My girlfriend and I rented an apartment across the street from hostel, great building & great view from the terrace. But hostel staff is very incompetent, needed to ask 3 people before getting basic answers. Check-in was hectic. Room needed to be re-cleaned due to hair on floor and tub, towels were missing, no soap provided. I imagine it is more hectic if staying inside the actual hostel.

Small hostel with great atmosphere. Nice chillout area and terrase with bar. Everything is available and the included breakfast ist really good for Chile. good restaurants and bars are close by, also 2 metro station. Nevertheless it takes some time if you go by foot to the city center. Great thing is, that you can go to the "partner hostel" Casa Roja, where you can enjoy the pool and good parties at night time.

Amazing hostel in a great location, near 2 different metro lines. The New Year's dinner was really good value, and the sister party hostel with the pool is huge and close by. The kitchen didn't have an oven, but otherwise the facilities were great. Beds were also comfy. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Pros: Good location in barrio brasil, beds are big and comfy with lamps for each bed (but some lamps didn't work), ladies bathroom is good, the music is loud but they turn off at night before midnight, nice place to make friends. Cons: The male bathroom was terrible, dirty and there are only two shower and one of them didn't have hot bater. Some rooms are small for six bed and internet was horrible, slow and didn't work many times.

One of the nicest hostels I've stayed at while in South America. The facilities are fantastic; bathrooms, common areas, kitchen, etc. Atmosphere was kind of off, seemed like the staff didn't interact much with eachother or with guests. But overall a really great place. Also a plus that they have their sister hostel with a pool that you can use.

This hostel is a must, stay at least for a day and you'll end up staying for more than a week. Although main places such as La Moneda, Cerro Santa Lucía, etc. where a bit far away (30 minutes walk) its surroundings have everything when it comes about hanging out (never forget Casa Roja's parties at the swimming pool, the sister's hostel which hosts around 150 guests), street art, parrilladas, marisquerías, sushi bars, peruvian food, chinese food, pizzas, a big supermarket (Santa Isabel).

It's a really great hostel for solo travelers. Nice atmosphere, a bar, a lot of commom rooms and it's beautiful. They have music, a guittar and it's super nice. However, we booked a private room and I don't recommend it. Walls are papper thin. The window faced the street and the courtains were transparent, so at night if we turned the lights on, everyone could see us from the outside. The bathroom doesn't have a door, only a courtain, and it can be really embarrasing. Breakfast could be better.

I came to this hostel with some friends and it was super awesome. Nice little outdoor patio and bar to chill in, and the best thing is that you can go to Casa Roja which is like a block away and use their pool and outdoor bar. So basically you can party at Casa Roja and come back to Princesa to relax and chill out. Best of both worlds! Good size beds too and good people working the desk. Loved it.

This hostel is dope! I had such a good time here even though I only stayed for a short while. Breakfast was really good (they alternate between eggs and oatmeal, but always have bread and dulce de leche mmm). The decorations are funky and it has a good vibe. Helpful staff and good music :)

Princesa had great vibes, it's clean and cozy, not expensive, and there's always a good crowd!

the last ones are always the best...this was my last hostel in chile returning back to santiago, and defenetly this is the godmather of all the TPI Hostels, excentric, unique, perfect decoration and colors, make of this medium size hostel a very cozzy spot with great location next to bars and restaurants in BArrio Brasil and 3 blocks distance from subway. The best is that we make noise and use the pool of theri brother La Casa ROja hostel next to it and we came sleeping back in the best real mat

An excellent hostel, one of the best we've stayed in so far. It's decorated really nicely, has great staff and a big kitchen. There's a supermarket nearby and a metro station within a ten minute walk but it's a brisk 20 minute walk to get to the main area in the city centre. The staff are very helpful and the free breakfast is good (oatmeal, juice, bread, jams, tea/coffee, eggs on Sundays). Good value for money overall.

I've stayed at this hostel on two separate occasions, totalling about a month. The staff are excellent, always willing to help and are all extremely friendly. The dorms are great value for money, each bed has it's own blind for partial privacy, which many other dorms lack. They also have a large shelf and personal plug sockets. The facilities are great. Well-stocked bar, and a large kitchen to cook your own meals. The general atmosphere is amazing. I would highly recommend this hostel!
