Stay here ...its fab!!
I read a couple of negative reviews and nearly didn't stay here. But I did stay and the staff here are what makes this place AMAZING!!! I have never experienced such amazing service.They went out of their way to advise and help me on many occasions. They are also keen to see Guests are happy and socialising with each other. To this end they have various themed evenings....on tuesday evening it was free Sangria and music. Wed was a party atmosphere but I was too tired to stay and wednesday was free Pisco Sours and I missed unfortunately to go to airport. The dorm rooms were clean, comfortable beds ,spacious and with lockers and bench space....what more do you need! The bathroom was cleaned often in the day and shower fantastic! I cant say enough for this place, its simply great! Oh and a cheap bus from airport to Los Heroes then Metro to nearest station Baquedano. Only 50m from Merced88.

Good 6.0
PROS: Friendly staff, clean and spacious room. A little surprised the private bathroom is not attached to the room itself, but across the hallway. Good breakfast. CONS: The NOISE! Our room was on the 2nd floor in the back. We could not get any sleep at all due to the constant traffic noise/siren and people yelling/talking outside on the sidewalk (can hear them as if they are in the room itself). This happened all throughout the night. The hostel provides free ear plugs at the reception, we made the mistake of not picking up one of these for the 1 night that we stayed. Windows/balcony were old, so I guess that's why the noise just travels right through!

The staff were friendly and helpful. The bathrooms were exceptionally clean for a hostel! The beds were very comfortable and it’s a plus that there’s daily servicing and they make the beds. Any breakfast that offers eggs is alright with me. Centrally located near many restaurants and markets. I’d stay here again.

Basic, Convenient & Comfortable
Great for the price. Private room is clean & comfortable bed. Heating unit provided. Private bathroom, separated from dorm. Plenty of common areas with tea and snacks all day. Location is perfect. Very near metro and walking distance to main downtown attractions.

Very Likely the Best Hostel in the cenral Santiago
A refreshing experience due to the obvious care and concern of the friendly staff. You will feel like a welcome and appreciated guest here. The interior was new and freshly done. Location was excellent. Had an excellent stay there. The rooms were reasonably priced. I had a large private room, with a separate but private new bathroom. They also have a very large, homey, comfortable and welcoming lounge room with nice comfy chairs and couches and a large screen TV. This place is way above average for a hostel and it is clear that the owners care about your experience. One word of caution the rooms at the end are on a major street and will be quite noisy. Another good thing is that you can walk to the famous Bella Vista bar and restaurant nightlife area. There is also an underground parking garage nearby if you have a car.
