Liked: A really, really nice hostel and an awesomehostel staff It's a smaller hostel, therefore it's easy to get in touch with everyone. The beds are pretty comfortable and the rooms are big. The hostel staff is very friendly and helps you directly if you have some problems. I really enjoyed my stay there!

Liked: The Dog Duke is awesome and is in no way fat or suffering from Diabetes. I am pretty much a veterinarian and have given him a full exam to confirm this. The beds are some of the most comfortable in South America with a great outdoor area to hang out in, tasty breakfast included and a great location in a safe and central neighbourhood very close to two metro lines. Great Social atmosphere and a place I keep coming back to. The owner even gave me new shoes he had lying around something that is hard for me to find in South America. And just to reiterate Duke the dog is downright awesome and in no way diabetic.

Disliked: Not much to say, in high season book ahead because it fills up.

Liked: nice atmosphere, big rooms and individual large bathrooms

Disliked: not very well advertised, no big sign out the front or anything, bit hard to find at night when arriving but apart from that an excellent hostel!

Thanks for the compliments!! Regarding the advertising, my lovely neighbors politely asked for the hostel not to have big flashy sign and we never really needed one. With the address it should be easy enough to find. Almost every taxi driver now has GPS in Chile :)
