Now is not the time to stay here. It is completely defaced, I got tear gassed from the protest out of my room, it is so loud as it’s right in the middle of the revolution... This place had no disregard for its guest as I kept being told it’s fine when other places I dined at always offered transportation. Very cute room but the floors were so dirty I had to wash my feet and then tip toe to bed so I didn’t have dirty feet in the bed (should’ve wore slippers). Just not a good stay besides the kind front desk people.

Great value for the money. The kind of place you stay when you are young & idealistic & broke. Not necessarily for traveling retired grandparents.

Stay here ...its fab!!
I read a couple of negative reviews and nearly didn't stay here. But I did stay and the staff here are what makes this place AMAZING!!! I have never experienced such amazing service.They went out of their way to advise and help me on many occasions. They are also keen to see Guests are happy and socialising with each other. To this end they have various themed evenings....on tuesday evening it was free Sangria and music. Wed was a party atmosphere but I was too tired to stay and wednesday was free Pisco Sours and I missed unfortunately to go to airport. The dorm rooms were clean, comfortable beds ,spacious and with lockers and bench space....what more do you need! The bathroom was cleaned often in the day and shower fantastic! I cant say enough for this place, its simply great! Oh and a cheap bus from airport to Los Heroes then Metro to nearest station Baquedano. Only 50m from Merced88.
