Well . . ! This hostel has not changed much since last year except now the weekday breakfast is not included in the price shame because for someone that spends a night and share the morning on many suits. But if you really need Internet networks must mark a cross has lesser used only for Face Wap or light programs still damage. If the people in charge of the office have tried to change the speed but it rowed serious guys

The hotel manager was fabulous, she helped us getting back our boots that we've forgotten in Frutillar. She did everything she could for us, thanks once again!

Amazing hostel, definitely the best one we have stayed in! Only one sugestion: it would be nice to have a real door at the bathroom in the private room. There was something like a courtain, which doesn´t allow full privacy :) However, the rest of the facilities are great, full of colors, fully clean. The staff is always there, willing to help. Best breakfast ever! you get eggs, coffee, milk, bread, jam, butter, cereal, yogurt and even a piece of lemmon pie! We loved it! Thanks for everything!

Although I only stayed one night before moving onto a hostel with a pool, I really liked this hostel. It was really funky and had some pretty awesome common areas.

Great hostel. Lovely big kitchen, great facilities. Nice comfy big beds with personal reading light, good big lockers. Bathrooms were nice and clean, one shower didn't seem to give any hot water but the other one was fine. Good location, not far from the metro and easy walk to main plaza. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Wifi not always working but ok. Would recommend :)

We have stayed at Lady G and the bed is very nice, but the light that comes from the street is terrible. You must put some blackout there. Also, the fan only works with the light on... strange!

I loved princesa! Such a cute place, very homey and great staff. Great kitchen and a nice bar. Very clean and even the 10 person dorm is nice to stay in, not too crammed at all. Felt very safe there and very comfortable. Very close to all of the bars and restaurants of barrio brasil. I would definitely stay here again. Very clean!

Decent hostel, close to two metro stations, supermarket, plugs by beds which is always useful and a great kitchen too. There's a nice hangout area to watch tv and films and meet other travellers. Staff are mostly volunteers so have some gaps in knowledge but on the whole friendly and approachable. Internet could be a bit faster, otherwise would stay here again. I would also suggest they put bins in the actual toilet cubicle rather outside it to prevent people putting toilet paper down the loo.

yeah you will find here a nice backpackers experience... about bathrooms here paper goes inside the toilet no bins, we have good sistem to get everything way with just one flash so dont worry about that!

Pros - Kitchen is one of the best I've used. Rooms and bathrooms clean, showers hot. Nice living room. Cons / Improvements - Location is fairly far from most of the things you would want to check out, as well as from the nightlife hotspots. However, the metro is closeby. Bar / courtyard atmosphere isn't too lively, some music would help liven it up. Windows need blinds as it gets really bright early in the morning in the room.

if outside of town means out the central square of the busy city it is rigth. we are in the old santiago, patrimonial neighbourhood, Barrio Brasil and Barrio Yungay main cultural and patrimonial attractions of the city find out about it, traditional places to eat and chilean culture around

the hostel is a bit outside of town. The room wasn't very spacious but each person had a locker and every bed had a light and plugs to charge your stuff. They don't serve breakfast and there were only two showers in the girls bathroom.

Nice place to stay, bedroom we had was right next to reception so got woken up early. Other than that it was good, in a nice area with restaurants and bars and near the metro.

Owner Comment (Hide)
yeah there´s only one dorm downstairs, the 5 mixed dorm is cheaper because of its location so make sure you choose any other if you dont want to be near reception ;) enjoy good restaurants in the area Peluqueria Francesa exotic food, old times decoration stylish and exotic, Ocean Pacidfic sea food and great fun decoration and for fast and big sandwiches and great craft beer try Fuente Mardoqueo, all of them in our area.

I really loved Princesa Insolente! It is beautifully decorated, very colorful (even the rooms has color names!) , the rooms are very spacious and clean, this is the hostel with the best mattres that i've ever slept in my trip ! the staff is young and very friendly . There are great common areas to share and meet other people, there is a equipped kitchen. the location is good, supermarket, bars and just 15 minutes walking to the downtown (close to the hostel there are 2 subways station too)

Good facilities and cleanliness. Quite far out of town which isn't too much of an issue due to the subway, but it's not particularly helpful. Atmosphere was very quiet when we stayed there. Facilities were good though

I loved this place! It's really easy to find and close to a lot of places. I liked go walking to the downtown, and there's two or three nearby metro stations, so it's easy to go anywhere. The staff is excellent and the rooms are very confortable, the idea of having a lamp and electric plug per bed is amazing!
