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!

Just ok. Nothing to right home about. Good place to crash as a stopover and a well equipped kitchen. Close to supermarkets but quite a walk to anything interesting. Not too loud so you can get a good nights sleep and beds are comfy

We stayed in the double private room, and the bathroom looked like it hadn't been cleaned for a long time. The shower was the worst. But the bed was comfy and staff were helpful and friendly

We arrived at this hostel at 8am on a Sunday morning. The guy on reception was useless - we asked him a few questions, such as can we wait here until check in? What time is check in?.. he didn't know the answer to any of them! Loud music from 9am to 12pm. No coffee at breakfast only tea. Not in the best location, about 20 mins from the centre. Stay in Providencia or Bellavista area.

One of the best hostels during my 10 week South American backpacking holiday. Would certainly stay here again. Friendly, helpful staff. Nice size hostel.
