Good Hostel, Cool Communal Areas
Good, clean hostel with friendly staff around 24-7 at the front desk to help out with any queries you may have. Was low season when I was there so was fairly quiet, but there are some really cool communal areas, including lots of outdoor seating space around a swimming pool so I imagine that would be pretty cool in the summer. It's in the Brasil neighbourhood, where there are a fair few restaurants/bars nearby and lots of cool street art in the area. Within about 10-15 mins walk from the historical city centre and 15 mins walk from the Memory & Human Rights Museum. Kind of far from Bellavista which is where more of the trendy bars/restaurants are - there are plenty of hostels in that area if you're more interested in that.

Great pool
I loved the pool and patio area. It was fabulous. The room did not have air conditioning and wifi did not work in the dorm. The hostel was generally clean and breakfast was good.
