Liked: Plaza das Armas Hostel has the BEST location if you want to know the main tourist spots of Santiago on foot. It's right next to a subway station and I think it's a safe place, but it's good to pay attention to pickpockets around the building. Besides that, there are plenty of stores nearby and also a supermarket. It's possible to make a great barbecue in the hostel overlooking The Plaza das Armas. But if you only want to enjoy Santiago night life, stay in another square, in Bellavista.I stayed with a group of 9...7 were in a shared room with good beds, space for the luggage, warm (important during winter), and the other 2 were in a double room, also an excellent room.The atmosphere was great... I met excited people at the hostel and a helpful staff. I really liked the hostel, but I had a huge problem with the showers.

Disliked: SHOWERS. Only the showers. But it's impossible to stay at Plaza das Armas if you like to take a bath everyday. The hostel is located at the seventh floor of a building, that's why the water doesn't have the strength to get in the showers, and even in sinks. The showers had one finger of water. IMPOSSIBLE TO USE.The staff let me and the other girls showering at a apartment in another floor, but if it was already occupied busy, it would be impossible to bathe.

Liked: Fairly good location, although half hour walk from Bellavista where the nicer clubs and restaurants were. Good view from balcony.

Disliked: Literally the worst hostel i have stayed in, in 5 months of Latin American hostels. Very hard to find- no signs on outside of building. It's in a covered tunnel of food stalls, we wouldnt have found it if we hadn't run into a staff member ouside by chance. Light in dorm was broken. Reported this on arrival Wednesday, hadn't been fixed when we left on Saturday. Dorm pitch black. Showers have see-through panels separating them, so you can see other guests showering. Only space to dress/undress for shower is completely communal, so no privacy. Water from shower head stank of sulphur. No water at all between 1am and 6am so couldn't wash hands in bathroom. Toilet paper kept running out and wasnt replaced unless we explicitly asked. Staff utterly disinterested and rude when asking questions/reporting necessary repairs.
