04 November 2007 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The staff were very helpful and the atmosphere was great - from both the staff the fellow travellers. This hostel is convenient to everything - shops, restaurants, bars and a 10-20 minute walk to key tourist attractions. 24 hr access to the internet is also a bonus so we could easily check further bookings and communicate with family and friends back home. Myself and two mates stayed here and we will be coming back here when we get back to Santiago in a weeks time. Thanks for a great stay :-)
