Positive points of Hospedaje Casa del Sol

  • Light, airy and well ventilated rooms on a quiet street

Negative points of Hospedaje Casa del Sol

  • Smoking inside by both owners and guests - bedrooms are directly off the living room
  • Wiring not tacked to walls, it crosses sections of the room, hanging across corners
  • Owners argue in the communal areas
  • Ants in the living room
  • No way to lock guest room doors
  • Beds not made on arrival - the sheets are handed over with an explanation of how to use pillow cases and sheets
  • Unfriendly atmosphere, a definite feeling that the owners are kindly allowing guests to stay in their house
  • TV permanently on, even if no-one has been watching it for hours

Local attractions and facilities

  • Santiago has everything a modern capital city has - endless restaurants, bars, nightclubs plus museums and tourist sites

Would we return? Probably not. Finding budget accommodation in Santiago can be difficult - most, including this one, do not have signs up outside. In the light of that if we are back in Santiago we may return to this hospedaje, but it is not likely.
