23 July 2007 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Good location at heart of Barrio Bellavista and offers some good activities, such as wine tasting. But be warned, it IS very cold there in winter since the rooms do not have heating. This seems to be common amongst hostels in Santiago though, so may not be colder than anywhere else.
