We arrived late from the plane trip and were welcomed into the hostel. At first we were worried about the noise, being on such a major corner, but it was quiet enough to sleep well. Some of the area further along the street is a bit forbidding and we were warned not to stay out late there at night. The...

The staff are more than helpfull with everything you need to know in Spanish, Portuguese with some french and good English. The showers could be improved but the ba! hrooms were better than was expected. The location is right in the middle of Santiago close to the markets, this makes it easy to get your shooping done Free few minutes....

Only a two minute walk from Plaza de Armas, across the road from the Marcado Central (the markets) everything is within walking distance. While some of the facilities are a little run down, everything is functional and works and the beds are very comfortable. Every single staff member that we met was extremely helpful with advice and they even took...

We had a private room with a private bathroom. They do advertise private rooms as "hotel standard", but believe me - ours wasn't. The room was basic, but had a big bed and the sheets were clean, so it was OK. Sleep quality was quite poor because of the noise from the street. The hostel is at a big junction,...

I had the chance to discover casAlturA during my recent visit to Santiago. The hostal is well located, clean and comfortable. And the staff is very welcoming making a complete stranger feel at home in Santiago. Great stay!

We stayed here last year and loved it so naturally we stayed again this year. It’s a very good location with parks and museums nearby - the best parts and the worst parts are on the doorstep. Last year we seemed to wander around the more upmarket parts, this year we seemed to have discovered the unsavoury parts. It’s certainly...

The hostel is very closed to the centre and the "Mercado Central"! It has a very nice terrace on the top. Rooms are very little and there's no place at all for the luggage! Bathrooms are very dirty and busy. Sometimes, for Unknown reasons, are locked! Breakfast is very poor.. Please don't go in Kitchen, you may find secular dirt...

This hotel is clean and comfortable but management is very poor. We stayed four nights and had to pack up and move rooms four times.

Reviewed 30 July 2012

This place is a pleasant hostel but charges like a hotel. There are 3 flights of narrow stairs to climb (tough with a backpack) and basic amenities so they should not be charging $57US for a room with no bathroom. No major complaints but I think there must be better deals to be found in Santiago.

We have 2 buildings, located next to each other. The main building is large and divided in two levels, 15 rooms with wooden floors and beautiful details. In addition, it has a terrace on the top. The second building has 4 superior rooms, and with a different entrance which gives a more calmens to our passengers. Our location is privileged, San Antonio with Ismael Valdes Street, next to the forest park; very near to the historic neighborhood of Santiago.
