Liked: The guy who runs the place is very helpful. Lockers are provided in the communal area for free. Dorm rooms are big and the beds are excellent. The communal areas are nicely laid out to encourage mixing with the other travellers and the BBQ on Friday is highly recommended! Excellent all-round.

Disliked: Nothing major! It is a bit of a walk to the city centre but its safe enough, and there is a metro station 5 minutes away if you can't be bothered. If the manager happens to read this and is looking to make minor improvements, having the cleaning lady clean the toilets every day is great, but doing it in the hour before check-out isn't the best time!

Liked: Nice little place with a good vibe. The staff are very friendly and it has good places to relax outside and by the pool. Friday nights are fun-- good food and wine.

Disliked: Not much.. a pillow case would have been nice and it can get pretty hot in the night in the room but it`s hot at the moment so can`t really be helped. Overall lovely

Liked: Fantastic place to meet people! Everyone is really friendly. BBQ and wine nights are fun. And Ivan is a great host! He took a few of us to a local salsa club around the corner. Definitely a quiet, laid-back atmosphere.

Disliked: Drains were extremely slow in both sink and shower (we had the private double)

Liked: This property was like a haven in hot Santiago with a leafy area and pool out the back. The staff go out of their way to help you with whatever you need. When you arrive they provide you with a map of the local area with all the points of interest you need. There are free bikes to borrow for the day too. Rooms are spacious and clean, the bathrooms likewise. Great kitchen and although we missed it we hear the Friday night bbq is a cracker!! The owner brings out some free wine some nights too!! Fluffy towels ... yes please!
