Liked: This was my first stop in South America, and the staff were great in helping me get oriented in Santiago, and suggesting things to do while here. The free breakfast is great, and the free dinner may not be amazing, but it's free and a great time to socialize with other people staying here. Great location to walk to downtown, Bellavista, and the metro.

Disliked: A little on the quiet side, so not a huge party atmosphere if that's what you're looking for. A bunch of us did buy wine and had a great time staying up and drinking here, so it's still a lot of fun.

Liked: The location is good and the staff friendly. The room, a female dorm was clean enough.

Disliked: ¿Este es un hostel? That's what one of the other passengers in the minibus said when we pulled up to the hostel. the bathroom not so clean. The pipes had a smell of raw sewage. The frames on the bunk bed felt a little flimsy. The building needs a good paint job, especially when you compare it to the other buildings next to it; It seems like the building is in disrepair, but they are in the middle of doing some construction, to be fair. The breakfast is ok, my complaint being that they only serve you portion of everything, which didn't work for me because I didn't want the cereal but after an hour run, two slices of bed was not going to cut It

Liked: Free wine and pasta on thursday was good, but the food on the other days was lousy. There is one nice and friendly guy working there, but all others are very strange people.

Disliked: Worst hostel I've ever been. Full of bed bugs!!!The place is not only ugly but has a very bad atmosphere. I stayed for three days and they never cleaned the bathroom, which was filthy. You can't sleep when there is someone at the hall 'cos you will even listen to the person breathing.

Liked: All of the staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful. The location is excellent, just next to the Salvador subway station and 5 minutes walk to the busy nightlife in Bellavista. The meals provided are basic but man are they welcome when you've had a busy day and don't want to cook for yourself. Also there is a social aspect to the evening meal being provided and that is sitting down to eat with the other travelers makes it easy to meet people.

Disliked: Could really have done with a couple more lockers in the 9 bed dorm. Only 7 lockers between 9! But having said that the place is very secure with residents having to walk past the desk to get to the accommodation.
