Being located in Providencia, it is away from all the hustle and bustle of the city. However, it is close to a lot of the neighbourhoods of interest like Bellavista, Brasil and the center. It was nice to use this place as a base and explore the rest of Santiago and very close to the subway, supermarkets and restaurants. The... More

We only stayed here for 2 nights, a bit to short to see everything from Santiago. This hostel is located just outside all the crazy busy hectic atmosphere of Santiago. It is only a 5 minute walk from the subway station. The hostel is bit hard to find as the logo is very small and on the side of the... More

So I guess, after spending some time traveling, you know what you like: Small hostels, lovely, genuinely interested and helpful staff, clean and orderly facilities? And you like to meet people who like to hang out on a patio and share a glass of wine or two? Then you are exactly at the right place Castillo Surfista provides all that... More

What an amazing place! Love this hostel. Booked for four days and I'm still here for almost a month now. The staff is amazing - super helpful, always funny and we had some amazing evenings. Love the big, skateboarding dog 😉 Highly recommended place!

Stayed for 2 nights, one in a dorm and the other in a private. Both options are incredibly comfortable. The staff team are great, 'Bob' (that's not his name,but what the locals call him) was excellent and extremely helpful from the outset. The location is around a 15 minute walk to Bellavista and has a supermarket 1.5 blocks away. Great... More

We stayed for only one night, but definitely could've stayed longer. The twin room was clean and beds comfortable. Shared facilities super clean. Breakfast was ok, nothing to complain about. Fantastic and helpful staff. Location not bad, a quick walk from the metro. The only complaint (and it's not even an actual complaint) is that we arrived late and it... More

We only stayed for one night but wish we had longer. The hostel had a very chilled out vibe with an awesome patio and the staff organised a very fun evening with a BBQ and beer pong. The dorm was spacious and very clean. The hostel is only a 10min walk from the closest metro and 15min walk to where... More

I highly recommend this hostel for anybody who is looking for a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere. All the staff are exceptionally hospitable. Georgia, in particular, was exceedingly friendly- she showed my friends and I around the city and assisted us in sorting out bus tickets for New Years in Valpairiso; an absolute legend. This hostel was absolutely fantastic and caters... More

The hostel itself is more in a residential-area, but there are some restaurants and a supermarket nearby. All rooms were super clean and the dorm spacious. There lockers for everyone and you get a key fro the front door and gate. The shower has good water-pressure and hot water. Wifi was stable and ok-speed. The staff was friendly and helpful.... More

I cannot really fault this hostel, but I didn't enjoy my stay here. The hostel has a great lounge room and dining room. Breakfasts were OK - standard toast and jam, but you get a selection of jam flavours and fruit also. One day there was waffles instead of toast. The kitchen was old but clean. Annoying that people kept... More
