    The best place I’ve stayed in so far! The staff are beyond wonderful, always smiling and happy to help, the facilities are amazing with an incredible roof top, good kitchen & breakfast, everything is very clean and feels modern. Great atmosphere with free pisco sours on the roof top my first night, ended up staying for longer as loved it so much!

    I had the best time at Merced, staff were so nice and the location was perfect, close to almost every tourist point in Santiago and in a really safe zone. It’s not really a party-like hostel but it’s one of the nicest places I’ve ever stayed in. I totally recommend it!!

    Really lovely staff - they upgraded us to an nicer room for free for a night and when we moved rooms we had a really weird guy in our dorm who made us really uncomfortable. We told the staff and they moved us to a better room no questions asked and completely free of charge. The breakfast is good, they give you eggs which you can cook how you like. Very clean and the beds are so comfy. Fully recommend this hostel.

    This was a nice hostel but it wasn't very social...I wish they had more activities for the people staying here. That being said it was extremely clean and the beds were very comfortable.

    Some of the bathrooms had maintenance issues (some stalls were out of service, some shower heads were broken or lacked hot water, etc). Outside of the bathrooms, the dorms were excellent. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The common areas were also great. Overall, great hostel!

    Great hostel for a first stop - there’s not much atmosphere but if you need a decent sleep it’s perfect. Super close to everything - a central metro stop, MNBA, Bellavista, Cerro San Cristóbal and Lucia. The breakfast is decent too, and fruit all day is a big plus. Only complaint would be the 3rd floor was a bit dark (sensor lights that took a while to turn on) and the social aspect was lacking. Overall, though, had a great stay!
