I really enjoyed my stay at Roots & Boots hostel: had to finish a deadline and the lovely garden was the best place to do so. GRACIAS!

A nice place to stay after time on the Camino as it's pretty close to the cathedral (albeit across a few congested streets) and has a large garden area for gathering with fellow pilgrims or other guests. It's also convenient that they have a little restaurant inside. No locks on room doors, but there are small lockers available and the front door code changes each day. Pretty simple accommodations with small showers and WC's, but it did the job!

Felt decently clean for being a pilgrim's hostel. Excellent location and just overall a cute little hostel with great kitchen facilities and an adorable patio. The staff were really great and there was a decent atmosphere in the common room. I'd stay here again.

The hostel's backyard is a great place to meet people and enjoy the sunshine. The hotel has snacks for sale, which was useful since there weren't many stores or supermarkets around. Their lentils were great and so was their coffee, but you could probably get a better breakfast deal somewhere around the city. The staff was very friendly, and the rooms were spacious, bright and ventilated. Cons: Late check-in, no lockers, very strange bed sheets (and only a bottom one), and very crappy wi-fi!

To many beds for the facilities. I probably would not stay here again because of that. The people in charge are great. The location is good. Just not enough room in the sleeping areas and tough to coordinate bathroom use.

I had a wonderful stay at this hostel which I can highly recommend :D The beds are comfortable and the staff is very nice and uncomplicated. They knew good suggestions for all my questions and were very helpful. In the morning you can get breakfast and they also have other snacks which can be bought during the day. The location is very near to the Cathedral (about 5-10 min walking) and a beautiful park. The hostel also has a small garden where you can chill in the sun.

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.
