Good to come across a hostel with a communal kitchen. Definitely a good location. Only stayed for a night, but its close to the park/bella vista and other great touristic points of Santiago. This hostel could definitely improve on some points. A female only dorm is always good. I stayed in a room that had 6 beds, when it could really just have 4. That way the owners could charge more for the bed, rather than cramming dorms with bunks. Also decided to avoid to shower; the bathrooms are grotty.


Cold or non functioning showers.


The Hostel was great, but we had lack of water in my second day. I hope this was just an incident.

Close to the metro and also walking distance to some sights. Breakfast isn't the best, but OK. Bathrooms are very small. We stayed in a double private room, could do with some renovation and new sheets. Also our room faced the street so was noisy and we were woken by the buzzer during the night. Security was good, you had to be buzzed in and out. Staff helpful.


A Very good hostel, nice people, nice place, good staff. It was an amazing experience.

Muchas gracias chicos. Fue un gusto tener con nosotros a una linda pareja como ustedes. Saludos


Really cool place to stay and a good opportunity to meet people


Bathrooms were a little dirty and wifi is only in common rooms, otherwise it's a perfect place! Very easy to get to, and we were able to leave our bags locked up when we went skiing all day long after we checked out! Paying with US money makes it cheaper too!


The bathroom / showerrooms were perennially flooded, hard to use the toilets etc without getting feet / shoes wet. Grim staff. Very few smiles - 2.5 smiles in 24 hours. Disengaged. Cold, tiny individual rooms with no heating. Breakfast was bread, jam and some orange-flavoured drink. And coffee and tea. But, it is in a really great location.
