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.
i just stayed one night and it was a nice place, unfortunately sort of poorly organized. they wouldnt let us drink our own alcohol when they had a party inside the hostel..i think its pretty normal that you can bring your own alcohol to a hostel. and its not like we had bottels of vodka, it was just a bottle of wine. and when i wanted to have breakfast they were really out of everything including plates..all of them were dirty and no one took care to wash them/bring new ones. it was cool though!
Great atmosphere in this hostel and in a the best location for bars and retaurants. Walking distance to all main attractions. Friendly and helpful staff, good security - they greet everyone that enters which is nice. Beds were pretty standard and breakfast was decent. A great hostel to stay in!
Its a very good point to stablish a basement in Santiago, and then moving to visit some places all around the city.
I enjoyed my stay! would definitely recommend! a little bit confused at the reception desk...

Within walking distance of most things and close to the metro for anything else, staff were very nice and welcoming, facilities were pretty, though the wifi was a bit slow and the bathrooms were a little sketchy. I would definitely not suggest this to anyone who sleeps lightly, but if you want to meet cool people this is the place. I've never been anywhere so friendly and at first I was a little intimidated because I'm pretty shy but I ended up having a great time!
This is a party hostel if there ever was one. Every night there are people drinking and dancing late into the night on the small dance floor in the courtyard. This means it can be very difficult to get some sleep. The cheapest rooms are the loudest. If you want to party, this is the place. If you like to get up early and go do day trips, you should pick a different place.
