We stayed here last year and loved it so naturally we stayed again this year. It’s a very good location with parks and museums nearby - the best parts and the worst parts are on the doorstep. Last year we seemed to wander around the more upmarket parts, this year we seemed to have discovered the unsavoury parts. It’s certainly...

The hostel is very closed to the centre and the "Mercado Central"! It has a very nice terrace on the top. Rooms are very little and there's no place at all for the luggage! Bathrooms are very dirty and busy. Sometimes, for Unknown reasons, are locked! Breakfast is very poor.. Please don't go in Kitchen, you may find secular dirt...

This hotel is clean and comfortable but management is very poor. We stayed four nights and had to pack up and move rooms four times. Each time the room became worse standard with the last room being another flight of stairs up. This hotel is not suitable for those who have some difficulty with stairs but staff have tried to...

Hi, We have always been grateful for those who write us and give suggestions. It is a good way to get information and improve our service quality daily.

This place is a pleasant hostel but charges like a hotel. There are 3 flights of narrow stairs to climb (tough with a backpack) and basic amenities so they should not be charging $57US for a room with no bathroom. No major complaints but I think there must be better deals to be found in Santiago.

We stayed here as we transited Santiago to and from Easter Island and then to leave for the Lakes area. CasAltura is centrally located and easy to get from everywhere in the city. There are good choices for food, museums and clubbing nearby. Our rooms were spartan, but confortable.The price was right. Depending on the location, it could be quite...

It is clear why Casaltura calls itself a boutique hostel. It oozes old world charm, provides all the usual hostel services & has a central, if somewhat gritty location. The public area were spacious & inviting with ornately decorated high ceilings & comfy furniture. We had double room with private bath & while it was small, it was sunny, cheerful,...

Booked in for two nights and had probably the worst and best experience of our holiday.

First and foremost, casAltura is perfectly situated in a very central part of town, within walking distance to all the major sites in the city and just a few blocks away from a metro station if you're travelling outside of the downtown core.

Location of this hostel is the best thing, 2 blocks from the Central Mkt and you can walk practically to all the major sites from here. the down side is that the floor squeeks (at least the 3rd flood where all the single rooms are) and I could hear the person next door or in the hallway when they walk....
