The staff was very helpful when asked for information, but the men's room wasn't good. Room 19 is awful.
Very good hostel! Bit dirty in places but it's a hostel, what do you expect! Great atmosphere, great kitchen and most of great staff and people! Definitely recommended!!!!
Need a printer that works for guests and also laundry arrangements. I couldn't get either done here.
Rates for this hostel would be higher if quiteness is ensured outside the dorms. In fact many noises came from the corridors and the other premises of the hostel. I'm not referring to the noises of late nate parties, but at the noises of some guests that they did in the early morning which made harder the sleep of the guests staying in the dorm.
Unfortunately, the most of the staff was not so so helpfull and cleanness also.
Terrific atmosphere, perfect place for the solo traveller. Might be a bit rougher around the edges than its sister hostel, pricnesa insolente, but if you want to make friends and have a great time meeting tonnes of people, then give this place a whirl, it made my trip in santiago.
Atmosphere is perfect. Great for solo travelers. They have a nice bar, a ot of common areas, activities almost every night. Staff is super nice. They could improve the showers, they're a bit old. And the matresses and pillows. The beds aren't so confortable, but the rooms are huge and they have great lockers. Seriously, I've stayed in another hostel in Santiago, more confortable and new, but no atmosphere can compare to the one in Casa Roja. Highly recommended.
The kitchen facilities were great, as were the girls behind the desk, however it is super cold inside. Location is ok
good hostel with friendly staff,,, will be back again
The staff are friendly and helpful, but the rooms are a bit run down or under renovation. My bed was unbelievably squeaky and we'll too short for me. These are small problems, really, and the hostel is in a cool neighbourhood, a short train ride from the city. Being winter, I had no desire for the pool.
I stayed a while back in both La Casa Roja (Santiago) & SIrena Isolente Hostel (Punta de Lobos). I enjoyed both as the staff were super helpful and we happy to have a drink.

Santiago and this hostel was our introduction to - and first impressions of - South America. Now having traveled around the continent for over 2 months, I wish I could do it over again. This hostel is perfectly good. The cold Santiago weather and drafty rooms precluded us from enjoying ourselves so much. The location is not ideal if you're looking to be close to nightlife - that would be Barrio Bellavista. In summer this hostel would be rad - with the swimming pool and pool bar outside.
Iwas really hoping Casa Roja was a friendly and party hostel. I was deeply wrong. The neighborhood is dangeours desert and people got robbed. If u are looking for night party, forget it. Hostel is far away from the clubs and staff will definitely not going to help you with tips or directions. Actually they are not going to help you at all, terrible staff. Not friendly or interactive. Baths were always dirty and the hostel was pretty empty. The hostel looks good, unfortunately we didnt enjoyed.
Good hostel with lots off space. I was there during low season but i can imagine it being a party hostel during high season.
Considering we were travelling in the fall, probably not the pique of travel season, Barrio Brasil seemed quiet. While adventuring for food or fun and glancing at our travel maps there wasn't much hustle and bustle anywhere. We seemed to adventure more towards Bellas Artes where there were more people out and about and more shops open. The hostel itself was the most beautiful, so large and so much presence of history. Also the best hostel breakfast we had on our entire trip!
