Liked: Some of the staff were alright. The atmosphere was ok people made the place ok. The breakfast was good, and they had hot showers.

Disliked: The staff were mostly incompitant they didnt even know how to use the card machine! Our room wasnt perticularly clean. The window in the room opened out to the main corridor it was not properly secure it only had a piddly latch which wasnt even on properly. and the room was sweltering and the staff didnt even offer a fan!

Liked: This was a great hostel with a good social area and big rooms. The breakfast was really good too with freshly made scrambled eggs on offer. The very best thing about this hostel though was the staff who were all excellent and very helpful, particularly Chez. We left our Ipod at the hostel and Chez arranged to have it sent on to us in Santiago. Now that´s good service!
