La Chimba was one of our favourite hostels! It's right in Bellavista, next to lots of restaurants and bars which is really convenient. The rooms are nice, showers are hot with high pressure, and staff are helpful. The common area makes it really easy to meet other travellers as well- nice, fun vibe. Kitchen is clean and well-maintained. Would definitely... More

Location is good, staff is friendly. It's quite clean or comfortable but reasonable. Room doesn't have wifi. But in the lounge area, speed is fast enough to watch online video. And the couch area is easy to make friends. The first two days in the morning, after 8am, hot water stopped, so couldn't take a shower, which is bad.

Really nice place in a great location but some of the rooms were situated directly next to a night club, which played loud music until 4:30. Some warning about that would have been nice. In other parts of the hostel the music wasn't heard nearly as loudly.

I got a single room with a private bathroom. Really nice and quite. I couldn't felt more secure, comfy or relaxed as I did during my stay. It really was a great choice. They have thousands of different activities to offer. My favorite one was the bike and wine tour, you go by yourself, but they book it for you.... More

Located in Bella Vista neighbourhood with a ton of restaurants, street art etc. Felt safe as two or solo female traveller(s). It's close to the central district or metro station to get elsewhere in the city. Staff were super friendly and helpful. Nice hot showers but bathroom access could be limited during busy parts of the day. Unfortunately close to... More

Staff great, lots of common space, but it was so spread out (back patio, kitchen, front room, back patio), right in the middle of Barrio Bellavista so lots of bars and restaurants to go to in the area, you can also bring alcohol into the hostel! **Cons: So many bathroom showers/toilets/handles were broken, new chatty girl was so incredibly nice...

We didn't do enough research when we booked this. This hostel is in the centre of the party area on the 'poor side' of Santiago. The hostel was loud and difficult to sleep before 1am and the wifi only worked in reception. Despite this the staff were amazing and we had a really nice time.

The hostel has an overall very friendly atmosphere. Bathrooms are clean and there is plenty of hot water (which was a relief after a few of days of cold showers at the Atacama desert). The kitchen is super well equipped and there are lots of activities going on. When I arrived, the credit card machines weren't working and they didn't... More

If you are looking to go out every night then this hostel is ideal. However we weren't, but it was still a decent place to stay. Comfy beds were a nice bonus. Terrible breakfast, dry bread and tea. Staff could have been more helpful and welcoming. Stayed at worse, stayed at better.
