We stayed at Ventana for 3 nights. The room was fine with a balcony, and all clean. The water in the showers were a little difficult though, as the water was cold for a long time and then mainly very warm once the heating worked. The breakfast was nice with as much you could eat of bread, cheese, jam, dulce... More

We have chosen Ventana due to the good reviews and they are all true. Bathroom is fine, bed and linens comfortable. They lend towels for free and so on... The Hostel is at a very good location in Santiago. Near good restaurants, the subway and all kind of facilities. A good place to chill and meet a couple of travelers.... More

We stayed at this hostel at the beginning and end of our 5 week cycle touring trip and very much appreciated the fact that they stored our cardboard bike boxes for us to collect on our way back to Australia. The cabin my husband and I slept in was very comfortable and the pool was also a pleasant treat. Also... More

He has thrown a BBQ and has invited all guests and we feeled very welcome. Breakfast is basic but enough to fill your... More

The problem with this place is the lack of cleanliness. During my visit there were only two functioning toilets for all guests and in one of them the shower was broken. The only one bathroom with functional shower was filthy and rarely was clean. Besides that, the old wooden floor makes the place very noisy, even when people aren't talking... More
