“Sweet as home”
Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

The hostel is very welcoming. I had a great time when I was there. It is located in the perfect place, close to the Bellavista street besides that, you can find taxis whenever you want and the host is really nice to people. You won't regret if you go there.

The owner of this place is a wonderful person, always ready to help and the hostel is located in a nice a lively area of Santiago. (A kind of quartier Latin in Paris for French people). There is a kitchen to cook which is welcome.

I arrived late in the evening, people (other customers and the owner) were preparing food, talking and hanging around. Immediately they made me part of the evening.
The atmosphere is very comfortable, the dorm, the kitchen and the bathroom all are very clean. Kitchen can be used by everyone, there's enough space in the fridge for everybody's food.
Located right next to the Pio Nono, the mainstreet to go out in Bellavista (Santiago's party barrio), near the Cerro San Cristóbal and only 5 minutes walk from the metro station Baquedano at the Plaza Italia, you really find everything you need.
Because of that and because of being very valuable I really would recommend this place to everyone!

We stayed at Marcel for two days and we had a lovely time. He lives close to the very life living part of city and helped us with everything. The place is very simple but fullfiled with great energy. If I' ll go to Santiago again I will definitely visit Marcel again!!!!

The location is perfect, one block from all the resturaunts and bars in bellavista. The owner Marcel is very friendly and helpful and likes to have fun.

The hostel is quite small and we (couple) had a private room which was good size, comfy bed, even had a TV!

Only downside was the one bathroom for the place, we were there on a busy weekend but had to wait hours to use the toilet/shower. Also the water was usually cold.

The double room was a bit expensive too but maybe thats just Santiago.

I stayed in the Chile Backpackers Hostel a few nights in August 2013 -- the location is spectacular (10 mins walking from a main metro stop) and is a very short walk from many bars, restaurants and clubs. Marcel, the owner, is a really cool guy, very energetic and kind, and he knows English and some Portuguese. The house is in a historic and trendy neighborhood and the house itself is beautiful. Highly recommended.
