Liked: It was a well located hostel, easy to walk to attractions and close to bars and restaurants. The rooms are spacious, with big lockers and comfortable beds.

Disliked: Can be noisy as rooms face onto street so probably bring some earplugs.

Liked: This hostel is very nice, clean and located in a good area of Santiago with lots of things to do. The staff is very helpful and available to give you all the information and questions you need. They have a service which is very typical in hotels (like breakfast, housekepper and toilet in the rooms) and the price is awesome! The balcony in the top of the building is a good place to stay and has an amazing view of the city. I strongly recommend Rado Hostel for anyone who is travelling to Santiago!

Disliked: I liked pretty much everything, so there is nothing I disliked in this hostel.

Liked: Rado is a new and spotlessly clean hostel. Your beds are made up every day for you and the whole hostel is always clean. It's near a Metro station so easy to get around if you choose to travel that way. It's also a five minute walk from many stunning sights.

Disliked: This is one of the quietest hostels I have stayed in and it is not a good hostel if you want to meet new people and other travellers as its mostly used by other South Amercians on vacation to Chile. I specifically stayed at Rado because they offered airport pick up which I arranged and reconfirmed nearer my arrival. However no car showed up and I wa ps given no explanation as to why from Rado. I had to get my own transport which cost me $70 US and not the $40 US that Rado promised. They did not even apologise.

Liked: Very good location, helpful staff, large rooms and lockers where you can fit a large size luggage in it. The breakfast is great with fuits, yoghurt, juice, jam, toast, tea, coffee, milk and cheese. If you need a transfer to the airport, the guy at the reception can book it for you.

Disliked: There are no lifts in the hostel. So, it can make things a bit harder if you need to go 2 levels upstairs with a big and heavy luggage.

Liked: very nice and clean rooms, great style, nice terrace, wifi worked well, but just in common areas, good mattress, everyting is new, absolut top-location if you wanna go out (Barrio Bellavista)

Disliked: very hot in the room (it was 35 degrees at this time) - fan was not enought, rooms on pio nono are very noisy (we had to leave open the windows), the personal on breakfast was quite rude, and you get nothing more like a juice for example.
