    Right across from Plaza de Armas, one of the best locations in Santiago. The staff was very friendly and the rooms were nice.

    Very upscale and clean hostel and cheap. It will be difficult to find a hostel as good as Che Lagarto for even double the price. Good location near Palacio de la Monda and Plaza de Armas.

    My stay was awesome even though I stayed for only one day I got to meet with great people at breakfast and the staff was very helpful into getting me a cab when my Uber driver failed at me, I'll definitely come back!

    It is very centrally located! Right in front of bus stops, close to the Plaza de Armas, with cafes, restaurants, and banks nearby. They’re very good with security (you need a bracelet to get in at night, you have a key card to get into your room). The staff are friendly. You’re walking distance to other tourist attractions too. Definitely recommend!

    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.

    Half the beds on one side of my 8 bed mixed dorm have two outlets, the other half have zero! Just so happpens that there were only 4 of us and we all got stuck on the non-outlet side, with no option to change beds. Pillow was moist when I got to the room. Reception is helpful but they keep the temps higher than usual in the lobby and rooms. Couldn't connect to WiFi in my room. Not anywhere near the quality of the Che Lagarto in Iguazu Falls, but on the plus side it was pretty cheap.

    Definitely getting what you pay for! Great price for a hostel in Santiago's center ($10), but it comes with old beds, not super clean facilities, and not a great atmosphere. Was totally fine for a night or two and the staff was very nice, but know it's not anything above and beyond!

    Best part of this hostel is that it's close to sights and metro. Decent size kitchen but closed at certain times. Get some fans!!! It was nearly 40 degrees celcius (100F) in Santiago, and they don't even have fans in the room! Wifi worked from the main floor. There were lots of people but not much spirit. I found it a practical but not enjoyable hostel.

    The hostel is just ok for the price you pay. It’s clean and felt safe. The staff were very helpful especially when I had a problem with my metro card. The problem is there is no atmosphere. There is a large common area but no one seemed to spend time there in the 4 days I was there. Perhaps if they added some activities or socials it would help. The kitchen is only open from 8am-10pm and isn’t well stocked. They don’t provide soap or hand towels in the washrooms.
