Good location, great breakfast with the best quality bread, cheese, salami and more. Very good wifi, good hot showers in spacious bathroom. Very nice garden area with a pool! Good soft cuddly beds. Most importantly great staff and an amazing owner. Came back 3 times. Sanne

I stayed here for a week at the start of my travels in Chile, and returned again on my way out. It felt so good to come back--like a family reunion, even though most of the travelers were ones I hadn't met yet. This hostel is very small but incredibly friendly and social, and Ivan makes sure you feel at... More

Out of all the countries I traveled in South America this hostel was the best. Ivan was an awesome host, had bbq's by the pool, helped us with everything we needed, gave great recommendations. The hostel was clean, cozy and the rooms were bright and sunny. Great location in the Barrio Italia neighborhood of Providencia. Close to everything! I stayed... More

Lovely hostel with some of the better rooms in a large trip across South America. Reasonably priced with helpful staff. Splashed out a bit and stayed in the bungalow next to the pool. The pool maybe could do with a clean but the rest of the hostel was bright and clean. Breakfast is provided but very basic, which is fairly... More

We read fantastic reviews of this place and booked 3 nights in the bungalow which cost a bit extra. We were unfortunately disappointed. We were kept awake every night because the social area was right outside the room - people played very loud music and were pretty rowdy until late every night. The hostel made no effort to encourage people... More

Ivan is awesome and easy to talk to, he has bbqs occasionally and allows you to use the full kitchen or living room for movies and etc. this is like having your own place and it is a great setting for fun talks and meeting new people.

This hostel is an easy walk or metro to everything. The atmosphere is great, the staff (Ivan in particular) are super friendly and helpful. During my stay it felt like hanging out with friends more than staying in a hostel. Well worth the visit overall.

We stayed here for 3 nights after we'd visited the Central Valley for wine tasting. First impressions were excellent. The check in process was smooth. We were given a map, all info on the city was explained and if we needed anymore info it was clear we could ask as there's 24/7 reception. The beds are really comfy (I loved... More

This little oasis was our first stop in our travels in Chile, and Ivan sets the tone for how friendly, warm and welcoming EVERYBODY is. Staff takes their cues from Ivan; ask for anything in regards to your needs or travels. And the Big Table out back is welcoming with conversation, and shares, with all different cross culturing occurring. At... More

I wish I could have spent more time here. An easy 20 minute walk through a linear park to the centre or a five minute metro ride on the best line for most things travellers want to do. Good kitchen and amenities but what makes this hostel is the owner Ivan and his staff. Nothing is too much trouble and... More
