Being my first time in hostal, I was not let down. The hostal is run by a kind and enthusiastic personnel. It is placed in the centre of Santiago and one can practically walk any point of interest. The hostal has a well-equipped kitchen and bathrooms, also they are always clean, as well as the other common areas. I do...

Noel thank you very much indeed. We can't think a place in Santiago tourist must visit that you can't reach walking from the hostel. We really are in the center of everything. Have a good trip.

Great little hostel right in the center between Lastaria and Bellas Artes. Nice staff, clean rooms, good breakfast! There is a small but well equipped kitchen and you can find many great cafes, restaurants and bars around! Would recommend anytime!

I booked a private room. When I got there the only staff was a Swiss guy who couldn't hit a word in Spanish and not more than a few in English. Communication was hard. The first thing was that the guy insisted me on charging me for the room 10 more dollars than the priced informed when I booked. I...

Hello, Sorry to hear you and I apologize for the inconvenience. Of course private rooms have key......the problem was a previous passenger same day went with the room and parking keys and took a while to solve it. The Swiss guy is no working with us anymore due to this and other similar issues same week. Thanks Thanks

Great location and super helpful Staff. Stayed in the 2 bed apt next door. Much too cold for our family in July. Had to sleep in hats and jackets:( Probably perfect in the summer! Good breakfast included at cafe next door. Staff very accommodating to coordinating tours, airport shuttle. Very close to Santa Lucia hill and lastarria and Bella vista.

Victoria, thank you very much for your words and your stay with us. Many places claim the best location, however, we really think we got it! When you are new in a city 3 blocks away from the right place can make a huge difference. We enjoy your stay and hope to see you soon.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Small hostel in Santiago Chile, in Bellas Artes Lastarria neighborhood. Choosing a hostel in Santiago is not an easy task, the city is huge and there are many neighborhoods that "seem" well located but really they are not. Your days and nights will be spent mainly in Bellas Artes Lastarria because main tourist attractions, cultural centers and all the fun is around here. Our quality commitment is to offer the hostel in Santiago with the best location, in a spotless place and with friendly service. And now we also have the most beautiful tourist apartments and... in the same building than the hostel! We are waiting for you! ... more   less
