The location is pretty good, near important touristic points of Santiago.Everything is very clean. The heater was very good and the bed clothes are clean and comfortable. The traffic noise outside is intense, but you'll get used to... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and enjoyed our stay. We had Room 1 which is an en suite double at the front of the building. The room was good, the bed comfortable and the bathroom clean. Because it is at the front of the building there is some traffic noise which disturbed our sleep the first night, but we... More

My family stayed in one of their apartments that sleeps 4. It was modern, secure and clean. We speak little Spanish and the staff did their best to communicate and help us. Breakfast was good too. They even honored a price mistake made online to our benefit.

It's relatively cheap and close to Bellas Artes metro station. You have to make your own bed, and tear it down in the morning, but as far as hostels go it gets the job done. I guess it almost ensures that you have a clean bed. The bathrooms were decent as well.

At hostal de la barra you can find hostel kind of bed where you share the room and you make your own bed, among with very well equiped and fancy apartments up to 4 people and also private suites for 2. There a place for everyone at every price. Thank you very much... More

I didn't know it upon checking in, but apparently Hostel de la Barra has the same power as the Republic of Chile and the international financial system to set the exchange rate between US Dollars and Chilean Pesos. Yes, really. After being told that my dorm would cost $18 by the emotionless girl working at the reception desk, I proceeded... More

We are really sorry for your comment as uninformed and ask to Trip to delete it, since it we are accused of dishonest when in fact there is a complete lack of understanding on your part.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Small hostel in Santiago Chile, in Bellas Artes Lastarria neighborhood. Choosing a hostel in Santiago is not an easy task, the city is huge and there are many neighborhoods that "seem" well located but really they are not. Your days and nights will be spent mainly in Bellas Artes Lastarria because main tourist attractions, cultural centers and all the fun is around here. Our quality commitment is to offer the hostel in Santiago with the best location, in a spotless place and with friendly service. And now we also have the most beautiful tourist apartments and... in the same building than the hostel! We are waiting for you! ... more   less
