Best breakfast Ive had in a hostel. Location is nice close to the museums and bars but far from the center. During the winter it can be hard to walk back to the hostel at night. Staff is nice and batheooms are modern and always clean. The kitchen is good but it closes from 10pm to 11am (or something around that) which means you cant make yourself a late dinner or tea. If you stay in the private rooms prepare to go up 5 floors of stairs.

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us, we appreciate you taking the time. We are glad that our staff, cleanliness and free breakfast stood out as such positives during your time here! Yes our kitchen closes at 10.30pm and opens up after breakfast the next day, this is so the kitchen is thoroughly cleaned and ready for breakfast the next morning, as we need to use this space to prepare the free breakfast. We are glad this did not affect your time here too much :) Thanks again for your time, we hope to welcome you back again, The Flying Pig Uptown

The guy in the reception does his job but is not really welcoming. The hostel is modern and has new showers and a lift. Other things are old, such as the beds (which are made of springs and make a lot of noise) and the shower in the private room is really small and the temperature of the water changes on its own to very hot. Breakfast is ok (bread, croissant, butter and jam). It is an ok hostel if you are looking for a place close to the subway and with modern installations.

Very good hostel, in front of the subway. Staff was really nice and helpful. They spoke English, Spanish and even Portuguese. The breakfast is very good. It is very similar to a Hotel, since there are people to make your beads and clean your dishes after breakfast but it keeps the hostel atmosphere in the lobby where there is a bar, a pool table, sofas and good music going on. The facilities are new, there are hot showers that work perfectly. The rooms face the street but are not very noisy.

It's a little bit off the center, like a 5-10 minutes walk, but the rest is perfect. The recepcionist is really friendly and willing to help. She helped us call a transfer and speak to the turism agencies. They have hot showers that really work. The beds are REALLY good and confortable. Best beds I had in Chile. Everything is very clean. Breakfast is great (fruit salad, cereals, yogurt, chease, ham, jam). Very silent and calm place to rest from the heavy excursions in the Atacama.

The girl in the reception was not kind at all, she seemed really fed up. The rooms face the street and are very noisy. There's a fire fighter's brigade right next door to the hostel and you can heare the sirens really lound in the middle of the night. The showers had hot water but would go cold in the middle of the shower and one of the showers was splashing water all over the place and got my clothes wet. My friend and I had booked this hostel for 4 nights but we canceled it after this
