Liked: This hostel was really great....so clean, plenty of hot showers, activities everynight if you wanted to hang out in the common room, free internet, very helpful English speaking staff....it was noisy the weekend nights...until 5am, but I had great roommates....we shared a 6 bed dorm with all fantastic women from Germany, Argentina and Austria. I would go back...breakfast was great too!!

Disliked: Only the one noisy night until 5:30 am....even with ear plugs it was hard to sleep as we were just above the party.

Liked: Fantastic location, great facilities and breakfast

Disliked: Having to move rooms during stay, seems like a unorganised system. Staff were average, rooms on the 2nd floor are noisy, payment system and I think its a bit overpriced.

Liked: the breakfast is very good, their dinners & free dinners are good, staff is very friendly

Disliked: their shown prices on hostelbookers do not include the tax!!! if you want to pay in chilean pesos they add the 19% VAT tax by using an astronomocal bad conversion rate from usd to clp - that is very dodgy! their wifi never worked on my computer and many other guests had problems, too. the toilet in the 4th floor did not flush, so there was very often nr2 inside. the breakfast was not from 7.30, cause they only started preparing from 7.30, which worked out it was ready at 7.50. too late if you want to gog skiing! staff could not solve the described problems.

Liked: Da ich jetzt schon etwas laenger unterwegs bin, muss ich sagen, dass warme Duschen nicht selbstverstaendlich sind. Dieses Hostel hat wirklich 24 Stunden warmes Wasser. Da Chile nicht ganz guenstig ist, war es gut, dass es moeglich war in einer sehr sauberen Kueche zu kochen. Fuer den Preis ist es ein super Hostel und die Lage ist auch optimal. Direkt an der Metrostation Bella Vista gelegen und ich denke im schoensten Teil von Santiago!

Disliked: Dadurch, dass es kein so kleines Hostel ist, fehlt ein wenig die Bindung zum Personal. Allerdings ist dieses immer hilfsbereit und kann bei Fragen weiterhelfen.

Liked: LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION!! Perfect location for sightseeing. Everything you need is within walking distance, the subway is literally across the street from the hostel, and there are restaurants and bars everywhere. The people that work there all spoke English so they were helpful if you had any questions regarding how to get somewhere, etc. Also, hostel takes credit cards and doesn't charge a fee.

Disliked: No air conditioning in the rooms, no elevator to get up the 3 flights of stairs, and they were out of breakfast by the time we got downstairs every single day we stayed there. So don't expect to eat unless you get there within the first hour. The rooms got pretty hot so we had to sleep with the windows open, but the restaurants right next door were so loud until about 4 in the morning that we didn't get very much sleep anyways. The area of the hostel was very touristy so be careful that you don't get ripped off when you go anywhere. We had the private bathroom - the shower had hot water but crappy water pressure and tub barely drained.

Liked: We stayed in one of the apartments for 2 nights & a double rm in the hostel for 1 night. Both were great. The hostel is in a nice area of the city and right next to a metro stop. There is a nice lounge and pool table area, a good kitchen and excellent breakfast. A small book exchange, but better than nothing. The apartment was modern, clean and a good size. The double rm was also a good size and had everything you'd need. The staff were friendly and helpful

Disliked: nothing really. the apartments are perhaps a little bit far from the hostel - only a 5 min walk, but it discourages you from going to use the hostel facilities, but then you don't really need them as the apartment has everything you need!

Liked: Spacious dorms with huge lockers and good quality beds. Excellent breakfast. Central location. Friendly and helpful staff, especially in the well equipped kitchen. Overall very good value. Don´t even have to clean the free breakfast dishes!

Disliked: Dropping money belt in shower as there are no hooks or benches to put stuff on within shower. Room let through a fair bit of noise especially on Karaoke night. Winery tours to Maipo valley are a bit pricey.
