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.
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.
I had being 7 months travelling, and after all that time Santiago give a very good surprise in BArrio Brasil with this amazing palace from 19 century from a rich family from chilean aristocracy. 1.400 sq meter construction, swimming pool, palms, criket net and 100 souls having fun inside, like a reality show, but good one. The staff was really friendly to me giving good tips for visiting Barrio Brasil, that for me is very good located, just few steps from subway and a short walking to downtown.
Extremely noisy hostel due to the big rooms and wooden floors. People were also very inconsiderate and disrespectful. The staff did not show us around, nor did they give us a map or advice, very unpleasant way of checking in.
La Casa Roja is a nice place to stay at in Santiago. Bathrooms are in good shape and other facilities are really good. Had a minor problem with one of the employees, for the lack of interest on helping the guests, but the other members of the staff made up for this guy.
The hostel is a lovely building and the garden and pool area are more like a hotel. However the hostel is set in a horrible part of Santiago along way from most of the tourist points. It felt pretty sketchy at night when walking about too. The staff were uninterested and extremely slow. There was I water the first morning so could use bathrooms. I will be staying in Bella vista next time I visit Santiago.
NIce hostel in general, good beds, nice breakfast and service...but the swimming pool was the best by far. It aslo had a bar inside it. What I can tell, they gain my heart with this. Apart from being well manteined, this area helps a lot for meeting people and hang out. Sometimes it can be a bit noisy, buth they offer you at reception the option on staying on their other hostel in the corner that is nicer but more quiet and you can still use the pool...whats best Thanks always to staff
stayed 2 nights in the dorm, mainly to experience a hostel with a pool. wasnt disappointed, staff were overall friendly and mainly spoke English. The day i arrived there was an enjoyable BBQ for 5000 chilean pesos, and was well worth the money in my view. the dorm was spacious, had lockers, wifi connection was a bit hit and miss depending on where in the hostel you were. breakfast wasnt part of the price, though breakfast items were individually priced. enjoyable
Needed to see a doctor, staff really helpful with showing me places to go, then reading the Spanish medication instructions to me.
Great Place Casa Roja. Beautiful house and in the garden you can enjoy the summer in the pool. Nice atmosphere, the staff is always availiabe to help. Recommended.
