Liked: Everything about this property was better than expected. Staff knowledgeable about everything. Lovely breakfast. Location close to Metro & buses.

Disliked: The building being old with high ceilings & wooden floors meant it was a bit noisy, but this is the charm of the place & not a criticism. Any future visit to Santiago I woold stay here again.

Liked: Nicely refurbished hostel in an old house. Private rooms are spacious and very clean with good mattresses, feels more like a hotel. Breakfast was the best we had in South America, with boiled or scrambled eggs, bread, jam, dulce di leche, cheese, cereals, coffee, tea, juice, fruit etc. Nice courtyard with pool. Hostel is in a quiet location, a few minutes walk to the metro and the airport bus. Staff was super friendly and helpful.

Disliked: Rooms on the ground floor open towards the lobby so you could hear people coming and going. Also the doors have gaps so they don't keep enough sound and light out.

Disliked: Floors are old hard wood and a little creeky. People walking around woke me up at night a few times. But nothing earplugs can't fix.

Liked: There is a very nice backyard with a swimming pool, sun tarrace, tablefootball and tabletennis. The kitchen is large and there are enough tables, chairs and couches to relax.

Disliked: The laundy service (you have to do the laundry yourself, they show you the machine, you get washing powder, but they charge $6.5, while normally for this rate it is done for you).

Liked: It is a very nice place. The interior is bright and friendly. My single room with private bathroom (Nr. 3) was spacious and comfortable. Everything looks good and well maintained. They have a pool and a terrace outside. Breakfast is substantial.

Disliked: They could put something in the bathroom/shower to hold your shampoo and shower gel...

Liked: A very characterful hostel, massive rooms, high ceilings, big stylish furniture, big windows with origional shutters, wooden floors etc. The kitchen is big with everything you need, there's a massive outside courtyard with a pool and a bar. The place is so big, you can easily find a quiet, comfortable spot to chill if you want too. Wi-fi is fast and free and there are also four PC's free to use as well. Tours can be arranged with the friendly staff at the reception. It's about a ten minute walk to the centre and five mins to Los Heros for the metro or buses to the airport. Restaurants and bars nearby too. A great place to stay, highly recommended.

Disliked: It's was a shame that more people didn't use the bar, perhaps it was slightly expensive for backpackers and you are free to bring your own alcohol into the hostel so some people did that. Daniel, who serves behind the bar, was a superb host though so even when I was on my own, he was very good company!

Liked: Building had character, and the rooms were well designed.

Disliked: Extremely noisy hostel. Wood floors throughout so every time anyone moves, you hear it. Walls and doors are thin too, so again there's no protection from the noise. Our room (6) was sandwiched between the entrance hall and dining area - the staff were perfectly happy to allow other residents to have a loud and long conversation right outside our door at 4am.

Liked: A beautiful old mansion which has been converted into a hostel. The breakfast was nice. Large outdoor area.

Disliked: Unfortunatley the hostel was not very well managed. Toilets often had no paper (even after informing staff). When we arrived there was 6 beds in our dorm and they added 2 more beds while we were out during the day. The staff were not interested in their jobs.

Liked: really good breakfast, nice rooms, big comfy couches and nice courtyard. let us check in at 7.30am!

Disliked: they messed up my booking and cancelled one night so left us a bit stuck because there was not much accomodation available over lollapolloza. they were pretty nice about it though, let us have breakfast both days and think it was just an admin error. the floorboards are super squeaky too if you are trying to be quiet early morning!
