Great Location, great staff.


Perfect location for spending a few days exploring the city, staff are chilled, felt very welcome, upstairs TV room is a great place to chill (and write this review). Just brace yourself for the cold power-showers ;-)


Not the nicest hostel, but the location was amazing. Great breakfast as well. Common areas were a bit cramped.


The hostel is fine. It is in a great location but the facilities are pretty bad. The showers are cold and super weak and the wifi is slow. Some of the staff is great and really helpful, others seem not to know anything about the city or don't have any interest in helping you. They do organize a lot of events though. I would stay someplace else next time I'm in Santiago

I made a reservation for two people but once we arrive they only had mine. We would have the first night and then leave for another hostel and then back to two nights there. we wait from 11 to 17 pm for the room, they were riding beds and paiting walls. Strong smellThe noise at night is not controled for the management because guests talking higher at entrance and and windown of the room. The staff was not caring, not apologized for the inconvenience and made us feel as if it were our fault.

Very mixed bag. It's a very average hostel that feels very much like a hostel, everything is cheap, shower was broken, hot water was sketchy at best, noisy etc. on the other hand it's a winner of a location and staff were really helpful and nice. So for a short stay to see Santiago it's maybe an option due to the location. Other than that our complaints aren't earth shattering, it's just a bit average.
