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!


enjoyed our stay here. central location and friendly staff!!!


Bad entrance but inside it's nice


Staff were very friendly and helpful
