Ann Donald thinks…

"I stayed in the single room looking over the street. Loved the neighbourhood, easy access to metro and shops. Helpful staff."

Opened in 2012 by a California surfer, we are a rare hostel that is located a short walk from everything, yet free of the crush of the city - EARPLUGS AREN'T NECESSARY for a good night’s sleep. Close to metro Baquedano in Barrio Providencia. Check the map and you'll see we are truly at the center of it all! ...and have you heard of our SKATEBOARDING HOSTEL DOG??

--OCTOBER UPDATE!-- We now have CARDS AGAINST HUMANITY, TWISTER, CLUE and other games :) Read more

About Castillo Surfista Hostel

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 5 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 traveler 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 working WIFI, a large patio with BBQ and herb garden, spacious kitchen, LED TV connected to a hard drive packed with movies, 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 and 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 are so confident in our WIFI, we will refund 1.000 CLP per person for every day it´s not working**

-full kitchen open for use 24 hours

-Wi-Fi throughout the entire house (we have 2 routers working hard)

-simple breakfast included

-large English book exchange

-movies and tv programs on hard drive

-leave your surfboard, backpack, and/or other gear here and we'll safely store it for free until you return.

-Secure car parking 2.500 CLP per night.

-hot showers working 24 hours a day

-Have a camper van or rental car delivered to the hostel, fully equipped and ready for your Chilean adventure. Email us for details.

It is very important that you specify your arrival time. Also include your flight number. Thanks!

Our normal reception hours are between 8am and 11pm (on Sunday the office opens at 9am). SORRY, NO CHECK-INS BETWEEN 1AM AND 6AM. If you arrive early, we can store your bags and let you use the common area until your check-in time. (And dude, arriving at 5am and sleeping on the common area couch until your 12:30 check-in is not cool)


Sorry, this hostel may not be suitable for young children. If you plan to bring children, they will be charged as an extra guest(s). NO EXCEPTIONS.

Location Information


Calle Maria Luisa Santander 0329
Providencia, Santiago de Chile

Close to metro Baquedano, our location is in a secure area of great historical, cultural and natural value, and is just steps away from the typical places of the city:

-Parque Bustamante
-Rio Mapocho
-Parque Forestal
-Indoor climbing wall and skate park a 2 minute walk away.
-free park gym and cafe
-a large supermarket, Laundromats, restaurants and more.
-Barrio Italia

I know the importance of a good night's sleep while on the road. We are one of the rare (and probably only) Santiago hostels where you can walk to the party spots at night and awake to peaceful silence and the chirp of birds in the morning.
