Decent character building. Pool was a nice addition. Great breakfast. I'd like to add that this hostel could have been cleaner (bins and toilets not emptied often during my stay). This let the over all experience down

Ideal location, lovely decor, especially in the (very expensive) private rooms. The rear patio and balconies are the real main attraction of the hostel, perfect on a sunny day with its swimming pool, decked area and lounge seating. It has two bars, however, I have stayed at this hostel on three separate occasions, and I have never seen them open!!

Dear Besty, Thanks a lot for your great evaluation and comments. Unfortunately we´ve had some trouble to find some suitable staff to attend the bar, however, we always have a frigobar at the front desk where you can purchase beers, wine, soft drinks and mineral water. Besides you always have the option to bring drinks from outside without a problem....

This hostel is very close to the center of Santiago. You have also enough opportunities in the neighborhood. Here you can find little restaurants and pubs were you can eat and drink very well. The staff of the hostel is very friendly and very helpfull. The rooms are quiet and clean. Wifi is very good and fast.

We stayed three nights in the hostel and had a very nice stay. Plaza Brazil, where many good restaurants can be found, is in walking distance. Might want to go early to eat breakfast, there was not a a lot to choose from when we went down to eat at 9 AM.

Dear Peter, Thanks a lot for your great evaluation and comments. You probably went for BKF in a bad time, for example after a big group of friends or similar, because our kitchen staff are always replacing the food from 8 to 10 am. Anyway we´ll keep an eye on it.

The hostel was very comfortable with a nice common area downstairs, and a pool and common area at the back. It was approx. a 10-minute walk from the centre of town in an interesting part of the city. The staff could also organize walking tours and give information about activities and places to go.

Very practically located, whereby one can reach the city centre either on foot or take the underground. Rooms are nice and spacious with high ceiling. Kitchen and the dining area was also spacious. Liked the fact that they asked for options for serving eggs for breakfast. Though, they no longer serve tea and coffee for free all day long.
