Liked: Friendly staff Free WiFi

Disliked: The "included breakfast" was a joke. If you are early enough (no refill) you get some kind of bread with jelly.. It does not match the photos at all. Reception desk a bit. Rooms no, pool room not existent,... NOT in walking distance of more than one attraction. Using laundry machine 5000Pesos, seriously? Hot water subject to chance. Loud and expensive area

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: Location. Bella Vista is a great area, filled with cafe's and restaurants.

Disliked: Hostel wasn't very clean. Showers filled with mould. Breakfast is the worst we've had in 2 month of travelling in South America.

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.
