Had a fantastic time at La Casa Roja, very accommodating and facilities were good. Definitely worth recommending. administrative Staff could be a little bit more attentive but tour staff are willing to help with anything which was very helpful. Atmosphere was also great and people were always interacting with each other.

What can I say about this place - first you might be worried at your choice; then you might warm to the place; and finally see it as pretty good. Seeing water from showers dripping onto the bottom floor bathroom was a bit disconcerting but it was fixed pretty quick. This is a big hostel with a big hostel vibe so it is hard to enter into the social mix, especially when some are staff, but the best bet is to plonk yourself front and centre at the pool-side bar and grab a beer! Good times.
This hostel is absolutely huge! tons of space and bathrooms so your never waiting for a toilet or shower. I found the cleaning times odd, the bathrooms were always a mess in the mornings. Showers didnt always have hot water. The outdoor pool is amazing, great social hangout spot .. lots to do when just hanging out for the day at the hostel. Ping pong table, hammocks, cricket cage. Overall, a good experience. I recommend this hostel! ALSO.. sign up for the free city tour, great guide!!
A good hostel. Although it's a 'party place', the building is so huge that you can always find some quiet place if you want/need to read something, work a little, or just be alone. On the other hand, if you do want to party, there're always lots of people (it seems to be always full!), a nice outside area, a pool, a bar, etc. The pace may be a bit exhausting if you are not on the mood to party everyday, but for a short stay and a cool vacation period, it is totally recommended!
Long term stayers are common and some staffpeople are living at the hostel. The plugs haven't worked. Luckly to stay only one night. Didn't knowed that the breakfast isn't included.
Words cannot describe how amazing this hostel was. Hands down best hostel ive been to in South America. Great staff, clean, quiet rooms, parties in the back yard area, the pool is great (yet somewhat cold), always some sort of social outing to go to or attend. Plus the building is gorgeous, and located in the beautiful barrio Brazil.
Loved this hostel. Great mix of partying and chilling. The pool is beyond what I expected for a hostel pool. I would complain about how cold it was buuuuut it's not possible because no hostel in the whole of South America is like this on! Plussss a cool dip in the pool cures any hangover. I heard they do good BBQ but didn't get the chance to test it. The rooms were nice and clean. The beds are really squeaky though, even squeak when you breath haha. The breakfast is awesome too!,
Good place to stay if you are looking for a quiet hostel. Lovely garden and nice swimming pool
Great pool staff were really friendly with good English the only problem I had was it was so much fun in the hostel that I did not see santiago a good reason to return I guess
Awesome hostel, had the best time. The staff at the front desk was not very welcoming but other than that they were nice. They don't seem to understand their own booking system and a lot of people had to change rooms and they told us it was full even though there were a lot o empty beds. The pool is definitely not at 26 degrees but it was nice anyway. There are a mixture of families and backpackers staying there.
Lovely hostel which offers you barstools in the swimming pool. An absolute must :).The hostel is located in the bohemian area Barrio Brazil.The hostel's kitchen is very well-equiped, the bar well-stocked and the swimming pool is clean. They have an own indoor bar and organize several parties/dinners per week. It is very big, so you have to make effort to get into touch with other people. One of those rare places in South America where you can throw toilet paper in the toilet (HAPPY EUROPEAN)
The building is beautiful and its nice having a pool and a bar outdoors, but its a big hostel, so it lacks the charm and intimacy of smaller hostels. Here your not always shure who is staff and who is not and there are to many guests for you to know more than half by face. Also some of the staff was not very informative or helpfull. The hostel organizes social things like pool partys and thats great if you want to party. Its quite near the center and close to a subway station.
Big hostel which is great for meeting people. Nice kitchen and great swimming pool. Class to have a cricket net in the garden too. There's also table tennis and a bar which you can swim up to! Class. My room was great: very spacious but the floor creaked a lot. There are lots of restaurants and bars close by and the metro station is near too.
Huge! Definitely a party hostel, but there are many spaces to hang out, didn't feel crowded. Great kitchen and outdoor area, the pool seemed clean enough to use. The dorms were hot and crowded, and you can hear the backyard party in the dorms
Nice big hostel. Swimmingpool is ok, not that clean, but nice to cool down. Rooms are big, and also the kitchen!
Hostel was nice but staff on the desk were un helpful. Breakfast was good..
The guests staying here are awesome, but the staff aren´t very helpful and come off as pretty rude, except for the chef who's really nice and gave us a good deal on left over food he had. If you like to drink pool side then this would be a good hostel, but stay away from the staff.
Stayed here for 2 nights and had a blast. Great big hostel, swimming pool and bar. The staff is friendly but they are all travellers which makes the service a bit chaotic at times. Would recommend it.
The hostel is located in a beautiful and spacious old building. The staff unfortunately is extremely slow, though kind people. The pool is nice, the kittens are sweet and the garden is a good place to hang out. Wifi didn't work in our rooms. The kitchen was very big.
Need to give a special mention to a member of staff ( I think he was called Gustavo ) who was super helpful with me at this hostel. Really good member of staff and went the extra mile so to speak in order to help me. Thanks. Hostel is a cool hostel with a pool if that's what your after. Location is good also.
