Located in a great neighborhood. Easily accessible to central Santiago. The Hostel is in an old building which gives it it's charm. The kitchen & lounge facilities are not cramped and even smokers get a place to light their tobacco. Do check out the street art around the Barrio.

Nuevo Horizonte was a great, unpretentious hostel at a great price. It's kitchen and lounge area made it feel really homely, and it's small enough to be able to get to know everyone. The staff were helpful, friendly and accommodating. It has a great location 5 mins from the metro. Would definitely recommend if you want to feel at home!

This was, by far, the worst hostel I've stayed in all my trips. When I arrived, the front door was open, there was no staff anywhere and the reception was empty for anyone do whatever. I had to wait a while for a person who did not speak english and who had very little information about anything I asked. And it got worse when I saw the bedroom (with no windows or locks) and the bathroom (as clean as a sewer and with mold on the ceiling). After that I couldn't stay any longer. Don't go there.

Just ok for a night. The building is really old and doesn't seem well maintained. The rooms were clean and comfy though, but security wise the door must be left open if no one in the room. The showers could use a makeover.

not recommended! Bad location, dirty kitchen, no atmosphere! There are a million better places to stay in bellavista or providencia, they may be more expensive but everywhere is in walking distance from there, you will save money on taxis. This was the only really bad hostel we had in three months in SA. Avoid!.

A nice enough hostel but very quiet and staff aren't overly engaging when they're around. Very strong smell of air freshener which made me wonder what it was covering up. Nice big rooms and hot showers although they don't drain very well and probably need their pipes clearing. Located on bar street but not too close so it's not so loud. OK for a short stay but seriously lacks soul.

Though a bit hard to find, this hostel is only short stroll from downtown and value for money is great. It was perfect for 2 nights.

I really enjoyed my stay here. All of the people were extremely friendly, helpful and nice. If I go to Santiago for a long trip I will definitely be staying here again.

I think the price is affordable for backpackers and dwellings according to the space. The kitchen is important for sociability between people and access the Internet as well. The cleaning complies with the requirements, but need to improve Hostel of the shower baths that are congested when several people bathe the same time.

The location is nice, ten to twenty minutes walk to town, staff is really nice. It's a bit cold in the hostel though. Good value for the price anyway. Thank you!!

The bathroom leaves a little to be desired but has hot water. Allows good interaction with other guests.

This place is cheap for reason - it's very basic. If you don't have much money maybe it's a good place to stay. The staff were nice but they weren't always available - so then guests would answer the door. The wi-fi works fine & the showers are hot. The kitchen is very small and only two of the burners on the gas stove work anyway so it's difficult for 2 people to cook at the same time (there's no hot water in the kitchen sink but you can boil the kettle to wash dishes). No breakfast.

Average cheap hostel. Very cold in winter time. On the day of check-out part (entrance) of the building has been collapsed, so fire-brigade help me to get out.
