    I've stayed here three times now, it is like a hotel with awesome showers, beds and kitchen! The rooms have a router each and also they have a great rooftop. Staff are super helpful but also give a great swift check in (which is really appreciated after long travel days!)

    Very good location, close to bus, subway, shops, restaurants. The staff were friendly and helpful, offering lots of info. There is a common space and kitchen downstairs and a rootfop terrace at the 10th floor. Rooms were basic, beds could have been better, there was only one shower/toilet for a 8 bed dorm, it is not enough. The lockers were narrow for a big pack, but sufficient for any valuables. Services (towels, laundry) seemed a bit expensive. In general it was a nice stay.

    Perfect location, close to metro, main city points. Staff and atmosphere are ok. Bathrooms were not so clean and the hot water was limited. Lockers didn't work very well, it could be opened by anyone if the person tried to.

    I didn't felt very well in this hostel. The lobby looks nice and modern, although the room was very simple with no bed sheets on the bed. The bathroom wasn't the cleanest either, but worst thing was that the entire night people where leaving, including me. I guess most people use this hostel for a gap night before catching a flight, that was at least what I did. The elevator wasn't working, so I had to walk 5 floors up with all my stuff. There was no atmosphere at all, but I didn't expected that

    Very central to a lot of things but no atmosphere if you're a backpacker looking to meet people as there's no bar and nobody seems to hang out in the common area. One staff member we asked about a couple of things such as laundry and nice places to eat wasn't able to help (maybe she was new). Was generally clean and modern hostel, if just looking for a central place it's perfect.

    If you’re looking to socialise, don’t stay here. No atmosphere at all. It’s not a backpacker hostel; seems like a lot of working/business people, no backpacker/traveler types— it’s a very weird vibe; no one socialises. 8-bed female dorm had ONE toilet & ONE shower, which was just unacceptable. There were no other public toilets besides the ONE female toilet downstairs. Clean hostel, central location. Was a decent stay for 2 nights, but I definitely won’t stay here again if I’m in Santiago again.

    I am a picky traveller. But a comforter with hair on it, and clearly dirty is not my idea of a nice place to stay. I actually left the premises after 1 hour. I had booked a bed for 4 nights, when leaving I told the receptionist my reason for checking out so soon and she told me: I am sorry. At least a refund of the 3 nights to come would have been nice. If yiu are really low on cash, this is your place, but you will not find a clean and decent place to sleep on.
