    I really enjoyed my stay, and wish I could have stayed longer! I was only there for one night, but was immediately greeted by a friendly staff member who showed me to my room and gave me lots of tips about the area. The hostel itself has such a cool, modern vibe, and I wish I’d had time to enjoy the common areas. My room was comfortable and stylish as well. Another lovey staff member helped me call a cab in the morning, and it was easy to store my luggage after checkout. Highly recommended!

    We stayed here for one night before catching a flight. It was clean, the bed was comfortable and the communal areas were decorated very nicely. There was a good supermarket nearby and a great kitchen to cook in. It's close to the bus stop to catch the bus to the airport. However there was no atmosphere in this hostel. It felt like it was the end of the party and everyone was waiting for the taxi home. Also it was very hot in the bedroom which didn't have a fan or air conditioning.

    Beautiful hostel. Lovely common areas, rooms big, clean and comfy, kitchen was awesome. Good location, easy walking distance but away from noisy parts. It’s really hot in Santiago and the rooms had no fan or air con so the 8 bed dorm was very hot at night. Also tried to contact the hostel through email (twice) and through Facebook and I didn’t get a response.

    In general the hostel was nice and modern. Good security. Ok location. Super friendly staff. My only two complaints were 1) the lack of air conditioning or fans. It was super hot at night. All I could do was open a window but that led to a smoking area which meant my room smelled disgusting and people were out there talking and playing videos until very late at night. And 2) horrible WiFi. I expected a lot better from such a modern place.
