It's a great place to stay if you're looking for bars and restaurants. It's in the heart of Bellavista, really close to patio bellavista and Neruda's house. The hostel offered one free barbecue during my week there and the staff is really nice! But they're having a big reform, and things were too messy. At the room I was, there...

Stayed for while here, including over NY and had a fun time. The new, back part of the hostel is amazing with big beds, strong wifi, TV with netflix and a new pool table. Completely different to the rest of the hostel. The staff organise free lunches, evening BBQs and sangria nights most of the week so meeting people is...

The staff is very friendly, and the rooms are comfortable. Lovely common areas, and very funny people staying there. Breakfast could be a little better, but on the other hand, somedays you can have lunch or dinner for free. Wi-fi is not so good.

Excellent hostel! It has a lot of facilities, clean, the staff is really helpful, the common areas are excellent and the place is huge! The vibe is chilled tho. The location is great, it is placed around the bar area. Good place to stay alone or with friends. I definitely will stay there in my next visit in Santiago.

This is a very nice hostel with a social vibe. Located in the middle of Bellavista its a great place to stay if you like to go out. Lots of good restaurants at Patio Bellavista, just a 5 min walk from the hostel. Dorms are not to small and there are enough shared bathrooms to never have to stand in...

The hostel is clean and has sufficient bathrooms. The wifi works great (not so in the reception, but in the back of the hostel). It is a relaxed place with lots of hang around areas and the staff is friendly. The breakfast is OK and sometimes there is free lunch. Location is also good inside the middle of Bellavista.
