This place is a little far from the historic center, maybe around 20 minutes walking. But it's right next to Bellavista and Providencia so there's that. The hostel is massive. Lot's of kitchen space, lots of common rooms to hang out in. The rooms themselves are decently sized, good sized beds, large lockers and strong wifi throughout. The only problems...

We enjoyed our stay here. All staff were friendly. We had our own room it was clean and nicely appointed. The breakfast was good. The Hostel is conveniently located and within walking distance to many of the main attractions.

I stayed in this hostel as we were visiting my brother in Santiago for Christmas. It was clean, secure, (they have key cards to get in and out) and had good facilities which included a 24 hour reception. I had my own room which locked which was on the 5th floor. It was basic but clean (my room was cleaned...

I liked this hostel. It's in a good location, easily accessible to the bus station and airport, has a nice bar and one of the best breakfasts around! I appreciated vending machines and different foods each night. What could be improved is the staff - who didn't show me to my room, and one of them decided to get into...

The place was really nice. It is well located (just 5 minutes walk to neighborhood full of restaurants and bar). The staff was fantastic and they organized a lot of fun activities (especially during the evening) for guests.

I stayed here for 3 nights, there's loads and loads of info all over the reception area and the staff are very helpful too. The location is good, near to Bella Vista and about 5-10 min walk to the Funicular, where you can go up the hill for amazing views of the city and Andes mountains. The room was clean...

Hi, and thanks for your review! We're especially glad you appreciated the breakfast! We know it's important so work hard to put on a good one!

I don´t like writing a bad review but I also think that people needs to know that is not safe to stay here. First of all, reception doesn´t has any control or whatsoever over the people that comes into the hostel. Strangers can even go up to the rooms, that is why a thief got into my room and stole...

Hi, First I have to say we are really sorry about your case. Your case has highlighted that we need to go further to make sure that all the guests understand the rules, because ultimately security is the responsibility of everyone.
