Liked: Good location! Nice breakfast if you got in quick enough. Warm bed.

Disliked: A little dusty - my hay fever was really bad! You had to get in early for breakfast otherwise it was all gone with no more put out. Showers were ok but not great. The private room is at the front so there is a lot of street noise.

Liked: perfect location, close to everthing. Nice Staff and great Breakfast (best in the last weeks!)Rooms are good and have big lockers for everthing. Lots of areas to hang out and 3 computers for internet.

Disliked: Its very big, i think its normal in a city like santiago. It has a lot of areas to chill, but its not a nice and cosy small hostel. But if you dont look for this, its very good

Liked: The location was good. On a fairly quiet street but very close to bus and subway. The common areas are very nice. It seems to be where most of the investment goes.

Disliked: The auxillary staff was very nice, friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, the same enthusiastic rating could not be given to the reception/admin staff. They generally seemed indifferently kind and not overly helpful. They seemed to do the minimum that was required. Very unlike the best hostels. The showers were just barely adequate. They could stand to invest in new shower heads. The hot water in one of the bathrooms never got hot. I waited 12 minutes with only the hot water running before moving to another shower. There are very few bathrooms for the number of beds. The double room did not have enough surface space. They should put a dresser in there. Particularly if there are two people there, it can quickly become a mess leaving your stuff all over the floor.
