Former motel turned hostel. Nice outdoor common area with bar. Stay upstairs if you're a light sleeper. Room was a bit stuffy and had a lot of noise from passing traffic, but was clean and spacious. Breakfast was fruit and fresh bagel for each guest. Nice kitchen.

Close to the beach and lots of good eating spots. Includes 3 meals a day, which aren't gourmet (duh, it's a hostel), but it saves you time. Staff are fun and will treat you well if you do the same. Rooms are cleaned frequently, but DON'T EAT IN THE ROOMS anyway!

After an initial bad impression--no one told me there wasn't 24-hour reception, so I had to sit outside for nearly 30 minutes after arriving to Santiago at 8am because no one answered the door--Newen Kara redeemed itself. Everything else was good. No bunk beds, really comfy beds, good location, breakfast included. Feels like a family-run place.

I love this hostel, and I've stayed at many. I stayed here in July 2012 and made a point to book here again this month. Comfortable beds, clean rooms with clean en-suite bathrooms, towel use included, huge lockers in the rooms. Excellent location, lovely breakfast included, well-equipped kitchen, fun decor. Maybe there aren't planned in-hostel activities, but you're in one of the best neighborhoods in a big, vibrant city--make your own fun!

No complaints. Kind staff, minutes away from the beautiful Cerro Ñielol, and perfectly warm room. :-) The shower was nice, but it seems like there might be a wait to use it during the high season. (It wasn't completely booked when I was there.) Recommended!

Bed was comfortable, location pretty good, breakfast adequate, and staff were fine. I suppose I shouldn't complain when I only paid US$20 per night, but my unheated room was too cold for me to have a restful sleep even while wearing multiple layers of clothes and a scarf. This place is probably fine during the warmer months, but I wouldn't stay here in the winter.

The staff were nice, the place was clean, and the location not bad (though definitely hard to find at first), and shower had hot water. However, I stayed in a cramped 4-bed dorm on a terrible bed. It was hard to get up to the top bunk, I could feel the mattress springs poking me, and the ceiling was so low I'd bump my head on the ceiling if I sat up. There are three cats running all over the place, so people with allergies should be aware. No breakfast apart from self-serve tea/coffee.

No bunk beds! Lovely breakfast included (with fruit!), lots of chargers for electronics, towels included, Ross & Beatriz have all the info you need and are close to the beach, local market, and supermarket. Wifi worked better for me in the front house. Definitely recommended!

Highly recommended. Gonzalo is a very kind guy who, despite being laidback, runs the hostel well. Toast, coffee, and tea included for breakfast. Hot showers! Hang out in the reception area if you want to be warm; the beds are cozy, but rooms are unheated.

Staff were kind and the lady in charge (who seems to do most of the work) was very warm, although not much English is spoken. Located about ten minutes from the main plaza if you walk fast. My dorm could only be accesed by walking through another dorm, so light sleepers beware. My biggest complaint was that I wasn't able to get water any hotter than barely- lukewarm in the span of three showers. They offer eggs or delicious banana pancakes for breakfast, but they do cost 7 soles. Must pay cash.

Very cozy-feeling place about ten minutes' walk from the city center. Spotless kitchen and even laundry facilities on site, which I found very convenient. Breakfast is generous--try the homemade jam!

The staff here are awesome! I will miss you, Gaby, Ricardo, Fer, and even you Oscar! ;-) Dorms are big, and there's a pool, and free drinking water. Breakfast stays out until 11am for you night owls. The 20 min. walk to historic downtown is balanced out because it's only 10 min. walk to Av. Chapultepec, which has lots of bars and good restaurants. Highly recommended!

This place is blessed with enough space to be a party hostel if you want, or not. Downstairs are the tour booking desk, guest computers, bar, dining area, and swimming pool--so awesome after a day of sweating from temple to temple! Upper floors have large patios where you can find a bit more calm. Rooms are very reasonably priced, but keep in mind that (other than the 50-cent beer), food and drinks are charged at slightly inflated prices. Given the facilities, though, it's understandable.

This place was worth the hype. Clean, spacious room, super-attentive staff, and good breakfast. If you're looking to visit the royal tombs outside of town, they can help you hire a motorbike driver (or other transport, I imagine) to take you there. Highly recommended.

This was a good hostel, but I don't quite get all the hype. The facilities are a bit cramped and there's no air con in the common room, but the rooms and bathrooms are clean, the breakfast is a cut above most hostels, and there's free local beer from 8-9pm. Hanna (sp?) and Lio are helpful in answering questions and booking tickets to elsewhere. I highly recommend paying 100,000 Dong to have the Vietnamese feast that Lio's mother will cook you at another nearby hostel--ask at reception!

Definitely my favorite hostel in Asia, and one of my favorites overall. Gina (?) and her family really make the difference--she is so friendly and willing to help. Dorm room was ensuite, clean, and spacious. Each bed gets a locking closet big enough for a backpack and tall cubbyhole on top. Big kitchen for everyone's use (6 baht per egg) and free bananas! The kind of place you want to hang around for longer... PS: Ask Gina about the hostel romances--maybe you'll get lucky, too! ;-)

I love this place! Best staff ever--Vero, Belen, Gabriel, Luis & Thales--good location close to buses & subte, cool building, two outdoor patios, very clean, cheap dinners on Mon/Tue/Wed, hairdryers in bathrooms. Minor complaints: computer area needs more light and dorms are cold in winter but probably fine at other times. The good about this place far outweighs any negatives.

Nicest hostel I've stayed in over ten years of hosteling! Fantastic location for tourists (though there are plenty of locals about), best beds and showers of any hostel I've ever seen, and Andres, David, and Eliana were all so helpful and patient with me! My only bone to pick is that the trash bins are too small. How can you put six girls in a room, tell them they can't flush toilet paper, then give them a tiny little bin that only gets emptied once a day?!

This hostel had a lovely family-like feeling to it, a cute dog, and a big selection of DVDs for unwinding at night in the TV room. Big thanks to Mike the hostel employee/photographer for being so friendly and taking a group of us to the Independence Day festivities. Dorms are spacious. Make sure you wake up early or take showers at night so you can use the nice big one with the tub!

I wasn't here long, so can't say much. Staff were helpful. There is a lot of outdoor space, so it would probably be a great place to stay in the summer! I appreciated that the room I stayed in was very warm (it was winter), though the entire bathroom did get wet as a result of anyone taking a shower!

Mateo (Matias?) a.k.a. `tano and Gianlucca (sorry if I´m mispelling your names) were wonderful. Full of useful information, and Gianlucca was very helpful when I missed my ferry and had to make last-minute arrangements. Bathrooms were spotless, though they could use more hooks near the showers. Don´t sleep in Room 1 if you want a good night´s sleep--the noise comes straight up from the basement downstairs. PS: Go to the Centro for Arte Contemp.--it´s great but not in the last Lonely Planet.

"Andres" (Tano) and Gianluca are pleased for your commentary. Please excuse us for the little noise and hope to see you again in our nice city :-)

Free earplugs upon check-in had me a little worried about how loud it might get into the wee hours, but luckily, I'm a heavy sleeper and didn't have any problem getting to sleep. A decent breakfast and padlocks for lockers were both included in the price. Staff were nice.
