The staff seemed to not know who was in what bed and gave away a bed to a new person by throwing personal property on the floor. We were woken in the night by a staff member calling out for a person who had previously left and obviously did not know who she was or what bed she was in. (Or it was a lovers tiff!). At 4.30am The amineties were very basic and not serviced often enough. The sheets were stained and felt dirty. A cold atmosphere but good wifi and location.

Location was my bad. Didn't realize there were bars all around. very loud area but staff was great. Bathroom could have been a bit cleaner and the locks on the doors could use an update. Hard to lock and unlock.
Kombihostel is a good located hostel. The three nights I spend there it was very very cold. No heat anywhere neither a lot of hot water. Every night a party and noise outside the room. The kitchen is usable but not very delicious. Breakfast is said to be at 8.30 but wasn't ready at that time and an hour later there was very little left. The staff was helpful but not very punctual.
Kombi is definitely a party hostel! But that's not necessarily a bad thing! It also means people are more sociable, useful for a solo traveller. The hostel does group dinners nearly every night and as there is a beer fridge drinking till late is common. It's very much in the heart of the trendy Bellavista area which felt safe, even at night. The wifi works well and the showers are generally ok (just get the shower and timing right).Staff are friendly and always willing to go the extra mile.
If u like to party this is the place for u! Location was next to a lot of bars that were blaring music until 4am! Also lots of other young guests that like to party and were very loud and disruptive into the the late hours. I like to party too but not when I have to get up the next morning at 7am. When I do party I make sure I'm respective to the other guests in the hostel. Breakfast was suppose to start at 8:30am but was often late getting set up. 8:30am is kinda late to start breaksfast
Great hostel. Just to note the stools at the are really uncomfortable.
This is definitely a party hostel and is pretty loud. Served its purpose for a couple nights. It was sometimes hard to tell who the staff were but they were friendly and helpful when found. The laundry service was great.
The hostel is really well located in the Bellavista barrio, and is close to public transport. The dorms and bathrooms are very basic, but the kitchen is well equipped
This is a party hostel. Staff were up late drinking with guests every night & hostel is located on same street as many bars so every night is noisy. WIFI here is terrible. There only seemed to be 1 staff member who could help with questions about the hostel and the city as everyone else was a traveller who was working there for 1 or a few weeks. Never any matches in the kitchen so every night we had to go on a search for fire before we could cook. Breakfast only served around 8:30 - 8:45.
This place could be awesome, but unfortunately the staff are really average, they make you feel like they are doing you a favor by you staying there, its seemed like such a hassle for them to give us any information about anything!
Brilliant hostel. Location could not be better as its 1 block from all the clubs and bars, and only a 10 minute walk from the main sites. Also it's one of the cheapest hostels in Santiago. Good kitchen, good atmosphere (although it's not as good a party as the reviews said - but I think it might just be a low week), really nice patio, mostly friendly staff. You have to be buzzed in so it's very secure. I was going to move hostels but I extended my stay because it was so good
staff not that friendly. door to my hostel dorm cant be closed (red room). loud and bright. dont stay here if u want a good sleep. otherwise location is ok. close to pubs.
Should be great but a lack of cleanliness and staff knowledge and helpfulness brings it down. They need to bring on full time local staff.
This is a party hostel! If you want to sleep at night instead of having a party, this is not for you. Also, the "pool on our huge rooftop terrace" is confusingly neither meant to swim in nor located on the rooftop (i.e. it is a pool billard table in the main hall).
i u want to sleep at night not that easy as many people are always partying, including staff. otherwise good place, goof location and good value for money.
location is good, in between restaurants and bus station (only 4 blocks), english speaking staff is defenitely a plus !! nice activities organised in hostel and very good breakfast, the cleaninglady/kook is making pancakes and eggs in the morning :D we had to leave early to catch a bus and breakfast was already there very early!! great
Very clean, staff nice and helpful when you can find them! Fairly social and a good location to get around the city... Overall nice place to stay while visiting the city
If your staying in the 10bed mixed dorm be prepared for a bit of noise as the window is right next to the courtyard.. But apart from that had an awesome stay! Met some cool people and the owner looked after everyone even took a heap of us out to one of the uni parties!!
Great building and interior design. Staff helpful but I did not sleep one bit here. There was a party every night and even with ear plugs I was up until 5am. It was shaking the building. They could have turned it down a bit. Also the blue room door is broken. Literally if you close it your trapped inside until someone opens it from the other side. And the handle from the outside falls off so there is a huge chance you'd be locked out as well as in. So dangerous you really need to sort it!!
this is a party hostel so u must be in the mood. everyone is cool and super nice but holy hell if it is not a party at the hostel till 6am (was 2 of 4 nights I was there) they will take the party to the club on certain nights (3rd night I was there) & after all that, there are so many loud bars in the area u can't sleep even if the hostel is quiet. is good location to sights & metro, & party street is 1 block so everything is close. breakfast was hard bread & whole fruit. decent lockers.
