The warm and friendly employees ( Max especially ), the ideal location near ATM and large supermarket and business/tourist location and Pargue Chile immediate and Pargue Independecia a brief stroll away. The beautiful backyard and adjacent rooms a real plus as nicely as the cooking area for meal preparation. Great breakfast included! Safety is superb locked front gate.

It was in a pretty safe and quiet location. Straightforward to walk to the center and traveller agencies.

Specially cleanliness and location. Just across a market place and about 15 mins on foot to Plaza independencia. The private double room was really good! Good breakfast too, with some kind of home-made bread.

The hostel was clean and well presented and the staff work hard to maintain it during the day. The kitchen equipment could do with an update though, especially those cutting boards. . eew! Also there is only one dishcloth for use throughout the day, and by the time several people get through it, it's pretty disgusting. I did ask for more and received them, however a few minutes later they were all put away again by the staff and the same crusty one remained. We stayed in room 5, the premium room It was very large and maintained the charm of the era of the house. Would have been nice to have a plug for the bathtub and some soap or bath gel though, to make full use of the bathroom. Also I was a bit put off by having to pay for the use of the lockers, although this site correctly states that it is a 'purchasable extra', the hostel's site states it is included in the rate. We were disappointed with the hostel's promotion of the bikes and wines tour, which honestly, was a complete shambles. Firstly we were told the pick-up was at 10am, however we were picked up at 11 and had to rush through the tour, not getting to all the wineries. Secondly there are posters in the hostel advertising a 'free' transfer, however when we got to the company we learned it was 25 pesos for the pick up. This is not necesarily Hostel Alamo's fault, although I think they should review their alliance with such an unprofessional operation. (We spoke to other people that day that had the same experience and were not too pleased with bikes and wines either). Overall Hostel Alamo was clean and pleasant and the staff were lovely, however just updating a few small things would really take it to a higher level from all the other hostels, something I think it is trying to achieve.

It has an excellent location but was loud most of the day and night. Thin walls and creaky doors!

My wife and I stayed for 4 nights inside the convenience double with ensuite (Rm1). It was huge and really comfy indeed. When we booked on hostel bookers, Alamo emailed us to say they had double booked the standard room and asked no matter whether we would mind taking the double convenience for an extra 5 pesos a night. We agreed and are really glad we did. Other than poor water pressure inside the shower and an endless stream of people for the 1 internet terminal, it was excellent. The people there were really sociable, cooking each night and so on but it is not a party hostel. We would extremely recommend this one.

  Tamara S. on 16 April 2010 

It's a nice hostel, very central located. The rooms are a bit tiny and the amount of water in the shower isn't much (especially the warm water). You can arrange a lot of excursions from the hostel, but the information isn't always correct. For example they didn't tell us that we had to wait for 3 hours! with paragliding and also they didn't tell us the bus to Maipu leaves from a different street. And if you're longing for a nice swim in the swimmingpool don't go there. because it's very small. you could only dip your too.

  Simon H. on 28 March 2010 

There was a mix up with our booking and also the staff we fantastic about fixing it up and making our stay an excellent one. They were also really helpful planning our way up the andes. The spot was also clean and a quiet right after a long day of hiking :)

  Kirsty B. on 28 March 2010 

The double room was big and it had a nice eating outdoor area with a BBQ to use. The drinks sold there weren't too expensive and it was right opposite a huge supermarket.
