My friend and I arrived here for our first night in South America. It was a really nice hostel in a good location. Located just 20meters or so away was The Main Street with numerous cafes, bars and restaurants. The wifi was good, the rooms were clean and the staff were really friendly. There is also a lot of social... More

I chose this hostel because of the ratings it received and I was not let down. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Accommodations were spacious and nice for the price. I stayed here twice on my travels back and forth between Easter Island and the second time staying we didn't have a reservation and all the rooms were booked.... More

Staff were all very friendly and created a very cool vibe within the Hostel. Clean throughout. Wifi was great throughout the hostel. Breakfast was very basic. You can bring your own drinks into the hostel. Beers are passed around regularly.

Having finished my travels in Santiago it was fitting that my final hostel was the pick of the bunch. La Chimba came highly recommended to me and I can now see why, the atmosphere was perfect and the staff were the most friendly and helpful I had come across. The breakfast was better than the others I had experienced and... More

This hostel has a lot of character. It is in a relatively central part of Santaigo with lots of bars and restaurants around. We were fine safety wise, however after we left three people got mugged right near the hostel. It is a great hostel to party and meet people, and the staff and activities really cater to that sort...

Santiago was my first stop and la chimba was recommended by friends. I arrived at 1:00pm but check in wasn't till 3. I understand policy but the room I was in had no one in it but I had to wait till three to go into it. So I slept on the couch. It's close to everything and the pub... More

Best part of this hostel is the great staff. I ran into some trouble and they were very helpful and kind. Also the ambiance is great. There is also a bathroom with a rain showerhead that is very nice to use. Thanks so much for all of your help!

Laid back, cool and friendly are some of the words I would use to describe this hostel. Meeting new people and making friends has never been easier. Dorms are relatively pricy at US$25, but it makes up excessively for the fact that you can bring and enjoy your own alcoholic beverages onto hostel premisis. One of the few hostels you'll... More

Really fun hostel. Perfect place to meet new people and have a bit of fun in the process. Prices are decent and vibe is great. Would not suggest it to families as it perhaps not entirely appropriate for children, but it the best option by far for young travellers. Staff are very friendly and helpful.
