    I was 1 night and everything worked really well. The girl in the front desk was very helpful and nice, facilities are quite big and comfortable. The location is pretty good with some restaurants around the area.

    Perfect Location, lots of desks for working at which is a bit rare, clean spacious dorms with windows that completely black the room out which I love, good value for money!

    Very helpfull and friendly staff and nice rooms. The location is great for so many things. The kitchen could be a little cleaner, but it was not really bad, just a little improvement that could maybe be made. I highly recommend staying in Merced 88.

    Clean, low key vibe. Merced 88 is not a great place to go if you're looking to meet new people/party, but I was just staying for one night before a flight from Santiago and they have nice building and rooms.

    Pleasant, well-located hostel. Staff was very kind and helpful. Let me hang out and rest in the lounge area when my flight got in way before check-in on Monday morning. A little noisy though; seems to attract some noisy characters. A little chilly when not in the room.

    Nice hostel, but a little quiet to what I have been in before. staff were helpful and the area gave easy access to a few areas in the city. A little quiet for my liking and no bar in the hostel which doesn’t encourage socialising. Still would stay again

    !!!BED BUGS ALERT!!! Review in ENGLISH and PORTUGUESE I went to this place because of the photos, it looked safe, clean and with a good atmosphere. It's actually a building where they painted the walls with different colors, added some bunk beds in the bedrooms and called it a hostel. Zero atmosphere. On my second night there was a protest at the front (there are protests weekly) and a rock was thrown at my bedroom window broking the glass. The staff guy who helped me was super sweet, but he was the only one. They put me to sleep in another room but only for one night. The next night I went back to my room and I woke up with my arm totally swollen, full of BED BUGS bites. Many, many! It was my first time in this situation and what they did for me was change my bedding and still have the audacity to say they didn't find anything. But my arm was on fire, even now I'm in the emergency of a hospital in Medellin, Colombia. I didn't accept to sleep in that place anymore and they just said “Ok, ask for a refund on the website.” They didn't apologize, they didn't ask if I was okay, they didn't help me with ANYTHING even I am being a solo female traveler! I spent the night at the airport as my flight was at 6 am to Medellin. I lost more than 100 DOLLARS, with medication, doctor, transport and adequate clothes due to the condition of my arm. Don’t go to this place! ———- Eu fui pra esse lugar porque pelas fotos parecia seguro, limpo e um ambiente com uma boa atmosfera. Na verdade é um prédio onde pintaram as paredes de cores diferentes, colocaram beliches nos quartos e chamaram de hostel. Zero atmosfera ou incentivo do staff. Na minha segunda noite teve um protesto na frente (tem protestos semanalmente) e jogaram uma pedra na janela do meu quarto fazendo com que quebrasse o vidro. O rapaz do staff que me ajudou foi super querido, mas foi o único. Me colocaram pra dormir em outro quarto mas só por uma noite. Na noite seguinte voltei para o meu quarto e eu acordei com o braço totalmente inchado, cheio de picadas de PERCEVEJOS (BED BUGS). Muitas, muitas! Foi minha primeira vez nessa situação e o que eles fizeram por mim foi trocar minha roupa de cama e ainda ter a audácia de dizer que não encontraram nada. Mas o meu braço estava em chamas, inclusive agora eu estou na emergência de um hospital em Medellin na Colombia. Eu não aceitei dormir mais naquele local e simplesmente falaram “Ok, peça o reembolso no site.” Não me pediram desculpas, não perguntaram se eu estava bem, não me ajudaram com NADA mesmo eu sendo uma mulher viajando sozinha! Eu passei a noite no aeroporto pois meu voo era as 6h para Medellin. Um prejuízo de mais de 100 DÓLARES, com medicamentos, médico, transporte e roupas adequadas devido ao estado do meu braço. Não vá para esse lugar!
