    A very nice hostel with a great atmosphere. The free dinners each night are simple but good. The staff were absolutely fantastic. I stayed far longer than I originally booked. The safes are very noisy when you unlock them, it's not ideal for taking anything out while people are trying to sleep.

    We stayed in a double room. The staff was very helpful and kind. The room was small but the bed comfortable and the bathroom clean enough. The bed sheet didn't look so clean though. The free breakfast and dinner were a great addition.

    To be honest I didn’t like the vibe of this hostel - half of the staff are really rude and unhelpful (the other half is lovely though!:)); layout of the common room was quite dark and didn’t encourage good socialising. The room was super super hot and bathroom had issues. Location is good and quite away from main protest streets. I have booked another hostel on my return to santiago as it wasn’t for me.

    Very noisy, toilets in the rooms.. with no windows... very small social area, people at the front rooms can't sleep because there is a lot of talking in front of the building.. the free dinner consists in lettuce with tomato, rice and a very processed 'chicken' burger, the internet is very unstable.. the door stays 24 hours open and the room doors do not lock... during my stay a guy had his backpack stolen at check in... all the restaurants around are very expensive.. you can't get any...
