“Sweet!”
Reviewed 21 August 2014 via mobile

All the staff were super helpful and friendly. The rooms are simple, clean and comfortable, and the location in Bella Artes is brilliant. I'm an older female who travels solo and I really enjoyed staying at La Casona Hostal. Would stay there again.

I loved this place before even entering the quite mansion in the heart of the city! The nearest metro station can´t be any closer and for those who prefer exploring a city by foot it´s just a walking distance from the main attractions. All the staff were extremely wellcoming and friendly, spoke good English and were always ready to help you with any problem. A nice typical hostel breakfast and regularly cleaned rooms and common areas. I won´t hesitate to choose La Casona for the next stay in Santiago

As a solo female traveler, it's hard to find hostels that you find safe and comfortable yet still affordable. You normally don't want to go for the cheapest place because it's not as safe. La Casona Hostel is in a really good neighborhood (in the heart of Bella Artes) and is walking distance from most of the main attractions, including the main plaza. The hostel itself was really clean and well kept. You got a medium sized locker with a smaller lock box inside the locker, which was great! The owners and people running the hostel were super friendly and helpful with all the questions I had. The only small issue I had was that the water was maybe lukewarm instead of hot, but I heard from others that if you have it more time it would become hot. Usually the second person using the shower would get the good hot water. Overall my stay there was great! I would recommend it to others!

Located off a quiet street in the Barrio Belles Artes, La Casona is a great place to stay if you want a convenient location for a good price. It has the charm of a grand old house and a helpful, friendly staff.

The rooms are clean but very sparse. I stayed in the Double room with private bath ($80 USD/night). No air conditioner, but the night was cool enough for us to sleep comfortably without one. One downside is that the bathroom does NOT have any amenities... you have to bring your own toiletries and towel (which you can also rent from them).

Breakfast is a typical hostel breakfast: cereal, yogurt, toast, some slices of cheese and cold cuts, coffee, tea. It's included in the room rate, but you're better off getting breakfast at a nearby cafe.

When traveling, I like to walk everywhere and take the metro- this was perfectly situated so we could easily walk to the surrounding neighborhoods and hop on the subway train when needed. Lots of great restaurants, cafes, bars, and gelato shops nearby.

Easily one of the best hostels in South America, let alone Santiago. Ended up staying there for more than a week while i explored Santiago and the surounding areas. The owners and staff are fantastuic and go out of their way to make you feel at home and assisting you. Brand new clean bedrooms and bathrooms, very good breakfast and good wifi too. Very close to the centre of town, and even closer to the subway station. Will definitely be back on future trips to Santiago!

Although a bit expensive, this hostel was in a great location and the staff was very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was pretty good; we'd recommend this place if you want to be walking distance from the town center
