Liked: A good point was the location, very central.

Disliked: The rooms were cramped & beds too squashed together. Not much room then for rucksacks etc. Also the bunk beds were really rickety. I have stayed in better hostels for the money, in Santiago, so wouldn't recommend this one.

suzan tugrul

14 February 2010 suzan would recommend this property

Liked: dorm room was spacious. I only stayed for the day but had to pay full rates, which wasn't a problem. I arrived early in the morning, and the staff member on duty was the least friendliest staff member at any hostel i have encountered, and i have stayed in 3 other hostels in Santiago on previous visits. I think because i woke him up, but it still made me feel uncomfortable. Everyone else was fine. It seems like a great hostel, social, and a good layout. I was just unfortunate to run into a grumpy guy. Great value for money, one of the cheapest in Santiago.. I would stay again if the grumpy guy wasn't there!!

Disliked: suzan left no negative feedback.

Sinead Renshaw

27 January 2010 Sinead would recommend this property

Liked: Located in a beautiful building, staff were very friendly (albeit with very little English, and I had no Spanish, but still went out of their way to help with everything). Rooms were clean, very comfortable, if a little squashed. Free beer was definitely a plus (in the bar area, which literally holds about 4 people!). Felt a little cliquey, but I'm sure that's only because it seemed as though every other guest was from a Spanish-speaking country. Having said that, everyone was friendly, and I'd definitely recommend staying here, especially for the price (paid 7 euro)

Disliked: Sinead left no negative feedback.

steven Wadeson

09 December 2009 steven would recommend this property

Liked: We had to ditch one hostel in Santiago due to the muppets running it being poor accountants, bounced over here and were nicely welcomed and kitted out. Any complaints are hugely minor (Hooks in the shower would be good and they're onto it I hear, like I said - minor, not gonna ruin your stay). Location is an easy walk from the hubbub, hot water is good with decent water pressure, beds on par with Wild Rover easily, maybe better, can't say. Squeaky floors will be fixed soon, but who isn't used to them anyway? People are quite helpful and fiends for heading out on the sauce with you if you show a hint of interest. Highly Recommend this hostel, will be back.
