Only stayed a few nights in La Chimba, but they were very enjoyable. It's very well located, close to both tourist attractions and good places to eat. I say unique as the hostel is a random mishmash of buildings all combined to make one hostel. It's no bad thing, the hostel certainly has character and it's very clean and well... More

Arrived deliriously tired from Australia to a cool looking hostel and met with friendly and helpful staff. Booked two beds in a 4 bed dorm but luckily had the room to ourselves. Beds very comfortable. The hostel provides the usual stuff you want. Lots of open outdoor space to meet others and hang out, helped give the hostel a very... More

This hostel is huge! It is on the pricey side, but for the money you get loads of massive social areas, really big kitchen, good dorms with lockers at the end of each bed, ok showers. Plus, excellent location!

I spend two nights in la chimba. About the location: GREAT, is near of everything, and if you like to go out at night you have all the best places so close, you can do everything just walking, and is really near of the center. About the place: The hostel has a nice decoration, but it`s a little bit old,... More

Stayed La Chimba twice on my trip. Stayed three days at the beginning and was busy but still quiet enough for you to sleep but still active enough for you to meet travelers and mingle. The location is brilliant in Bellavista and close to downtown and all the main attractions. The pre-arrival information was spot on and give you great... More

I stayed for 3 nights in a 6 person dorm. Enjoyed it, nice staff, perfect location. You can pretty much walk anywhere. They throw some activities but the place is big and you can stay out of the crowd if you don't want to join in. Good beds, clean rooms and facilities. Highly recommend it.

This is one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. If you are a somewhat experienced backpacker or traveller you will like this place. Great location, chilled atmosphere with friendly staff, close friendships with other guests, cool activities and stuff to do. The fast wifi is also the best I ever came across un South America.

It's walkable to most attractions in Santiago. The rooms were clean, and really easy to meet other travelers. Enjoyed the pub crawl. Thing I didn't like was that there weren't enough outlets in the dorm for 4 people wanting to charge laptops and phones.

Great loction and very nice staff. We stayed in a private double room, the room was okay and the bed were comfortable. In general its what I expect from a hostel. It´s a bit noisy and the breakfast is okay. Considering the price, location and friendly staff; I would definitivly stay here again.

We only stayed one night at this hostel and I'm very glad. The 8 bed dorm we were in was absolutely freezing, no heating. But the beds are comfortable enough. The breakfast was very average - the usual bread, jam and some fruits. The staff seemed nice enough. I just think this place is way too overpriced for what it... More
