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.

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.
