    I had a great stay here. I stayed in a private room which was just lovely. Very clean comfortable and spacious. Comfy bed, great bathroom and a little balcony. I really liked the location as I could walk to a few different areas with good restaurants and there’s a big park across the road. Staff was nice especially Greg who was super helpful to me! :)

    I stayed at this hostel cause my other hostel had no space in their dorms. This turned out to be great. My stay at Merced 88 was bettee. The people were really genuine & open to including others, I went partying with some of them & the staff & facilities were also really nice. I had no problems sleeping at night. I just heard traffic at 8am in the morning.

    Reasonably priced, clean, friendly, helpful staff and with a good, free breakfast (boiled eggs or fresh eggs you could cook yourself, jams, fresh bread, cereal, selection of tea, good brewed coffee as with free fruit available all day) - a great landing pad for a bit of a rest after a flight from the other side of the world. Pretty close to a metro station, supermarket, and within walking distance (20 mins) of a bouldering gym which was an added bonus.

    Rooms were spacious and super comfy !! Big windows made the room bright. Breakfast was simple but at times they ran out of eggs or milk etc. Showers were normally good, but had a few cold showers! Our room didn’t lock though which felt a bit unsafe and there were no events until Thursday so it really lacked that vibe.

    Really good central hostel which is easy to get everywhere in Santiago. The hostel was extremely clean and the included breakfast was good. Only downside is that there I no facilities available to do laundry.

    I stayed one night, but had almost no sleep since they was some bunch of drunken people screaming under our window. So, basically, no, I wouldn't stay again.

    Hot showers were nice, but the bathrooms often ran out of toilet paper and paper towels. Getting on the top bunk was extremely difficult because the ladder was on the side on the bed that was pushed all the way against the wall, but you couldn’t move the bed much because of the shelves on the wall. The mirror was also blocked by the bed. Definitely need to rearrange the setup better. They also played music extremely loudly and traffic outside was nonstop. Super noisy so bring earplugs/headphones
