Lonely Planet review
You'll think you're in the wrong place when you show up to this busy apartment building on Santiago's main square. Take the elevator to the 6th floor to reach the suprisingly cheery hostel that sports tiny dorms, a well-equipped communal kitchen, and great balconies with views over the Plaza de Armas. All in all, it's a solid budgeteers' buy.
Our independent authors have visited Plaza de Armas Hostel and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Santiago.
