The hostel was dirty and the room smelled bad. The localization is good, very close to the metro. It could be a good hostel if they just cleaned it better. The beds shake so not really good sleeping. The bathrooms were the worst part.

Arrived at hostel with no reservation and was able to get a room. Unfortunately the room was stuffy with the window providing the only air circulation.

Even after courtyard quieted, the constant use of outdoor buzzer continued into the morning....

Hi everyone. This hostel is a good hostel. Good location, specially for the ones that travel on their own, because it's a safe area and just two blocks from Baquedano tube station. Its very near Patio Bellavista, where you can find good food, good pubs, beautiful people, turists ok but local people also. It's an area famous for its Universities...

We have been in Santiago, Chile in Easter 2012 and we stayed in this Hostel. We were very well attended. People there are very nice and fun. It was an excellent choice. We had the pleasure to know Natasha, Queen of Techno Cumbia. :) Jokes aside, very nice people. We recommend! Flavia and Itérbio

The hostel is cheap and well located, but the bathrooms and showers are horrible. There is no ventilation in the rooms.

We only stayed one night in Santiago but this hostel was a great place to spend it. We needed a dentist and the staff knew exactly where to go for us to get the work required. They also were helpful when it came to going out to eat and were to go to party/have a beer or two. The place...

I was at Footsteps last july/2011. Look like they have some problems with the reservation system, I asked for a private room with bathroom, but need to wait in another one, a shared room, for 3 nights before get it, and others people there had similar problems. So I suggest confirm the reservation calling or sending an email. Another problem...
