I booked a private room. When I got there the only staff was a Swiss guy who couldn't hit a word in Spanish and not more than a few in English. Communication was hard. The first thing was that the guy insisted me on charging me for the room 10 more dollars than the priced informed when I booked. I... More

Hello, Sorry to hear you and I apologize for the inconvenience. Of course private rooms have key......the problem was a previous passenger same day went with the room and parking keys and took a while to solve it. The Swiss guy is no working with us anymore due to this and other similar issues same week. Thanks Thanks More

Great location and super helpful Staff. Stayed in the 2 bed apt next door. Much too cold for our family in July. Had to sleep in hats and jackets:( Probably perfect in the summer! Good breakfast included at cafe next door. Staff very accommodating to coordinating tours, airport shuttle. Very close to Santa Lucia hill and lastarria and Bella vista.

Victoria, thank you very much for your words and your stay with us. Many places claim the best location, however, we really think we got it! When you are new in a city 3 blocks away from the right place can make a huge difference. We enjoy your stay and hope to see you soon. More

It was really close to the Bellas Artes metro station and walking distance to lots of cafes and bars. It is on a main road though so might be a little noisy for some, it was fine for me. The breakfast was cereal / bread / jam / coffee combo but it did have the addition of cheese and salami... More

My ride to Argentina was delayed so I stayed in their all female dorm for a night. It was alright for a hostel and I didn't seem to have any trouble with anything while I was there.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Small hostel in Santiago Chile, in Bellas Artes Lastarria neighborhood. Choosing a hostel in Santiago is not an easy task, the city is huge and there are many neighborhoods that "seem" well located but really they are not. Your days and nights will be spent mainly in Bellas Artes Lastarria because main tourist attractions, cultural centers and all the fun is around here. Our quality commitment is to offer the hostel in Santiago with the best location, in a spotless place and with friendly service. And now we also have the most beautiful tourist apartments and... in the same building than the hostel! We are waiting for you! ... more   less
