Liked: Great bathrooms. Stayed in a single that was rather good. Nice building. Staff was very helpful and spoke English well.

Disliked: Aside from the normal breakfast complaints, I didn't really meet anyone in the common areas the one night I stayed. Everyone tended to keep to themselves. Not sure if that is normal or not.

Liked: good breakfast and helpful staff

Disliked: the 6 person dorm is right by the reception and common area which is disturbing if you're trying to sleep. You also hear the loud bell which is pretty annoying.

Liked: The hostel is located in a lovely old building (a bit like a castle). The location is good for Barrio Brasil, the rooms are nicely decorated and the twin I booked was a good size. There's also a TV room with a big plasma where you can relax.

Disliked: The staff just don't seem to be too in tune with travellers needs, they're not particularly enthusiastic or forthcoming with information and advice. They don't offer a laundry service and didn't service the room when they were scheduled to which was really disappointing. The shower goes hot and cold and on the top floor has really low water pressure ... and there's no hooks, or surfaces in the bathroom to put anything. Breakfast is average. I've stayed in three Hostels in Santiago and this was the most expensive, furtherst out, offering the least services with the least helpful staff.

Liked: It's spotlessly clean, and the staff are lovely. The building is an incredible old place through a tiny door into this stain glass windowed, dark wood staircases property. Istayed after a long flight and bizarre time difference from new Zealand. It's perfect, quiet and clean. very comfortable beds and lovely showers. Security is high which is great for a new person in south America. Lockers for luggage in the room, and locked gate entrance. if your looking for partying this is not the place, but for a chilled out relaxing place it's perfect. Good free breakfast and super fast, constant free wifi.

Disliked: A little hard for the shuttle to find, but we did in the end!

Liked: The hostel was extremely clean and quiet, and the beds were quite large.The staff was also very helpful. Also, it is within three blocks to the metro, so that's nice as well.

Disliked: The hostel was practically empty. I wish it had more people because I didn't really meet anyone there, and it got a little lonely. Also, the breakfasts were lacking, just some plain white sandwich bread, butter, and jam. Next time, I would stay in Bellavista instead of near the center because the Barrio Bellavista had a better feel.

Liked: it´s probably one of the best hostels i´ve ever stayed at. bedroom was so big and so clean, breakfast was great, people were nice and the price was very good.

Disliked: my bedroom was really noisy at night, since it was close to the common areas. loud music, laughing and talking really late at night. it wasn´t a big problem for me, cause i usually don´t mind sleeping in noisy places, but it coud be a problem for people who can´t sleep without silence.

Liked: The two female staff members were very helpful and friendley but the two men at the front dest seemed indifferent. It's a nice old building and is very clean.

Disliked: After we checked in we changed our reservation from three to four nights, but after 3 nights they kicked usout of the room and the man at the front desk didn't feel any responsibility to find us another room. The shower upstairs was either burning hot or cold. The kitchen is very small and hardley fits two people. The breakfast is very lame. This is not a boutique hostel, there is really nothing unique about it.

Liked: Roberto und Paulina sind sehr engagiert ihrer Arbeit nachgegangen. Roberto hat mir gratis etwas Spanisch beigebracht und Paulina hat sich sehr für meinen Wunsch eine bestimmte Tour zu machen eingesetzt. Andere angestellte waren weniger eifrig. Das Hostel war relativ sauber, gut in Stand gehalten, hat eine gute Anbindung an das Stadtzentrum. Das Frühstück war in Ordnung.

Disliked: Ich persönlich mochte die dauernde TV Beschallung nicht.
