Liked: Bruno the owner is awesome, he answers any of your questions and joins you for free beer every night! The hostel was clean, open with all the facilities available. Good internet, a cool little bar with an awesome Mexican bartender and laundry service. Little cafe next door for coffee, and right down the road from the metro. Had a great time here.

Liked: Leaving

Disliked: The hostel is totally infested with bedbugs. Every guest who was there during my say suffered from the bites. The staff are aware of the problem but are not concerned about fixing it thye simply apologize and carry on with thier buisness. The staff are unwelcoming and the hostel lacks atmosphere completely. There is a bar downstairs though it does not make you want to stay or drink there. One of the worst places I have ever been. Stay away unless you like bedbugs!

Liked: Terra Extremus has a great vibe for young travelers, the rooms are huge and the open spaces are wonderful. The bathrooms are pretty basic, but better than other hostels i´ve stay at. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Disliked: There´s no breakfast, but it´s close enough to kioscos so breakfast is easy enough.

Liked: Very cheap, nice location

Disliked: Not the best place for a full night's sleep..... Dorms very exposed to noise from both a fairly buzy street outside and the never ending party in the rest of the hostel. If you want a party in Santiago, this is a decent place. If you want quit from midnight, look elsewhere! Staff could have done more to discourage people from turning on the ligths in the dorm in the middle of the night!
