Liked: Great host, great location (safe and geen), great atmosphere. And the beds..... Amazing! Like sleeping on a Auping mattress with the best duvet since... home.. Slept until 10, whoops. But that did not matter because there is breakfast till everybody had some.

Disliked: The girl that took care of the breakfast did not put any extra on the buffet, when every thing was finished. Or she was not there or she did not notice. A little point to change would be nice.

Liked: Everything!!! it's an amazing place, does the job of a hostel perfectly and gives you so much more - it feels like a home for travellers rather than a hostel.

Liked: This is a great hostel. I liked it so much that I stayed here twice - once at the beginning of my trip and once at the end! It's easy to meet other travellers here and the staff are cool. Nice and clean, enough space in the rooms, and with a good atmosphere. There are books which you can read and exchange, and a free computer with internet. Lockers and towel are added bonuses, which I didn't find in other hostels in Chile.

Disliked: Laura left no negative feedback.

Liked: Loved this place. Staff were really helpful and not trying to push anything saleswise. Fantastic pool - clean and actually a reasonably size, not like some of the 'pools' other hostels sometimes claim to have. Good kitchen facilities with sharp knives! Generally a relaxed place and not too big so easy to meet people.

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: Small and very friendly hostel in a safe (but still central) area of Santiago, 3 blocks from the metro. The owner is INCREDIBLY helpful and nothing is too much trouble. The pool area is lovely and the whole hostel is super clean. One of the best hostels i've stayed in.
