    The staff were great! The amenities were unique offering food or drinks in the evening as an opportunity to socialize.

    Good morning coffee and great location. Bad response to the water pouring down from the ceiling, bad choice when the front office sold our room to another at midnight, gave them keys to our room, and we were awakened by someone trying to get in. Bad to tell us that the elevator worked when it didn't and we had to drag 100 pounds of luggage down 5 flights of stairs. We were there four days, plaid in advance, and every time we went to the front desk there was a new employee. No offer of compensation for the bad experience nor show of concern.

  • 6.0.Good

    The main part of the Hostel is on the 6th floor with the dining area and a great terraza directly overlooking Santiago’s Plaza de Armas. Simply gorgeous, and I don’t think there’s another building offering anything close! Because of the view, we would probably repeat, despite our room, which was pretty bad. As a couple, we had a private room and bathroom (actually was kind-of 2 floors with a small bed, kitchen and dining area below—would be good for families) which put us downstairs on the 2nd floor and on the side of the building NOT on the plaza. The building itself is older and gritty and questionable character—ALL KINDS of tenants—so we were down in that. The room was basic and clean but the cold (only a weak space heater) and the street noise came in easily: “Arepas, arepas, vendo arepas” one lady, with a really strong voice repeated maybe to midnight. From now on whenever I hear “arepas” I’m going to think of there. After a day getting used to Santiago, the 2nd night went better—I almost would have braved everything to go out alone and get some of those arepas. 🙂

    Great stay

    Great hostel with a fantastic view over Plaza De Armas! The best part for me was the staff! The guys were ready to help me with any request and always with a big smile on their faces. Lucia definitely sticks out! She was so nice to me and helped me out through my stay, she also made sure I woke up on time to get my taxi at 4 am! Such a great asset for this property! Give her a rise! :D muchas gracias!

    Aside from a couple of noisy roommates, I really enjoyed staying here. All the staff were friendly and knowledgeable and offered tips from where to go in Santiago to the best way to do a day trip to Valparaiso to the best way to get to northern Chile. This is a great place to stay!

    An excellent hostel in Downtown Santiago

    First the lift/elevator is fixed! woohoo! We booked the private double room and was upgraded to the Family Suite on the 3rd Floor, Room was very spacious and very clean and modern, There is a great view from the balcony on the room, The reception is on the 6th floor along with the lobby / common room. the girl from Columbia who was working on reception was extremely nice and helpful and there was free Pisco sours the night we arrived and we did the walking tour via the hostel too. Location wise its extremely central and is above the hot dog shops in the building marked 960, We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend anyone thinking about booking to go with it, The area is safe and its very very central, there is ladies of the night outside on the street but there is plenty security and police around so there is no issues .

    Tres bon accueil. Tres belle vue sur la place. Lieu tres surprenant. Le bâtiment Merite une sérieuse rénovation. L'auberge est correcte.
