Travelling with 3 friends... sensationally large room with en suite bathroom, Hugh ceilings and comfy beds. Outdoor area is amazing- plenty of space to lazy about by the pool or on the couches. Pool table is a bonus. Brekkie is decent- scrambled eggs are yummy. Good location. Super noisy room (close to the front street), but warm and comfortable. Staff...

The rooms are very confortable and clean, I took a private room for me and my girlfriend and only had problems with the shower - no heat at certain moments. Is very close to a subway station and to a university, full of people around - very lively neighborhood. GREAT!

This is a large, popular and good-value hostel. It is within walking distance of the town centre (10 minutes) and the staff are friendly and helpful. The hostel is a bit quiet in the winter - we visited in early June - and at this time of year nobody really hangs around the outside area or the bar. The problem...

(H)well, we had quite the SWELL time! The staff was helpful and hospitable, the beds were huge and homely, and the outdoor space was heavenly! Only wish the pool was heated or we came in summer. But that was our (h)error. Kitchen well stocked minus pepper. Good, quiet location, cool wallpaper, very high ceilings.

First, you need to remember this is a hostel. It has a variety of rooms, some with private baths, some with shared facilities. There are plenty of other amenities....laundry, kitchen, pool, walking tours. The staff are friendly and (by Chilean standards ;-)) well-organized. The location is within walking distance of the Brasil district with lots of restaurants and bars, as...

The building was very well maintained, very clean, and well decorated. The location was easy to get to, and near the subway. The staff were all very helpful, spoke English very well. The only thing about the location was that it felt like it was away from the centre of things, but it could be because the first night was...

Staff helpful and readyto give full answers to questions. The breakfast was a pleasure to experience. We arrived very late, but a ring on the doorbell brought an instant and positive response to 2 very tired older travellers at the end of a 30-hour flight journey. HHH was also flexible because of that circumstance, and late checkout was no problem...

A block away from the metro and easy to get to from the airport and bus station. Great breakfast. Large rooms. Noisy if people come into Reception when you are trying to sleep. Wifi in lobby good, but patchy in the areas at the back. Lovely shady area with great couches. Friendly, helpful Reception staff who speak good English.

I had a great time staying here and I would not hesitate to come back again. I had a chance of cooking my own meal, meet a lot of nice people, and I don't have anything to complain except that some guest were untidy, but that's nothing you can do about it.
