I spent about 10 days here while taking a Spanish course at the COINED school just across the street. I have stayed in hostels in many countries, and this is the best I've ever stayed in. Clean, comfortable, quiet at night, great atmosphere for reading, relaxing, etc., in the lobby, great breakfasts, very friendly and helpful staff, great location. I had checked out other hostels and hotels in the area, but many of the other hostels seemed to cater to a younger, louder, more partying crowd (I am 43), and I wanted a place where I could be social in the evening if I chose to but not be surrounded by partying 20 somethings all night. I enjoyed meeting a variety of people from many countries in the dining and reading areas. Finally, the location is great. You can walk to many sights and are just a few minutes from the Baquedano metro stop. I hope to return to Chile with my family and would definitely stay there again.
