Liked: Luciana and Andres were polite and helpful and spoke english well. The cleaning staff were lovely and always greeted you with a smile. The location was good, close to the main bars and relatively close to the train station.Rooms were clean.

Disliked: It was difficult to get the attention of the staff, they blended in and you never knew which one was actually on duty. One girl in particular just sat in front of the tv most of the time and became quite aggitated if you interrupted her programs.The desk staff didn't present a good, encouraging atmosphere, and made no effort to include the guests or organise events - which was a shame since the bars and cafes were just around the corner. There was hardly any information on things to do in Santiago - if you did find something, you pretty much had to organise everything yourself.

Liked: I liked that there was the option to have a shared dorm with a private bathroom. The location is perfect, in Bellavista, close to lots of nice bars and to the center.

Disliked: There were few different things offered for breakfast, but it was still ok and enough.

Liked: Some of the staff were friendly and nice. It looked like they had lots of activities for their guests (pub crawls, trips, tours, etc.) Free towels and breakfast was also a plus.

Disliked: For a hostel which has won rewards, the standard wasn´t great at all. Maybe we're used to the hostels in Europe, but it didn't feel very clean (specially some of the bathrooms). We also booked a female dorm with private bathroom but the last night there were to men styaing in the room ( we didn't really mind, but just out of principle - it was supposed to be a female dorm) and there wasn't any private bathroom to be seen near the room at least.
