Ventana Sur epitomises what a hostel should be about. Ivan the owner is really helpful and friendly and will ensure you have the best time possible. We stayed in the private double room which has a balcony over-looking the swimming pool. The day I arrived I had food poisoning, and after a few hours of being seriously ill, with the... More

We stayed two nights at Ventana Sur and thoroughly enjoyed it. Ivan the host is super friendly, helpful and a wealth of local knowledge. The area is quiet with lots of small restaurants, and a large store nearby. To walk into the main center takes about 30mins and passes through some nice parks. We stayed in the private room with...

We wrote an email, 3 days before we arrived, to ask about the transfer from the airport to the hostel but they never answered. The room, as "private bungalow" advertised, is just a private room and nothing special. We stayed there for 4 nights and in this time they never cleaned our room or changed the garbage bag from the... More

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

We have enjoyed our stay in Ventana Sur. Staff and owner Ivan have been very nice and helpful. Ivan is a very nice guy who is open for a chat or to share some vine or Pisco. He has thrown a BBQ and has invited all guests and we feeled very welcome. Breakfast is basic but enough to fill your... More
