the dorms. The layout is very nice, more privacy than a typical dorm with good storage space in your bunk for all of your belonging that locks. Well built. The beds we pretty bad, springs in your back at all times, but with that said were not a deal breaker. Also the place can be quite noisy, so bring some good earplugs. Big, comfortable movie room, lots of movies, and hangout downstairs with good sound system. Really cool place. Free wine night on Mondays.
Male showers could do with a bit of maintenance. Lack of air con made it uncomfortable as my first stop in South America. Decent breakfast, good wifi, great pizza place at the back, friendly staff! Good area too, plenty of bars/restaurants, near enough to the metro to walk from after arriving from the airport. Overall, would recommend!
Great hostel!!! An example for others, a dream for backpackers!
The nicest hostel I've ever stayed at but also the loudest. The house is beautiful and everything is new and modern. Great bathrooms. Plugs in each bed. Great location but very loud from the music at the bars. Also the staff had a party in the yard and were blasting music until 1am right into the rooms. Don't stay here if you need to sleep but the facilities are amazing.
Found this place to be hit and miss. First, the bad. We booked a 'private' room. However the concept of privacy was smashed into pieces by paper thin walls and an open bathroom right outside our door. Was noisy, both in terms of others in the hostel and the noise from the nearby bars. Room was tiny and hot as hell as well. However, staff were really nice and the common areas here were lovely, including a nice patio area out back. If you want bars, they are pretty much next door.
I had such a great stay here. Good atmosphere, really helpful staff, each bunk has its own storage cupboard, lamp and plug. I recommend staying here if you're into the night life too as its right in the heart of Bellavista, one of the lively suburbs of Santiago. It is also walking distance to the central mercado, fresh produce market, Santa Lucia and of course Cerro San Cristobal which is on your back doorstep should you choose to stay here. I'll be staying here again on my return to Santiago.
Very nice hostel, in the fantastic Bella Vista area. Rooms are clean and pretty. Wifi works perfectly and breakfast is good. We recommend absolutely.
