    Casaltura

    The hostel is in a great location for walkking to many of Santiago’s sights. However, being in the centre of town there are a lot of hard accelerating busses passing from the early morning and the windows don’t block out the noise. I did have a room right over the street though, one off it may have been less noisy. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was fine and there’s comfy communal areas. One thing to consider is you have to carry your luggage up several flights of creaky stairs to get to reception. For a base to explore the city for a few nights though, I would recommend it.

    I loved Casaltura! I arrived late at night, and Francisco could not have been nicer. He helped me check in, gave me ideas for what to do while I was in Santiago, and was very patient with my attempts at Spanish. I was traveling solo and ended up having the 6-bed dorm all to myself for all three nights; it was great to go exploring all day then come "home" to peace and quiet. The building itself is gorgeous, and very centrally located, just blocks away from metro stops and from the Plaza de Armas where many tours begin. The breakfast was great, and I didn't even have a chance to use the awesome rooftop terrace / garden, but it looked amazing. Casaltura was one of my favorite parts of my time in Santiago!
