I had a room for 2 in may. In this time, there the nights have about 8-10 degrees, what can be very fresh, because they only have very thin blankets and no heaters. But it was ok. The only problem was the condition of the shared bathroom. One of two toiletts were broken all the time and not very clean. The showers gave so less water, that you have to shower a long time to get even wet. Service was very friendly and could speak english. All in all 7,5/10 points.

This hostel is located on the town-center. Really good!!erfect! Subway so close, and all the things to see are close t Staff is nice. In the dormitory, you have a little place to put your stuff. It's good! There is a breakfast but REALLY POOR (2 slices of bread, with ham and cheese, and marmelade. And yoghurt so bad.) And the showers: nothing inside to put your soap/shampoo... not really clear. And you can see your neighboor of shower because the "wall" between 2 showers is really transparent.


It's beautifully located with a great view upon the plaza. Everything's tidy and clean, we were actually positivly surprised! We can really recommend the place. unfortunately the internet was almost useless since slow as a snail.


The Hostal Plaza de Armas is very down now, dirty and badly managed! We arrived there and after two rooms terribles and dirty (every thing: bedsheets, towels, floor, walls, etc). The first room was on another floor in the building Fernandes Concha. Very dirty, malconserved, in a corridor habitaded by families in one room each. The other bedroom also was terrible and we ask to leave.


Braeckfast very basic, no cereals or something else. Toilets and showers where always dirty (morning and evening). Showers where also bad, not enough runing water. Very bad when you wanna wash your long hair.

Great location and breakfast. Although a bit of a pain in the arse waiting for the lift(6th floor) every time you need to come in and out of hostel. The private room I had smelt of blocked sewerage and on the morning I checked out the receptionist tried to charge me and extra 8,000 pesos for apparently bringing 2 girls back to my room. I WISH I HAD OF!


Staff not very friendly and this was first impression of Chilli, Santiago. Rooms nice and big but had to wait till 11pm for sheets.


Amazing location, friendly staff. One night we were up partying very late with no problems, next night got asked to be quiet at 930pm.


everything was ok, except the fact that no water after 1:00 AM
