We usually stay at Hostals or B and B type places but found it hard to find a good one in Santiago so opted for cheap double rooms here. The room was clean, the bed was comfy, the staff were friendly but i wasn't comfortable. It has very much a hostel feel but lacking in the fun of many others. There was a mistake with my booking, the toilets ran out of toilet paper and you could hear every whisper from the rooms next door the walls are so thin. The floors all creak loudly and the road out the front is busy and our windows were dodgy and let all the noise in.
The location is great, just up the road from Bellavista and the hill. For value and location it's good, but i didn't like being here.
