Nice view to the cathedral in the center of Santiago. Nice facility and very nice kitchen - perfect for groups.


Nice, friendly staff and very clean. Not very lively, but that's probably due to the fact that most people (students) just come for a few nights, looking for a more permanent place to stay.


Backpacker hostel mostly. Location was nice. Room was a bit humid and hold, but it was in the middle of january. There was a couple of extra blankets and a heater in the room. Kichen in the garden was nicely equipped, but very cold. You don't get a key, the code for the hostel door changes every day tho and there're a couple of lockers in the hallway. Showers were nice, but men-women together. Wify was very poor, didn't reach the rooms. But overall a nice homely stay. Bring your sheets tho.


No heating, paper bedlinen. Very low-budget, low standards.


All doors are unlock (you don't have a key for your room and you don't habe a locker, so anyone can come in and take your stuff). They say linen inckuded, but it false, it's just a paper-plastic rapper to but on too and protect the bed... it really wasn't the best place... but for one night bakpacking it can work... but I wouldn't stay longer if I were you...


This place was absolutely immaculate and the staff was super friendly and helpful. I wish the wifi signal reached the upper levels and that the transept windows above the doors were shaded, as the hall lights made it difficult to stay asleep. Otherwise, this was a great experience.

We had an amazing time in Santiago, partly also due to the extremely nice staff at the hostel. We thank them for all their help, recommendations and for taking very good care of us and making us feel like home during our stay. We especially appreciate that being 5 we still could have a 6 person room to our selves so that we could lock the door and not have to worry about our instruments during the daytime. We hope some day to be able to go back for a visit.
