    Was a fantastic experience for my girlfriend and myself. It was our first point of call on our 4 month South America trip and we felt safe, well looked and loved every second in this hostel. A really brilliant place filled with brilliant people. Many thanks guys for helping us make great memory’s

    Really liked this hostel! The bed was so comfy I didn’t want to leave. The breakfast is great with boiled eggs or cook it yourself scrambled eggs! Social spaces are big, easy to meet people and socialise! Close to everything! Also, very close to the protest but I felt absolutely fine at the hostel, and they even offered to change rooms if I wasn’t comfortable sleeping in a room facing the street! Would definitely stay here again!

    Truly excellent property - super staff, good breakfast and good vibes. It’s not too far from the demonstrations so some days it’s best to be a bit careful on timing, but the hostel is super safe with a secure door and a 24/7 reception. The beds are great too! I slept like a baby :)

    Nice place. Close to the protests though so could be a lot of commotion on weekends. The staff was great and super helpful. Not a lot going on when I was there (not a party hostel) but met some great people while I was there.

    All of the staff were very welcoming and quick to take care of everyone when the riots got quite close outside. There were a couple of lovely outdoor seating areas and while we weren't the most social for the first couple of days, we were able to easily make friends on the last few nights. All in all, a good experience :)

    Despite the protests that were happening right outside, the Hostel still maintained a sense of security with a well locked front door and good storage of our bags. The front desk staff were very nice and helpful. The cleaning staff was thorough and also nice. The shared bathrooms are all single units with toilet and shower rather than stalls which was cool. Breakfast was included and had bread, cheese, fruit and eggs. The ambiance was more chill, talking and drinking.

    A good hostel with very friendly and helpful staff. The hostel is located close to the Museo de Bellas Artes, Cerro San Cristóbal, the food and bar areas of Bellavista and Lastarria. It is also close to Plaza Italia, where demonstrations take place, but staff of the hostel are brilliant at helping to plan around the demonstrations (usually happen on Friday evening from 1700). While it is close, the area surrounding the hostel is perfectly safe.

    Good location albeit close to protests which occur quite close, tear gas in the hostel but nothing to worry about if you stay out the way. Good breakfast and thoughtful/engaging staff albeit it remains quite loud throughout the night. Lots of hidden gems like TV lounge and additional showers we had to find for ourselves rather than being shown.

    Being at the central areal, it was occupied by alot of people and policemen. I got hit by tear gad multiple times. Although staff was really good, when I requested for refund of my money, they denied. They should have understand the security of people is more important than money.
