    We stayed there for 3 nights, arrived late at night and had no problems checking in. Reception staff just as helpful at midnight as at 2pm. The hostel is very close to Plaza Italia so the protests were happening outside, nevertheless the hostel felt secure and as long as we were back at the hostel before the police tried to shut down the protests we had no issues. Room, bathrooms and common areas were very clean. Breakfast was good and there was always more food than you could eat.

    recommended to us by a fellow traveller we met earlier on our trip & so glad we stayed here. Best hostel we've had so far. The building is amazing & the staff were great. Re: the protests. Yes they are still going on & it is noticeable especially at wkds but we never felt less than 100% safe. From a selfish point of view it kind of improved our stay as the place was quite empty (we got an 8 bed dorm to ourselves 1 night). Cannot recommed this place highly enough, would definitely stay again.

    During the riots and protests, I felt very safe here. The room was great, and the kitchen facilities were great too. Easy to get around by foot! The rooftop terrace for us was a great way to see what was going on on the street without getting directly involved in any dangerous activity ( this was only I. The evening- completely fine to explore during the day). Great !! Would recommend.

    It was truly the worst hostel experience I’ve had in 10 years staying at them. The room: The picture shown had curtains, but it didn’t, so the sun beat in all day, and we only had a fan and ONE 20x20cm window that opened. It was miserably hot. Front desk: had no recommendations of tours or places to eat, and the guy was too busy texting to answer us. The plaque on the wall says breakfast 7-10:30, but then we were told by front desk “Chile doesn’t wake up ‘til 11, so maybe we’ll do breakfast”
