26 May 2010 Marina would recommend this property

Liked: This hostel had the best of everything. It's a great place to relax on the patio overlooking Santiago's Plaza de Armas or to meet fellow travelers in one of the hostel's weekly barbecues. However, the best thing about this place is definitely the staff! Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful.

DIMITRA CHATZIIOANNIDOU

03 April 2010 DIMITRA would recommend this property

Liked: it was the best hostel i have stayed until now and the first one that i felt so much that i was in my home!!is a huge apartment in the heart of the city center with terrances all around with a view to the Plaza de las Armas.the rooms are big and confortable, everything inside is new. we actually had a dinner for some friends of ours and we have the whole kitchen and terrance by ourselves. also it is the first hostel that i stayed and had FREE barbeque in the terrance for the clients.is really clean and you have the chance to make new friends. but i think that what makes the diference is the amazing stuff that make you feel like being in a family... I DEFINITELY RECOMEND IT!pd: muchas gracias chicos por hacerme sentir como si viviera con una familia auque muy lejos de mi casa real! Hasta la proxima!!

Felipe Grabarz

24 January 2010

Liked: If you want to party, drink beers all night long with music, party in the hostel.. thats not the place. The staff is always saying to be quiet, there is no party atmosphere and you have to go out of the hostel if you want to party. There are some idiot rules also which makes you even more angry with the staff. But if you want a quiet stay thats maybe a good hostel to be, with a great view of plaza de armas.

29 October 2009 Amanda would recommend this property

Liked: Staff brilliant- very helpful, friendly. Felt very welcome.Our room was excellent-like an apartment/unit. Great position- couldn;t get more central to everything. at day or night the place to be to "people watch". You can kick back and just watch the street performers , artists,etc or go to the many markets(small and large). The subway/metro is only metres away and clean , fast, easy and cheap!Just loved Santiago,surrounds and the people.

Jose Mauel Gasco Fernandez

11 October 2009 Jose Mauel would recommend this property

Liked: We stayed 2 days in a private double room suite and it was really great! this double rooms are on the same floor, but appart of the rest of the hostel, very quiet. it´s like an appartment with living room, own kitchen and sunny terrace. rather clean, but the roommaid seems to come only when the guests leave the room, but for 2 days-stay it wasn´t a big deal. the only problem was the shower : sometimes cold or lukewarm ( it doesn´t work properly because the water pipe seems to be fossil and there is no enough water pressure). the location is very good: in the heart of the city , close to museums, shopping mall and metro. the only thing, that may be not so gut: the entrance of the building is middle of some sort of "snack bar passage" where you can meet some strange people.although we have enjoyed our stay here very much and could recomend this hostel!Greets,Manuel & Anna from GermanyP.S about the other shared rooms we cannot say a lot, only what we have seen. the main part of the hostel is one big room with high ceilling separated in many cabins, that can be a little bit noisy.
