“Great location, good hostel”
Reviewed 2 September 2012

This is a standard hostel - exactly what you would expect.
I stayed in a single room - room was basic, walls quite thin, but luckily the hostel was not too noisy while I was there.

The communal bathrooms were relatively clean, and I did get hot water for the shower.

One of the best parts of the this hostel is the location - located just two blocks from a metro stop, it is also quite central to all the sites.
It is also right across the street from the park and hill Santa Lucia, a nice bonus.

Staff were friendly and helpful.

There is a computer/internet at the front desk that you can use to check your email.

Breakfast was very basic - toast, jam, butter, tea or coffee.

It's just opposite to Santa Lucia, 10-15 mins walk to the main plaza and city ctr, close to the banks, supermarket, metro station.

The staff are nice and helpful. Breakfast was prepared even we were leaving before 5am for the flight.

The hostal indeed looks not as new as the pictures shown, but still comfort. we stayed in the ensuite double room, big and clean with TV and stable wifi. there are two kitchens, the only concern maybe climbing up the stairs for 4-5th floor.. of course it's not a problem for backpackers...

The good things are: the location, the place is clean, the room offers everything you need ( comfy bed, tv, curtains, small heater) and the staff is amazing particulary the manager!

The bas things... Nothing really as the manager always tried to do her best to help you

For one of the cheapest place in the city it s a good surprise

Stayed here with a group of 15 on a trip Chile in the summer of 2011. the staff were very helpful, the breakfast was simple but very good, and the location is excellent- right across the street from Santa Lucia & about 2 blocks from a grocery store. The bathroom was a little dirty- it was hard to shower with a cold floor (bring your own bathmat or shower shoes) and water that changed from hot to cold constantly. It was also a little loud on a few of the nights as other guests stayed up late and you could easily hear them as you were trying to sleep.
