Best way to end our trip!
This was our last 'stop' for our SA backpacking adventure, and was the best hostel we stayed in. At first look you might get put off by the graffiti (which is everywhere in Santiago), but this place is great inside. Booked the private twin room (for an amazing price), and arrived at a ridiculous time (6am). The lovely receptionist (whose name I sadly didn't get) checked us in quickly and let us have breakfast too! Our room was super clean (which was a welcome surprise after the other hostels we stayed at), spacious, had a powerful fan, beautifully decorated AND had a en-suite. We felt like we hit the jackpot! Breakfast was plentiful (the chocolate cereal is recommended), only thing I would recommend is to provide hot water and tea bags for us tea drinkers. Please give this place a chance- yes we could hear some protests from our window BUT still felt safe here. This hostel was also a short walk from the city centre/local markets. If we ever return to Santiago, we will definitely come back to this hostel. Thank you so much for allowing us to end our trip on a high (especially during the tricky times with travel bans). Also another massive thank you to the lady who checked us in- you are AMAZING and an asset to the hostel!

Decent location. Avoid if staying on Friday night.
Hotel was nice but we were there on Friday night so there were riots/protests outside until about 2:30 a.m. We stayed in a private room with private bathroom which was nice. Towels were provided. Breakfast was decent. The staff was very nice. They have games available and beverages to purchase along with nice clean shared common spaces.

Private room with ensuite. Do not stay!!!
Our room was not clean!!!! Don't stay here. Its been the worst place we have stayed in the whole of South America and we are not fussy travellers. We also had a private bathroom which was also dirty, so dirty in fact I did not even want to use it. We went for this hostel as it had high reviews but it definitely wasn't at a high standard. The breakfast that was included was also rubbish.
