View and location are fantastic. Beware if you book an airport taxi thru the hostel. The chalkboard says 16,000 pesos and i confirmed the price with the staff. When we got in he told us the price would.be 20,000 if.we took.the city roads or 25,000 on the freeway. This was clearly.fraud, but he told us 16,000 was the old rate and it was impossible to get an.airport.taxi for that price. We got out and caught a meter taxi for 12,000 (10-15 min drive). Hostel taxi was less safe than regular

Its worth the price just by the location. The hostel is exatcly in front of a metro station in the old downtown of the city. You have easy acces to whatever service you want. The dorms were pretty comfy. Its very good for the price.

The dorm here was the cheapest I paid in Chile and it was in a great location. Many lockers and a good kitchen. Only issue was the it was really hot in the room.

We got a double room ensuite. We've found it dirty, full of flies. We've changed rooms, and the other one was cleaner, but had problems on the hot water, and less privacy.

This is such a fine location but very noisy. It seems curious that the place completely lacks any warmth or atmosphere. On the positive side, it is well equipped to handle travellers with disabilties.

Perfect location! We stayed in a double room on the 4th floor so it was more like a hotel than hostel feeling. The double room was very big with perfect view on the plaza. Bathroom is very old with a strange smell but what do you expect for the price at this location? We enjoyed using the facilities of the hostel like the kitchen, living area and especially the nice terrasses with beautiful view! The breakfast is very basic (two toast, one slice of ham & cheese, juice, tea) but ok.

We have booked a Private Double bed room with Private bathroom but there was no water and the room was dirty. We couldn't take a shower. The atmosphere in the hostel was kind of depressive. I really do not recommend.

Plaza de Armas Hostel is a enjoyable place to stay for a couple of nights, especially for the rate they are charging. Downside: the showers only drip a bit, making it difficult to rinse the shampoo from your hair.

Nice Hostel!

The hostel is directly in front of the "plaza de armas" on the 6th floor. So you have a beautiful view over the area and Santiago. The kitchen is well equipped, you´ll find everything you need. The staff is kind of unfriendly, it seems some of them really hate their job. Our sheeds in our room (double room) were kind of dirty. The hot showers worked good!

hated this hostel! we first checked in they had the wrong dates, could have been my fault but after everything that happened during our stay I'm not sure. We had to pay double for a private, awful, the beds were broken and there were holes in the walls. when we moved to the dorms the receptionist was so rude, then lost our reservation again. The ladder broke on the bed and I got hurt. Terrible breakfast, bad showers, rude staff, spotty wifi. The location is great, but that's about it

They functionally do not have showers (besides the water cutting off at 2pm, it hardly works before then anyhow). It's a huge problem. The staff are also really disorganized -- they tried to give my bed to three different new guests while I was there that week.

Couldn't have been happier at this hostel. It's a giant loft that directly overlooks the Plaza de Armas with an awesome community-oriented atmosphere. I couldn't have asked for better!
