This experience was amazing . The hostel staff always help me with my schedule. I had oportuno it's to did tours for free or for half price. If you like party, speak English and meet people from all world this is the place. I had a great time here . Unfortunately I came back to my country, but I'm sure if I have a new change do come back I will.
Also I had a private room and made great friends. The hostel offers free events and sometimes I didn't spend money with food and that thing helped me out to much. You could save money . I worked only 25 hours per week, so, I could enjoy Santiago .
