This is the best hostel I have stayed in during my six months trip! Everything about the hostel is perfect. It is beautifully decorated, all facilities are perfect, the staff is professional and very friendly, they have good heaters which is very important in winter time in Santiago. The kitchen is nice and cozy, the patio is perfect. The ambiance is very nice and relaxed. 100% score, I definitely recommend this hostel.
I will suggest the hostel to my friends and places where someone ask support for a trip to Santiago

I stayed here twice and enjoyed both stays. I had to move rooms a few times as I kept extending my stay so slept in practically every dorm. The dorms downstairs can be a bit loud as they are near the communal areas. Staff are helpful and the kitchen facilities are pretty good. power points and lights by every bed and curtains on lower bunks which is amazing!
Well located hostel, with a well-equipped kitchen and a friendly atmosphere. The only inconvenience I experienced is that there's often people making noise until late.
Location is not the best in the city. Not enough toilets. Having some problems in currency exchange rate. But an electric socket and a lamp for each bed. Also cheap, just USD11 a night.
The private room did not attend my expectations (this can vary from person to person). It was different from the pictures. There was an odd smell in the room. Lights were weak so I could hardly see anything in the room. I cannot rate the facilities or breakfast because it was just a quick night between flights.
I was pretty impressed with the city and the hostel, the staff was superbly helpful in everything and the breakfast was delicious! Also, it's cheaper than some others around, what a great hostel!
Great hostel!! Me and my friends had a lovely stay, I will definitely be back again!

This was a really nice hostel! The interior was great, with a lot of common areas to sit and hang out. The beds were comfy, and the bathroom was clean. I have nothing bad to say about it.
showers and bathroom area for boys wasn't great. no hot water at the sinks and no light in the showers
Cheap place but I also staid one very short night so hard to evaluate but I really appreciate the plugs by every bed so you can charge phone and MP3 player during the night with no worries. Suggestion of improvement: there should be female dorm, and not only mixed bedroom it's more comfortable and suitable...
Santiago is CHile mainly, TPI Santiago is the mother of all the tpi hostels, the first, the biggest, the nicest and most profesional of all. I reccomend it because of it good location in this big city, for the helpfulln and friendly staff and its comfy beds for real rest and sleep.
Fantastic hostel! I want to live there! The beds are super comfortable (large mattresses), the female-only bathrooms are really accommodating to a girl's needs (ex: counter space), the breakfast is delicious, the staff super friendly, there's a sweet terrace that's good for having a nice breakfast outside or socializing at night (it's also near the bar), a living-room-style common area.... Basically, my stay was flawless, and if I am ever in Santiago, I'm DEFINITELY coming to this hostel
Awesome location. Amazing staff. Great rooms. Personal lamps, lockers and powerpoints. Would definitely recommend.
Good hostel but has a few issues, many lockers in our room were unusable. The washrooms can be pretty far from the room and I was in a 5 bed dorm located right beside the reception, got woken up at 7am by people passing in and out. expect to be woken up early. the kitchen and chilling area are pretty cool and the staff was really nice.
nice cozy medium size hostel. My first in CHile, everything ok

The showers weren't the best, small space and not a good shower head, but the beds were big and there were multiple powerpoints per bed, and the staff looked up things for us that they didn't know. Also I really liked the area, restaurants around Brazil St were cool
This was the first place I stayed in South America so it holds fond memories. I was in and out of Santiago a few times and always chose to go back to the Princesa. Staff were so friendly. Stefan, Isabell and Julio where really helpful and like the majority of the staff always had a chat with the guests. Great little common area to have a beer and chat to other backpackers. Comfortable beds and hot showers. Could use a few more lockers to store bags during the day while waiting for flights/busses
We really enjoyed our stay. Although the hostel is a 20-30min walk from the city centre, it is a great area to explore with nice bars and restaurants which are very reasonable. The hostel has a massive kitchen and is 5 mins walk away from a supermarket. The staff are really helpful. Only negative would be the wifi as you can only access it in communal areas.
Santiago gave my frind also a perfect stay as it did with me in Pucon. fun and cheap bar, grill and good music going on that makes you stay all day long talking and exchanging cultures in the cool terrace. outstanding breakfast with reggae music! even some yoga going on and jewelery spot! it was full of good energy. thank you Princesa Insoelente! now we are heading soon to the third hostel which is a surf spot! you can easily book at the hostel! highly recomended!
