Wayne Dunlap

17 January 2010 Wayne would recommend this property

Liked: The location is great and the staff could not be nicer and more helpful. They helped us plan our trip through Chile and where to eat, etc. in Santiago. The location is a couple of blocks from the famous Central Market and nice places to eat. Our double room was large and comfortable.

Disliked: Wayne left no negative feedback.

Milo Bird

15 January 2010 Milo would recommend this property

Liked: Beautiful old building with a roof terrace, nice rooms, modern facilities which are always sparklingly clean, and very friendly staff. Quite new so it's a little quiet, but getting gradually busier as the word spreads about this wonderful oasis in the middle of Santiago.

10 December 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Great hostel in convenient location, newly renovated so everything was super clean. Awesome roof top terrace, big comfy beds an lovely fluffy towels! Still very new so it was pretty quiet, but am sure it will liven up as word gets out about it. Bit of traffic noise in the room but I am a really light sleeper!! Nicholas at the reception was really helpful too.

Lucy Semmens

29 November 2009 Lucy would recommend this property

Liked: I have been travelling now for 9 months and have not stayed in a better hostel. It is set in a historical building with high ceilings, loads of space and the most comfy beds. The staff were amazingly friendly and spoke excellent English which was a big bonus. The hostel has sofas which you can sink into and a great roof terrace. Breakfast is included and also at a reasonable hour! Great luxury for a backpacker in a brilliant location and price. A must stay.

08 November 2009 james would recommend this property

Liked: It got perfect marks from us with one exception - that there aren't many people to meet because not many people know about it. It's so new. So luxurious it's almost like a hotel and Nick (the manager) is so helpful. Fluffy towels, massive beds, great linen, roof terrace - everything you could ask for, The best hostel we have stayed in thus far on our tour of South America,

05 November 2009 Morten would recommend this property

Liked: Amazing 100 years old building. 3 stories beautifully modernized and decorated. Seriously, this place shouldn´t be missed. Great views of the city from rooms and even better from the roof terrace.Just opened two months ago, so everything is new and clean. On the downside not too many people here because of the recent opening. Support this great place.
