I spent a whole lot of time at Santiago Backpackers on a recent trip to South America. The hostel is conveniently located near EVERYTHING.. walking distance to supermarkets, metro, shopping, the central market, parque forestal, etc etc. If you are venturing out in Santiago and area, the owner/manager Ari is awesome - he will help you plan your day, week, month.. anything! He knows not only Santiago, he is extremely well travelled himself and can help you with basically any of your next backpacking destinations and beyond.
The hostel is one of the cleanest I saw in my travels - always clean bathrooms, clean kitchen (which never seems to happen anywhere!), comfortable beds with a reading light, shelf and also importantly, lockers that are big enough to hold all your stuff! Also, free breakfast, free WIFI, a computer for guests, TV, free activities in the evening.
Totally would recommend this to any backpacker coming through Santiago.. it was one of the best hostels out of all my travel experiences!
