Poor 2.0
Private room with ensuite. Do not stay!!!
Our room was not clean!!!! Don't stay here. Its been the worst place we have stayed in the whole of South America and we are not fussy travellers. We also had a private bathroom which was also dirty, so dirty in fact I did not even want to use it. We went for this hostel as it had high reviews but it definitely wasn't at a high standard. The breakfast that was included was also rubbish.

Decent location. Avoid if staying on Friday night.
Hotel was nice but we were there on Friday night so there were riots/protests outside until about 2:30 a.m. We stayed in a private room with private bathroom which was nice. Towels were provided. Breakfast was decent. The staff was very nice. They have games available and beverages to purchase along with nice clean shared common spaces.

Very good 8.0
Booked by last minute and it was an amazing surprise... Excellent location, stuffs and also the people. Quite simple breakfast, but excellent for a Hostel. Love it!
George, us3 night romance trip
Good 6.0
Friendly staff but overpriced
Whilst the staff were friendly I think the private room with ensuite was expensive for what it was. I ended up with a room right beside the front desk, which wasn’t the best set up for noise. I had to ask for toilet paper and towel, and my towel was not replaced on the second day of my stay. The bathroom was very cramped

Very good 8.0
Great location and Comfortable Hostel
The Staff was professional and friendly and the overall experience was pleasant. Bathrooms were small and showers were acceptable at best. However, Hostal Forestall is in the best location in Santiago. For the price, it is worth every peso
