Liked: The hostel has very helpful volunteer staff, and is right in the middle of Santiago nightlife.

Disliked: The place has a neglegted and run down feel about it. There were several broken things ( celling, WiFi,DVD player etc) that obviously hadn't been fixed in a while. The bathrooms were nicely done but just cleaned once a day ( bathrooms are shared with 8-10 people). Several people reported that property had been stolen from their rooms ( not the lockers though). The dorms might be an ok deal but the doubles are definitely overpriced, and in gerneral as noisy as the dorms. The breakfast also it might not be the worst in all of Chile is very sparse ( I had four slices of banana and half a see through slice of ham and cheese).

Liked: Nice hostel if you´re travelling alone, you can easily meet other travellers. Nice staff and good location! I would definately recommend this hostel!

Disliked: It was a bit cold outside the common room. But I guess that are almost all hostels in Santiago in winter time. They provide enough blankets though.
