    Everything was very clean and the staff were friendly. Wifi was good and the location of the hostel fantastic. There are big lockers in the dorms and powerpoints beside every bunk. I think that there would be an issue when the forms are full with the number of showers but as I seemed to be there during a quite time it wasn’t a problem. Would recommend

    Great hostel, we loved our time here. Our 4 bed dorm was spacious with big lockers and the card lock system on the door was safe and secure. Staff were helpful and friendly. The breakfast was great with plenty of cereals, bread, fruit, juice and hot drinks. Toilets and showers were clean and always stocked with toilet roll, soap and paper towels. Location was also ideal, easy to walk to plenty of sights but also close to two subway stations. We'd highly recommend Merced 88!

    Merced 88 is an amazing hostel. The location is prime, facilities are clean, secure, and engaging, breakfast is excellent, but what stands out the most is the staff. They are the friendliest, most helpful group of people you could ask for. I highly recommend Merced 88.

    Really helpful staff and volunteers, regular cleaning though the day. Good breakfast, eggs, bread, cereal and fruit. Comfy beds. One loud private night event on the terrace during my stay. Showers don’t drain well but very hot. Very close to Baquedano metro, short walk to bellavista area.

    I had a great stay at Merced 88 - the staff are really friendly and plan some awesome activities in the evenings. The roof deck is a great place to be with the weather warming up. Beds are super comfy, and the WiFi is great. Location is close to metro stations, and really easy to get to by bus/train from the airport. Will definitely stay again next time I’m in Santiago!

    I had a great time at Merced 88. The atmosphere was great. I would definitely come back. But maybe they have to modernize the windows, because it was so loud because of the street. The other thing I didn’t like was, that the bathroom was so dirty every time I went in.

    The place is pretty modern and fairly clean but the rooms were dark and gloomy. Security and location were great. My main complaint is that there was a horrible smell throughout and especially on the first floor - paint or gasoline or something very strong that was unpleasant to breathe.
