Lonely Planet review

Recent renovations and colorful new wall-sized murals have added some visual appeal to this lively hostel. Dorms with bunkbeds are functional and bathrooms basic; the private single and doubles offer slightly more charm. Also on the menu are Chilean cooking classes, live music, bike rentals, weekly asados (barbecues) and poetry readings.

Our independent authors have visited Hostal Forestal and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Santiago.
