The best case scenario is that you gonna meet other fine travelers. Desk staff dunno how to get you around with tips or any real info bout the hostel. Sketchy rooms, noisy and not clean. They charge right away and very eager to make you pay. Yo get inside thru their coffee shop. Beware of the lady who runs that...

The staff were all very nice & pretty helpful. The restaurant was great. The room itself (The Bunker) was cute & had a really cool lion artwork on the wall - but very, very noisy, as it sits under the restaurant. Overall - if we were in a different room, it would be pretty good value for the price.

I had a wonderful time staying at this hostel, and would be hard pressed to find other places that were as nice as this one but were also only $12 USD a night (8 bed room - you can pay more for a private room). I got free coffee and a muffin every morning from their little cafe, and they...

The beds were comfortable enough, and it was calm during the night up on the 3rd floor where we stayed.

We stayed in a 9 dorm hostel which consisted of 3 sets of bunk beds which were 3 beds high. The beds are hand made and some are crooked and the gap in between the next bed way too close. The third bunk is veerry high and dangrous as there is nothing to stop you falling out. The common area...

We had a problem with our car and they were super kind to us and helpful, we couldn't stay but we definitely recommend the place if you are staying in Santiago. If you are driving to Santiago you should always have pesos chilenos, park it in a private parking and leave it there until you go elsewhere.

A friend and I came without a reservation after a long travel to the hostel and were warmly welcomed. The prices are okay and the accommodation too. But the best thing about the hostel are the people working there. Edgar and Diego tried to help in every way they could when we needed to find an room for our studies....
