This place is in a student area about 10 minutes walk away from the centre. It is a safe neighbourhood that seems to have more atmosphere for me than the more well known tourist areas of the city. It is also great if you need to take a bus out of the city as it only 2 metro stops away from the Alameda station.
However it is not just convenience that made me enjoy this place. It is also the friendly atmosphere. It is run by Rodrigo and Nicole with the help of Juan and they go out of their way to help with tours and getting around the city but without any pressure and complete sincerity.
This was a first stop for me in South America and it was a great place to settle in and feel more comfortable.
The bedrooms are nice, big and not overcrowded. The beds are comfortable and they also have a terrace and balcony where they have BBQs.
I stayed in another hostel in Santiago in Providencia but decided to come back!
