Liked: Everything was fantastic! Comfy beds, huge dorm, clean bathrooms, great breakfast and the staff is awesome!! For the first time in months I felt like I had my own personal space. The big chest at the end of the bed was a huge plus and all the beds had their own personal lights and plugs.

Disliked: Maybe a tad bit expensive

Liked: - i love the atmosphere in the hostel in general and the layout / furniture of the dormitory (no bunk beds / kind of curtain between each two beds) - travelers kitchen (even with a stove)- proper breakfast, since they dont mind if you bring some of your own, e.g. if you dont want to eat jam on your toast every day (breakfast: 2 toasts with jam and butter, scrumbled eggs or cereals with joghurt, tea or coffee, juice and sometimes a small cookie)- located in the center- very kind and helpful staff

Liked: Very specious dorm. Always clean, and staff are helpful.

Disliked: I would recommend the hostel to have a local city map so what is available in the area could be shown in an easy to follow map..without a guide like that it is easy to wander and not know where the sites or places of commerce are located.

Liked: Good hostel, we stayed in the dorms, lots of space in there and first hostel in chile with big enough lockers to store a full pack. Great breakfast and helpful staff.

Disliked: No hostel events etc. so not good for solo travellers looking to get involved with other travellers on nights out - tours etc.
