Hostelworld says

This hostel has a great location. Right in the centre of Santiago's pumping streets (at night you'll meet plenty of samba dancers and drummers), anyone with a penchant for the Chilean party spirit won't be disappointed. H Rado is also happily close to the city's biggest tourist attractions, so you won't have to travel far to experience the best of the city. Patio Bellavista, Rio Mapocho and Parque Foresta are all within 200 meters and the Baquendo Metro Station (Sanitago's main metro station) is just a 5 minute walk.

Very Good

Awesome staff and location! Roof top is a must. The room could be more clean (the floor wasn’t clean). Very loud at night, music all night long. Nice trumpet solo out there! We are overall happy about our stay but there is still some work to do!! It will be amazing soon.

Nice hotel! Just starting up again after reopening, so still a few things in progress but seems like it will be really nice!! The location is perfect, and there’s a very friendly dog living here named Dorito. The staff are helpful, the lockers are large, the showers have great water pressure, and the rooftop is really nice. Not enough outlets in the room though and would be nice to have curtains for the beds.
