The reception staff was very lovely though some of them didnt speak English very well. Good location and really nice building! There were not enough showers on the first floor, so sometimes we should use showers on the second floor. But it was not a big problem at all because the hostel has real home atmosphere.

I arrived at the hostel to be greeted in an unfriendly manner and I was made to feel I was annoying the guy on reception. The hostel room was also far to hot and when I asked for a key 3 times for the window I was presented with a key at 12 in the evening which didn't work. The...

Very good location, near to all the services. Breakfast was good and rooms clean. The best part about this was defenitely the ppl. Some were volunteering there, some (travellers) having a longer stay. Everyone was really friendly and you could always find someone to hang with from the common areas. Really loved this place !

I normally stay in hotels but money was running out so this hostel was perfect. Clean and efficiently run, they also can arrange almost anything for your stay. The staff went out of their way to help including the manager, Ari, who took us to the top of a building nearby to help us orientate to the Santiago geography. He...
