Only two bathrooms and toilets for the whole floor and this was very inconvenient. There was only one power outlet in the room which slept 8 people which meant you couldn't charge your phone overnight. The wifi also did not work in the room, and only appeared to work downstairs in the common area. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

I warmly recommend Roots and Boots Hostel in Santiago! The staff couldn't have been friendlier or more sweet-hearted. It was a perfect kick-off place for our camino. The garden in the backyard made up for the very basic room facilities.

There are no lockers in the rooms and the rooms can't be locked. There are no real sheets and bed linen and the kitchen is dark, cold and wet in winter so that the atmosphere isn't very comfortable. But the livingroom is nice and the bathrooms are big and clean.

Hostel is in close proximity to the city center. We stayed in December at the hostel was freezing cold! Also, the walls are like paper and you can hear everyone talking and moving through out the building.

I could not believe that even though it was freezing cold outside there was no heat on inside whatsoever!!! I was too cold to sleep AT ALL with only one blanket and no heat. The "towel" that is provided is basically just a piece of paper and the doors to the bedrooms don't lock. Bathrooms could be cleaner. Waste of my money.
