Really really nice staff, they are quick to invite guests to events and show them around. Trilingual english/french/spanish. Excellent location too. MAJOR recommendation: lockers in the rooms. You have to be let in by a staff member so that security is good but there is no way to secure your belongings in the rooms!!!
I might skip this place if I was to return to Santiago. There is no AC so all the windows/doors are open all the time. There are lockers but it leaves something to be desired security-wise. They also play music in the courtyard VERY LOUD and late at night and since all the windows/doors are open you hear it all the time. I was going crazy when I first arrived because I just wanted a nap but couldn't sleep. And you have to pay extra for coffee at breakfast!!
This is a very nice place -- lots of plants and flowers. The owners are nice and I think they might live on site or nearby, it is a married couple and they are always nearby for questions. They lock the door at night and you have to be let in by one of them so it's pretty safe. Immaculately clean. Good wifi. I would stay here again if I was staying in this neighborhood.
Fairly average hostel, there is no AC so pray you get rooms with windows (only 2 out of 6 on a floor has them), only two showers and two toilets pèr floor. But the staff is really nice and if you have any problems they will help you, they will also help you find things in the city, the hostel has lockers to charge your electronics, good location, very clean, friendly atmosphere.
Very warm room, HOT showers, good location, nice common area, standard breakfast. As far as Uyuni goes this is probably your best bet.
Book an en-suite, the dorms are very cold! The other rooms are really nice. Extremely nice staff, there is a nice atmosphere that is friendly but not a crazy party hostel. Very clean, an interesting building (an old house).

Rude and impatient staff, always seemed irritated and were incompetent and slow. Checking in takes twice as long as it needs to. One night the security door to get to the rooms broke, I went to tell staff and was told she knew but hadn't "gotten to it yet." I thought it should have been a priority, especially with the bar in the lobby. Upstairs one of the toilets is broken so there is basically one toilet for all females on the hall. Very VERY small rooms but I will say the location is great.
If your idea of fun is going all the way to Berlin only to drink American beers and eat American food in an American restaurant on the ground floor of your hostel, and then to run around the halls screaming and acting like you've never had a drink before, then this is the hostel for you. However, if you have even half a brain cell, you might want to skip this place.
Impossible to find at night - don't even try it - but if you can find it you'll see a lovely hostel with great amenities, very clean and spacious and good location.
this place is great - definitely more a hotel than hostel. right on gran via but you cannot hear the noise. the location couldn´t be greater and the rooms were clean and spacious. would stay here again.

we had a great time here, it is a very nice place - clean, safe, affordable, really nice rooms. we would stay here again, and did on our return to barcelona. it is not a "hostel environment," it is more like a hotel. we loved it.
