Lonely Planet review

Extra-wide bunks with well-sprung mattresses and feather quilts practically guarantee sweet dreams at this small hostel (though the beats from nearby clubs always filter in on weekends). The red-painted living room is cozy and the kitchen small but well-equipped. If only they'd put the same effort into the broken door handles or leaking showers… Still, the friendly staff bend over backwards to help.

Our independent authors have visited La Chimba Hostel and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Santiago.

Description provided by property

La Chimba Hostel has been a favourite of international backpackers and independent travelers visiting Santiago since we opened in 2005. Our guests have consistently praised our property and service over the years and among other distinctions, we were the first non-European hostel to win a World Top Ten Hoscar award. Our location in the heart of Barrio Bellavista guarantees a fun and interesting stay.

La Chimba is a unique, eclectic property comprised of different buildings, each with its own character, some quiet, some social, all connected by labyrinthic walkways, patios and courtyards. It is easy to meet people in our three living rooms, two kitchens or our awesome Pool Salon. We also have an art gallery displaying fine artwork from local and international artists.

Our young staff is always ready to suggest authentic places for those wanting to get under the skin of the city. Our activity manager is always planning fun events for our guests such as barbecues, dinners, salsa lessons, poker nights and walking tours, among others. Guests can at any time use our world’s best hostel Pool Salon, the football, the movie room and even a pinball machine.

Digital nomads will love our unrivaled internet connectivity with our dedicated fiber-optic internet service that spreads free high-speed Wi-fi through the entire property allowing all our guests painless internet access at all times.

Our neighborhood is packed with the city’s best bars and restaurants, and clubs. The famous Santiago's Pub Crawl tour, that gathers travelers from all around town, has its meeting point in the bar across the street from us, and the crawl never ventures more than four blocks from our door.

You must be 18 or older to check in to La Chimba.

Travelers over 35 may only book private rooms.
