Lonely Planet review
Off the beaten path and run by a California surfer, this renovated house features homey dorms and doubles, tidy communal areas and laid-back hosts who can help you access the surf scene - the owner even runs daylong surf trips to lesser-known breaks and arranges Wicked camper rentals if you want to venture to the beaches alone.
Our independent authors have visited Castillo Surfista Hostel and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Santiago.

Description provided by property
**Winner of the Tripadvisor 2013 Excellence Award**
Come and witness chile's current surfing boom through a boutique-style fusion of california surfer and knights of the round table, nestled within a large 100 year old house in santiago's best and safest location - only a 10 minutes' walk from metro baquedano, barrio bellavista, cerro san cristobal, and plaza italia (the 'time's square' of santiago.)
My name is jonathan, a lifelong traveller and surfer. This hostel is new, a place i created for tourists, backpackers, students, ocean lovers, and gonzo spirit soul surfers. This is a bright remodeled house with age and a magical almost ghostly vibe, where i decided not to cram the rooms with beds so you and intimate groups of new friends can stretch out and have the entire house to yourselves, complete with a large patio with bbq, garden, hidden grotto, spacious kitchen, led tv and nintendo wii room, dining room with a big lion-headed chandelier, and a computer room with free internet.
The tables are shaped like surfboard tails, the lights fixtures are antique gothic candle bulbs, the floors are checkered like an a 80's music video, and the back patio is home to a skateboarding dog. You'll never find a hostel like this anywhere else.
We provide all the usual benefits:
-full kitchen open 24 hours a day
-free wi-fi throughout the entire property
-leave your surfboard, backpack, and/or other gear here and we'll safely store it for free until you return.
-movies, 2 separate gardens to relax in, and more...
The chilean coastline is my specialty. So when you're refreshed and ready to go, my friendly staff can direct you to the best beaches, beach hostels, and even help arrange cabana rentals and surf classes.
