Liked: Everything was pretty cool, i got a lot of help from the people at the desk and about the facilities they have just what you need. The hostel is really close to the subway and it's easy to get here. Like i said before, people at the desk is really nice and gave me all the info i needed, we had gatherings at night with other guys and shared experiences and some drinks.

Disliked: Nothing, everything cool.

Liked: - Excellent beds, comfiest and largest we´ve had all trip - Definitely the cleanest hostel we´ve stayed in in South America. - Staff very friendly and helpful. Philippe even let us play pro evo on his xbox. - Big, new TVs with satellite, were able to watch Champions League with no problem - Location- near to bus station and not too far a walk from central Santiago.

Disliked: As a piece of constructive criticism the water in the showers could have been a lot warmer, which was a shame as the pressure was very good. But that wouldn´t stop me from staying there again. I would very much recommend this hostel to other travellers.

Liked: Decent hostel. Nice kitchen. Low stress book exchange. Decent breakfast. Pretty comfortable beds. All in all decent.

Disliked: It's not the best hostel you'll ever stay at. A little bit of a walk to wherever you need to go. BUT, it's not the worst either. If you need a place to crash for a night or two, there's absolutely nothing wrong with it. Warning: There's only one computer available. Thanks to the two girls who decided to upload their entire photo album of their trip online for almost two hours while people waited. Muchas gracias!!!

Liked: Since its newly built, it is in very good condition. The rooms are spacious and clean, the bathrooms are also very clean (ours had to showers with one curtain... kind of strange) Breakfast is served early, which is great if you have an early flight or day trip planned. There is a great tv lounge.

Disliked: It can be a bit drafty if you are staying on the main floor. Not enough hot water if more than two people have a shower close to the same time.

Liked: Me gustó mucho en general, el edificio, la plantilla que allá trabaja, el ambiente, buena gente, y encima bien localizado. Lo encontré por casualidad y ahora lo recomendaria mucho mucho.

Disliked: Puede que algun dia la gente haga ruido y al ser todo bien ventilado y con ventanas se oye un poco, el resto bueno.

Liked: From beginning to end, the best place to stay in Santiago. It's very inexpensive and the service is amazing. Phillip, Josemaria, and Francisca are the greatest! They're always hanging around the hostel and good for a drink if not working...or even if they are, but go the extra yard to take care of small stuff like extra blankets or big stuff like buying or searching for hard to find tickets or information. Josemaria even came with me when I went to search for an apartment and helped me with getting a cellphone.

Disliked: Nothing to dislike.

Liked: Landay Barcelo is unquestionably one of the best places - not just among hostels - where I have stayed. The building is a former private residence, located in a quiet location with very good access to a market, the subway, as well as being close to the center of Santiago - a 10 minute walk. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful and dedicated to assiting guests. When people refer to a hostel as having a homely feel, they are describing the feeling that Landay Barcelo provides to their guests. The beds are very comfotable and there are plenty of bathrooms - in addition to the private bathrooms in each room.

Disliked: The free breakfast was adequate but not exceptional.

Liked: Good bedrooms with comfortable beds, clean linens, and nice modern bedrooms. The staff was more than amazing when it came to helping you figuring out anything you needed. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.

Disliked: If I had to be really nitpicky I would say the location was central but could have been more central
